Alessia Cara got a band-aid tattoo on the back of her upper left arm in June 2018. The band-aid relates to her new music and seems to be a symbol of this album cycle, as she added a band-aid to her beanie girl logo. The lead single “Growing Pains” from her upcoming sophomore album includes the lyrics “No band-aids for the growing pains.” There may be other references as well–we’ll have to wait and see!

Alessia Cara has a tattoo of a sailboat on her left wrist to represent “smooth sailing.” For her it is a symbol of hidden strength. She told Billboard:
“It’s a paper sailboat. They seem so frail, but when you put them on water they float. It’s a reminder that even though I’m small and seem weak, I’m not.”
Fittingly, the sailboat-tattooed-singer was chosen to record the theme song for Disney’s Moana, a movie about a girl who sets sail on a makeshift boat.
