Pancho Placas Tattoos

In May 2016, Melanie Martinez got this tattoo of a clock from artist Pancho Placas at High Seas Tattoo Parlor.

Melanie Martinez’s upper arm tattoo is a young girl eating a bowl of alphabet soup — but she added some spiders to give it a morbid twist.  She explained to GRAMMY Pro:
