Handwriting Tattoos

Danielle Bregoli


Danielle Bregoli tattooed a cursive letter “F” on the inside of her right pointer finger in February 2018.  It matches the style of the letter “B” tattoo on her ring finger which she already had.

We’re not certain who or what the “F” represents, but we have a few ideas.

Our best guess is that it’s for her maternal grandfather Frank Bregoli.  We had previously thought the letter “B” was her mom Barbara Ann, but if the “F” is for grandpa Frank then then “B” would be for her grandma whose name is also Barbara.  Danielle is estranged from her dad but she is close with the relatives on her mom’s side of the family.

The letter “F” could also represent Danielle’s bodyguard Frank Dellatto who is constantly by her side.

Bea Miller


Bea Miller and fellow pop singer Kennedi got matching tattoos  in March 2018 that say “it only couldve been what it was” with the text wrapping around their elbows.  The two girls seem to have come up with this phrase on their own — perhaps it’s a lyric to a future song?  It speaks to fate and destiny as well as the pointlessness of dwelling on things in the past that we can’t change.

Tattoo parlor Generation 8 Tattoo shared of a photo of Bea’s completed tattoo next to the paper that used as their template, where we can see that it printed out using a computer handwriting font similar to Daddy’s Hand with no apostrophe and no capital letters for a uniform look.

Bea Miller


Bea Miller added this handwritten tattoo between her ghost and maple leaf in December 2017. It says “we are all going” which is a line from the John Green novel Looking for Alaska. She shared a picture of the tattoo on her instagram along with a photo of her copy of the book, showing the context for the quote. The paragraph in the book says:

We are all going, I thought, and it applies to turtles and turtlenecks, Alaska the girl and Alaska the place, because nothing can last, not even the earth itself. The Buddha said that suffering was caused by desire, we’d learned, and that the cessation of desire meant the cessation of suffering. When you stopped wishing things wouldn’t fall apart, you’d stop suffering when they did.

It is about accepting that we cannot change our own mortality and the impermanence of everything and everyone around us.

Halsey


Halsey has a tattoo on her right forearm which says “BRAT” in graffiti-style capital letters. She showed off the brand-new tattoo in a May 2017 instagram photo. In a message with a fan, she explained that she got the tattoo because her mom and dad call her a brat. A brat is a spoiled child and it’s usually an insult, but Halsey sees it as a term of endearment instead.

Fans have pointed out that the word “brat” means brother/sibling in many languages including Russian, Polish and Serbian but this doesn’t seem to be what Halsey intended.
