Serif Tattoos


SZA celebrated her debut studio album “Ctrl” by getting the title tattooed on her left forearm. The album was officially released on June 9, 2017 but SZA got the tattoo a few month prior.

Some of SZA’s die-hard fans have showed their devotion by getting their own “Ctrl” tattoos. One fan posted a picture of the tattoo that he got before the album was released and captioned it “I don’t listen yet but it already changed my life.”  SZA was so flattered that she reposted the picture and wrote “You’ve already changed mine. (got mines in the same spot too)”.

The album title “Ctrl” represents living in the present moment and just letting life happen without trying to control every little thing.

“It’s about analog and being at a time where we were brought information more slowly,” she told Complex. “Control is a concept, you think about getting away from analog, control is an illusion, you try and force it.”


    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.”
