Nickname Tattoos

Juliet Simms


Juliet Simms got her nickname “JuJu” and a rose tattooed on left the side of her neck by artist Romeo Lacoste in February 2017. She wrote on her instagram:

Thank you so much @romeolacoste for my new tattoos! Officially my new favorite ink! I can’t believe how smooth and pain free it was and the line work you did blows my mind! @andyblack and I had so much fun meeting and chatting with you and I can’t wait to get more beautiful work done by you!

Chiara Ferragni


Chiara Ferragni and her now-husband Fedez got matching tattoos on their hands of a raviolo with a cutesy smiley face (we Americans would call it a ravioli but technically that’s the plural form).  While a pasta dumpling might seem like a strange idea for a tattoo, it’s significant to the couple because Fedez calls Chiara “raviolo” as an affectionate nickname.  Now that they have a baby they call him “raviolino,” meaning little ravioli.

This tattoo was done by Jon Boy in March 2017 and it was the first time in nearly four years that Chiara had been inked by anyone other than her favorite artist Dr Woo.

    Chiara Ferragni


    Chiara Ferragni has a large tattoo on her side that says “LUCE” — the Italian word “light.”  It is a matching tattoo with an ex-boyfriend but she has no regrets about it.  She told Glamour:

    I was with my ex-boyfriend and I decided to get a tattoo on my ribs. It says LUCE (that means light in Italian). This is how he used to call me when we were together. He is my best friend now. He also had a tattoo on the same spot.

    On her website The Blonde Salad, she wrote:

    My second tattoo, from October 2010: the word “Luce” (light) on my ribs, with a thousand meanings and dedicated to a person in particular

    Halsey


    Halsey has a tattoo on her right forearm which says “BRAT” in graffiti-style capital letters. She showed off the brand-new tattoo in a May 2017 instagram photo. In a message with a fan, she explained that she got the tattoo because her mom and dad call her a brat. A brat is a spoiled child and it’s usually an insult, but Halsey sees it as a term of endearment instead.

    Fans have pointed out that the word “brat” means brother/sibling in many languages including Russian, Polish and Serbian but this doesn’t seem to be what Halsey intended.
