Minimalist Tattoos

Florence Welch

Florence Welch has an ampersand tattoo on her left ring finger knuckle.  This particular variation of the classic & symbol is a simplified version for common handwriting which is based upon the Greek letter epsilon Ɛ with a line through it.

We don’t know the personal meaning of this tattoo, which was first seen in November 2016.  It seems like a strange choice given that her band Florence + The Machine never uses an ampersand in their name and often uses a plus sign instead.



Woah Vicky has an uplifting Christian tattoo on the inside of her right elbow.  Four minimalist red ink symbols – a sun, waves, mountains, and a cross – represent the lyrics “There is hope, should oceans rise and mountains fall, He’ll never fail” from Hillsong United’s song “Take Heart.” Artist Noel Shiveley designed the symbols which are a popular tattoo.
