Katharine McPhee's Test-Run Tattoo

Have you ever thought about getting a tattoo but just weren’t sure about what to get or how much you’d like when on? Katharine McPhee told PEOPLE at the premiere of I Now Pronounce You Larry and Chuck that she’s been wanting a tattoo but decided to do a test run with a henna design first! The singer confesses, “I’ve been wanting a tattoo. I think sometimes they can be sexy. I went to India Town yesterday, [and] I went to the Hollywood Salon. So I just got some Henna and I love it!” But don’t hold your breath for her to get inked up anytime soon. The soon-to-be-actress may just keep the impermanent style for a little while longer. As Katharine told PEOPLE, “Maybe I’ll just keep doing Henna for a while and see if I like it.” Sounds like a plan to us! Tell us: Have you tried out henna or fake tattoos before getting the real thing?

personally i love henna and i want a real one. but first off i’m to young and second by dad would kill me. its not like they would be huge and noticable. just a litte cross on the inside of my left wrist and a heart on my hip.

Tats are for anyone who wants to express themselves in a different way. They are for anyone and everyone who wants one and not for “the LOW CLASS!” or the “TRASHY”. I hate when people assume that just because you have a tat. I am a mother of two and an educator and I have two tats. I just think that getting a tat is the most liberating experience!!! I am not saying it is for everyone, but DON’T JUDGE ME!

Hers is too big and needs more color. But…I love the idea. Mine is also on the top of my foot!

That looks more like a birth mark than a tattoo. What is she doing at this event? She is a D-lister!

tattos are a trend, just like fake boobs, people are followers.

Kat’s henna looks great! I just got henna done too, two foot prints on my ancle and a chanel sign on my foot! It is the perfect fix to getting perminantly inked up!! Love it!!

I don’t think it looks goods. She shouldn’t make it a real tattoo..

I find all the negative comments towards tattoos comical. To lable them as low class is a far cry from reality. Skin art, although trendy right now is one of the oldest forms of body modification and is not a cheap habit by any means. If you see someone with multiple tattoos, they have spent a lot of money to get te artwork done.
To the people who think that “old” tattoos are gross…..are you going to be disgusted by your body when you are 80? Niether will I, tattoos are not.
Close mindedness is low class, trashy, childish and a major social problem in this world.
