“No filter it’s the real deal..came bck for the second round of my mural on my back! I should be able to complete the top & the side next visit! Thx @tatubaby I love it & can’t wait to see it finished!! If your in Miami u should check her out!!” – Tameka Cottle said on one of her Instagram posts about her ample back tattoo design.
Lily Cole has a brushstroke-style hummingbird tattoo on her right side.
Jessica Origliasso has a cartoon girl with guitar tattooed on her left upper arm.
Maren Morris has a tattoo of a watercolor-style hummingbird on the inside of her left forearm. She loves hummingbirds, but it is symbolic of her music career as well. She explained to Country Note:
This is my first tattoo. It’s a hummingbird. My first ever guitar was a Gibson Hummingbird. And I just love them. That was when I was 18.
Based on an interview with Huffington Post, it seems like the Gibson Hummingbird was actually her third guitar. She got a cheap Ibanez acoustic guitar from her dad when she was 12, which she loaned to a neighbor and never saw again; and Martin acoustic guitar which she still has. The Gibson Hummingbird was an 18th birthday present from her parents.
Regardless, the Gibson Hummingbird is the one that’s special to her. We love that she found a creative an beautiful way to represent it with this hummingbird design rather than getting a picture of the guitar itself.
“Got some insane ink by the power couple @rukus_tattoo and @needlesiren this week ?.”
