Olivia O’Brien tattooed the word “EVENTUALLY” on the back of her wrist in April 2018 as a reminder that everything gets better with time. “This tattoo means so much to me, even tho I decided what I was gonna get literally 10 mins before I got it,” she wrote. “I just immediately knew it was perfect. Now every time I look at it I’m reminded that no matter what, I will be happy eventually.”
“Whatever Dude” is Sia’s own personal interpretation of god and she has his name tattooed in red ink on the back of her right hand.
She has struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol and entered Alcoholics Anonymous, whose 12-step program involves acknowledging a higher power. They don’t specify what form that higher power should take — so Sia created her own. “I trust in something greater than myself. A god called ‘whatever dude’. So I turn everything over to WD, and I feel relief,” she tweeted.
The physical form of Whatever Dude isn’t important to her. She once tweeted that Whatever Dude is a dog, but later told Howard Stern that Whatever Dude is “a queer, surfing Santa that’s a bit like my grandpa” and a feminist. These just seem like joking remarks really, the whole point of Whatever Dude is that he can be whatever. She sees god in everything that’s good and tweeted “god is just a name for light. or puppies. or rainbows. or gay babies.”
Ariana Grande and her ex-boyfriend Ricky Alvarez have matching tattoos that say “hi” on their toes. Ricky was one of her backup dancers and they are thought to have dated from April 2015 to July 2016.
This tattoo was revealed at the American Music Awards on November 22, 2015 but is rarely ever seen since Ariana almost exclusively wears closed-toed shoes.
