Sister Tattoos

Anastasia Karanikolaou


Anastasia Karanikolaou has a tattoo on her right forearm with a heart and a date in Roman Numerals. The tattoo says “♡ II – IV – XCVI” which is “2 – 4 – 96” for the birthday or her sister Alexia Karanikolaou on February 4, 1996.

She got this tattoo along with her friends Kylie Jenner and Justine Skye, who each got their own heart tattoos at the same time. They all opted for different designs in different places.

Andrea Russett


The letters “MJAA” on Andrea Russett’s left hand represent the names of her family members: M for her father Mark, J for her mother Jacqui, A for her sister Anna, and another A for her brother Anthony.

“For the family,” She wrote on her instagram. “Every time I look at these I think of my parents and siblings and it makes me smile. The tattoos I get will always be for me. I don’t care if no one understands them or they don’t make sense to anyone else. Been a good day.”

Katya Elise Henry


Katy Elise Henry has a long roman numeral tattoo along her left forearm which says “LXVLXVIIILXXXVIIIXCIV”.  Though all of the digits are strung together on her tattoo, it represents four different numbers: “LXV” for 65, “LXVIII” for 68, “LXXXVIII” for 88, and “XCIV” for 94. We believe that this tattoo represents the birth years of her family members, with 65 and 68 for her parents Tawnya Nelson and Derick Henry, 88 for her older sister jewelry designer Tanaya Henry who was born in 1988, and 94 for her younger sister Gabrielle Henry.  However Tanaya’s is the only birth year that we can verify.

Florence Welch


Florence Welch has a tattoo on her left middle finger of her younger sister’s name “Grace” and a heart.  Artist Minka Sicklinger gave her the tattoo in July 2013.

On August 8, 2016 — which was Florence’s 30th birthday — her sister Grace gave birth to a daughter. Florence shared a picture of her “Grace” tattoo on instagram and wrote “Congratulations to my beautiful little sister, @gracie_welch_ and@danielclove Bonnie Harriet Sybil Willis 28.08.16. Welcome to the world, I am honoured to share a birthday with you ..”
