Becky G has at least 4 known tattoos:
Becky G has a series of Roman numerals “X·XXVII·MCMXCIX·IV·XVIII·MMI·I·III·MMIII” tattooed on her spine which represent the birthdays of her three siblings. She got the tattoo from artist Dr Woo in July 2018.
Becky G is the oldest of four children and was born on March 2, 1997. She has two little brothers and one little sister.
X·XXVII·MCMXCIX is her brother Frankie‘s birth date October 27, 1999. “You, Alex and Steph mean everything to me. I’m so thankful you were all brought into my life. Being an only child would be HORRIBLE,” she wrote to him on a happy birthday instagram post. “I’m so proud of you. I love you so much brother.”
IV·XVIII·MMI is her brother Alex‘s birth date April 18, 2001. Alex is autistic so their relationship hasn’t always been the easiest, but she is grateful for all of the lessons that she has learned from it. She once wrote about him: “He is so wise beyond his years yet has the most innocent heart. He is one of a kind and truly amazing. I don’t anyone else who is as genuine and honest as him. My little brother was diagnosed with autism when he was very young, he has over come all the obstacles of a child with autism with a smile on his face and lots of hugs to give to us when we would see times were hard for him. He has made life for me and the rest of my family so much brighter. There aren’t enough words to describe how blessed and thankful I am to have this kid in my life. I am lucky to call him my brother.”
I·III·MMIII is her sister Stephanie‘s birth date January 3, 2003. She has written to Stephi: “I love you more than words. Although you’re younger than me I look up to you in many ways. There are countless things that come to mind when I think of you but the top two are how selfless and caring you are sister.”
Becky G has a tattoo on her left wrist which says “Familia” — the Spanish word for family. She comes from a Spanish-speaking Mexican-American family and is very in-touch with her heritage. “Although my Spanish is flawed and I didn’t grow up in Mexico, I take pride in my roots. My family’s history and the fact that all the traditions and morals passed down have shaped me to be who I am today is what it means to be a second-generation-born Mexican-American for me,” she told PopSugar.
She got this tattoo from artist Dr Woo in September 2016 at the same time as the dragonfly on her side. “My tattoos went well. I was not in pain. I felt very relaxed, very calm. And I think it’s because I waited for the right person to do them. It was tattoos that I was very, very sure of and I just felt really right about it,” she said in a Q&A video. She’d been planning both of her tattoos for a long time and tweeted about wanting a cursive “Familia” tattoo back in April 2016.
Becky G got a dragonfly tattoo on the left side of her ribs in September 2016. The delicate but intricate inking shows artist Doctor Woo’s signature style. She loves his work but had a hard time scheduling a session with the in-demand artist. “Just waiting for an opening with the tattoo artist I’ve wanted it from forever,” she tweeted.
The dragonfly represents the spirit of her deceased cousin Ceci, who was six years older than Becky and passed away when Becky was only three. She opened up about her cousin on E!’s Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry, describing how one of the hardest times in her life was when her family lost their house when she was nine. “That’s when I turned to who I consider my guardian angel til this day. I lost her when I was really young. She was around the same age. She was just always with me, still after she passed away. She was with me, I could see her and I could feel her.” She had a framed photograph of cousin Ceci on her nightstand in that house and it’s one of the only things that she kept from that bedroom.
“If you look at the frame it has dragonflies on it, and I’ve always connected her to dragonflies. Just the other day I was on stage and I was about to perform in front of like 50,000 people and there was a dragonfly circling around me. I got very overwhelmed with emotions because I was very — I was at my limit, I was exhausted, I didn’t want to continue. And the dragonfly kind of just changed everything.”
