Lindsay Lohan isn't the only celeb with a Billy Joel tattooBilly Joel and Lindsay Lohan

Last week, photos surfaced of Lindsay Lohan with a new tattoo: a line from the 1989 Billy Joel song “I Go to Extremes” — “Clear as a crystal sharp as a knife/ I feel like I’m in the prime of my life” — inked onto the right side of her torso. While it’s inspiring that the words of one of our greatest bards can provide such light and inspiration for one of our newsiest starlets, the act of rendering Mr. Joel’s lyrics permanently onto one’s body is hardly new. It seems that quite a few celebs have fallen under the Piano Man’s spell, as evidenced in this list of Billy Joel tattoos that didn’t make the headlines:

Warren Buffett (around left wrist; obscured by watch): I’ve got the old man’s car/ I’ve got a jazz guitar/ I’ve got a tab at Zanzibar.

Sean Connery (backward across chest): You’re my castle, you’re my cabin and my instant pleasure dome.

Michiko Kakutani (top of left foot): I’m a cosmopolitan sophisticate/ Of culture and intelligence/ The culmination of technology/ And civilized experience.

Barbara Walters (right bicep): Go on and cry in your coffee/ But don’t come bitchin’ to me.

The Edge (scalp): I still belong/ Don’t get me wrong –

Bono (scalp): And you can speak your mind/ But not on my time.

Michael Bay (under left eyelid): It’s alright, it’s alright, sometimes that’s all it takes/ We’re only human, we’re supposed to make mistakes.

Henry Rollins (left arm; hidden among other tattoos): When I’m blue/ When I’m lonely/ She comes through/ She’s the only one who can/ My baby grand/ Is all I need.

Russell Crowe (backwards on forehead; visible only under blacklight): You had to be a big shot, didn’t you?/ You had to open up your mouth.

Al Roker (right bicep; Old English script): We’ve got the cumulonimbus and a possible gale/ We’ve got a force nine blowing on the Beaufort scale.



Courtney Love (left calf): So you go to the village in your tie-dye jeans/ And you stare at the junkies and the closet queens/ It’s like some pornographic magazine/ And you smile.

Jesse James (left bicep): And if I could go back and start over somehow/ I would not change that much.

Lance Bass (inside of left forearm): I bet she never had a backstreet guy/ I bet her mama never told her why.

Demi Moore (right calf): But it’s sad and it’s sweet/ And I knew it complete/ When I wore a younger man’s clothes.

Alex Trebek (entire back): Little Rock, Pasternak, Mickey Mantle, Kerouac/ Sputnik, Chou En-Lai, Bridge On The River Kwai/ Lebanon, Charles de Gaulle, California baseball/ Starkwether, Homicide, Children of Thalidomide/ Buddy Holly, Ben Hur, Space Monkey, Mafia/ Hula Hoops, Castro, Edsel is a no-go/ U2, Syngman Rhee, payola and Kennedy/ Chubby Checker, Psycho, Belgians in the Congo.

Ted Haggard (lower stomach): And it’s fine with me ’cause I’ve let it slide/ Don’t care if it’s Chinatown or on Riverside.

Jackie Chan (right shoulder blade): Captain Jack will get you high tonight/ And take you to your special island.

Alec, Daniel, William and Stephen Baldwin (insides of left forearms; one line each): How about a pair of pink sidewinders/ And a bright orange pair of pants?/ You could really be a Beau Brummel baby/ If you just give it half a chance.

James Hetfield, Dave Mustaine (insides of right wrists): We’ll get a table near the street/ In our old familiar place/ You and I, face to face.

Angelina Jolie (inside of left thigh): She’s got a way of pleasin’/ I don’t know what it is/ But there doesn’t have to be a reason.

Jennifer Aniston (inside of left thigh): If that’s movin’ up/ Then I’m movin’ out.

Margaret Thatcher, Macaulay Culkin, Madonna (various locations; different artists): I’d go crawling down the avenue/ There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do/ To make you feel my love.

George Clooney, Vladimir Putin, Angus Young, The Dalai Lama (right bicep; same artist): Every time I go out/ I always seem to get in trouble.

Tom Hanks (inside of right wrist): I don’t care what you say anymore, this is my life.

Peter Scolari (inside of left wrist): Go ahead with your own life, leave me alone.

Taylor Momsen (left armpit): Come out, Virginia, don’t let me wait/ You Catholic girls start much too late.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Pilot"

    One of our first exposures to uncomfortable “Girls” sex comes early, in the pilot episode, when Hannah and Adam “get feisty” (a phrase Hannah hates) on the couch. The pair is about to go at it doggy-style when Adam nearly inserts his penis in “the wrong hole,” and after Hannah corrects him, she awkwardly explains her lack of desire to have anal sex in too many words. “Hey, let’s play the quiet game,” Adam says, thrusting. And so the romance begins.

    Marnie and Elijah, "It's About Time"

    In an act of “betrayal” that messes up each of their relationships with Hannah, Marnie and Elijah open Season 2 with some more couch sex, which is almost unbearable to watch. Elijah, who is trying to explore the “hetero side” of his bisexuality, can’t maintain his erection, and the entire affair ends in very uncomfortable silence.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Marnie and Charlie, "Vagina Panic"

    Poor Charlie. While he and Marnie have their fair share of uncomfortable sex over the course of their relationship, one of the saddest moments (aside from Marnie breaking up with him during intercourse) is when Marnie encourages him to penetrate her from behind so she doesn’t have to look at him. “This feels so good,” Charlie says. “We have to go slow.” Poor sucker.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Shoshanna and camp friend Matt, "Hannah's Diary"

    We’d be remiss not to mention Shoshanna’s effort to lose her virginity to an old camp friend, who tells her how “weird” it is that he “loves to eat pussy” moments before she admits she’s never “done it” before. At least it paves the way for the uncomfortable sex we later get to watch her have with Ray?

    Hannah and Adam, "Hard Being Easy"

    On the heels of trying (unsuccessfully) to determine the status of her early relationship with Adam, Hannah walks by her future boyfriend’s bedroom to find him masturbating alone, in one of the strangest scenes of the first season. As Adam jerks off and refuses to let Hannah participate beyond telling him how much she likes watching, we see some serious (and odd) character development ... which ends with Hannah taking a hundred-dollar bill from Adam’s wallet, for cab fare and pizza (as well as her services).

    Marnie and Booth Jonathan, "Bad Friend"

    Oh, Booth Jonathan -- the little man who “knows how to do things.” After he turns Marnie on enough to make her masturbate in the bathroom at the gallery where she works, Booth finally seals the deal in a mortifying and nearly painful to watch sex scene that tells us pretty much everything we need to know about how much Marnie is willing to fake it.

    Tad and Loreen, "The Return"

    The only sex scene in the series not to feature one of the main characters, Hannah’s parents’ showertime anniversary celebration is easily one of the most cringe-worthy moments of the show’s first season. Even Hannah’s mother, Loreen, observes how embarrassing the situation is, which ends with her husband, Tad, slipping out of the shower and falling naked and unconscious on the bathroom floor.

    Hannah and the pharmacist, "The Return"

    Tad and Loreen aren’t the only ones to get some during Hannah’s first season trip home to Michigan. The show’s protagonist finds herself in bed with a former high school classmate, who doesn’t exactly enjoy it when Hannah puts one of her fingers near his anus. “I’m tight like a baby, right?” Hannah asks at one point. Time to press pause.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Role-Play"

    While it’s not quite a full-on, all-out sex scene, Hannah and Adam’s attempt at role play in Season 3 is certainly an intimate encounter to behold (or not). Hannah dons a blond wig and gets a little too into her role, giving a melodramatic performance that ends with a passerby punching Adam in the face. So there’s that.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Shoshanna and Ray, "Together"

    As Shoshanna and Ray near the end of their relationship, we can see their sexual chemistry getting worse and worse. It’s no more evident than when Ray is penetrating a clothed and visibly horrified Shoshanna from behind, who ends the encounter by asking if her partner will just “get out of me.”

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Frank, "Video Games"

    Hannah, Jessa’s 19-year-old stepbrother, a graveyard and too much chatting. Need we say more about how uncomfortable this sex is to watch?

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Marnie and Desi, "Iowa"

    Who gets her butt motorboated? Is this a real thing? Aside from the questionable logistics and reality of Marnie and Desi’s analingus scene, there’s also the awkward moment when Marnie confuses her partner’s declaration of love for licking her butthole with love for her. Oh, Marnie.

    13 of "Girls'" most cringeworthy sex scenes

    Hannah and Adam, "Vagina Panic"

    There is too much in this scene to dissect: fantasies of an 11-year-old girl with a Cabbage Patch lunchbox, excessive references to that little girl as a “slut” and Adam ripping off a condom to ejaculate on Hannah’s chest. No wonder it ends with Hannah saying she almost came.
