Asia Argento got a tattoo of a peony on her inner thigh in May 2016. This full-color traditional tattoo is a different style than most of her ink, so she went to a different artist: Tokyo-based tattooer Akilla who specializes in traditional Japanese style tattoos. She traded tattoos with the artist, giving him a small tattoo on the back of his wrist.
The two figures on Kehlani’s inner thighs represent a scene from the movie Pulp Fiction where the characters enter a twist dance competition. On her right leg wearing a white shirt is Mia Wallace, played by Uma Thurman, and on her left leg wearing a suit is Vincent Vega, played by John Travolta. Kehlani can move her legs to make the two tattoos dance.
She got the tattoo in July 2016 and shared a picture on instagram which she captioned with a quote from the movie: “I want that trophy. so dance good.”
Kehlani has a tattoo on the front of her right thigh of a longboard. The underside of the skateboard deck featured palm trees and ocean waves.
Ruby Rose’s first and thus-far only leg tattoo is a unicorn on her right thigh with the name “Lauren,” presumably for an ex-girlfriend, which she got in March 2012. “I thought I’d never fall in love again.. I said i would never get a leg tattoo..I said I’d never get a girls name tattooed. Never say never.” she tweeted. She then posted a picture of the new ink, writing “Everyone keeps asking about the new tattoo, I get these for me, not for anyone else but here it is.. x”
In May 2015, she posted a photo on her Facebook of this tattoo with bandages over it, explaining that she she had just had her first session of laser tattoo removal. “Ouchhhhhhhh!!!!! Ok so.. I never thought I’d see the day.. But I decided to remove a couple of tattoos ( ones that were not done well ) and well.. Yes it’s actually the most painful thing in the world but thank you #laseraway @laseraway for making it bearable. 10 sessions.. 1 down 9 to go.”
However it doesn’t seem that she followed through with her tattoo removal plans — or at least she hasn’t had time to schedule the remaining sessions — as the tattoo is still clearly visible in photos from her August 2016 beach vacation.
Ash Costello has a large portrait tattoo on her right thigh inspired by the character Captain Spaulding from Rob Zombie’s horror movies House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects.
She first talked about her plans for this tattoo in an October 2013 tweet: “I decided that my next tattoo will be Captain Spaulding…. But what epic Spaulding quote should I get…” However it wasn’t until much later that she actually got it inked. Artist Joey Remmers did the tattoo in a few sessions in February and March 2015.
Justine Skye visited Dr Woo in January 2016 and got two tattoos. One is the word “fun” just above the knee on her left leg in simple polka-dot letters. (more…)
