Nicole Richie's back is a "what not to do" manual on tattoos.

For example, if you get wings, make them look big enough to actually support your body in flight. Secondly, if you plan to get a religious tat, it probably shouldn't be a cross that runs into your ass crack.

As expected, her ink doesn't stop there. Richie also has a set of tatted rosary beads, the word "virgin" on her wrist (which, since she has kids but no halo, is a reference to the astrological sign Virgo), a pair of ballet slippers on her hip, a shooting star on her wrist and a tiara on her other hip.

She also has her own last name tattooed on the back of her neck below a red bow. Which must bring pride to her father Lionel Richie.
