Meaning of her tattoo of the Egyptian goddess Isis:

This tattoo on the Rihanna’s chest, undoubtedly one of our favorites, is a tribute to his grandmother.

Justin Bieber

star tattoo 344

Meaning of his small cross tattoo:

Although Bieber is not (by far) the first celebrity to have a religious symbol tattooed, we cannot imagine anything that sticks as much to this spiritual personality. Fact, the tattoo artist who made this drawing told Refinery29 that he and Bieber had prayed before starting the tattoo session because the singer was facing “such heaviness”.

Miley Cyrus

Meaning of his “Breathe” tattoo:

This is Cyrus’ very first tattoo. Fans wonder if this is not a tribute to certain loved ones who died, such as his grandfather, who died of a lung problem, and his friend, who suffered from cystic fibrosis and died in 2007.

Lily Collins

Meaning of his woman tattoo on a lily pad:

Although Collins’ explanation remains vague on this point, we know from a Instagram post that this particular addition was a tribute to Collins’ trip to Korea in 2016.

Harry Styles

Meaning of her half-naked mermaid tattoo:

With about 60 tattoos (and we continue to count), it is almost impossible to follow the evolution of the tattoos printed on the singer’s body. But one of them has a particularly adorable meaning: his siren. Once, a fan asked Styles what the mermaid meant and why she had this particular type of body (with reference to: “perfect breasts”). Styles would have said insolently that no one should seek perfection and that you have to love people exactly as they are.

Hilary Duff

Meaning of his Take Fountain tattoo:

Maybe you ignore it, but it’s a famous sarcasm of Bette Davis. When she attended the show The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, the program leader at the time asked her if she had any advice for the young actresses: How could they get into the profession? Davis’ quick response was, “Take Fountain,” referring to Foutain Avenue, a shortcut that led to the vicinity of Los Angeles.

Sam Smith

Meaning of his tattoo of two parallel lines:

According to one Instagram post already deleted published two years ago, the scoop of this tattoo is that it is “inspired by one of the oldest tattoos ever found on a mummified body having been found in a block of ice”. The more we know…

Lady Gaga

Meaning of his David Bowie tattoo:

For if it were not obvious, it is a tribute to David Bowie. On many occasions, Gaga mentioned that the recently deceased singer was one of his biggest influences. Just look at the “Just Dance” music video or his performance in tribute to Bowie during Grammy Awards 2016 to realize it.

Lady Gaga has an epic number of tattoos on the skin but her new acquisition has a very special meaning. When showing her new tattoo of Ziggy Stardust on Snapchat, Lady Gaga said to her fans: “It’s the image that changed my life”.

Kesha

Meaning of his “Live Free” tattoo:

After an emotionally tumultuous year, full of legal battles and a best practice of self-esteem, Kesha celebrates her freedom with this thunder tattoo on the knuckles of the hands.

Dakota Johnson

Meaning of his faded flower tattoo

Nobody has ever made a flower tattoo “fucked up” on the body – except Johnson. She published the photo with an explanation suggesting that the imperfections do not diminish personal worth in any way.

Billie Heavy

Meaning of his tattoo representing a set of celestial bodies

To give back tribute to his mother who died recently, Carrie Fisher, Lourd printed this image of space on his ankle, in reference to the similar tattoo that Fisher wore.

Brooklyn Beckham

Meaning of his tattoo “020511”

Each number represents the year of birth of one of his brothers. Romeo James was born in 2002, Cruz in 2005 and Harper Seven in 2011. Fortunately, a clever Instagram fan reported a other potential meaning for this tattoo: David Beckham’s birthday is May 2 – the day and the month would be written in European and not North American style (where the month is indicated first, then the day) on the arm from Brooklyn.

Sophia Bush

Meaning of his tattoo of a piece of the Golden Record:

In honor of the new year, Bush was made a matching tattoo with her best friend, in reference to the work of Carl Sagan: A Pale Blue Dot. Bush has fundamentally found the perfect time to permanently imprint a philosophy of life that talks about finding your home – in relation to the world and to yourself. Deep, isn’t it?

SZA

Meaning of his log tattoo with a leaf

Fans speculate as to whether it is a tribute to his hometown, Maplewood (Maple Wood) in New Jersey. The Grammy-nominated singer told Complex that growing up in such a small, “quietly affluent” town – which was also mostly populated by whites – made him feel the only “black girl symbol” every day of his life.

Beyonce

Meaning of his three-point tattoo:

Fans believe that three points represent her three children: Blue Ivy, Rumi and Sir.

Emma Stone

Meaning of his bird foot tattoo

In 2010 Stone and his family learned that his mom no longer had cancer. The mother and daughter were therefore getting matching tattoos. The meaning is even deeper, because of Emma’s love for her. Beattles song “Blackbird” and because there is a drawing by Paul McCartney representing two robin feet.
