Strawberry Tattoos

Sherri DuPree-Bemis


In May 2011, Sherri DuPree-Bemis had her own drawing of Texas turned into a tattoo by Alice Kendall at Infinity Tattoo in Portland, OR. There is a moon smiling over a house which is a reference to the Eisley lyrics “mr. moon shines down on my home” from the song “Mr. Moon.” The tattoo expresses her love for her home state–the DuPree family lives in Tyler, TX and Sherri now owns a house there with her husband Max Bemis. The drawing is quite intricate and includes a rabbit, deer, butterflies, raspberry, strawberries, pine cone, pine trees and flowers. (more…)

Katy Perry

Katy Perry strawberry tattoo

Katy Perry tattooed a smiling strawberry on the inside of her left ankle in July 2009. Before getting the tattoo, she tweeted “Thinking about getting my second tattoo tonight! I wanna get a cartoon-ish strawberry to celebrate this amazeballs past 15 months.” Afterwards she posted a picture of the fresh ink and wrote “My new little friend… what shall be her name?”

Katy Perry got this tattoo to commemorate the success of her album One Of The Boys. She used inflatable strawberries as a prop on stage throughout her “Hello Katy” world tour and fruit motifs also appeared in her costumes and accessories. Speaking of the success of the album, Katy said “This past year and a half has been insane. I’m happy I’ve survived it. I really feel like this record really super-ceded my expectations. It’s been amazing. I didn’t think I would be all around the world in one year…I’ve just had so much success with this record beyond what I planned. You’re never really ready for this type of thing, and getting a tattoo would kind of be like to remember the first time.” (more…)
