Yes, much like a girl I knew when I was 18, and also another girl I knew when I was 18, Kelsey Grammer got a tattoo on his hip. You can see the proof in that moderately disturbing photo up there. Look at his expression. And, in case you missed it, what’s with that bulge in his jeans? I don’t know, you guys. I don’t know about all this.
But what tattoo did Kelsey get? Why, it’s the name of his latest wife, Kayte Walsh! Here’s what it looks like:
That ended up on Kelsey’s hip in blue ink. There’s no word yet on if he got the design embellished with hearts and stars at the last minute or not.
“He was pretty cool about it,” said Bob Jones, owner of Insight Studios, which has been open at 1062 N. Milwaukee since 2005. “He said it was his first tattoo and he did some research and said, ‘You guys seemed to be the best place to go.’ ”
A 21-year-old employee who works at the front counter at the shop was apparently unaware of his fame.
When Grammer walked to the counter, she said, “ ‘Can I get your ID, please?’ ” Jones said. “He was like, ‘Huh?’ [She said,] ‘Yeah, I need your ID.’ He said, ‘OK.’ She came back to me and said, ‘Is this guy famous or something? He looked at me kind of funny when I asked for his ID.’ ”
Tattoo artist James Eastwood’s 72-year-old grandmother, Christine Darbo, was accompanying a friend planning to get a tattoo when they started chatting with the former “Cheers” and “Frasier” star and his wife.
“They were just normal people. We were talking about tattoos,” said Darbo, a Wheaton plant saleswoman who has two tattoos. “He said, ‘I’m going to get Kayte’s name.’ My friend asked, ‘So how long have you been dating that he wanted to tattoo your name?’ She said, ‘We are married.’ I figured with his background he should just put a ‘K’ with a period to give him some flexibility.”
Oh man, you guys. It’s going to be hard to top this story for me today. I’ll cross my fingers for something about Jennifer Lawrence or another funny interview with Rihanna, but I’m really worried that I used all of my giggles for today on this one.
What do you think about all this?
