    Kesha eye hand tattoo

    Kesha has an eye tattoo on the palm of her right hand which features prominently in her “Crazy Kids” music video. Its placement is inspired by Middle Eastern hamsa amulets, which are shaped like a hand with an eye in the center. The hamsa is thought to provide protection from the “evil eye” and other evil spirits.

    Asia Argento


    Asia Argento has a large angel tattoo on her abdomen.  This decades-old tattoo was first seen on a magazine cover in 1996.  Due to its age, she had the tattoo redone by her favorite artist Marco Manzo in December 2013. “Angel is coming back with vengeance and proteçao. Getting it tattooed again by @marcomanzotattoo where it belongs since 21 years, tomorrow,” she wrote.

    The angel is a symbol of protection and it sits next to a scar from hernia surgery.  At the bottom of the tattoo is a banner with the word “Proteçao” which means “Protection” in Portuguese.

    Genesis Rodriguez


    The tattoo on Génesis Rodríguez’s is a hamsa, a hand-shaped amulet which is though to protect against the evil eye. Hamsas are common throughout the Middle East but hers has Israeli imagery with a Star of David (Jewish star) and the hebrew word chai (חַי‎) which means “life.” Génesis is not Jewish but was inspired by a trip that she took to Israel to film a TV show.
