Serif Tattoos

Lauren Jauregui

Lauren Jauregui got this Roman numeral tattoo on her right elbow in August 2015. It says “XXVII” which represents the number 27.

She considers 27 to be her lucky number. It is the date of two major life events: she was born on June 27, 1996 and her musical group Fifth Harmony was formed on July 27, 2012 during the second season of The X Factor USA. Fifth Harmony named their sophomore album 7/27 after the date they were formed and released the album on May 27, 2016 to fit with the 27 theme. Lauren sees the number 27 in other places as well: “Everytime I’ve looked at the clock today it’s been __:27 weird,” she once tweeted.

Along with a photo of the tattoo, Lauren posted a link to a numerology website which explains that people born on the 27th day of the month are believed to be “compassionate, highly intelligent and kind…true humanitarians, natural teachers, healers and counselors.”

Noah Cyrus


Noah Cyrus’s first known tattoo is a roman numeral on her collarbone. It says “II – XXVIII – MMVI” which represents the numbers “2 – 28 – 2006.” The tattoo is a tribute to her paternal grandfather Ronald Ray Cyrus, who died on February 28, 2006. His death from lung cancer at the age of 70 also inspired Noah’s sister Miley Cyrus to get her first tattoo, which was of the words “Just Breathe.”

Dua Lipa


Dua Lipa got her first tattoo in January 2015. The writing on the inside of her right elbow says “Sunny Hill” as a tribute to her home in Kosovo. Sunny Hill is the English translation of the Bregu i Diellit district in Kosovo’s capital city of Pristina.

Although Dua Lipa was born in London, both of her parents are Kosovar-Albanian. She moved to Pristina, Kosovo with her family when she was 13. A few years later she returned to London to pursue her singing career.

“Now repping my real ends #Sunnyhill “BREGU I DIELLIT” thank you @seanfromtexas for my first tattoo! #LA” she wrote on instagram.

    Lynn Gunn


    Lynn Gunn has a Latin tattoo on her left elbow says “EID MAR.” It is an abbreviation for “Eidibus Martiis” a Latin phrase meaning “on the Ides of March.” The Ides is the middle of each month in the ancient Roman calendar, with the Ides of March falling on March 15th.  The Ides of March was a religious holiday, but is most famous as the date that Roman dictator Julius Caesar was assassinated on in 44 BC. The phrase “EID MAR” began appearing on Roman coins following Ceaser’s assassination.

    For Lynn, the Ides of March has personal meaning because her birthday is on March 15th.

    Lynn Gunn

    “When i wake up in the morning I decide. I decide how i want to act, I decide who i want to be, I decide who i surround myself with, I decide how i choose to look at things, I decide what to put my energy into… I decide my happiness and I decide my life. I’ve been writing this on my arm for as long as I can remember. May sound cheesy but it’s something i’m glad i can always look down on and remember 🙂 Thank you @jonboytattoo for bringing this to life! ❤️”
