Collecting autographed celebrity photos can be a great hobby for anyone looking to spend their time doing something constructive. Celebrities can often inspire us to be more, do more, and achieve more in our own lives after looking at their success stories. It is only natural that many of us would try to collect some memorabilia reflecting the way that these people have affected our lives. Once we begin to start a collection, however, many of us are faced with the problem on what to do with it. Some people hang these photos on our walls, but that may not be an option for some of us. There is an easy solution, however.
If you want a great way to proudly display all of your favorite autographed celebrity photos, you should start by putting together a scrapbook with all of the pieces that you have collected. Some traditional photo albums could work well for this project, as they have pages which can hold photos of all sizes. When you couple this with the fact that you will want some form of protective covering for your photos, this is an idea which comes together well to provide a solution with what to do with all of these collectible photos.
If you aggressively pursue collecting these photos from a variety of methods, you will quickly begin to gain a number of these memorabilia items. From collecting these autographs yourself, to buying them in auctions online, or even with writing directly to the celebrities themselves, if you wish to collect these autographed celebrity photos, you can easily begin to find success. You will soon begin to need a place to store these photos, however, and you can find that a scrapbook would be a good place to start.
Using a book, you can organize these photos in a variety of ways. You can place the celebrations in the book by alphabetical order, rearranging the placement of each celebrity every time that a new photo is obtained. You could do the book according to the type of celebrity you receive a photo of, from movie stars, to sports stars, or even politicians. The way that you choose to arrange your autographed celebrity photo scrapbook is entirely up to you, but using a book will absolutely give you the freedom to arrange the photos in any way that you desire.
Making a scrapbook is a great hobby for anyone and works well with autographed celebrity photos. Often there will be other items which you might want to save along with the photo, such as a personal note which the celebrity might have written to you. Framing the note on its own could be a hassle, but when you stick it into a scrapbook right next to the autographed photo, the note is preserved. Ticket stubs could have been an important part of a collection and these could find their way into a scrapbook, helping to keep the memories forever. Whatever the purpose, an autographed celebrity photo scrapbook can be one of the best options for keeping these memorabilia items safe forever.
Rebels in motorcycles, rock stars with drug problems, prisoners under long-term sentences-the rowdy people usually associated with tattoo art are a concept of the past. Now, even college students with straight A's, beauty queens and bankers sport their own tattoos. Even famous people such as actors and musicians have their own celebrity tattoos. And because tattoo art has emerged from the underground scene to become a mainstream form of body enhancement, different variations and types of tattoo ink are now being used to push the envelope of tattooing.
UV tattoos (or black light tattoos) are created using white tattoo ink or a special kind of ink that only becomes visible under black light. This type of tattoo ink has been used in celebrity tattoos and is currently more expensive than regular tattoo ink. Tattoo art done with white ink or UV ink can be more painful, though, than those made with regular tattoo ink since thicker and more high-quality ink has to be used. But this has not stopped Hollywood A-listers to get their own white ink tattoo. Kate Moss started the trend and a lot of young women followed suit. Interestingly, though, no male celebrity was reported as getting or sporting a white ink tattoo. Below are four beautiful stars who dared to be different with this type of tattoo.
* Kate Moss. The supermodel, fashion designer and mother of one has had a number of tattoos done over the years. Beside small, dainty tattoos of swallows on her lower back, a heat on her left hand, a crown on her left shoulder and an anchor on her right forearm, this stunning beauty was reported to have numerous stars in white tattoo ink done all over one side of her body.
Lindsay Lohan. This wild girl had her first tattoo art done on her forearm-a tiny, black outline of a star. She soon became addicted to this form of body art and her collection of tattoos including the words "la bella vita" on her lower back. Inspired by a John Lennon quote ("Get out there and get peace, think peace, live peace, and breathe peace, and you'll get it as soon as you like"), Lindsay had the word "breathe" tattooed in white ink on her wrist.
* Jasmine Lennard. The feisty English model, reality TV star and ex-girlfriend of American Idol's Simon Cowell transformed her body into a canvas for tattoo art by having Simon's initials inked on the inside of her arm. She also has the words "trust no one" tattooed on a finger. She also hit the parlor-not for a blowdry-but for a white ink tattoo, which spelled "amore appassionato" (love passionately). She says she saw Lindsay Lohan's own white ink tattoo and was inspired to get one herself.
* Khloe Kardashian. This rebellious reality TV star has numerous tattoo art in different parts of her body. She says that each tattoo she has something something to her. She has the word "Daddy" with a cross on the small of her back, the words "I love you" in her late father's handwriting on her wrist, and her husband's initials on her hand. She also has the letters "KK," which are the initials of all her sisters, done in white ink on her wrist.
Tattoo art has come a long way from being insignias of gangs or a good way to pass the time in prison. Tattoos are now considered a form of art and even grace Hollywood's hottest. But even if almost everyone you know has got a tattoo, you can choose to still be different by taking it a step further like Lindsay Lohan or Kate Moss. Try a white ink tattoo or a UV ink tattoo to definitely stand out from the crowd.
