Cross Tattoos

Cindy Kimberly


Cindy Kimberly has a hand-poked astrological design on her upper back created by¬†Neiz Vesten. The artist creates his own “Code Ink” designs for each of his clients based on their birth date.¬†Cindy’s unique tattoo features an upside down triangle, a spiral of dots, and a cross. She had it done while in Bali in September 2016.

Her artist Neiz Vesten writes:

My last tattoo #CodeInk in Bali for @wolfiecindy. I only create artwork for each individual person who would love to embody my art for the rest of their days. All I need is your date of birth & with that I create specific codes that represent you & only you. I create MY art & MY vision. I don’t create art work upon my client’s ideas or request nor do I sell my designs.

Asia Argento


In May 2013, Asia Argento got this¬†tattoo on her left forearm of the¬†Patriarchal cross¬†(‚ė®) and “Firmeza” — a Portuguese¬†word meaning firmness or stability. ¬†It represents her steadfast belief in Christ. Both the cross and the writing are upside down so that they face inwards towards her when she looks at them.

She shared a photo of the tattoo along with a Portuguese hymn “Firmeza firmeza no amor / Firmeza firmeza aonde estou /Eu estou firme com meu Jesus / Eu estou firme nesta luz / Aonde estou” which translates to “Firmness firmness in love / Firmness steadfastness where I am / I am firm with my Jesus / I am firm in this light / Where I am”
