Lucille Ball was a well-known American actress and a true pioneer in comedy. She starred in the popular television series, I Love Lucy. As an entertainer and businesswoman, Ball continuously broke barriers for women in the entertainment industry. Today we celebrate her birthday with a few awesome tattoos and facts about her life and career.
