Lady Gaga opts for prison-style tattoo on Brazil trip

LADY GAGA had a prison-style tattoo inked on her neck during a recent trip to Brazil.

The Poker Face hitmaker headed to Brazilian tattoo artist Daniel Tucci's parlour in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro with the bizarre request.

He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "Gaga came to me and said she wanted a tattoo that looked like something done in a prison - edgy, gray, I suppose a bit scary.

"She wanted a design that a fan had given her, the word 'Rio' where the letter 'I' was the Christ.

"She told me she wanted it to look like a prison tattoo, not a nice design, a bit shadowy. 'Like something done in prison,' was the term she used.

"She didn't want it to look really sharp but more like an amateur tattoo. It's on the back of her neck, just below the hairline - she got her hair especially shaped to show the design. She was laughing with her friend and listening to music all through the inking. She never flinched with the pain."

The star already has 14 tattoos on her body.
