British singer and songwriter Ellie Goulding has four tattoos.
In an interview with 99 Scenes, she revealed that she has a small letter “J” tattoo on her left side which we have not seen in any photos.
Ellie’s first tattoo was a red ink outline of a triangle on the inside of her right wrist. Ellie loves triangles and in her song “Wish I Stayed” she sings “Why do I always draw triangles instead of the words this paper so deserves?”
She told GQ magazine “I got a random tattoo the other day. It’s a red triangle, which makes everyone think I’m arty, which I’m not. I used to draw red triangles all the time. It must mean something — maybe I don’t know it yet. But I’ll figure it out.”
Ellie has an arrow tattoo in white ink on her right index finger. She got the tattoo in June 2013, but she had been planning it for years before getting it done. Back in 2011 she filmed a video at Salvation Tattoo Lounge in South Beach Miami where she asked the artist to design her a few sketches of arrow tattoos. “I was thinking about getting an arrow — whether it be red, white, brown,” she said. “I’d love to see some different kind of sketches of different arrows. Because there are so many, I’d like to compare them.”
Ellie got writing in red ink tattooed on her left wrist by artist Dr Woo at Shamrock Social Club in Hollywood, CA in November 2013. It is the Tibetan mantra “Om mani padme hum” which means “jewel in the lotus.”
Ellie got a lotus flower tattooed on her right side of her ribcage by artist Dr Woo at Shamrock Social Club in Hollywood, CA in April 2014. She shared an instagram photo of her new tattoo with the caption: “Say not ‘I have found the truth’ but rather ‘I have found a truth.'”
