Debby Ryan had this little stick-and-poke alien tattoo for about two years. She first showed off the alien on the inside of her left wrist in January 2015 and then in January 2017 she covered it up with a new design. In response to a question about her tattoo on tumblr, she quoted “If I find in myself a desire which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only explanation must be that I was made for another world.” by author CS Lewis.
She was very much into “out of this world” extraterrestrial vibes at the time that she got the tattoo — but so was her ex-boyfriend. She has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with Twenty One Pilots drummer Josh Dun, who sometimes wears an alien mask on stage. The tattoo is not specifically about him and it seems like they were actually broken up when she got it. But the connection to Josh might explain why she wanted to get rid of the faded inking rather than redo it.
Kreayshawn got a tattoo on the back of her right hand in May 2012. It is a sexy alien girl at the beach smoking weed. This is one of Kreayshawn’s more elaborate tattoos and possibly the most bizarre. We know that Kreayshawn loves weed, but why a green alien taking her top off? And why a palm tree? There is certainly a story to it though, as Kreayshawn wrote on twitter “The tattoo is full of meaning if you think carefully.”
Miley Cyrus had her knuckle tattoos colored in by artist Lauren Winzer on October 14, 2014. She filled the heart on her pinkie with galaxy print, added a new tattoo of an alien head on her ring finger, transformed the triangle on her middle finger into a slice of watermelon, and colored the nazar (“evil eye”) on her ring finger.
Grimes’ left hand has a number of DIY tattoos. She explains their meanings to Prefix Mag: “I did them all myself, I have a Greek meander that is often mistaken for a square wave on my finger (very telling of the times), an alien head because I believe in aliens, an “8” because its my lucky number and a wrist band my friend designed for me that I did in the woods in Minnesota.”
