Serif Tattoos

Halsey


Halsey got a tattoo which says “NIGHTMARE” on her upper back in January 2018. She visited artist Emily Effler at the Honorable Society who inked the word in a crisp serif font.

“Not sure how I ended up getting my neck AND spine tattooed this month but I guess life comes at u fast,” she tweeted. She had actually talked a while ago about getting a pair of nightmare and daydream tattoos.

    Faith Evans


    Faith Evans got a new tattoo in July 2018 following her wedding to fellow R&B singer and producer Steven Aaron Jordan aka Stevie J. The couple were wed in their Las Vegas hotel room on July 17, 2018 and they wasted no time getting the relationship sealed on their skin, showing off their matching tattoos on instagram only a week later.

    Both Faith and Stevie got their wedding date in Roman numerals on the tops of their shoulders — VII•XVII•MMXVIII for July 17, 2018. Stevie also tattooed her initials in front of his ear — FRJ for her new married name Faith Renée Jordan.

    Although the marriage was an impulsive decision, it’s been decades in the making. Their professional relationship dates back to the mid-90’s, when Faith was signed to Bad Boy Records and Stevie J was one of the label’s in-house producers. “We’ve loved each other for years, been great friends for years, and obviously developed a romantic connection,” she told Acton Entertainment.

    They also collaborated on a new song called “A Minute” complete with a steamy music video that was coincidentally released shortly after the wedding. “We had already had the dates that we were going to put the song out before we decided to go and elope to Vegas and get married….So it’s actually good timing now, but it wasn’t really planned that way. The single was gonna come out regardless.”

    Sophie Turner


    Actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones, has a tattoo on the back of her left arm featuring the House Stark’s direwolf emblem and the phrase “the pack survives.”

    When she got the tattoo in June 2018 many fans assumed that it was a spoiler for the show’s upcoming final season, implying that the House Stark would be victorious.  However Sophie insists that’s not the case, telling James Corden:

    Actually while I was getting it done people advised me not to because it looked like I was giving everything away. But I wasn’t, it’s just a quote from last season. But everyone figures that the pack really does survive.  It’s just a moral that I like to live by.

    The quote “the pack survives” implies that there is strength in unity.  It was first said by Sansa’s father Ned Stark, but is repeated by Sophie’s character in Season 7 Episode 7 The Dragon and The Wolf, where she tells sister Arya Stark (played by Maisie Williams):

    When the snows fall and the white winds blow, the lone wolf dies, but the pack survives.

    Sophie Turner


    Sophie Turner paid tribute to her role as Jean Grey in the X-Men movie series by getting a tattoo of the X-Men logo on her left side.  It’s not known exactly when she got the ribcage tattoo, which was first seen at the Beijing premiere of X-Men: Apocalypse in May 2016.

    Rather than getting the classic X-Men logo, which has much thicker lines, her tattoo shows as updated version which serves as the logo for Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters in the film.  Sophie played a younger version of Jean Grey who was a student at the school.  She will resume her role as a more mature Jean Grey and alter-ego the Phoenix in the 2019 film X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

    Maren Morris


    Maren Morris got this roman numeral tattoo the back of her left arm to celebrate the success of her single “I Could Use A Love Song.” It was her first solo number one on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, having previously topped the chart with her feature on Thomas Rhett’s “Craving You.”

    More importantly, “I Could Use a Love Song” was nominated for Best Country Solo Performance at the 2018 Grammy Awards. She decided that she would honor the achievement and the song during her trip to attend the Grammy Awards ceremony. “Oh, and a ICUALS tattoo is definitely happening when I’m in NYC for Grammys. #SorryDad,” she tweeted.

    She showed off her fresh ink on the red carpet at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala on January 27, 2018, telling Billboard:

    It’s been an amazing month. I can’t believe — It went number one, and then we’re at the Grammys this weekend….Watching it inch up the chart all week, and then they finally said it went number one and I could just exhale, finally. It was really exciting. I actually got a tattoo today to signify the number of weeks it was on the chart. So it’s 42. It’s the first number one so I want to celebrate it.

    “I Could Use A Love Song” was released on March 27, 2017 as the third single for debut album Hero. The sleeper hit climbed the chart slowly after debuting at number 56. It finally hit number one on the chart dated January 20, 2018 after 42 long weeks. Maren’s tattoo says “XLII” which is the roman numeral for 42.

    Noah Cyrus


    Noah Cyrus got the name “Constantine” tattooed on the back of her wrist in March 2018 in memory of her horse Constantine who died two years prior.  She tweeted a picture of herself riding the horse and wrote:

    My best friend named Constantine who passed away 7.5.16 I’ll #AlwaysBeOnYourTeam buddy

    Horseback riding is one of Noah’s favorite hobbies, and it’s something that makes her feel like her most authentic self.  She rode competitively when she was younger and dreamed of making a career out of it until she decided at 14 years old that she wanted to be a singer.  She told Access:

    I love riding horses.  I still ride horses.  I just got a new horse actually a couple weeks ago because I missed riding horses so much that I needed it.  I’m gone so much that I felt that I was losing who I really was in a weird way.  And that’s who I am.  I grew up on a farm.  I love animals.  I love going home and being able to be a tomboy.  I have to dress up and put on this makeup every day, and I want to go get dirty in a barn and be a tomboy for a while.
