Elbow Tattoos

Nia Lovelis


Nia Lovelis has a traditionally-shaded teapot tattoo on her right arm. She has tweeted about how this area on the inside of the elbow, referred to as the ditch, is her favorite tattoo location.

    Woah Vicky has an uplifting Christian tattoo on the inside of her right elbow.  Four minimalist red ink symbols – a sun, waves, mountains, and a cross – represent the lyrics “There is hope, should oceans rise and mountains fall, He’ll never fail” from Hillsong United’s song “Take Heart.” Artist Noel Shiveley designed the symbols which are a popular tattoo.

    Erika Costell has a red “X” tattoo on her right elbow for Team 10, the YouTube house which she is a part of. X is the roman numeral for 10.

    She hates how this tattoo looks and actually wanted to get it removed. In a vlog she explained why she was planning to get rid of it:

    “Right now it’s a bittersweet moment. I love Team 10, but it’s time to get my Team 10 tattoo removed…because the guy who did my tattoo completely screwed it up. It’s uneven. The color is ugly. It was just a total fail…That’s my seventh tattoo and I’ve had no problems with any other tattoos and I just can’t get used to this one. I hate it; it’s poorly done.”

    However when she arrived for her appointment at LaserAway they told her that their machines were designed for black ink and they couldn’t remove her tattoo because of the color. She was warned that the lasers could actually make the tattoo worse or cause scarring, so she left with the tattoo still on her arm.
