Lynn Gunn Tattoos
Lynn Gvnn celebrated her 24th birthday on March 15, 2018 by getting a tattoo. Her band PVRIS was on tour in San Antonio, TX so they met up with local artist Mason Chimato, who also gave drummer Justin Nace a tattoo of Roman numerals on his wrist.
Lynn opted for an intricate Eye of Providence design on her upper back. The all-seeing eye of God has a halo of emanating lines which represent rays of light. This particular drawing of the symbol, with four shooting arrows and a leafed branch below the eye, is a replica of a woodcut print created by American engraver Alexander Anderson in the early 1800s.

Lynn Gunn got this tattoo on the inside of her right arm following PVRIS’ concert in Houston, TX on October 1, 2017.
The design that she had inked is one of over 200 chapter headings that illustrator Aubrey Beardsley created for the 1893 book Le Morte d’Arthur which tells the tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. This book was the first commissioned work in Beardsley’s short career. Although he died at only 25 years old, Beardsley’s art lives on an iconic example of the Art Nouveau style.
Lynn’s tattoo is true to Beardsley’s style of using only black and white without any gray for a very graphic look.
The lines on the left side of Lynn Gunn’s ribcage are a matching tattoo with photographer Lindsey Byrnes. The “||||=|” design is a symbol of equality, showing that many people are all one.
Lynn Gunn got the conifer tree on the back of her ankle as a matching tattoo with a group of people.
Lynn Gunn got a new tattoo on her right forearm of a snake wrapped around a female torso. The headless, limbless figure looks like an ancient damaged statue.
Lynn Gunn showed off this new tattoo on her left hand in December 2016. It appears to be a tooth or possibly a lightning bolt.
Lynn Gunn got a huge tattoo on her left side from artist Baud Nach in December 2016. The drawing depicts two nude women draped in a sheet. The subjects appear to be lovers, as one women has her hand on the other’s breast.
The artist wrote on instagram “It’s always such a pleasure to hang out with you @lynngvnn ! You’re a real badass!!!!” Lynn responded “Thanks for letting me be your guinea pig. Absolutely killed it again 🙌 if you’re in the NYC area and want an awesome experience with incredible work to match, hit up my dude @baudnach“
Lynn Gunn and Sierra Kusterbeck got matching snake tattoos in November 2016. The snake in a circle eating its own tail is an ancient symbol known as the “ouroboros” and it represents the infinite cycles of nature. Artist Baud Nach added leaves and flowers around the sides of the snake to make it look like a laurel wreath. Lynn got the design tattooed on the front of her left upper arm, while Sierra’s is on the back of her right upper arm.
Lynn Gunn has a Latin tattoo on her left elbow says “EID MAR.” It is an abbreviation for “Eidibus Martiis” a Latin phrase meaning “on the Ides of March.” The Ides is the middle of each month in the ancient Roman calendar, with the Ides of March falling on March 15th. The Ides of March was a religious holiday, but is most famous as the date that Roman dictator Julius Caesar was assassinated on in 44 BC. The phrase “EID MAR” began appearing on Roman coins following Ceaser’s assassination.
For Lynn, the Ides of March has personal meaning because her birthday is on March 15th.
Lynn Gunn has a tattoo on the back of her left wrist which says “npnr” — an acronym for “no parents no rules”
