Kesha got this dollar sign tattoo early in her career. The dollar sign in her name actually came from her tattoo which symbolizes her lack of money at the time.
“The dollar sign in my name is a tattoo–a bad tattoo. And, uh, it just came about because I was broke, and I was just making a joke out of it. Instead of being, like, mad like, ‘I’m so broke,’ I was just like, ‘WHATEVER! Out of money…Whatever. I don’t need money.’ So, out of money, put it on my hand, put it in my name, and it was just kind of a joke, and it stuck.”
She stylized her name as Ke$ha for many years. After she left rehab in March 2014 she turned over a new leaf and dropped the dollar sign from her name because she felt that it represented her old self.
