Stick-and-Poke Tattoos

Hayley Williams


Hayley Williams got the letters “AL” tattooed on the back of her left wrist in honor of her band Paramore’s fifth studio album After Laughter. She got the tattoo a few days after the album’s May 12, 2017 release date. Fans got their first look at the new tattoo during Paramore’s first television performance of the album’s lead single “Hard Times” at Jimmy Kimmel Live on May 17, 2017.

Dua Lipa


Dua Lipa got this homemade stick-and-poke tattoo of an eye in her own kitchen in March 2017. It was done by Amy Bowerman who is the wife of Dua’s drummer William Bowerman. After sketching out multiple versions of the eye on paper,  Amy used a needle and ink to tattoo it onto Dua’s inside right ankle.

“@williambowerman has come over for dinner and as a house warming gift his wife is giving me a stick n poke tattoo,” Dua Lipa wrote on Twitter.  She said the “all seeing eye” is there to protect you.
