Bicep Tattoos

Dua Lipa


Dua Lipa got this rose tattoo on her right bicep in the wee hours of the morning following her concert in Paris on April 3, 2018.  Tattoo artist Madame Buraka has a very distinctive style that combines 90s tribal designs, graffiti, and minimalist line drawings.  While the lines on Dua’s tattoo may look abstract at first glance, there’s actually an number “95” hidden in the leaves to represent her birth year.

Chiara Ferragni


Chiara Ferragni has a very faint tattoo of the children’s book character The Little Prince (Il Piccolo Principe) on her left bicep.  Her favorite Los Angeles artist Dr Woo was in Paris at the time and met up with Chiara in her hotel room to do the tattoo in March 2018.

The placement of her tattoo seems somewhat sideways, but it is oriented properly when she holds her arm outwards.  The particular illustration that she chose features The Little Prince sitting in the grass with his star beaming down on him.  It appears on the page where the prince tells the narrator “In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars will be laughing when you look at the sky at night..You, only you, will have stars that can laugh!”

    Noah Cyrus


    Noah Cyrus has some of her own lyrics tattooed on her bicep.  The cursive ink on her inner right arm says “I’ve been on fire lately” which comes from the chorus of her song “Lately” featuring her boyfriend Tanner Alexander.

    When it comes to fans getting their own tattoos inspired by her music, she told NME:

    You know what, I’m not, it’s your body, whatever you wanna get tattooed on your body, I’m getting song lyric tattoos, so I can’t say not to do that. But my reaction was like ‘oh my god! You may not love me forever. Are you sure you want that on your body?’

    Lynn Gunn

    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.

    Bea Miller


    Bea Miller got this minimalist drawing tattooed on her right bicep in December 2017.  With only a few lines, the design gives the impression of a couple hugging. The lover on the left has their arms around the other’s neck while the figure on the right has their arms around the waist.

    Taraji P. Henson


    Actress Taraji P. Henson has a tattoo on her left bicep which reads “The Truth”.
    On an interview at the Good Day New York she said, pointing to her tattoo that “You can’t be afraid of your past, or ashamed about it, because that’s what makes you who you are today. Life isn’t easy. As humans we’re all beautifully flawed. No human is perfect”.
