Tattoo King Won't Do Celebrities!

Or he will, but he'd actually rather not.

At an Empire Hotel party for his fashion line yesterday, Miami Ink's Ami James told me he's not starstruck when it comes to doling out tats.

"I'm a street guy," he said.

"To me, it's like street art.

"Doing celebrities is not my thing.

"I'd rather do a guy who walks in off the street and says, 'Look, I want a whole sleeve ...'"

So if Meryl Streep saunters into his parlor, forget it, honey!

Or actually, he'd probably pass her on to one of his employees.

No wonder Meryl's been getting her "sleeves" elsewhere.

Well, I must be in the minority.  I certainly wouldn't "do" him.  He gives a good argument for sex in total darkness.

Wow I have been sitting at home watching Miami Ink for the last 2 days. I think I am addicted to Ami. Something about the bad boys aways does it for me.

World's greatest oxymoron: "tasteful tattoo."

At first I winced but now I'm finding him kind of hot.

Me too. And I'm not a fan of tattoos, but his are really beautiful.
