Jana Kramer has an “11:11” tattoo on the inside of her right wrist to represent 11:11 wishes. She had it done some time in 2012 and revealed in on her instagram on November 11th. “Happy 11:11 everyone! MUAH! #dreambig” she wrote.
Three months earlier she posted a picture of 11:11 written in marker on the same spot and asked her followers whether she should get it tattooed: “I’ve been writing this on my wrist for awhile…should I make it permanent?! #makeawish.”
Demi Lovato’s rib cage tattoo saw it’s third incarnation in September 2016, courtesy of artist Bang Bang. With each update the tattoo has grown larger and now the huge piece covers her whole side.
The tattoo began with the lyrics “you make me beautiful” from the Bethany Dillon song “Beautiful.” This was Demi’s very first tattoo which she got when she was only sixteen. The tattoo has religious meaning to Demi, reminding her that she can find confidence in knowing that God has made her perfect. A few years later, in 2011, she added a pair of feathers behind the writing.
For the latest update, Bang Bang drew a dream catcher around the lyrics, using the previous pair of feathers as part of the dreamcatcher while also adding three more smaller feathers floating at the bottom and some strands of beads. None of the beads or feathers are attached to each other, giving the design a light and ephemeral feeling.
Jade Thirlwall has a tattoo along her spine which means “Anyone can achieve their dream if they’ve got the courage.” It’s a tribute her her maternal grandfather, Mohammid Badwi, and she has it written in Arabic because he was Arabic. Jade is quarter-Egyptian and quarter-Yemeni.
“It’s taken three years to get it right, as I’m such a perfectionist,” she told UnrealityTV “Basically, it’s in Arabic, as my Granddad was Arabic, so it’s kind of like a memory of him. It says ‘Anyone can achieve their dream if they’ve got the courage’.”
Lights has a tattoo on her right hand which says “awake and dreaming” in cursive letters. She got it done in April 2016 at the same time as her Midnight Machines panther tattoo, both by artist Derek Lewis. In a November 2015 tweet, she wrote “Most of my dreaming is done lying awake.”
