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…)
Halsey has a sheet music tattoo on the back of her left upper arm. The four whole notes aren’t random — they are the identifier of producer Lido. They can be heard as a signature in songs that he has produced, including some of Halsey’s own music.

In April 2016, Paris Jackson got the word “MÖTLEY” tattooed on the inside of her lip for the classic metal band Mötley Crüe. “Most lip tattoos are temporary and y’all have been my favorite since I was 12, so I figured why not,” she tweeted to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.
