Jesy Nelson Tattoos
Jesy Nelson revealed a new tattoo on the left side of her ribs at the Global Awards on March 1, 2018. It says “Keepers” and it might be part of a matching “Finders Keepers” tattoo with someone else, possibly her boyfriend Harry James?
Even though the tattoo can be seen clearly, the uneven handwriting makes it hard to tell what it says. The loop on the to of the “r” is too high while the loop on the “s” is too low. We have to agree with one instagram user who commented “It does say Keepely tho doesn’t it? That’s what it looks like… what’s it meant to say? Cause whatever it’s meant to read it doesn’t I’d want my money back from the tattooist.”
Tattoo artist Gabby Colledge does these cursive tattoos in her own handwriting for an organic but imperfect look. Looking through her portfolio, her letter “r” has a tall loop in many of her designs, including Jesy’s own “girl power” tattoo.
Jesy Nelson got three tattoos on her right hand all at once in January 2018. Her middle finger knuckle says “amor” which means “love” in Latin, Spanish, and Portuguese.
On her index finger and ring finger are the letters “E” and “J.” These initials are a bit of a mystery since her boyfriend’s name is Harry James. It doesn’t match any of her family members either — her parents and siblings all have names that start with a letter “J.” The “J” might stand for Jesy, but we don’t know who or what the “E” represents.
Jesy Nelson got this “girl power” tattoo on her collarbone from artist Gabby Colledge in January 2018. As a girl group, Little Mix’s music is all about women taking charge and standing up for themselves. They want female listeners young and old to feel empowered and confident. “If a girl is being bullied, or heartbroken, or just feeling like utter shite, if our music can make them feel better… then we’re doing our jobs right,” Jesy says.
The term “girl power” has been deeply entwined with female pop groups ever since the Spice Girls made it their slogan in the 1990s. Girl power is all about women supporting each other and building each other up rather than competing and tearing each other down.
Jesy Nelson got a rose tattoo on her right arm in September 2017. It is placed so that the flower is on the back of her hand and the stem is on her forearm.
Jesy Nelson got six symbols tattooed on her left hand knuckles all at once in February 2017. She has the four suits from a deck of playing cards — ♤ spades on her index finger, ♢ diamonds on her middle finger, ♧ clubs on her ring finger, and ♡ hearts on her pinkie — as well as a ✝ Christian cross on her thumb and a 🗲 lightning bolt on her middle finger.
Jesy Nelson got this tattoo of a feather and eye on her left forearm in August 2015. She visited the studio of famed tattoo artist Bang Bang in New York City. “Always wanted to be tattooed by the amazing @bangbangnyc and I finally did yesterday,” she wrote on instagram.
Jesy Nelson got this fairy tale inspired tattoo on the inside of her left arm for her boyfriend Jake Roche from the band Rixton. It says “Once upon a time” in a storybook-style gothic font. “It’s really cringe, but I recently had this done,” she told Fabulous magazine. “When me and Jake first got together… before I’d fall asleep he’d tell me a little fairytale story about how we got together. So it’s really cringe, but it’s cute.”
Jesy Nelson got a tattoo of a skull and rose from artist Oliver Macintosh at Frith Street Tattoo in January 2014. The tattoo is on the outside of her left forearm, next to her previous rose tattoo which she got from the same artist only a month earlier. A rose stem goes through the skull’s eye socket and out the mouth. (more…)
