Stick-and-Poke Tattoos

Noah Cyrus

Noah Cyrus has a tiny “X” tattoo on her left elbow. Many people assumed that it was a tribute to deceased rapper XXXTentacion, who she collaborated with on her song “Again,” however she actually had this tattoo a month before his death.

It’s a matching tattoo that she shares with her boyfriend Tanner Drayton, though we aren’t sure why they chose the “X” design.  Noah’s favorite tattoo artist Lauren Winzer inked the couple in May 2018.  Rather than using her tattoo gun, she hand-poked them with a needle and ink.


Nia Lovelis

Nia Lovelis gave herself this stick-and-poke “X” tattoo on her hand when she was 17 years old.  Technically it’s her first inking, but she doesn’t count it as a real tattoo. “I don’t consider the “x” an actual tattoo,” she tweeted. “I don’t even remember that it’s there 90% of the time.” (more…)

Hayley Williams

Hayley Williams got the letters “AL” tattooed on the back of her left wrist in honor of her band Paramore’s fifth studio album After Laughter. She got the tattoo a few days after the album’s May 12, 2017 release date. Fans got their first look at the new tattoo during Paramore’s debut television performance of the album’s lead single “Hard Times” at Jimmy Kimmel Live on May 17, 2017.

All three members of Paramore have the “AL” tattoo.  Guitarist Taylor York placed his above a cluster of tattoos which he has on the inside of his upper right arm.  Drummer Zac Farro, who is the least tatted member of the band, put his in a discreet location on his upper thigh.
