Sherri DuPree Bemis got a chest tattoo in July 2018 featuring a rose and the words “up all night.” As a mother of three, her kids often keep her up at night. She was inspired by an illustration of a tattooed mom wearing a nursing bra, but rather than getting that design on her she got a tattoo similar to one that the cartoon mother has. She wrote on her instagram:
New Ink by the masterful @jwhitttattooer! (It’s now my favorite tattoo). When I saw @drawingsbynicole’s ‘Up All Night’ art (swipe for it), I totally connected with it and wanted to get a piece inspired by it; As always, @jwhitttattooer was able to interpret it perfectly and create this beautiful design. ?
I feel so blessed to know such talented, and humble people filled with genuine passion and creativity. They make the world a better place.
Iggy Azalea got a tattoo of a blindfolded horse on her right forearm in July 2016. Artist Sean Smith used etching lines to create the illusion of shading. A dark area of the horse’s mane covers her old number “1” tattoo, while the long and flowing mane follows the curves of her existing Venus tattoo. The was the first of a series of tattoos which she got within the span of a few months to convert this arm into a half-sleeve. The Venus tattoo stayed but she eventually covered up her old “Trust Your Struggle” tattoo.
Iggy Azalea developed a love for horseback riding during 2015. One of her new years resolutions was to learn to ride a horse well and that goal turned into a full-blown passion. She bought two horses of her own named Defender and Strictly Business (nicknamed “Bizzy”). 2015 was a hard year for her career-wise and riding helped take her mind off things. She tweeted “Horses saved my life and now I have two and it’s all good. Now I have discovered another passion.”
The blindfold on the tattoo could have a few meanings, including keeping calm in the face of danger and blind trust. The most common reason that owners put a blindfold on a horse is to keep it from becoming frightened.
Angel Haze has a tattoo on her neck with dotted line and the message “cut here”. Her ink is inspired by the charachter Trevor from the video game Grand Theft Auto 5.
Maya Ahmad has a starburst tattoo on her left middle finger.
