14 Celebrities Who Have One-of-a-Kind Tattoos

year ago

Tattoos are a great form of art that allows us to express ourselves and have our ideas manifested right on our bodies for the world to see. They also stay with us forever. Many celebrities have them — some tats remind them of a particular time in their lives, a certain milestone, or an important person. Others were made just for fun. One thing is constant — they are all unique.

1. Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner

The stars of the cult Game of Thrones franchise, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, celebrated their friendship by getting matching tattoos which read “07.08.2009”. This is the date when girls landed their roles on the show and became on-screen sisters. They’ve been inseparable ever since. That’s a friendship goal we’d all love to achieve!

2. Jason Momoa

With this tattoo, the Aquaman actor recalls his Hawaiian roots as his father is Native Hawaiian. In Polynesian culture, the placement of a tattoo can have significant meaning, and a tattoo on the head can relate to one’s spirituality and knowledge of their heritage.

3. Lily Collins

On her foot, she has a rose with a string of words in the form of a stem: “The nature of this flower is to bloom.” She had it done after the shooting of the film Love, Rosie. According to her, the message it hides is as follows: “There’s a single petal falling off to symbolize that I may look delicate, but I’m as strong as a rose.”

4. Lily Allen

Lily Allen has a total of 9 tattoos of different symbols that seem to form a bracelet on her wrist. Although she has not specified the reason why she got them tattooed, she has expressed that she has scattered feelings for different beliefs in the world, which she respects. She has also tattooed other signs in this line, like a smiley face, a little dog, and even Homer Simpson’s face.

5. Demi Lovato

The singer has a giant spider on the side of their head. They explained the inspiration behind the tattoo via their Instagram story, writing, “It was Grandmother Spider who taught us many things. She taught us about pottery and weaving. She taught us about fire and light and dark. She taught us that we are all connected on the web, each one of us having our place in this world.”

6. Rihanna

Rihanna is a big fan of meaningful tattoos, and this one piece of art on her body is no exception. She got “Never a failure. Always a lesson” under her right clavicle. The text is written backward, and according to her, it’s done this way so she can read it in the mirror. “It’s basically saying that it’s OK to make a mistake. Just don’t make them twice,” she said in an interview.

7. Karrueche Tran

American model and actress Karrueche Tran has an unusual tattoo of a zipper that starts at her ankle and goes all the way up to her hip. Although there’s no meaning behind this ink, it still looks cool and creative.

8. Katy Perry

On her Instagram account, Katy Perry posted a status where she explained her tattoo of the planet Saturn located on her forearm. Her intention was to memorialize a trip taken a while ago that gave her many life lessons.

Sometime later, she would tattoo herself again but on her finger, after celebrating her show at the 49th Super Bowl. She chose to tattoo the number 49 in Roman numerals to reflect the great experience she had that night.

9. Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner has a “meow” lip tattoo. On The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jenner revealed that she got that tattoo suddenly. “I was not thinking clearly,” she said. “The word ’meow,’ she added, “was literally the first thing that came to my mind.”

10. Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson has a peculiar tattoo that wraps around her wrist like a bracelet — it is in the shape of a chain with a small medallion in the shape of a T. On it are the initials “I” and “NY” with a heart in the center, which means “I love New York.”

11. Ariana Grande

The singer decided to mark the launch of her new single “7 Rings” by getting ink on her palm. She chose to write it in Japanese but made a mistake, and her tattoo literally meant “small charcoal grill”. She later tried to correct the writing but failed again. The latest version reads, “Japanese BBQ finger” according to the Japanese reporter from Buzzfeed.

12. Emma Watson

Emma is a true activist and doesn’t hesitate to support meaningful movements that help to change the world into a better place. She even got herself a tattoo that shows her participation in the #TimesUp movement. This movement focuses on supporting women in overcoming workplace inequality.

13. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga wanted to pay tribute to the musical A Star Is Born with 2 tattoos, one of them being a pentagram. However, she made a mistake by featuring only 4 lines of the pentagram, something she managed to correct right away. The other tattoo is a rose on her back, which she posted on Instagram with the message “Happy Valentine’s Day,” explaining that it is inspired by the song “La vie en rose.”

14. David Beckham

David Beckham’s then-4-year-old daughter designed a tattoo for him. She drew a girl wearing a dress and high heels with her arms outstretched, looking like she’s about to give her dad a big hug.
