Wrist Tattoos

China Anne McClain


China McClain and all of the pirate squad actors and dancers from ‘Descendants 2’ got different-sized anchor tattoos together once filming wrapped, so she has a piece of her time as Uma (her character on the movie) with her forever, something that will last a lifetime, like her bonds with Thomas and Dylan, her right-hand men in the movie.

“We all got very close during the film. Like this little tattoo I have here, they have them too. When you get a cast that you really connect to, it’s a special thing because to be honest, not all casts are like that, and sometimes we don’t get so lucky. So being able to work with them and then hang out with them after set every day was so, so great.”, China said in an interview for J-14.
“Thomas is awesome, he’s like crazy. He runs around the set with so much energy. So that always boosted my energy. And Dylan is just the sweetest person you’ll ever meet in your entire life.”

The event was also captured on social media: “Got matching tatts with my pirates⚓️ photos of all of them are coming soon!” – China caption her Instagram photo featuring a close up of her ink.

Debby Ryan


Debby Ryan got a hand-poked tattoo of a dagger on her left wrist during a late night tattoo session in January 2017. This designs sits on top of the old alien on her wrist, which was already very faded since stick-and-pokes don’t usually last as long as machine tattoos. Her tattooer Julia Laufer aka know_dice describes it as a “semi-cover up.”

    Debby Ryan had this little stick-and-poke alien tattoo for about two years. She first showed off the alien on the inside of her left wrist in January 2015 and then in January 2017 she covered it up with a new design. In response to a question about her tattoo on tumblr, she quoted “If I find in myself a desire which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only explanation must be that I was made for another world.” by author CS Lewis.

    She was very much into “out of this world” extraterrestrial vibes at the time that she got the tattoo — but so was her ex-boyfriend. She has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with Twenty One Pilots drummer Josh Dun, who sometimes wears an alien mask on stage. The tattoo is not specifically about him and it seems like they were actually broken up when she got it. But the connection to Josh might explain why she wanted to get rid of the faded inking rather than redo it.
