Jenna McDougall got her first tattoo in February 2016 from artist Steve Tucker. It’s a traditional Celtic knot on her upper back. This particular design is know as the triquetra or trinity knot. It has many meanings, but the most common is a Christian symbol of the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).
In January 2014, artist Bang Bang gave Rihanna this tattoo of a cross on the inside of her right wrist. The intricate cross design is made from negative space and is surrounded by black ink. Rihanna also expanded the henna designs — which has previously only been on the back of her arm — all the way up to edges of the cross, making it one cohesive piece. (more…)
In March 2012, Rihanna got a small and simple cross tattooed on her left collarbone. Artist Bang Bang cut the ink with water to make the tattoo light, the same technique that he used for the “Rebelle Fleur” tattoo on her neck. Rihanna chose this placement on her neck so that she can easily hide it with a necklace when she wants to, but she can also show it off. (more…)
Florence Welch got this incredibly detailed cross tattoo on the back of her right hand from artist Bang Bang in June 2015. “Between a crucifix and the Hollywood sign……” she wrote on her instagram, “SET OUR HEARTS ABLAZE ThankYou England…..sorry mum.”
Bruna Marquezine’s second tattoo was a simple black cross on her left side, which is a tribute to her Christian faith. “The cross is because I have faith in God. I love it, and I like to look at it and to remember Him and how wonderful He is to me,” she tweeted. It’s also a reminder of her mother, who taught her to believe in God. “My mother always spoke highly of love and God to me,” she says. She had the tattoo re-done by artist Adao Rosa at Nautica Tattoo in July 2013 while getting a new tattoo of an anchor on her ankle. (more…)
Kirstin Maldonado’s second tattoo was of her favorite Bible verse “Philippians 4:13” on her right wrist. The text of this passage is: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” This is the same verse that inspired Selena Gomez‘s hip tattoo.
In September 2016, Kreayshawn got a tattoo on her chest of the Anima Sola, which is a Roman Catholic depiction of purgatory. It is a woman being engulfed by flames while her wrists are in chains.
“Baby doll @kreayshawn got her first chest piece like a boss!” wrote artist Soto Gangster on instagram.
