Ryan Cabrera's Ryan Gosling Tattoo Is Not A Joke (PHOTO)

Ryan Cabrera's Ryan Gosling tattoo is not a joke. The singer most known for dating Ashlee Simpson and Audrina Patridge showed off his sizable black-and-white ink of the "The Place Beyond the Pines" star's visage on his right calf last week, which was the result -- to the dismay or delight of "Hey Girl" fans everywhere -- of a game he had played with his friends, called tattoo roulette.

"Me and my buddy, we go in [the tattoo parlor] and he chooses one thing off the wall for me, then I choose one thing for him," Cabrera told fellow musician Lance Bass on SiriusXM Radio show "Dirty Pop" last month. "You can't see it until after it's done and then we unveil them at the same time."

He added: "The only rules are that it can't be religious and it can't offend anybody," noting that his pal had walked out emblazoned with a tattoo of a Hershey's Kiss.
