Black-and-Gray Tattoos

Danielle Bregoli


Danielle Bregoli got a tattoo on the back of her left forearm in August 2018 depicting the face of a cherub statue.

The cross on the forehead of the cherub is a symbol of allegiance to God, inspired by several passages of the Christian Bible. When God wants to destroy the city of Judah in Ezekiel 9:4, God says to put a cross on the forehead of people who are saddened by the abominations committed there so that they will be spared. In Revelation 7:3 the angels put a seal on the foreheads of servants of God.

Statues of Christian figures never include a cross on the forehead, however there are many historical examples of vandalism by early Christians who carved crosses into ancient Greek and Roman statues to “Christianize” them.

The word “Loyalty” was Danielle Bregoli’s very first tattoo so we know that loyalty is something that means a lot to her.  That tattoo, which she got at only 12 years old, was handwritten on her foot and looked rather sloppy and childish.  So she decided to get it covered up with a nicer looking design.

She replaced it with a new “Loyalty” tattoo on her right forearm as part of a major tattoo session in August 2018.  This time she had the word written in a clean script font with a butterfly next to it.

In addition to serving as a reminder of her own loyalties, it’s also a tribute to XXXTentacion who had the word “Loyalty” tattooed on his chin.  Danielle was devastated by his June 2018 murder and has since gotten multiple tattoos dedicated to the fellow rapper, who was a friend of hers.

Juliet Simms


Juliet Simms has a little dagger tattoo on her right middle finger.

She also updated the crescent moon on her index finger. It was initially solid black, but it had almost completely worn off, so she put an outline around it and added a little dot.

    Lili Reinhart


    Lili Reinhart got a beautiful gray rose tattoo on her forearm from artist Dr. Woo in June 2017 which is a symbol of love. She told People Style:

    I love roses, and I don’t want to stay it’s that basic, but also I got the rose to represent that I’m kind of a warrior for love. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I’ve learned a lot about myself in the past year and I’ve learned that I really just — I do wear my heart on my sleeve and that’s what it represents a little bit, that I love love.
