King Frederik IX tatoos don't look good.

Oh Dear! Is this a real photo - perhaps that is Frederik's head and someone else's body? I would hope so, but if not he truly does look awful.

Yes, that is a real photograph. A lot of sailors [he was in the Navy, remember] get a ton of tattoos and just because you're royalty doesn't mean you're exempt.

I also belive that the father of King Juan Carlos I of Spain had a number of tattoos.

King Paul of Greece also had tattoos. Must be part of the sailor culture, even if you're a royal!

I like King Frederick's tattoo-he reminds me, looks like a young Marlon Brando

Prince Valdermar however was not keen on that tatoo so when she was lowcut in public she hide it with her sleeve.

According to people who knew her, princess Marie was quite special with a lot of funny ideas...

mmmm do you happen to know where, or why? Did she get it when she was in Madeira or something? Or was it before marrying Franz?

Does Zara Phillip's have any tattoos? I know she had(has) her tongue pierce which makes me wonder is she's gotten inked. Any confirmed reports or pictures?

Haha. It is funny to see the reactions of people to such a thing--such shock, and scandal. It is really funny that many people do not consider tattoos a long-standing tradition in Western culture, and yet there they are...

As for criticising them, these royals do not have their tattoos out at state dinners and receptions, so the matter is personal and for them to decide on. And dear me we need to figure out this Prinzessin/Herzogin Elisabeth business...I run across it in so many of the forums...

Elisabeth, Princess of Bavaria, Duchess in Bavaria, right?
(Elisabeth Prinzessin von Bayern Herzogin zu Bayern, richtig?)

I know this is the case with the Sachsen families. And Bavaria was a kingdom by the time of her birth, right? forgive me...but we should work that out in the appropriate forum.

I really like the King of Denmark's tattoos, as they are rather antique-looking by modern standards. Is that an imperial Chinese dragon in the centre of his chest?

As for Elisabeth's tattoo, did it happen to be a snake on her wrist? That was fashionable at the time, and I think another famous royal lady had one--Alexandra of Denmark (later Queen Consort of the United Kingdom) maybe?...perhaps I'm mistaken...

Isn't princess Stephanie of Monaco the most tatooed royal person now?
I also heard rumours that prince Charles has tatoo.But I can't believe it.

Mafalda of Aosta has a tattoo on her right arm, you can see at these photos of her wedding with Alessandro Ruffo di Calabria (I think he's Queen Paola brother').

Royal Tatoos

I was wondering wich royals had tatoos. I recently discovered prince Frederic had one. Apparently, his grandpa, king Frederik had too

Caroline and Stephanie of Monaco have many too. So I was wondering for the others :)
Despite all the dificulties you face, learn what really matters in life, and never give up hope.

She is the only Monagasque princess to have tatoos. Caroline and Charlene don't have tatoos nor do Charlotte or Camille or Pauline. Thankfully.
