Jon Boy Tattoos

Halsey


Halsey got a tattoo of a butterfly on her right forearm from artist Jon Boy in May 2018. Butterflies have appeared in her artwork throughout the Hopeless Fountain Kingdom album cycle, including the “Bad At Love” single cover and final installment tour poster. Butterflies are the emblem of the House of Spera, one of the fictional rival families whose stories she tells on the album.

The exact butterfly design that Halsey tattooed on her arm was created as a logo for the Hopeless Fountain Kingdom tour, appearing on a variety of merchandise and on her meet and greet backdrop.

Halsey


Halsey has the lyrics “i’m a loser baby” tattooed along the left side of her neck in delicate cursive writing. This phrase was made¬†famous by alternative singer-songwriter Beck’s 1993 hit song “Loser,” however these lyrics are also used in the 2017 song “Loser Baby” by indie band La Bouquet. She is a fan of both artists but has more of a personal relationship with La Bouquet¬†and has actually tweeted about their song, which is more likely the direct inspiration for the tattoo.¬†La Bouquet band member¬†Bryan Sammis was one of the opening acts for Halsey’s American You(th) Tour with his solo project¬†Olivver the Kid.

Halsey’s tattoo was done by¬†artist Jon Boy at Bang Bang Tattoos in New York City¬†in January 2017.¬†She was accompanied by¬†her boyfriend G-Eazy for the second time. He got an angel and devil on his arms which Halsey drew for him.
