Ash Costello’s Tattoos

Ash Costello and her boyfriend Jimmy Trigger got matching bat wing tattoos on their hands in September 2016 from artist Danny Anchor. It is the first tattoo on her left side.

Ash has described Jimmy and herself as “two bats in a cave.” She posted a picture of their two tattoos together captioned with the Lana Del Rey lyrics “No one even knows what life was like, now it’s paradise, no one even knows how hard life was, I don’t even think about now because, I finally found you.” It seems that they had only been dating for a month or two when they got the tattoos.

Ash Costello has a sloppy looking heart with the letters “BF” on her right forearm which was done by a friend with a tattoo gun.  We think the “artist” behind the ink is Escape The Fate lead singer Craig Mabbitt.  A year earlier, Ash tagged along with Craig while he was getting a tattoo and she ended up grabbing the gun and giving him “BFF,” a heart, and a smiley face.

Ash Costello and her New Years Day bandmates got matching noose tattoos to commemorate a tour that they did in 2016. She first revealed the fresh ink a Snapchat picture, which she captioned “gonna hang forever.” She further explained the significance in an interview with Louder Noise:

My favorite piece is what we all just got — it’s a tour tattoo. It’s a noose, and everyone on the tour got it because we’re all gonna hang out forever.

    Ash Costello got this tattoo of a coffin on her right forearm from artist Danny Anchor at Illuminati Tattoo Lounge in January 2016.  The number “714” inside the coffin is the area code for the greater Los Angeles, California region, where she grew up.

    “I have lots of Anaheim pride and I don’t know how I’ve never gotten a ‘714’ tattoo — the area code of where I live,” she told Fuse, “I’ve always wanted one. It’s just there’s always some other crazy idea that I have that I want to get first. So I actually really want to get ‘714’ tattooed on me.”

    Ash Costello has a tattoo on her right forearm of the tally mark logo from her band New Years Days’ October 2015 album Malevolence. All of the band members and crew have their own versions of this tattoo on different body parts. Rather than having the design in red, as it appears on the album, they opted for black ink with a red outline so that it stands out more. The album artwork was designed by graphic artist Eve Saint Raven.

      Ash Costello has a pair of bat wings tattooed around the back of her neck with a fleur de lis at the center. She talked about her plans for this tattoo in an interview before getting it done in Fall 2015:

      What I’m really, really jonesing for is a big neck tattoo. Very soon I’m going to be getting bat wings that are going to come up underneath [pointing to the sides of her chin]. Real big — I’m not just talking the back of the neck — I’m talking the whole thing. It’s a very serious commitment to get your neck tattooed.

      Ash Costello completed her hand tattoo in April 2015. She got “1031” on her knuckles to represent October 31st.  Halloween is her favorite holiday, but it’s really become more of a lifestyle for her. Artist Ryan Ashley Malarkey also added swirls all around Ash’s existing “Dead” tattoo, connecting the swirls to the new numbers with teardrop-shaped beads.

      Ash Costello has a large portrait tattoo on her right thigh inspired by the character Captain Spaulding from Rob Zombie’s horror movies House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects.

      She first talked about her plans for this tattoo in an October 2013 tweet: “I decided that my next tattoo will be Captain Spaulding…. But what epic Spaulding quote should I get…” However it wasn’t until much later that she actually got it inked. Artist Joey Remmers did the tattoo in a few sessions in February and March 2015.

      Ash Costello got the word “Dead” tattooed on the back of her hand in February 2014 by artist Danny Anchor. She loves zombies and vampires and often refers to herself as a “Living Dead Girl.”

      In a video, she talks about the commitment she’s made by getting this and her other hand tattoos:

      Going underneath the sleeve, as we called it, and getting onto my hand was a HUGE commitment.  As we joke, we say “there goes my bank job” or “there goes my corporate desk job.” Which obviously I was never going to have.  But getting a tattoo on your hand or neck or face solidifies like, that’s it — you are committed to being an artist and you are so screwed if you ever decide otherwise.

      Ash Costello took hold of a tattoo gun and gave herself this “Blow Me Up” tattoo on her arm in February 2014.  The phrase comes from the DC Comics villain Harley Quinn, who says “I’m having a bad day. I’m sick of people trying to shoot me, run me over, and blow me up!” For Ash, the phase represents perseverance:

      My tattoo says “blow me up” with a red and green heart. I’ve always felt like a Harley Quinn just looking for her Joker, that mad love, 2 villains, it means and no matter how much you try and blow me up, I’ll always keep coming back. So go ahead and blow me up then, but I’m still here, causing trouble, just waiting to cause some trouble with him instead.

      Ash Costello has a skull tattoo on her right thumb which is the logo for the band Misfits, who have been one of her favorite bands since she was in high school. She and Nikki Misery got the matching tattoos from artist Danny Anchor in December 2013. She writes: “Too much horror business, driving late at night. Friday the 13th tattoo #themisfits with @danny_anchor”

      Ash Costello has a tattoo a razor blade cutting her wrist to represents her struggles with depression and everything that she has overcome. She writes:

      “My Friday the 13th tattoo with the @nydrock boys. To remind me…..I have survived the worst times, the fucking worst, but I pushed through it and now I’m enjoying the best times with my best friends.”

      She got this tattoo on September 13, 2013 as part of a tradition in which tattoo parlors give discounted tattoos on every Friday the 13th.  Usually the tattoos have the number 13 in them, and Ash’s razor blade has “XIII” which is the Roman Numeral for 13.

      “I have a lot of Friday the 13th tattoos because I’m a big advocate of $20 tattoos. I have my razor blade, and the heart, and the Misfits, and other little things.”

      Ash Costello has a dark black crow with accents of purple and blue that spans the inside of her right arm. There is a quote in a banner: “It says ‘Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt,’ which is from one of my favorite books of all time, Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut,” Ash says.  Artist Baba Austin started work on the design in February 2011 and completed it in May 2011.

      “Before this one I would have said that tattoos don’t hurt, I really like the feeling, but this one hurt so bad. I don’t know if I’m like turning into a pansy. A good friend of mine Baba came up to me and offered me a free tattoo for Warped Tour. It’s like the biggest thing ever. I know this doesn’t make sense but I didn’t realize it was so big when he free-handed it, and then he started going and I was like ‘oh wow, I just ended up with half a sleeve and I don’t even know how.'”

      Ash Costello and Nikki Misery have matching broken heart tattoos on their hands with the words “I wished for you.” The heart is yellow with red blood drips on her thumb and it has an ornate design including filigree swirls and a stained glass pattern.

      They got the tattoos back in 2011 when they were dating.  Nikki was then in a different band, Stitched Up Heart, and Ash was about to leave for Warped Tour with New Years Day.  Nikki later joined New Years Day and the two are very close friends even though they are no longer a couple.  They’ve even gotten more matching tattoos.

      “My boyfriend has the other one. We realized I’m going to be away on tour for 5 more months. So we wanted to have something where it’s like a little piece of each other. So when we hold hands they connect.”

      In November 2009, Ash Costello got a “hidden” Mickey Mouse tattoo on her right index finger which is a matching tattoo with her friends Sheena and Brooke. Ash is a huge fan of Disney and frequently visits Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.

      “My family is a big Disneyland family. My great grandma, my great uncle, they all worked at Disneyland. My great uncle Eddie worked alongside Walt Disney developing the art form. My grandma was a can-can dancer. My mom worked there for a little bit, I worked there for a little bit. I just love it. I grew up like walking distance down the street. My family and I used to go to Disneyland like 3 times a week. I remember times when my mom would pull me out of school to go. So it just reminds me of being really happy at that time in my life. I can’t let it go.”

      Ash Costello has little red broken heart tattoos behind both of her ears. She got them on a whim some time around 2008.

      “I got these on tour. We were playing at this club in Colorado called the Black Sheep. I was bored and there was a tattoo parlor next door, so I walked in and I said ‘I’m in a band, I’m not from here, if anyone wants to tattoo me for free, have at it.’ And a guy volunteered.”

      These tattoos are now covered by her bat wings collar tattoo.

      One of Ash Costello’s oldest tattoos is the writing on her right wrist which says “Caviar.” In a tweet she explained “it says Caviar :) cause I got class.” It seems like she might regret this one a little.  In a tweet to a friend she wrote “cuz I decided to tattoo the word “caviar” on my wrist & thought that would be a GOOD idea?”

      Ash Costello’s first tattoo was of a music note on the inside of her right elbow.  She chose a round whole note rather than the more commonly tattooed eighth note. This tattoo was covered by the large crow that she got on this arm in 2011.

       

      My first tattoo you can’t see anymore. It was right here underneath the crow. The second I turned eighteen — that night I went out with my all friends, got a tattoo, woke my mother up at 3 am and was like “mom, I got a tattoo. I did it.” She said “No you didn’t, you’re lying.” Like “No, I did.” Poor thing.  And it’s been a running routine ever since.  Every time I get a tattoo.  But it stopped when I finally got my mom’s name tattooed on me. So I figured she couldn’t get mad at me any more and it totally worked.
