Grimes Tattoos

Grimes got this huge brushstroke tattoo on her right forearm in December 2015. Although most of her other tattoos have been done by herself or friends, this one one created by Delphine Noiztoy, an artist who specializes in realism blackwork.

In an instagram post, she explained “Big streaks of paint so I always remember that I’m an artist, Delphine is a master of this style. I hope to add more specks of paint with her later, so that my hands always look as if I’ve just been painting and making a mess.”

The tattoo is a redesign of her existing cross tattoo, which was smaller and more ornate.


    Grimes has the word “Beautiful” tattooed on the back of her left hand along with many other tattoos including lines on her pinkie, a Greek meander on her index finger, her lucky number 8, an alien head, a chevron line on her wrist, and chains on her wrist. All of her tattoos are homemade and were done by herself or her friends. In an instagram post, she wrote “feeling beautiful despite many imperfections haha, terrible and wonderful memories etched into my skin. Even the most screwed up ones were all done w or by my best friends and they all feel like home.”
