Finger Tattoos

Chiara Ferragni


Chiara Ferragni has a tattoo of red lips on her right ring right finger which matches the eye tattoo on her opposite hand.  She has used both eyes and lips in her designs for the Chiara Ferragni collection but the eyes seem to be more popular with customers and are much more common in her recent collections than the red lips are.

Iggy Azalea


Iggy Azalea announced that her next album would be called Surviving the Summer (the name was later changed slightly to Survive the Summer) in November 2017 and in December she revealed a new tattoo of the album’s initials “STS” on her right knuckles in the same font as the album art.

These “STS” tattoos are the third time that Iggy has put an album title on her hands.  The previous two, The New Classic and Digital Distortion, were on the sides of her fingers.  In each case she got the tattoo well before the album’s release date, and for Digital Distortion the album never ended up getting released.  In an interview with 103.5 KISS FM she joked about what she might do if Survive the Summer never saw the light of day:

I have my knuckles tattooed….and they say “STS” which stands for “Survive the Summer” which is the title of my album that I’m going to put out in summer — fingers crossed, or this tattoo is going to have to get changed. It’s just going to be super awkward. Or I may have to get my other hand tattooed.

She chose the title Survive the Summer because the songs represent all of the vibes and emotions of summertime.  She told Extra:

It’s way heavier rap, a bit grimier. Aggressive, twerkable, very sexy. It’s summer! To me, if summer was personified I think that summer is hot and sexy and aggressive. And you go out with your friends and you have a good time and you have romances and crazy adventures.

Hayley Williams


Hayley Williams announced her divorce from longtime partner Chad Gilbert in July 2017, leaving her with a regrettable tattoo of his initials “CEG” across three of her fingers. She covered them up with three black squares in February 2018. The boxes mean that she no longer has to see his initials, but going for such a dark cover-up makes it much more difficult if she ever wants to have laser removal.

This tattoo is something that Hayley doesn’t want to talk about for obvious reasons. When asked about her latest tattoo in an interview, she joked “how deep do we want to go?” and then proceeded to talk about her second most recent.

The troubles in their relationship are apparent throughout the lyrics of Paramore’s 2017 album After Laughter. Writing those songs actually made Hayley realize that their marriage was beyond saving. In an essay for Nylon, she wrote:

Writing kept me alive. Forced me to be honest….It helped me realize that I shouldn’t have ever married my ex and that love is not something we can just extract from one other.

Iggy Azalea


Iggy Azalea has gone through a lot of trouble to remove her ex A$AP Rocky’s name from her left pinkie finger. She initially tattooed an “X” through it because her hectic touring schedule didn’t give her enough time for laser removal. She finally had a lull in her career in 2015 which gave her time for frequent laser sessions. Her engagement to NBA player Nick Young also gave her a sense of urgency. “I don’t want to wear a wedding ring with tattoos about my ex under it. It’s being lasered and has been for months,” she tweeted.

Her A$AP tribute spanned three fingers, with the words “Live” “Love” and “A$AP” each on their own.  Iggy had all three lasered, but the removal was trickiest on her pinkie.  She tattooed a black box over the whole name which may have helped give an even result but it also made it more difficult.  Its location on the outside of her hand also meant that this tattoo wasn’t subject to the same amount of friction as the ones between her fingers.  She manged to get her middle and ring fingers light enough for a new “Digital Distortion” tattoo but continued with laser sessions on her pinkie.  In 2016 she told Music Choice:

I’ve actually just spent the last eight months going through a very painful laser tattoo removal process….Be very careful with what you get. And do not get your ex-boyfriend’s name or you might end up with a really long and really expensive painful trip to the dermatologist.

By 2017 she was finally able to cover the spot with a new tattoo that’s the same size as the previous one. It appears to be a number “7” for her June 7th birthday.
