Fake Star Tattoos: The Hottest Accessory In Hollywood Today

At least, we think they’re fake. Rachel Bilson never struck us as the neck tattoo type, but stranger things have happened.

On Wednesday, both Bilson and Scarlett Johansson debuted some fresh astronomical ink. Johansson, left, displayed matching nautical stars adorning each shoulder, which she framed by way of a clingy Tees by Tina tank top and exposed bra strap. A wavy brunette wig and cutoffs completed her character’s look on the set of Chef.

Bilson, on the other hand, arrived at the L.A. airport sporting a constellation of colorful stars climbing up her neck and behind her ear. In shades of purple, green and blue, they matched her multicolored sweater — and surely gave inspiration to festivalgoers everywhere this summer.

Tell us: What do you think of this temporary (we think) tattoo trend? Would you try something bold like this for fun?

I hope that they are not real, but their bodies to do what they want to do. Obviously not a fan of tats here.

Not a fan (and I have 2 tattoos).

I tend to get bored with (sometimes irritated by) things I see every day, and while I’m not against other people having tattoos, I never understand why “creative” people do it. And sorry, these star tattoos are for preschoolers, permanent or temporary.

A neck tattoo is basically a way of saying, “Hey, My name is Rachel and I have served time in prison and am mentally unstable!”

I’m guessing they are fake and for a role they are playing. Calm down people.

Do people commenting not bother reading the accompanying text? (I hesitate to call it an article) They’re obviously fake, though Scarlett’s is the only one for a role. Rachel is probably just having fun. BIG DEAL either way!!
