Sky Ferreira Tattoos


Sky Ferreira has an ornate dagger tattoo on her left forearm. She wanted to get something big and something that was different than the usual girly tattoos. “It’s very masculine but the shading is very feminine, so it balances out,” she says.

This was like right when I moved to New York, a few months before my 18th birthday. I was living on my own now. So when I look back on it, that’s what I’m going to think of, is when I finally kind of became an actual adult.


Teardrop tattoos on the face have many traditional meanings, one of their symbolisms is that the wearer has been to prison. Sky Ferreira got hers on her finger in honor of rapper Lil Wayne when he was sent to jail from weapon possession in 2010. Lil Wayne himself has multiple teardrop tattoos on his face.

She told MTV: “I got a tear drop because this was right before Lil Wayne was going to jail. Even though that also means I killed somebody, but I didn’t kill anybody, sorry.” (more…)
