Travel Tattoos

Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale got a tattoo of an elephant on her right arm during a trip to Cambodia in May 2018. She and her Life Sentence co-star Elliot Knight visited the country with the charity organization Ripple Effect and got to visit children with special medical needs in addition to seeing all the beautiful ancient temples. Lucy had some crazy experiences during her trip including eating fried tarantulas that she purchased at a local street market, which she says taste like potato chips. She wrote on her instagram:

Peace out Cambodia. – Every once in a while certain experiences and people open your eyes. Grateful for the remarkable time I had & for the beautiful children we met. Being a very small part of something this extraordinary is something that will stay with me for life & I can’t wait to be back to see the kids next year. And to my new friends- I love you guys!

It doesn’t seem like Lucy got to meet any elephants during her brief trip, though Elliot continued on to Thailand after she left and had his own elephant adventure, but surely she saw lots of elephant carvings in the buildings she visited.  The Asian Elephant is now an endangered species but was prevalent through Cambodia in the past and is a common motif in the country’s art and architecture.

She got the little elephant on her elbow inked at Bayon Tattoo, which is named after the Bayon temple in Angkor Wat and is located only a few miles from the historic site.  This parlor does some of its tattoos with the traditional Cambodian bamboo technique, but Lucy opted to get hers with a modern tattoo gun. She showed pictures of the process and the result on her instagram and captioned it:

Tattoos everywhere I go 🐘

Other members of the tour group got their own matching elephant tattoos on various body parts.

Chiara Ferragni

Chiara Ferragni has a tattoo on the back of her arm which says “VIAJANTE” meaning “traveler.” The jet-setting fashion blogger chose to have the tattoo written in Portuguese because she got it while in Brazil (though viajante also means traveler in Spanish). She visited artist Jorge Machado at Ipanema Ink during a 48-hour stay in Rio de Janeiro in July 2013.  A friend who was with her got the same word on her ribs.

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.
