Initial Tattoos

Hayley Williams


Hayley Williams got the letters “AL” tattooed on the back of her left wrist in honor of her band Paramore’s fifth studio album After Laughter. She got the tattoo a few days after the album’s May 12, 2017 release date. Fans got their first look at the new tattoo during Paramore’s first television performance of the album’s lead single “Hard Times” at Jimmy Kimmel Live on May 17, 2017.

Beyoncé


Beyoncé altered her “IV” finger tattoo in August 2016. She covered the previously red tattoo with black ink and changed the design slightly. It now looks like a combination of a number 4 and a letter “J” for Jay-Z. Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z originally got the matching “IV” tattoos to commemorate their 2008 wedding. Four is their lucky number and they chose April 4th (4/4) as their wedding date.

Beyonce’s old tattoo had started to look very faded, which was most likely just natural wear-and-tear. However the lighter appearance of the tattoo lead to lots of speculation that she was having it removed and their marriage was failing. Beyonce and Jay-Z are now in a great place in their relationship. If both of their lyrics are to be believed, they’ve moved on past his infidelity. With this tattoo Beyonce is showing the world that their marriage is stronger than ever.
