Minimalist Tattoos

Asia Argento


In May 2013, Asia Argento got this tattoo on her left forearm of the Patriarchal cross (☨) and “Firmeza” — a Portuguese word meaning firmness or stability.  It represents her steadfast belief in Christ. Both the cross and the writing are upside down so that they face inwards towards her when she looks at them.

She shared a photo of the tattoo along with a Portuguese hymn “Firmeza firmeza no amor / Firmeza firmeza aonde estou /Eu estou firme com meu Jesus / Eu estou firme nesta luz / Aonde estou” which translates to “Firmness firmness in love / Firmness steadfastness where I am / I am firm with my Jesus / I am firm in this light / Where I am”

Bella Hadid


Bella Hadid has a pair of tiny angel wings on the back of her right ankle which she got from artist Jon Boy in January 2017. The discreet inkings are her first known tattoos.

She has not spoken about the wings’ personal meaning, but we have a few guesses. Bella is a Victoria’s Secret Angel, so the tattoos could be in honor of her career as a model with the iconic lingerie brand.

She also calls her mom angel, too. Bella posted on twitter for her mother’s birthday “Today marks the day that our beautiful angel, my best friend and mother was brought into this world! Thank you for EVERYTHING!!!!!! Nobody loves you more than me.”

Kehlani


These four dots below Kehlani’s eyes may look like freckles, but they are actually tattoos.  The dots, which she got in May 2016, were her third face tattoo. She followed up with the paper airplane in the corner of her eye shortly afterwards.
