Jade Thirlwall has a tattoo along her spine which means “Anyone can achieve their dream if they’ve got the courage.” It’s a tribute her her maternal grandfather, Mohammid Badwi, and she has it written in Arabic because he was Arabic. Jade is quarter-Egyptian and quarter-Yemeni.
“It’s taken three years to get it right, as I’m such a perfectionist,” she told UnrealityTV “Basically, it’s in Arabic, as my Granddad was Arabic, so it’s kind of like a memory of him. It says ‘Anyone can achieve their dream if they’ve got the courage’.”
Wearing a backless gown at the GQ Men of the Year Awards at The Royal Opera House in London, United Kingdom on September 02, 2014, Jourdan Dunn showed off her tiny tattoo on the back of her left shoulder, which is her name written in Arabic font.
