The Transformation of Denise Richards Tattoos
Denise Richards tattoos have taken a bit of a transformation in recent years. The former model turned actress has only one piece of ink but it is one of those sad love affairs gone bad stories so the original short-lived tattoo was covered.
There always seems to be some confusion over Denise Richards tattoos for some reason with people thinking that she has two but sometimes it is just hard to get past her beauty to focus on which ankle her ink is displayed on.
During the 1990s, Denise played in several roles on television and on the big screen in Starship Troopers, The World is Not Enough, Saved by the Bell and Married With Children but her popularity really exploded when she played alongside Neve Campbell in Wild Things.
Throughout the 2000s, she appeared in Scary Movie 3, Valentine, Seinfeld, Friends, Spin City and Two and a Half Men, which leads to the first contribution of Denise Richards tattoos.
Actor Charlie Sheen is behind the first of the Denise Richards tattoos which was simply the word Charlie written in cursive on the inside of her left ankle. Richards married Sheen in 2002 and they had two beautiful daughters, Sam and Lola. During their marriage, they got tattoos of the names of each other but in 2005, Richards filed for divorce.
The two did seek marriage counseling for a bit but in 2006, she proceeded with the divorce claiming Sheen had become unreasonable and was threatening to kill her. While Sheen had his Denise tattoo removed off his wrist, she decided to add to the Denise Richards tattoos and have his name covered up.
The transitioning period in her life lead to the next contribution to the Denise Richards tattoos. She chose a winged fairy to cover the name of her ex-husband. Fairy tattoos have extremely personal meanings attached to them. They are designed to emphasize an idea of personification and often symbolize a new chapter in the wearer’s life. Fairies can also commemorate innocence and youth.
The fairy worn in this one of the Denise Richards tattoos is beautifully done in very neutral and earthy tones. That is the greatest thing about fairies, they are quite diverse so they can be vibrant and wild to grab attention, dark and mysterious or more reserved. Richards has proved she isn’t shy after posing for her nude pictorial in Playboy so it is quite interesting that she would choose a pattern and color palette that just seems relatively soft-spoken for her. Perhaps motherhood is positively shaping the next chapter in her personality.
