Melanie Martinez has a tattoo on her left forearm of a Kewpie doll in a pink rabbit costume carrying an ice cream cone. She got this tattoo from Lauren Winzer in June 2015 along with three others. The design is inspired by two childhood memories, which she recalled to Fuse:
This one is based off of a couple experiences from when I was a kid. My first word was “mine.” It happened when I was in my walker in my driveway and my dad snatched an ice cream out of my hand and I just screamed “mine!”…like “Give me my ice cream! Why’d you take my ice cream?” And then there’s a picture of me outside dressed as a bunny…So I just did a little Kewpie baby dressed as a bunny, holding ice cream that’s melting, just to mix the two experiences.
