Avril Lavigne Tattoos


Avril Lavigne’s days of itty-bitty tattoos are officially over. In October 2017 she tattooed a collection of astrological symbols so big that they take up her whole forearm. The symbols are:

  • ♎ – the astrological symbol of Libra
  • 🜁 – the alchemy elemental symbol for air
  • – the planetary symbol of Venus

Taken together all three symbols represent Avril’s September 27th birthday — Libra is her star sign, air is the element associated with Libra, and Venus is the ruling planet for Libra.

The Venus symbol is of course also used as a symbol for women, but that does not seem to be why Avril chose it.

The double chevrons « » are known as guillemets and are used as quotation marks in some languages. These symbols have also caught on in tattoo culture with the supposed meaning “create your own reality.” It is claimed to be a viking symbol, however there is no documentation of this usage. We believe that Avril is simply using them as quotes around the other symbols.

Avril Lavigne has “FUCK YOU” tattooed on the side of her middle finger on her right hand. “Fuck” is her favorite word and she also has a “Fuck” tattoo on her side. It’s placement on her middle finger means that it will be shown off when flipping the bird. (more…)

Avril Lavigne La Vie En Rose arm tattoo

Avril Lavigne’s biggest tattoo yet is the writing on her left forearm which says “La vie en Rose / Vivre le moment présent”, which is French for “Life in Pink / Living in the moment.” She got this tattoo with her husband Chad Kroeger, though they weren’t yet dating at the time. Avril and Chad were working together writing songs for her self-titled album when she suggested the tattoos. Avril told Chelsea Lately “When I met him I was really surprised that he didn’t have any tattoos, so the second day in the studio I’m like, ‘I’m so getting you your first tattoo.’” The tattoos weren’t intended to be matching — originally Avril had just the first line “La vie en Rose” and Chad had “Vivre le moment présent,” but she later added the second line in order to match his.

In March 2011 Avril Lavigne had a safety pin tattooed on the left side of her neck. It’s not known exactly what the significance of the safety pin is, but she tweeted: “It comes in handy all the time, it can hurt you, but at the same time keep you together, safety first!” (more…)


    Arvil Lavigne celebrated Deryck Whibley’s 30th birthday with him in March 2010, and the two got “30” tattooed on their wrists together. The couple had already filed for divorce but remained close friends. She had a lightning bolt tattooed right below it in April 2010 with Brody Jenner, her boyfriend at the time, who got a matching tattoo behind his ear. (more…)
