Singer Devin Star Tailes, know by her stage name Dev, has a prominent diamond tattoo on her left shoulder, and seems to be working towards a full sleeve on her left arm.
Dev has a pink diamond tattooed on the front of her left shoulder
On the top of her left shoulder, Dev has an outline of a rose in black ink.
Right beneath it, Dev has another rose which has been filled in with red ink. She later filled the leaves in with green. (It is pictured here freshly done and wrapped in plastic wrap)
On the back of her left bicep, Dev has what she describes as “my unfinished naked bird girl.”
On Dev’s inner bicep, she has the lyrics “We used to talk like lovers,” which comes from The Cateracs’ song “Undercover”
On the inside of her elbow is an unfilled daisy.
Around her elbow are the words “Esta Loca,” which is Spanish for “she’s crazy” or “it’s crazy” (feminine form). Dev is of Mexican and Portuguese descent and honors her heritage with tattoos in both Spanish and and Portuguese for her two grandmothers. “It says ‘Esta Loca’, because my crazy Mexican grandmother used to say that to me,” Dev says.
Matching the “Esta Loca” tattoo is Dev’s “Menina Bonita” tattoo for her other grandmother. She says that these two are her favorite tattoos. Dev explains: “It says ‘Menina Bonita’ which means ‘beautiful girl’ in Portuguese because my Portuguese grandma used to always say that to me.”
Dev and her mom got “and what” tattooed on their wrists together. “It says ‘and what’ in case anyone tries to run their mouth, and then we flash our tattoos and go ‘and what!’,” Dev says.
Dev has a pair of swallow tattoos on the sides of her lower back.
In April 2012, Dev got a pair of tattoos which are her fist tattoos on her legs. On her left thigh she tattooed “James” for her fiancé James “Jimmy” Gorecki, who is a professional skateboarder. Dev and Jimmy have a daughter Emilia Lovely Gorecki who was born in December 2011.
Dev tattooed the letters “RLSM” on the side of her right knee. Supposedly these are the initials of her family members.
Dev is best known for singing the chorus of Far East Movement’s hit single “Like A G6.” She has also appeared on “Backseat” by New Boyz, “Top of the World” by The Cataracs, and “A1″ by Bobby Brackins. She has released a few singles of her own including “Fireball,” “Booty Bounce,” “Bass Down Low,” “In the Dark,” and “Naked.” Her debut album The Night the Sun Came Up is out now.
