PARIS - Comedian Russell Brand and his girlfriend pop singer Katy Perry were in town for the prestigious Madam Jean-Jean Underwear Fashion Show.
While shopping for souvenirs on the Rive Gauche (The Left Bank), the giggly pair stopped off at the famous La Grande Boutique de Tatouage de Fifi and got matching tattoos.
Russell wanted to get tattoos of matching luggage, but Katy insisted on getting tattoos of matching microphones.
The 34-year-old Brand has just completed filming on his latest movie The Misadventures of Agent 007's Illegitimate Son Stanley Fiskenhipper Bond.
The motion picture was filmed on location in Chile, Ethiopia, Denmark, Liverpool, and two scenes in Brand's kitchen.
Katy, 25, meanwhile has just finished the last lap of her whirlwind, Katy's World Whirlwind Tour in which she performed in 142 countries in 143 days.
The concert tour included a record-breaking performance in Shanghai, China where over 700,000 screaming fans managed to somehow crowd into the 85,000 seat Chinese Fire Drill Stadium.
Perry's opening act was the winner of this year's American Idol Kris Allen. Kris who hails from Arkansas said that he had never ever seen so many fans with so many piercings, chopsticks, and tattoos of everything from ancient Chinese symbols to modern day Chinese checkers.
Krissy, as his mom and bodyguard call him, said that during the various world-wide performances he would usually end up with six or seven bras that fans would toss up on stage.
After the 17th concert performance, Kris noticed that the bras had hotel room numbers and cell phone numbers written on the bra labels.
Russell was asked if his relationship with Miss Perry is getting serious. he grinned, took two sips from his Tequila Slammer, and proudly answered that he had already hit 27 'home runs.'
When Katy was asked the same question she responded by saying that although she enjoys the 'home runs' the nine year age difference will probably prevent her from getting too, too serious with Brand X, as she calls Russell.
One British tabloid wrote that the pair make a lovely couple, much in the same way that a kangaroo and a chicken make great swimming partners.
Brand is scheduled to enter rehab for a hardcore cussing addiction in early December and Katy is currently working on her next single entitled, "I Kissed A Woman."
