Handwriting Tattoos

Asia Argento


Asia Argento got the word “HOPE” tattooed on her right hand knuckles in December 2014.  It has a religious meaning to her and goes with the staurogram cross on her index finger.  She shared a picture of the tattoo along with the bible verse 1 Corinthians 13:11:

When I was a child I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I am also known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Asia Argento


Asia Argento tattooed her right hand knuckles with the names of four of her artistic idols:

  • “Joe” is for painter Joe Coleman, who is a friend and collaborator of hers. He has painted portraits of Asia and also acted in her 2000 directorial debut Scarlet Diva.
  • “Syd” is for Syd Barrett, a musician and painter who was one of the founding members of Pink Floyd.
  • “Moz” is for singer/songwriter Morrissey
  • “Bob” is for singer/songwriter Bob Dylan

She got the “Bob” tattoo first in February 2014 and then added the remaining three in April 2014.  All of the names were tattooed by artist Michele Agostini.

The “Syd” tattoo serves double duty as it also represents her friend Sydney Zekley. Syd has a tattoo of Asia’s name along the side of her finger.
