Pamela Anderson backed out of getting a Kid Rock tattoo (update)

Pamela Anderson was at the tattoo artist about to get inked with her new husband Kid Rock’s name when she had a reminder of how fleeting relationships can be. The tattoist told her that he’d recently done some work on her ex husband, Tommy Lee. That is said to have reminded her of the ring tattoo of Tommy’s name she had around her wedding finger, which she changed to “Mommy!” once they broke up. Pamela hightailed it out of there, and it’s a good thing because her relationship with Rock lasted only a few weeks longer:

Here’s a PAMELA ANDERSON story I heard last week, but now I’m glad I didn’t tell you – because her decision to divorce KID ROCK makes it a truly poignant tale! Pam popped into Vancouver’s West Coast Tattoo to ink her new hubby’s name on her bod… but suddenly paused when the tattoo artist bragged he’d just illustrated the skins of the “Rock Star: Supernova” cast – including ex-hubby TOMMY LEE. In a sudden memory of how fleeting love can be, Pam eyed her ring finger – where Tommy’s name had been tattooed in happier days – then nixed a Kid Rock tat, saying: “Maybe I’d better wait and see how things work out!” (WHEW!…Close call, girlfriend.)

It seems like the only names you should ever get tattooed with are the names of your parents or kids, or maybe a friend who has died who you can no longer argue with.

There may be another reason Pam decided against getting a tattoo at that point. She claimed that she contracted Hepatitis C from Tommy Lee after sharing a tattoo needle with him. So any tattoos she got while she was married to him must remind her of their failed relationship and the chronic illness he left her with. That didn’t stop her from running back to him for a public makeout session after she filed for divorce, though.

Anderson has said that she’s coping with her divorce from Kid Rock by doing lots of baking and home decorating. From what I remember of an MTV show I saw of her house, she likes that feminine shabby chic french country style. Maybe she should call up Tori Spelling to come help her out.

Update: Popoholic has a top five list of celebrity tattooed babes. Pamela Anderson comes in at five, and Angelina Jolie predictably tops the list. Her “Know your rights” upper back tatoo was visible at the NY premiere of The Good Shephard this week.

    What?! Pam decided to NOT mutilate her body?!

    I think tattoos are such a bad idea. I got my first one at 15 (the same one Angelina has on her arm, though I didn’t realize I was an AJ poser) and another one at 18 and I really regret it. Thankfully I got them in unseen areas (hip and back) because it’s easier to find a decent job w/o ink and holes all over me. (I took out all 5 piercings, too.)

    This is the “Fun” part about tattoos, they are permanent. Better be sure of putting something important.

    Nice to know that she is capable of demonstrating good judgement on some occasions.

    This is possibly the only sensible thing that Pamela Anderson has done in her screwed up life.
