Name Tattoos

Lauren Jauregui


Lauren Jauregui has memorial tattoos for both of her grandmothers. First she got a dragonfly on the back of her neck for her mom’s mother.  Then she got this tattoo of her paternal grandmother’s name “Angelica” on her left forearm in October 2016.

After Angelica died in February 2015, Lauren posted a heartfelt tribute on her instagram page:

Yesterday I lost a large piece of my world. My most beautiful, intelligent, strong, angel. The woman who taught me that a strong mind and heart are essential in this life. Thank you for giving me your unconditional love and wisdom throughout my life, listening to me and making me feel like I was heard and that my feelings were always valid. You will always be in my heart. Thank you for 80 years of your essence, you will be missed greatly but I know that God is happy that you’re home and safe now and I also know you will always be with me. I love you Abuelita, mi linda..siempre.❤️

Ruby Rose


Ruby Rose’s first and thus-far only leg tattoo is a unicorn on her right thigh with the name “Lauren,” presumably for an ex-girlfriend, which she got in March 2012. “I thought I’d never fall in love again.. I said i would never get a leg tattoo..I said I’d never get a girls name tattooed. Never say never.” she tweeted. She then posted a picture of the new ink, writing “Everyone keeps asking about the new tattoo, I get these for me, not for anyone else but here it is.. x”

In May 2015, she posted a photo on her Facebook of this tattoo with bandages over it, explaining that she she had just had her first session of laser tattoo removal. “Ouchhhhhhhh!!!!! Ok so.. I never thought I’d see the day.. But I decided to remove a couple of tattoos ( ones that were not done well ) and well.. Yes it’s actually the most painful thing in the world but thank you #laseraway @laseraway for making it bearable. 10 sessions.. 1 down 9 to go.”

However it doesn’t seem that she followed through with her tattoo removal plans — or at least she hasn’t had time to schedule the remaining sessions — as the tattoo is still clearly visible in photos from her August 2016 beach vacation.

Ruby Rose


Ruby Rose commemorated her relationship with partner Phoebe Dahl by getting this tattoo of a heart on her back with their names in it. She showed off the new tattoo in an April 1, 2014 instagram photo which she captioned “Whoops spelt romeo and juliet wrong oh well ;)” The couple announced their engagement a few weeks earlier after three months of dating.

Unfortunately they never made it down the aisle and broke up in December 2015. “[Phoebe] remains very dear to my heart. I will forever treasure our time together. I’m a better person because of the time we shared,” Ruby wrote on Twitter.

Ruby has yet to remove Phoebe’s name from the tattoo, though she has already altered it once — adding paint strokes all around the outside of the heart.

Ruby Rose


Ruby Rose has two boxing-related tattoos on the right side of her upper back.  The first part of the tattoo is a tribute to her godfather Lionel Rose, an accomplished professional boxer who was the first indigenous Australian to win a world boxing title. Lionel passed away in May 2011 at the age of 62.  That same month, Ruby visited Sydney Australia tattoo artist Rhys Gordon to get a tribute piece. She got a tattoo on her right shoulder blade of a pair of boxing gloves and a laurel wreath with Lionel’s name at the bottom.

Ruby, whose birth name is Ruby Rose Lagenheim, was named after Lionel Rose but is not biologically related to him. He and her father were close friends. Back in 2012 Lionel’s family stirred up controversy by saying that they hadn’t had any relationship with Ruby since her parents’ divorce and alleging that she was using the name “Rose” to further her own career by association to Lionel. Though it’s true that Ruby didn’t have any contact with Lionel later in her life, she says that seeing him as a young girl had a major impact on her.

“I met Lionel five or six times as a young tacker and he was a huge inspiration to me,” she told the Herald Sun. “I didn’t have a dad. Those trips to Lionel’s, while very few and far between, were everything. We had a crummy life, we didn’t have any money, dad was like `how’s it going?, but Lionel had a real impact on me…He passed away as my godfather. They can’t take that away from me…I love him – and if he’s looking down on me from heaven, I know he would be proud of the things I do.”

One of the thing that Ruby did honor Lionel’s legacy was to train as an amateur boxer herself. In November 2012 she added onto the tattoo with two yellow lightning bolts and “The Thorn” which is her own boxing nickname. She entered a few amateur fights around the time that she got the tattoo, but it seems that since then she’s put her own boxing gloves to rest.

Miley Cyrus


Miley Cyrus and her mother Leticia “Tish” Cyrus went together to get tattoos from artist Dr Woo in April 2016. Tish got an arrow on her arm and Miley got a tribute to Elvis Presley. On her right arm, just below her elbow, are the letters of Elvis’ name in the shape of a heart. It’s shaded so that the letters are dark and the top and bottom and lighter in the center. (more…)
