Neon Hitch has a variety of tattoos all over the back of her right hand, including a variety of symbols on her fingers. The tattoos use a watered-down in for a henna-like appearance.

On her pointer finger is an Egyptian pyramid.

Neon Hitch has a tattoo of an anarchy symbol on her right leg, just above the knee. It is a tribute to her debut full-length album called Anarchy as well as her anarchist attitude and free spirit. In her song “Anarchy” she sings “I don’t play by the rules I’m an anarchist…Anarchy made me, understand me. You don’t understand me…Welcome to me and my anarchy.”
Neon Hitch got a tattoo of the iconic Cola-Cola logo on the left side of chest in June 2016 at Through Your Skin Tattoo in Los Angeles, CA.
Neon Hitch has a tattoo of the bus and trailer that her family lived in when she was a child. The same image was used on the cover of “Happy Neon” mixtape. It’s on her right forearm next to her “Trailer Trash” tattoo. Artist Ron Cohen did the tattoo in June 2014.
Neon Hitch has a tattoo on the inside of her right forearm in memory of her friend Shane Dugas who died of cancer at the age of 30. She got the tattoo in April 2014 only days after his passing. It’s a black and white bumblebee with a human head smoking a cigarette. On the wings are his initials “SMD.”
She writes “My new tattoo for my bruva Shane who just passed.. And amy as his guardian angel. Healing process.” This is her second tattoo of Amy Winehouse’s name.
Neon Hitch has “Gypsy” tattooed on her wrist as a symbol of pride in her Romani heritage. Though gypsies are often looked upon with hatred, Neon is proud of her culture and says “I’m trying to stand up for my community and prove we’re not all bad.”
Neon has added onto the tattoo multiple times. It started out with just the word “Gypsy.” Then she added shapes in red-brown ink including an Eye of Horus which is an Egyptian symbol of protection. In October 2012 she had the symbols drawn over in black ink and altered some of the shapes, transforming the circle and square into spirals. She also added an outline around the whole tattoo at this time. The most recent addition was in September 2013, at the same that she got the swirl tattoo on her hand. She put a row of tiny swirls above the Gypsy tattoo to tie together both inkings.
On the back of her right arm, Neon Hitch has a tattoo of her sister’s name “Pema.” It’s done in a very stylized way with three lines for the “E” and a triangle for the “A”.
Neon Hitch is a songwriter as well as a singer and she co-wrote Ke$ha’s hit song “Blah Blah Blah.” Neon got this tattoo on a night of partying with Ke$ha after they completed the song. Ke$ha got a dollar sign on her hand at the same time. Neon explains:
“The song came about really quickly, and then to celebrate we both took the subway to Harlem and got tattoos. I tattooed my sister’s name ‘Pema’ because I love her so much. [My sister] got my name tattooed on her too.”
