Friendship Tattoos

Noah Cyrus


In August 2018, Noah Cyrus got matching lip tattoos with her friend Lucas Machado, who is a model. The chose the word “Reh” which is something that they like to say to each other. It seems to be their version of “rawr.”

The tattoos were an impulsive decision. They were hanging out with another model Caleb Cechota, who had just gotten a scorpion on his arm earlier that day, when they decided to get some ink of their own. “Lucas and I just decided we’re going to get tatted,” Noah said on her instagram story while laughing. “Oh my god, this is my life, all the time — more tattoos!” She had over 20 tattoos already but this was the first for him.

Anne-Marie


Anne-Marie and fellow singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran got matching “Mug” tattoos while on tour together in July 2018. She is an opening act on his ÷ stadium tour, putting her in front of much larger audiences than she’s used to. It’s been helping her to get more comfortable performing and to expose her music to his huge global fanbase.

They’ve been friends for almost 10 years and going on tour together has given them a lot of downtime to hang out. She told Standard:

“I think it’s a little bit different because we’re friends anyway, we make more time for each other just because we’re friends. I think when it comes to the UK tour it was harder for us because we have friends and family coming and we want to make time to see them so we don’t get to see each other much. But when it comes to Europe and America we spend a lot more time together.”

“Mug” is a nickname that they call each other.  She got the tattoo on the back of her left arm in his handwriting, posting on her instagram “1 guess what mug wrote this.”

Ed Sheeran’s “Mug” tattoo is on the inside of his right elbow, just above his Irish flag shamrock.

They were inked by artist Tobias Tietchen at his Hamburg, Germany tattoo studio Atelier Tietchen before their concert in Hamburg on July 25, 2018.

Danielle Bregoli


Danielle Bregoli got a tattoo on the back of her left forearm in August 2018 depicting the face of a cherub statue.

The cross on the forehead of the cherub is a symbol of allegiance to God, inspired by several passages of the Christian Bible. When God wants to destroy the city of Judah in Ezekiel 9:4, God says to put a cross on the forehead of people who are saddened by the abominations committed there so that they will be spared. In Revelation 7:3 the angels put a seal on the foreheads of servants of God.

Statues of Christian figures never include a cross on the forehead, however there are many historical examples of vandalism by early Christians who carved crosses into ancient Greek and Roman statues to “Christianize” them.

Maggie Lindemann


Maggie Lindemann had been planning this fangs tattoo for a long time before getting it done in March 2018.  The vampire-loving singer got some more discrete tattoos like “Bite Me” on her finger and a bat on her ankle first before taking the plunge because she didn’t want to get a large piece while she’s still so young.  But by March 2018 she was finally ready to get the tattoo that she really wanted.  She and her friend Chris Miles got matching tattoos on their forearms of an open mouth showing its teeth and fangs.  Artist Sick Boy used a blackwork technique to create the goth-style design using solid black ink.  Maggie is definitely having a goth moment with her clothing, but she’s sure that the tattoo will be something that stays relevant as she continues to evolve:

“I’ve wanted a vampire tattoo since I was 11.  Wanted this specific tattoo since 2016.  Just because my style changes doesn’t mean who I truly am on the inside or the things I’ve always liked change.”

Noah Cyrus has become close pals with Australian tattoo artist Lauren Winzer, who had given her at least four tattoos prior to this one.  The went exploring a graveyard together and got matching “BFF” (best friends forever) tattoos to commemorate it.  Lauren explains that the design of a tombstone with a dollar sign on was “based off one we saw in a graveyard together.” Lauren couldn’t reach the back of her own arm and had her tattoo done by Heath Nock, an artist who works alongside her at Hunter and Fox Tattoo in Sydney.

“when you & yuh bff get matching grave money tats,” Noah wrote on instagram.

    Noah Cyrus


    We’ve all heard of getting matching tattoos with your boyfriend, but what about your boyfriend’s mom?  Well Noah Cyrus did it.  She has a palm tree on the side of her left hand which she shares with Kasey Drayton, the mother of her beau Tanner Drayton.  She’s got matching ink with Tanner as well.

    The palm tree has worn down considerably since she got it done in August 2017 and it’s hard to see in most pictures.
