Feather Tattoos

Jana Kramer


Jana Kramer got this tattoo of a feather on her right side at Nashville’s Black 13 Tattoo Parlor in April 2014.  Fellow country singer Maggie Rose accompanied her and held her hand through the pain.

“About to get a tattoo @Black13Tattoo …I know what I’m gonna get but any last minute suggestions?!?!?!” she tweeted.

Dagi Bee


In June 2014, Dagi Bee got a large tattoo on her right side of a rose with beaded dreamcatcher-like feathers at the bottom.  The tattoo is outlined in black and with minimal shading.

She thought about getting this tattoo for two years, but was scared of how painful it would be to get such a large tattoo on a sensitive spot. When she finally got it done she actually ended up passing out from the pain! But she loves it now that it has healed.

Demi Lovato


Demi Lovato’s rib cage tattoo saw it’s third incarnation in September 2016, courtesy of artist Bang Bang.  With each update the tattoo has grown larger and now the huge piece covers her whole side.

The tattoo began with the lyrics “you make me beautiful” from the Bethany Dillon song “Beautiful.” This was Demi’s very first tattoo which she got when she was only sixteen.  The tattoo has religious meaning to Demi, reminding her that she can find confidence in knowing that God has made her perfect.  A few years later, in 2011, she added a pair of feathers behind the writing.

For the latest update, Bang Bang drew a dream catcher around the lyrics, using the previous pair of feathers as part of the dreamcatcher while also adding three more smaller feathers floating at the bottom and some strands of beads.  None of the beads or feathers are attached to each other, giving the design a light and ephemeral feeling.
