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?

I think it’s up to you whether you want to permanently scar your own body or not. I just wonder if young women think about what that tat is going to look like when they’re older and wearing a ‘mother of the bride’ dress.

Oh GOD NO! I hope she doesn’t do a real one! A fake one is fine, and I do like that this one is not black or blue, but I hope she doesn’t do a real one!!

I like Kat McPhee…but that tatoo is just hideous (so is the dress)…I agree w/ Chrissy…I like tatoos, but I dont like tatoos w/ a lot of color…and when I mean I like tatoos—it’s to a certain point—I would get a small one on my ankle or wrist….
…I think they’re kinda cool:)…

I never had a fake tattoo, I just went in and got the real thing.

I think tattoos are just another way of expressing yourself. One of my really good friends has two-one on the top of her foot that says “Desidero Domini” (latin for “I want to be with my God) and another on her wrist, but I forgot what that one says.

I think she should get one on her lower back. Or may b on her neck where no one could see it.
