Kesha’s Tattoos

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.

    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 Sorry to tell you but the bible is out of date.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

    • 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:

    lol, they all look like freebies you get at any tattoo shop just for picking a random graphic out of a hat… nothing to see here…

  11. KK-Duhh says:

  12. Abby says:

    i think tattoos are so stupid. makes you look like your permanently covered in dirt…

  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.

  21. BLUEBOY says:
