Disney Tattoos

Scout Taylor-Compton


Scout Taylor-Compton has a “dinglehopper” tattoo on her back in honor of her favorite movie The Little Mermaid. In the film, Ariel is obsessed with human culture. She finds a fork and since she doesn’t know what it really is, she calls it a “dinglehopper” and uses it to brush her hair.

This tattoo was added next to the existing quotes on Scout’s back from artist Joshua Greener at the Spooky Empire Tattoo Festival in Orlando, FL in April 2017. Of course she went to Walt Disney World while she was in Orlando!

    Melanie Martinez


    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.

    Kreayshawn


    Inside her right elbow, Kreayshawn has a hamburger with Mickey Mouse inside. The original illustration is by artist Joshua Agerstrand. She says: “It’s Mickey Mouse in a cheeseburger. I like burgers, I like Disney characters, so why not put ’em together? Would you eat a burger with a rat inside? I wouldn’t, but it looks good.” (more…)

    Kreayshawn

    Kreayshawn’s very first tattoo is the ice cream cone on the left side of her neck. She says: “I decided to get my first tattoo while at the tattoo shop when my sister was getting hers. I was like, They are tattooing 15-year-old kids–I’m down! It’s my favorite because it’s so old. It doesn’t look like any of my other tattoos because they are all so bright and vibrant and it’s weathered.” On the opposite side of her neck is a Mickey Mouse glove. She also has writing on the back of her neck, but I can’t decipher what it says.

    Scout Taylor-Compton


    Scout Taylor-Compton has three separate quotes tattooed on her left shoulder blade. She started out with just the top two lines, which are lyrics from the Mumford & Sons song “Awake My Soul.” They say “In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die. Where you invest your love, you invest your life.”

    Next she added the inspirational phrase “anyone who thinks sunshine is pure happiness / has never danced in the rain.”

    The final quotation that she got tattooed is “Darlin’, forever is a long, long time / and time has a way of changin’ things” which comes from the Disney Movie The Fox and the Hound.

    Lily Collins


    Lily Collins revealed a new fairy-tale-inspired tattoo on her left side at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in February 2016.  The dreamy ink shows a little fairy sitting on a crescent moon blowing dandelion seeds into the wind.

    The writing next to ends with the words “fragile thing,” though there may be more text hidden below her clothing.
