Bea Miller has at least 18 known tattoos:
Bea Miller got a tattoo on her right hand with the message “keep your head up high”. The new ink is inspired from a handwriting piece done by her younger twin siblings Elliot and Georgia, the original message being: “be proud of yourself, and keep your head up high”.
“Brought the twins to see my friends at @generation8tattoo so they could watch me get their art and words put on me forevaaaaa because i love them forevaaaaaa (peaches was what they called me when they were younger before they learned how to say beatrice) THANK U @CHONTATTOOS”
Bea Miller and fellow pop singer Kennedi got matching tattoos in March 2018 that say “it only couldve been what it was” with the text wrapping around their elbows. The two girls seem to have come up with this phrase on their own — perhaps it’s a lyric to a future song? It speaks to fate and destiny as well as the pointlessness of dwelling on things in the past that we can’t change.
Tattoo parlor Generation 8 Tattoo shared of a photo of Bea’s completed tattoo next to the paper that used as their template, where we can see that it printed out using a computer handwriting font similar to Daddy’s Hand with no apostrophe and no capital letters for a uniform look.
Bea Miller got this minimalist drawing tattooed on her right bicep in December 2017. With only a few lines, the design gives the impression of a couple hugging. The lover on the left has their arms around the other’s neck while the figure on the right has their arms around the waist.
Bea Miller added this handwritten tattoo between her ghost and maple leaf in December 2017. It says “we are all going” which is a line from the John Green novel Looking for Alaska. She shared a picture of the tattoo on her instagram along with a photo of her copy of the book, showing the context for the quote. The paragraph in the book says:
We are all going, I thought, and it applies to turtles and turtlenecks, Alaska the girl and Alaska the place, because nothing can last, not even the earth itself. The Buddha said that suffering was caused by desire, we’d learned, and that the cessation of desire meant the cessation of suffering. When you stopped wishing things wouldn’t fall apart, you’d stop suffering when they did.
It is about accepting that we cannot change our own mortality and the impermanence of everything and everyone around us.
Bea Miller has a tattoo on the back of her left wrist which says “darling” in honor of singer-songwriter Keaton Henson, who she describes as her “absolute favorite artist in the entire world.” The word “darling” appears in a a few of his songs including in the chorus of “Milk Teeth.”
She got the tattoo in July 2017 not long after seeing him perform live for the first time. After the concert she tweeted “Don’t think any moment in my life will ever top seeing Keaton live, that was the happiest I’ve ever been holy shit I cried so hard.”
