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!!”

Zoë Kravitz


Zoë Kravitz went to her favorite tattoo artist Dr. Woo on December 27, 2015 to get a new tattoo on the inside of her left forearm. Her tattoo is a palm tree on the beach with delicate leaves in Dr Woo’s signature single-needle style. “Bahamas” is written vertically along the trunk of the tree.

Zoë has multiple ties to the Caribbean island. Her paternal grandmother was from the Bahamas and her father owns a home there. She spent the 2015 Christmas holiday writing and recording new music with her band Lolawolf in the Bahamas and then got this tattoo as soon as she returned home to Los Angeles.

    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.
