In April 2016, Ellie Goulding got this geometric design tattooed on her left side by Dr Woo, the same artist who did a similar piece on the opposite side of her ribcage. Dr Woo created this original piece of art based on inspiration photos that Ellie brought in to his studio. It is inspired by stars, planets and galaxies, but he took lots of artistic license to create a geometric piece that isn’t too literal.

Ellie Goulding 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.” The tattoo has faded considerably and is no longer visible at all. (more…)

Ellie Goulding’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.” (more…)

  1. I love ellie goulding’s songs n her tattoos coz she is my role model moreover I have most of her songs in my phone.wshn to c her face to face.
    thanks to her I sing her songs each time like her.

  2. This Triangle actually comes from her song “Wish I Stayed” the lyrics are “Why do I always draw Triangles instead of words this paper so deserves” That song was released in 2010 with the original UK Lights, It was sadly not released in the US version of Lights, its my favourite song! Tessellate was just recently released and she has had this tattoo since early 2011! So NO, Its not tessellate!

  3. “Triangles are my favourite shape, three points where two lines meet.” is a line from Alt-J’s song Tessellate.
    Are you sure Ellie said this?
