Cartoons Tattoos

Melanie Martinez


Melanie Martinez has a tattoo on her left calf of the children’s book character Madeline along with a quote from the series.  In the stories, Madeline lives in a Catholic boarding school in Paris.  She and her schoolmates always say a prayer before they eat their meals: “We love our bread, we love our butter, but most of all, we love each other.” It is a reminder that the people in our lives are the most important thing.  Melanie included this prayer in her tattoo, which features Madeline holding a loaf of bread and is surrounded by little pink hearts. It was inked by artist Nat G at Good Luck Tattoo in January 2016.

Melanie Martinez got a pair of tattoos on the back of her calves by artist Shon Lindauer in October 2015 featuring two characters from the 1936 Disney Silly Symphonies short film Elmer Elephant.  In the cartoon, Elmer picks flowers and brings them to Tillie Tiger for her birthday party.  The tattoo on Melanie’s right leg shows Elmer looking bashful after giving Tillie the bouquest.  Elmer is made fun of by the other animals for his long nose and tries to hide it in order to fit in, but Tillie is nice to him.  Elmer eventually saves the day by rescuing Tillie from her burning house using his nose as a hose.

This tattoo of a cute little tiger cub on Melanie Martinez’s right calf goes with the elephant tattoo on her opposite leg.  The Tillie Tiger character appears in the 1936 Disney Silly Symphonies cartoon short Elmer Elephant, where she is Elmer’s love interest.  She doesn’t judge him for his long nose like the other animals.  The tattoo shows Tilling holding a bouquet a flowers which were a birthday gift from Elmer.  Melanie got both tattoos done by artist by artist Shon Lindauer at High Seas Tattoo Parlor in October 2015.
