Lauren Jauregui

Lauren Jauregui got this Roman numeral tattoo on her right elbow in August 2015. It says “XXVII” which represents the number 27.

She considers 27 to be her lucky number. It is the date of two major life events: she was born on June 27, 1996 and her musical group Fifth Harmony was formed on July 27, 2012 during the second season of The X Factor USA. Fifth Harmony named their sophomore album 7/27 after the date they were formed and released the album on May 27, 2016 to fit with the 27 theme. Lauren sees the number 27 in other places as well: “Everytime I’ve looked at the clock today it’s been __:27 weird,” she once tweeted.

Along with a photo of the tattoo, Lauren posted a link to a numerology website which explains that people born on the 27th day of the month are believed to be “compassionate, highly intelligent and kind…true humanitarians, natural teachers, healers and counselors.”

Jordyn Woods


Jordyn Woods has a tattoo of the Roman numeral “XXIII” on the back of her neck in honor of basketball legend Michael Jordan’s iconic number 23 jersey. Her own brother John Woods did the tattoo at Los Angeles’ Why Not Ink Tattoo in November 2015.

“Just landed in LA and decided to go get tatted by my brother @jwoodzart… Wouldn’t want anyone else to do this one for me. 23 forever,” she wrote on her instagram.

Noah Cyrus


Noah Cyrus’s first known tattoo is a roman numeral on her collarbone. It says “II – XXVIII – MMVI” which represents the numbers “2 – 28 – 2006.” The tattoo is a tribute to her paternal grandfather Ronald Ray Cyrus, who died on February 28, 2006. His death from lung cancer at the age of 70 also inspired Noah’s sister Miley Cyrus to get her first tattoo, which was of the words “Just Breathe.”
