Watercolor Tattoos

Sherri DuPree-Bemis


Sherri DuPree-Bemis gets a new ink on her right forearm and she really likes it as she says in her Instagram post: “My new beautiful artwork by @jwhittdesigns! I couldn’t be happier!! Thank you so much, love you dude. I’ll get better pics when she’s not swollen”.

The tattooist artist, Joshua Whitten, aslo commented: “Had a great time doing this piece for @sdupreebemis. Always a good time hanging with this awesome couple, thanks again @maxbemis @sdupreebemis (I’ll get some better pics asap 😅)”.

Ruby Rose


Ruby Rose commemorated her relationship with partner Phoebe Dahl by getting this tattoo of a heart on her back with their names in it. She showed off the new tattoo in an April 1, 2014 instagram photo which she captioned “Whoops spelt romeo and juliet wrong oh well ;)” The couple announced their engagement a few weeks earlier after three months of dating.

Unfortunately they never made it down the aisle and broke up in December 2015. “[Phoebe] remains very dear to my heart. I will forever treasure our time together. I’m a better person because of the time we shared,” Ruby wrote on Twitter.

Ruby has yet to remove Phoebe’s name from the tattoo, though she has already altered it once — adding paint strokes all around the outside of the heart.

Ash Costello


Ash Costello has a large portrait tattoo on her right thigh inspired by the character Captain Spaulding from Rob Zombie’s horror movies House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects.

She first talked about her plans for this tattoo in an October 2013 tweet: “I decided that my next tattoo will be Captain Spaulding…. But what epic Spaulding quote should I get…” However it wasn’t until much later that she actually got it inked. Artist Joey Remmers did the tattoo in a few sessions in February and March 2015.

Paris Jackson


Paris Jackson has a large tattoo on her right forearm of the Frank the Rabbit mask from the movie Donnie Darko and the words “Wake Up.” The bunny’s head is tattooed in grayscale, with splatters of blue paint behind it.

After turning 18, Paris Jackson covered herself with a large amount of tattoos in a short period of time.  This one on her arm is the largest so far.  Responding to critics, she wrote an instagram post explaining that her tattoos cover up scars from self-harming and replace them with meaningful works of art.

the craftsmanship of tattoos will always be a controversy. some people like them, some people absolutely hate them. i appreciate art, i always have. especially when that art means something to me. today i can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me, i don’t see a dark past anymore. my scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity.. and depth. sure i will always carry my past with me, but i see ink as a way of changing for the better, always improving. they represent strength for me. i look back at my old self and then i look in the mirror, and i see a fighter looking back at me. i’ll always keep fighting, and encouraging others to stay strong. we all go through hell every now and then but it makes us the warriors of love we were meant to be. so to anyone struggling, it gets better. you’re not alone.

Maren Morris


Maren Morris got this beautiful watercolor-style bull skull tattoo from artist Amanda Wachob in July 2016. She chose a longhorn bull to represent her Texan heritage and added flowers to show her feminine side.  She explained on instagram how this tattoo represents the different aspects of her personality: “Little bit Texan sass, little bit feminine. Thanks, @amandawachob ! Love your talent. Have followed her work for almost 6 years! 👍🏼🌸” (more…)
