Family Tattoos

Beyoncé


Beyoncé has a tattoo of three little dots on her left ring finger which represent her three children. The color difference is subtle, but the middle dot is in blue ink because it symbolizes she and Jay-Z’s first child Blue Ivy Carter who was born on January 7, 2012. The top and bottom black dots represent their twins Sir and Rumi Carter, who were born on June 13, 2017.

She actually got the tattoo before giving birth, which was a risky move. She and husband Jay-Z were thrilled to have the pregnancy so far along especially since she has miscarried in the past, an experience that she describes as “the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.” But on the positive side, she says that “The pain and trauma from that just makes it mean so much more to get an opportunity to bring life into the world.” And fortunately this time they got not one but two beautiful babies!

After removing the tattoo on her hip, she told People magazine that she wouldn’t get another tattoo unless it was for something permanent like children. This tattoo doesn’t seem like something that she has to worry about regretting — but she might need to add to it if she ever grows her family.

Blac Chyna


Blac Chyna already had a tiny tattoo of her son King’s name, but now that she has two children she decided to get both of their names in large script letters on the sides of her hands. She gave birth to Dream Renée Kardashian, her daughter with ex-fiance Rob Kardashian, on November 10, 2016 and got the tattoos in December 2017 shortly after Dream’s first birthday.

The tattoo serves another purpose as well — Dream’s name sits atop the remains of her ex Future’s name, which she had tattooed back in October 2015. They had only been dating for about a month when she got the regrettable tattoo on a whim. She’s already had laser tattoo removal to lighten the old inking, but it can still be seen faintly underneath the new tattoo.
