Chest Tattoos

Malu Trevejo


Malu Trevejo got a surrealist design tattooed on the center of her chest in June 2018.  Her tattoo artist Alex Chiong created the unique ocean-inspired design by superimposing multiple images on top of each other.  There are a pair of eyes inked below Malu’s breasts and a conch shell where the woman’s nose would be.  A school of fish fills in the space on the bottom while the top of the design features curved lines that represent waves and sea birds.  On top of the tattoo is a little black crescent moon, which is often a symbol for women since the menstrual cycle lines up with the lunar cycle.  The moon also controls the tides of the ocean.

Malu’s young age is always a source of controversy every time she gets a new tattoo, but this time things don’t add up.  The tattoo was done by a licensed artist at a reputable parlor in Florida, where it is only legal to tattoo a minor with parental consent if they are 16 or older — and Malu was 15.  The artist actually defended himself by posting a picture on instagram of Malu posing with police officers and wrote “Try again guys Malú is not 13 you guys are haters and her mom is here everyone and everything is fine.”  Someone watching her livestream had called the cops who showed up at the parlor but did nothing.  So either Malu has been lying about her age and she’s older than she says, or, more likely, she and her mom lied to the tattoo artist and the police and said that she was 16.

Jesy Nelson


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.

Jasmine Villegas


Jasmine Villegas and her former fiancé Ronnie Banks celebrated Valentine’s Day on February 14, 2018 by getting matching tattoos of their daughter’s name “Ameera Reign.” The date is also significant because Ameera’s first birthday was only a few days later on February 19th.

Ronnie and Jasmine have a YouTube channel called BANKS Family where they have shared the ups and downs of their relationship as well as posting funny pranks and reaction videos. Naturally they filmed their whole tattoo experience.

Jasmine has much bigger tattoos than this, so we’re surprised that she seemed so scared!  “It’s such a small thing but I’m terrified,” she revealed.  Despite her fears, she was also excited. “This tattoo is probably the only tattoo that’s ever going to mean anything to me because it’s my daughter’s name. So I can’t wait.”  She used numbing cream to dull the pain and persevered.

She got the collarbone inking from artist Kim at Inkies Tattoo Studio in Fremont, CA. Ronnie wished he could put his tattoo on the left side of his chest like Jasmine’s, be he opted to place it on the opposite side instead because he had more open space between his many other inkings.

A few months after getting the tattoos Jasmine and Ronnie announced that they are taking a break after four years together.  But of course they are still dedicated to co-parenting Ameera.

Cheryl Cole


Cheryl Cole got this little swirl tattoo on the center of her chest from artist Nikko Hurtado in April 2016. The design is a Buddhist unalome which represents enlightenment. If the top of the tattoo symbolizes the destination, the swirls symbolize the journey — which is often indirect but gets more refined as you get closer to the goal. It shows that you are making progress even when it feels like you’re treading backwards.

The artist wrote on instagram: “Always honored to tattoo my friend @cherylofficial did this little Buddhist symbol on her chest about a month ago. @cherylofficial & @fakeliampayne are class acts and always treat me very well. Thank you guys for trusting me tattooing you. 🙏🏻 honored.”
