Simple Lettering Tattoos

Dua Lipa


Dua Lipa has a tattoo along her left forearm which says “This Means Nothing.” Artist Sean From Texas wrote the words in his own handwriting using his signature style of slightly off-kilter capital letters.

She showed off the new tattoo on her instagram in January 2015 and wrote “Insert deep quote here… or dont. #ThisMeansNothing thank you @seanfromtexas again for some dope work! #LA #SeanFromTexas#TattooMania25”

Ruby Rose


Ruby Rose got this “MTV” knuckle tattoo to commemorate the time that she spent as an MTV VJ in her native Australia. She began working for the network after winning a nationwide search for a new host in 2007. The blue ink letters are placed on her middle knuckles, below the larger “Just Love” knuckle tattoo.

She has expressed her gratitude towards MTV in a few tweets. “Forever indebted to those who believe in me and I will never take that for granted. From my family to MTV to everyone I’ve met till now,” she wrote. “Feeling blessed, never thought I would see the day I’d be working for MTV, In NY for FW AND an agency like NEXT believes so much in me.”

Ruby Rose


Ruby Rose has a tattoo on the side of her left wrist which says “D.I.Y.” — an acronym for “Do It Yourself.” This is one of her older tattoos.  When she added her tattoo of Gumby in a cat costume, she placed it carefully so that the tail wraps around this tattoo without covering it.

Andrea Russett


The letters “MJAA” on Andrea Russett’s left hand represent the names of her family members: M for her father Mark, J for her mother Jacqui, A for her sister Anna, and another A for her brother Anthony.

“For the family,” She wrote on her instagram. “Every time I look at these I think of my parents and siblings and it makes me smile. The tattoos I get will always be for me. I don’t care if no one understands them or they don’t make sense to anyone else. Been a good day.”
