California Tattoos

Kylie Jenner


Kylie Jenner has moved on from Tyga and she’s got the ink to prove it.  The reality TV star inked a tiny “t” on her ankle in November 2016 after years of dating of the rapper, but only six months later the relationship and the tattoo had both been replaced.

While her relationship with Tyga was always rocky and on-and-off, it’s been smooth sailing with new beau Travis Scott.  They got their own pair of matching tattoos, butterflies on their ankles, in May 2017.

At the same time, she covered up Tyga’s initial and transformed the “t” (𝓽) into an “LA” (𝓵𝓪) for her hometown of Los Angeles, California.

The original tattoo was so tiny that she could have covered it with almost anything bigger — and perhaps she still will.  But for the meantime she needed a quick fix so she chose to keep it discrete and work with what she had. The lowercase cursive “t” already looked like an “l” so all she had to do was add on an “a.”

Ash Costello


Ash Costello got this tattoo of a coffin on her right forearm from artist Danny Anchor at Illuminati Tattoo Lounge in January 2016.  The number “714” inside the coffin is the area code for the greater Los Angeles, California region, where she grew up.

“I have lots of Anaheim pride and I don’t know how I’ve never gotten a ‘714’ tattoo — the area code of where I live,” she told Fuse, “I’ve always wanted one. It’s just there’s always some other crazy idea that I have that I want to get first. So I actually really want to get ‘714’ tattooed on me.”
