Miley Cyrus Gets a Tribute Tattoo To A Fallen Pet

The 22-year-old pop star got a new tat on Thursday as a tribute to her pufferfish, PBF, who recently passed away. Miley got her new tat done by celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo of Shamrock Social Club who posted an image of the design on his personal Instagram account, captioning the shot with a simple, “R I P PBF @mileycyrus.” The tiny fish is placed on the inside of her left arm, near her existing tattoo of a moon crescent. The singer who’s no stranger to tattoos hasn’t posted her memory of her late friend to her personal account but the photo has been all over the internet.

Rex Ryan’s Tattoo Of His Wife Gets a Wardrobe Change

Last last year, Rex Ryan was fired from his position of coach of the New York Jets and since then has found new work. Last month he was appointed coach of the Buffalo Bills.
As part of his “out with the old” ritual, Ryan has gotten rid of just about all Jets memorabilia including the finishing touch, the tattoo of his wife in a Jets jersey.
He came up with the $80 answer on Friday. Mr. Ryan went to an Arizona tattoo parlor, where an artist darkened the jersey’s color from Jets green to Bills blue.
“I mean, you’ve got to turn the page,” he said.

The coach also rid himself of almost all his Jets apparel. That included the black sweater vests he superstitiously wore almost every game, pieces of Jets lore that each could be worth as much as $1,000, according to collectibles-dealer Heritage Auctions.
Mr. Ryan, who is 52 years old, said he never considered holding on to Jets keepsakes or even leaving the tattoo green to remind of him of that period in life. He said his style was to immerse himself in the present.
“I’m all in,” he said.

Katy Perry’s Left Shark Finds a Permanent Home

This past Super Bowl halftime show featured an amazing performance by Katy Perry along with Lenny Kravitz and a guest performance by Missy Elliot.

As Katy performed a medley of her hits, she went through wardrobe and scene changes – as a great performer would. One of her sets were made to look like a beach scene as she performed “California Girls” and “Teenage Dream” and she was accompanied by singing beach balls, palm trees and sharks. The entire performance was an experience within itself including bloopers all over the internet of one of her shark backup dancers who seemed to be a few steps off during the performance.The internet was filled with memes, gifs and videos of #LeftShark.
An onlooker from Denver, Colorado adored Left Shark so much that he decided to immortalize the character – inking him on his calf.
