Music Tattoos

Asia Argento


Asia Argento tattooed her right hand knuckles with the names of four of her artistic idols:

  • “Joe” is for painter Joe Coleman, who is a friend and collaborator of hers. He has painted portraits of Asia and also acted in her 2000 directorial debut Scarlet Diva.
  • “Syd” is for Syd Barrett, a musician and painter who was one of the founding members of Pink Floyd.
  • “Moz” is for singer/songwriter Morrissey
  • “Bob” is for singer/songwriter Bob Dylan

She got the “Bob” tattoo first in February 2014 and then added the remaining three in April 2014.  All of the names were tattooed by artist Michele Agostini.

The “Syd” tattoo serves double duty as it also represents her friend Sydney Zekley. Syd has a tattoo of Asia’s name along the side of her finger.

Halsey


In November 2015, Halsey got a minimalist portrait tattoo on her left upper arm with the word “EVERYTHING” written below it. It is inspired by Norwegian electronic musician Lido’s 2016 album Everything.

Lido is also a producer as well as a solo artist and he served as the executive producer for Halsey’s debut album Badlands. (more…)

Miley Cyrus


Miley Cyrus and her mother Leticia “Tish” Cyrus went together to get tattoos from artist Dr Woo in April 2016. Tish got an arrow on her arm and Miley got a tribute to Elvis Presley. On her right arm, just below her elbow, are the letters of Elvis’ name in the shape of a heart. It’s shaded so that the letters are dark and the top and bottom and lighter in the center. (more…)
