Kesha’s Tattoos


Kesha Rose Sebert aka Ke$ha has around 15 tattoos. Most are small pieces located on her right wrist and on her feet. She’s a fan of homemade “stick-and-poke” style tattoos and many of her tattoos were done for her by friends. She has also picked up the tattoo gun herself and given tattoos to friends and fans.

Hands

Kesha dollar sign hand tattoo

Kesha got this dollar sign tattoo early in her career. The dollar sign in her name actually came 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.”

She stylized her name as Ke$ha for many years. After she left rehab in March 2014 she turned over a new leaf and dropped the dollar sign from her name because she felt that it represented her old self.

Kesha eye hand tattoo

Kesha has an eye tattoo on the palm of her right hand which features prominently in her “Crazy Kids” music video. Its placement is inspired by Middle Eastern hamsa amulets, which are shaped like a hand with an eye in the center. The hamsa is thought to provide protection from the “evil eye” and other evil spirits.

Kesha dot finger tattoo

Kesha has a little black dot on her left middle finger that seems to be a tattoo.

Wrist

Kesha anchor wrist tattoo

Kesha’s anchor tattoo on her wrist was her first. “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.”

Kesha dots wrist tattoo

Above the anchor are three dots in a triangular pattern. This is a traditional sailor tattoo which sailors would get on their first voyage.

kesha cross wrist tattoo

Kesha got this homemade cross tattoo on her wrist in celebration of completing her first album in 2009. A friend did the tattoo using a safety pin and pen ink.

She told Details “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.”

Feet

Kesha has the word “YEAH!” tattooed on the inside of her right foot. A friend gave her this tattoo in 2009 on the night that she finished her debut album.

Kesha heart foot tattoo

Kesha has an outline of a heart on the top of her right foot, near her toes.

Kesha got this heart tattoo on the back of her foot in September 2011.

Kesha fun foot tattoo

Kesha tattooed the word “FUN” in red ink on her left foot in March 2012. “Woke up this morning feeling fun. New tat!” she tweeted.

Kesha smiley face foot tattoo

Kesha celebrated New Years Day by getting a stick-and-poke smiley face tattoo on January 1st 2014 for a “happy” new year.

Kesha animal foot tattoo

Kesha tattooed the word “ANIMAL” on the top of her left foot in July 2013. It is in honor of her fans, whom she calls animals. Animal was the title of her 2010 debut album.

She shared a picture of the tattoo on instagram with the caption “I love my animals. I couldn’t sleep because I was so overwhelmed by how amazing you all are to me.”

Kesha cat toe tattoo

Kesha got a cat face on her left big toe in July 2013 at the same time as her “Animal” tattoo. She is a huge cat lover and has three pet cats — Mr. Peep$, Mr. Fluffy Pant$, and Charlie.

She has also jokingly formed a Cat Cult. “So I’ve always wanted to have a cult, I think I could be a pretty good cult leader,” she told E!. “So I’m going to start a cult and people can be in it if they like to be cats or play with cats or play with cat toys.”

Kesha c foot tattoo

Kesha got this letter “C” tattoo on her foot for an appearance on Conan O’Brien’s show in August 2014. She wore a dress with his face printed on it for her previous visit, but this time she took it a step further.

“It’s for you,” she told Conan. “I was so excited to see you last night, I was in a frenzy. I was running around with my cats and I didn’t know what to do, and so I tattooed a C on my foot.”

She convinced her assistant to get the C tattoo as well. “My assistant, who has no tattoos, she’s like the sweetest little angel — I was like ‘come here’ and I chased her down and gave her one too.”

Face

Kesha suck it lip tattoo

Kesha 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 Kesha showed hers off in a photo posted to her twitter.

She got the tattoo as a way of telling off her haters. She revealed to Conan “I was kind of fed up with all the nasty little bloggers and I was like ‘you know what, suck it.’”

    Ke$ha is exactly who she wants to be. She says to always be yourself, unapologetically & to give the finger to the haters.
    Her tattoos are on her body. NOT YOURS! Yes tattoos last forever and so will her memories that are attached to them.
    It’s 2013.. Sorry to tell you but the bible is out of date. People can believe whatever they choose. You cannot tell her (or anyone else on this earth) what to believe in. You can think her tats are a sign of the devil if you wish but I don’t think she gives a fuck. She’s not telling you how to live your life so don’t tell her how to live hers.

    Love into the Light. Animals unite <3

  2. Michelle says:

    • kels says:

      oh, shut the fuck up, you ignorant bible-thumper.

    • Your comment is a little confusing because of the grammar and spelling errors but how I interpreted what you are say is that all of HER tattoos are in regards to the devil, and not just tattoos in general? If that is what you’re saying then I agree with you. She is like a drone of the illuminati, or as I like to say, killuminati. I also really think she is a reptilian. She’s evil.

    At least she didn’t catch anything from those random homemade tattoos. Especially the one from a guy she just met for $5.00. She’s so crazy though, just like her songs. <3 I love them!

  10. sho says:

  13. Aleah says:

    Ummm.. There all in the same place. And there kinda dumb tattoos too. And she got a tattoo from some random guy (if she didn’t know him..) for five BUCKS?!? Man i wish REAL tattoos were that cheap. Sucks for me tho..

  14. Jenifeeeer says:

    Kesha is the most random person I have ever seen. Her tattoos are pretty pointless , I mean a tatoo will last on your skin practically forever. Tattos getting with a meaning is something else , thats great if you decide to get a tatoo but atleast it has a bit of a story to it. @Kaysee , I respct that decision about getting your tattoo because of your husband. Her’s are just stupid items that might not even have a meaning to them. I dont really like them may I say. But my oppinion is only one right ? (:

  15. Rachel says:

    Wow. Kesha’s kind of dumb. Well, i knew that already, but seriously?

  16. sara says:

    i hav a doller sing too

  17. Amy says:

    I like the dollar signs. The others are a bit random, but hey, she is random! I respect that she is her own person!

  18. Sara says:

    It’s okay, but I don’t like tattoos.

  19. Kaysee says:

    My tattoos are homemade too. Big whoop. I have an anchor tatted on me too in the same spot as her. But i honestley think mines more, you know, noticable. I got it cuz my husband’s in the Navy though. And i got a smiley face tatted on me when i was 14. It’s close to where her dollar sign is.

  20. aly says:

  21. BLUEBOY says:
