Blue Ink Tattoos


Beyoncé has a tattoo of three little dots on her left ring finger which represent her three children. The color difference is subtle, but the middle dot is in blue ink because it symbolizes she and Jay-Z’s first child Blue Ivy Carter who was born on January 7, 2012. The top and bottom black dots represent their twins Sir and Rumi Carter, who were born on June 13, 2017.

She actually got the tattoo before giving birth, which was a risky move. She and husband Jay-Z were thrilled to have the pregnancy so far along especially since she has miscarried in the past, an experience that she describes as “the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.” But on the positive side, she says that “The pain and trauma from that just makes it mean so much more to get an opportunity to bring life into the world.” And fortunately this time they got not one but two beautiful babies!

After removing the tattoo on her hip, she told People magazine that she wouldn’t get another tattoo unless it was for something permanent like children. This tattoo doesn’t seem like something that she has to worry about regretting — but she might need to add to it if she ever grows her family.

Ruby Rose

Ruby Rose got this “MTV” knuckle tattoo to commemorate the time that she spent as an MTV VJ in her native Australia. She began working for the network after winning a nationwide search for a new host in 2007. The blue ink letters are placed on her middle knuckles, below the larger “Just Love” knuckle tattoo.

She has expressed her gratitude towards MTV in a few tweets. “Forever indebted to those who believe in me and I will never take that for granted. From my family to MTV to everyone I’ve met till now,” she wrote. “Feeling blessed, never thought I would see the day I’d be working for MTV, In NY for FW AND an agency like NEXT believes so much in me.”
