Watercolor Tattoos

Maren Morris

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.



    “New ink by my fav. @alexstrangler who does everything basically from my knees down 😊 I wanted to make a statement on women and how we need to stand up and protect ourselves. No one is saving us nor do we need to be saved by someone ACTUALLY yall need to save yourselves from US because women are doing alot of power moves lately *old school gun emoji*”


      Julia Michaels

      Julia Michaels added a pink lotus flower tattoo on her right elbow on February 25, 2015. She chose the lotus, which is a symbol of rebirth, because she had just gone through a break-up.

      Of all her tattoos, this is the only one that she’s not quite happy with. She told Power 93.3:

      I do kind of regret this one. It’s my lotus, but it looks like an artichoke. And I got it the day my ex broke up with me the first time — I know, I’m a mess.  And I thought, like an idiot, that I could combat emotional pain with physical pain. Don’t do it, guys — not smart.

      She joked around about it with Maxwell:

      It ended up looking like a colorful artichoke. And every time I look at it I just — I can’t stand it…This just looks so ridiculous. So I want to get that covered up so badly…Choose your artist well.
