Chris Martin's tattoo thrill

Chris Martin loves getting tattoos because it gives him a "buzz".

The Coldplay frontman has had several inkings since his 30th birthday last year and loves them so much he would thoroughly recommend having a piece of body art.

Chris, 31, said: "Getting tattooed is brilliant. I got a few done in my 30s and it is the best buzz ever - especially if you are married and can't take drugs.

"I would recommend getting a tattoo whether you are 70 or 12 - actually, maybe not 12. I think that might be a bit too young."

Earlier this year, it was reported Chris' wife Gwyneth Paltrow had got a tattoo in his honour.

The actress had the letter 'C' etched at the top of her right thigh to show her commitment to her husband.

Tattooist Steve Flannery said: "At first she was thinking about having a tattoo on her arm, but then decided that this might affect her acting work.

"In the end she decided on the top of her right thigh, and joked that Chris would have fun finding it.

"I asked her if the C stood for Coldplay, but she said it was definitely a C for Chris."


The anthemic indie quartet continue to steamroller all before them.
