Asia Argento Tattoos


Asia Argento got a tattoo of a peony on her inner thigh in May 2016. This full-color traditional tattoo is a different style than most of her ink, so she went to a different artist: Tokyo-based tattooer Akilla who specializes in traditional Japanese style tattoos. She traded tattoos with the artist, giving him a small tattoo on the back of his wrist.

Asia Argento got her left upper arm tattooed shortly after the right in May 2015.  The ornamental designs on her chest and both arms are all the creations off Marco Manzo and Francesca Boni. “Thank you for making me one of your living canvases #Respect #admiration,” she writes.

The beads and shield on the top of both shoulders are the same, but the left arm has a spiral mandala design.

Asia Argento got the word “HOPE” tattooed on her right hand knuckles in December 2014.  It has a religious meaning to her and goes with the staurogram cross on her index finger.  She shared a picture of the tattoo along with the bible verse 1 Corinthians 13:11:

When I was a child I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I am also known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Asia Argento tattooed her right hand knuckles with the names of four of her artistic idols:

  • “Joe” is for painter Joe Coleman, who is a friend and collaborator of hers. He has painted portraits of Asia and also acted in her 2000 directorial debut Scarlet Diva.
  • “Syd” is for Syd Barrett, a musician and painter who was one of the founding members of Pink Floyd.
  • “Moz” is for singer/songwriter Morrissey
  • “Bob” is for singer/songwriter Bob Dylan

She got the “Bob” tattoo first in February 2014 and then added the remaining three in April 2014.  All of the names were tattooed by artist Michele Agostini.

The “Syd” tattoo serves double duty as it also represents her friend Sydney Zekley. Syd has a tattoo of Asia’s name along the side of her finger.
