Lady Gaga inked inside giant bottle at lavish perfume launch
Lady Gaga spent 1 million pounds to mark the launch of her "blood and semen" perfume, where she got herself a tattoo of a flying cherub inside a giant bottle in front of onlookers.
The 26-year-old singer appeared in a giant scent bottle - a replica of her Fame fragrance bottle - for the launch at the Guggenheim Museum in Manhattan, Sky News reported.
For the occasion she was dressed in a sparkly top, skirt and red wig.
The pop star, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, then stripped down to her lingerie and posed while having the tattoo of a winged cherub done at the back of her shaved head.
The eccentric singer then applied makeup and played on an iPad inside the bottle, where she was joined by four others.
While she was being tattooed, Edith Piaf was played in the background, as did David Bowie's 'Fame' and various others songs that featured Kanye West.
After getting her tattoo done - she danced in her seat - as West's latest hit 'Mercy' was blasted in the background.
"Fame is the first ever black eau de parfum," Lady Gaga said, while talking about the scent.
"So it's black inside the bottle and then, once you spray it, it's clear and it's beautiful and it's exciting to be a part of innovative project with some great people."
"It's a quite delicious, succulent, slutty, seductive fragrance," she added.
The 'Judas' singer took time out between the Manchester and Dublin legs of her 'Born This Way Ball' tour to fly by private jet back to her hometown of New York to launch the scent.
According to the Sun, she later made an appearance at Macy's department store in a horse-drawn carriage that was in the shape of a bottle of Fame.
Her sculpted black "dress" also looked like her perfume bottle.
And her shoes looked straight out of Gary Glitter's wardrobe.
A few hundred people mostly dressed with eye masks and headgear attended the masquerade black tie museum event.
Yoko Ono, Marc Jacobs, Paris Hilton, Jason Wu and Lindsay Lohan were the celebrities that attended the event.
