Travel Tattoos

Jade Thirlwall


Jade Thirlwall got matching heart tattoos with her friends Samantha Donkin, Holly Robinson and Anna Sophie Barras following their September 2016 trip to Ibiza, Spain. All four pals placed the simple outline of a heart on the inside of their left ankle.

Samantha wrote on instagram “Now that our friendship tattoos have healed, we are marked for life with the most amazing memories ever! Ibiza 2016 forever, you girls are my most favourite girls in the world! ❤️ I love you!!”

Kesha


Kesha gave herself this stick-and-poke whale tattoo while on vacation in Mexico in May 2016. “New tattoo? … whale shark blob whatever. I hope my hand doesn’t fall off,” she wrote in an instagram photo. Kesha went swimming with whale sharks on the trip and it was a spiritual experience for her. “When a whale shark decides to be ur best friend and reconnect you to your true self and nature and spirituality and magic and beauty and love and gratitude…..I LOVE THIS WHALE SHARK. I CANT EVEN. #whalesharklife,” she wrote. Now that feeling is commemorated permanently with this tattoo.

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.
