Ricky Martin's Tattoos

When did Ricky Martin get all these tattoos? I personally love tattoos and sport quite a few myself, but just cannot recall Ricky being such an ink lover. I found this image at People Magazine and while reading the accompaning text I was also a bit, let's say, amused:

"The Puerto Rican star is never without the company of a lady (!), or at least a tattoo of one on his left arm. And even though he’s a Buddhist, he’s got the Our Father prayer inked on his right arm in Hebrew. "

Did I sense a little sarcasm here?

Firstoff, the Lord's Prayer on his right arm is in Syriac Aramaic, not Hebrew. People Magazine got that completely wrong.

Secondly THE TATTOO IS INCORRECT. When he had the tattoo done, it was permanently inked on his arm OUT OF ORDER. :-)

See the following article for an analysis:

Ricky Martin's Mistaken Assyrian Aramaic Tattoo

Not quite as bad as what happened to Brittany Spears and her "Hebrew" tattoo, but people just don't seem to do their research.

Thanks Anon,

I had read about the mistake in his tattoo already, but thanks for the head-up!

My best,

First of all, Ricky is NOT a buddhist. He does embrace the buddhist message of love etc, but has never converted. He feels, according to his own statement, that all religions have validity.
As for the tattoos, there is one missing below the tattoo of Our Father. Have no way of knowing if it is correct or not since I do not speak aramaeic. I am sure his intent was good even if there was a mistake made.
