Lauren Jauregui

Lauren Jauregui got this Roman numeral tattoo on her right elbow in August 2015. It says “XXVII” which represents the number 27.

She considers 27 to be her lucky number. It is the date of two major life events: she was born on June 27, 1996 and her musical group Fifth Harmony was formed on July 27, 2012 during the second season of The X Factor USA. Fifth Harmony named their sophomore album 7/27 after the date they were formed and released the album on May 27, 2016 to fit with the 27 theme. Lauren sees the number 27 in other places as well: “Everytime I’ve looked at the clock today it’s been __:27 weird,” she once tweeted.

Along with a photo of the tattoo, Lauren posted a link to a numerology website which explains that people born on the 27th day of the month are believed to be “compassionate, highly intelligent and kind…true humanitarians, natural teachers, healers and counselors.”

Ariel Winter

Ariel Winter has a tattoo on the inside of right wrist of the spade symbol from a deck of cards. The inking is a tribute to her maternal grandmother Helen G. Batistas, who taught her how to play poker.

“I have a spade on my wrist because I love playing cards, like more than anything, it’s my favorite thing to do.” Ariel told ET. “I’ve been playing poker since I was six years old. My grandmother actually taught me when I was young, so I have a spade for her.”

Ariel has had a complicated relationship with her mother Chrisoula, whom she has accused of both verbal and physical abuse, so her relationship with her grandmother was extra special. E! News reports that Ariel’s older sister Shanelle, who would eventually become Ariel’s legal guardian, was removed from her mother’s home temporarily at the age of 12 and placed in the care of their grandmother.

Helen passed away from a massive stroke at the age of 72 in August 2010. However Ariel still holds a special place in her heart for her. “Yiayia we’ve missed you everyday since you left us in 2010. We love you so much.” she tweeted in 2015.

The timeline for this tattoo is a bit confusing. Ariel posted videos on her Snapchat while getting the tattoo done by artist Dr Woo on November 17, 2016, but she had previously talked about the tattoo in an October 2016 interview with ET. Our best guess is that she got the tattoo done at an earlier date and then had it retouched by Dr Woo in November.

Whenever it was first done, we know that she had thought about getting a memorial tattoo for years beforehand. Back in October 2012, Ariel posted a picture on her instagram of a temporary tattoo that she drew with a marker of her grandmother’s nickname “yiayia” and her date of death.

    “It all starts at the root,” Jordyn wrote on her instagram. The tattoo was done by artist Rafael Valdez in September 2015 using a single needle style.
