Teardrop Tattoos

Noah Cyrus

Noah Cyrus has a tiny teardrop tattoo on her left index finger which matches her sister Miley Cyrus.  It is meant to be filled in with blue ink, but the blue keeps wearing off due to friction.  She has already had it retouched once but the color doesn’t seem to stay.  In most pictures only the black outline is visible.

The tattoo also has a special significance to Noah because it reminds her of her debut single “Make Me (Cry)” which kickstarted her music career.


Sky Ferreira

Teardrop tattoos on the face have many traditional meanings, one of their symbolisms is that the wearer has been to prison. Sky Ferreira got hers on her finger in honor of rapper Lil Wayne when he was sent to jail from weapon possession in 2010. Lil Wayne himself has multiple teardrop tattoos on his face.

She told MTV: “I got a tear drop because this was right before Lil Wayne was going to jail. Even though that also means I killed somebody, but I didn’t kill anybody, sorry.” (more…)
