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.
