With the BET Awards 2021 just days away, we're sure this list will grow with stars sporting their ink as accessories on culture's biggest night.

Chris Brown has well over thirty tattoos on his body and he loves to show them off. While attending an event, the singer proudly showcased his body art while rocking this patterned designer vest.
FYI: The "Best Male R&B / Pop Artist" nominee recently added to his collection with an intricately designed, Astro Boy tattoo.
DaBaby loves to flaunt his diamonds and inked up body—especially when he's in concert. Did you know that the "Best Male Hip Hop Artist" nominee has over 30 tattoos?
Back in 2014, Jhene Aiko used her red carpet moment to show off her some of her back tattoos, which are now covered with an image of a dragon with phoenix wings.
