Kesha has at least 32 known tattoos:
Kesha got this colorful tiger’s head tattooed on the back of her left hand from artist Derrick Snodgrass at Saved Tattoo in Los Angeles. She showed off the new tattoo in an instagram photo on February 1, 2017 and captioned it “fukin meow.”
Kesha showed off this new whale tattoo on her instagram in January 2017. “Psychedelic whales are slowly covering my entire body…” she wrote. The tattoo depicts an orca whale colored in neon pink and chartreuse rather than its natural black and white. This is Kesha’s fourth sea creature tattoo, following the humpback whale on her forearm, whale shark on her wrist, and narwhal on her elbow.
Kesha commemorated her Halloween celebration with this narwhal tattoo on the outside of her right forearm. She had dressed up in a narwhal onesie which was a gift from a fan and partied with a few close friends. The next day, November 1, 2016, she got this cutesy narwhal tattoo to remind her of the fun night spent with true friends.
“haaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. had to immortalize last night,” she writes. “night night. so grateful for my beautiful magical friends. when u find the real ones hold on tight for dear life y’all. they’re what’ll keep u laughing when life throws you shitheads and douchebags.” “btw I was a NARWHAL tonight which was a present given to me by one of my darling animals on this past tour *FUN FACT*”
Kesha got this tattoo of a smiley face on her right middle finger from artist Derrick Snodgrass on November 1, 2016 during the same session as her narwhal tattoo. She explained on her instagram that the tattoo represents her personal happiness:
MOTHERFUCKERS CANT TOUCH MY HAPPINESSSSSS. BOOM. @oblivioussurroundings thanks buddy for the happy little finger tattoo! and the happy day! ur the best.
Kesha gave herself this stick-and-poke whale tattoo while on vacation in Mexico in May 2016. “New tattoo? … whale shark blob whatever. I hope my hand doesn’t fall off,” she wrote in an instagram photo. Kesha went swimming with whale sharks on the trip and it was a spiritual experience for her. “When a whale shark decides to be ur best friend and reconnect you to your true self and nature and spirituality and magic and beauty and love and gratitude…..I LOVE THIS WHALE SHARK. I CANT EVEN. #whalesharklife,” she wrote. Now that feeling is commemorated permanently with this tattoo.
In February 2016, Kesha got this tattoo on her upper right arm of a palm tree with the word “chill” written below it.
Kesha got this tattoo of an alien spaceship on her left forearm in February 2016. The simple drawing includes dotted lines to indicate that it is about to abduct someone. “Meet me in space,” she wrote on instagram. Her artist Sean From Texas frequently features aliens and spaceships in his tattoos.
Kesha got a tattoo of a humpback whale on her left forearm from artist Matt Ahn at Invisible NYC in January 2016. “Save the whales save the whales save the whales – gorgeous ink from @[email protected] thank u! I love my whale! it reminds me of when I deep dive with them in the oceannnnnn,” she wrote. She has nicknamed her tattoo “Stuart.” Kesha loves sea creature so much that she gave herself a second whale tattoo a few months later.
