Upper Back Tattoos

Cindy Kimberly


Cindy Kimberly has a hand-poked astrological design on her upper back created by Neiz Vesten. The artist creates his own “Code Ink” designs for each of his clients based on their birth date. Cindy’s unique tattoo features an upside down triangle, a spiral of dots, and a cross. She had it done while in Bali in September 2016.

Her artist Neiz Vesten writes:

My last tattoo #CodeInk in Bali for @wolfiecindy. I only create artwork for each individual person who would love to embody my art for the rest of their days. All I need is your date of birth & with that I create specific codes that represent you & only you. I create MY art & MY vision. I don’t create art work upon my client’s ideas or request nor do I sell my designs.

Ruby Rose


Ruby Rose commemorated her relationship with partner Phoebe Dahl by getting this tattoo of a heart on her back with their names in it. She showed off the new tattoo in an April 1, 2014 instagram photo which she captioned “Whoops spelt romeo and juliet wrong oh well ;)” The couple announced their engagement a few weeks earlier after three months of dating.

Unfortunately they never made it down the aisle and broke up in December 2015. “[Phoebe] remains very dear to my heart. I will forever treasure our time together. I’m a better person because of the time we shared,” Ruby wrote on Twitter.

Ruby has yet to remove Phoebe’s name from the tattoo, though she has already altered it once — adding paint strokes all around the outside of the heart.

LIGHTS Poxleitner


Lights has a large tattoo on her back of Wonder Woman pushing off the hand of Giganta from the cover of Wonder Woman 2 volume 3.  At the bottom of the tattoo is a banner with the word UNSTOPPABLE written across it.  According to Lights, “it really represents being able to fight big things even though you’re small.”

Lights identifies with powerful female figures, and is particularly enamored with Wonder Woman.  She explains: “Wonder Woman is kind of my role model. She’s beautiful and she’s pure, and she fights with immense strength but integrity. She fights with justice and honor, and she’s not doing anything in a slimy or destructive way, and she’s doing it with grace and out of respect for everyone. And she’s an ambassador for Themyscira and a real symbol of a powerful woman. I think it’s fantastic. And she can kick ass and still look great doing it, so I feel like she’s a great symbol for us.”

Like many of her tattoos, this one represents strength.  “Everything I have on me makes me feel like I can do anything,” she says.
