Ke$ha (born Kesha Rose Sebert) has a total of 6 tattoos. Her first tattoo was an anchor:
“The first tattoo is an anchor I got when I snuck into Cuba when I was 18. I got that because we were hanging out with this guy, and he was like, “If you give me five dollars, I’ll give you a tattoo.” So I’m like, “All right, fine.” He gave me an anchor tattoo because I’m a diver.”
Two of Ke$ha’s tattoos are homemade. She received them from her friend. One is a cross on her wrist; the other is “YEAH!” on her foot.
“I had just finished my record, so that night we got a little crazy, and we thought it was a really good idea to give each other tattoos to symbolize such a special event in my life. So he gave me a cross. Or one could call it a t. Or an x. And then this is pretty embarrassing, but–it’s fading–my friend tattooed YEAH! on my foot.”
Ke$ha has a dollar sign on her hand and a skull and crossbones on the same arm as the anchor and cross. The dollar sign in her name actually comes from her tattoo which symbolizes her lack of money at the time.
“The dollar sign in my name is a tattoo- a bad tattoo. And, uh, it just came about because I was broke, and I was just making a joke out of it. Instead of being, like, mad like, “I’m so broke,” I was just like, “WHATEVER! Out of money…Whatever. I don’t need money.” So, out of money, put it on my hand, put it in my name, and it was just kind of a joke, and it stuck.”
Ke$ha tattooed “suck it” on the inside of her lip in June 2012. The inner lip is often used for “silly” tattoos such as these because it’s almost always hidden, but Ke$ha showed hers off in a photo posted to her twitter.
