Cierra Ramirez appeared at Wango Tango on June 2, 2018 with a never before seen tattoo on her arm. The fresh ink is of the French saying “La Vie en Rose” which means “Life in Pink.” It is an analogy for seeing things optimistically, as through rose-colored glasses. The words are tattooed in thin capital letters on the back of her upper right arm.
In September 2011, Ashley Tisdale went with best friend Vanessa Hudgens to get tattooed by Bang Bang – who’s also inked the likes of Rihanna and Katy Perry. They didn’t opt for matching tattoos, instead Ashley got “jamais seule” tattooed on her foot, which is a French phrase meaning “never alone”, and Vanessa got the “Om” symbol on her hands. Ashley got the tattoo carefully placed so that it shows even when she is wearing heels.
Chantel Jeffries’s collarbone tattoo says “Je t’aime” which is a French phrase meaning “I love you.” She got this tattoo as a memorial for her grandmother. She explained on her Tumblr:
Well it says “i love you” in french. I got it for my grandma, who was french, so she can look down from heaven and see that I love her!
Chantel Jeffries’ hip tattoo says “Noir,” the French word for “black.” It means more than just a color. “Noir: black, dark, dreary, mysterious, raven,” she wrote in an instagram post.
Though perhaps unintentionally, the tattoo also pays homage two of her ethnicities: she is both Black and French (Creole) as well as Native American, Irish, and Italian.
When she got this tattoo in May 2014 she knew what word she wanted but hadn’t decided where to put it on her body. On May 4th she tweeted “Hint: my next tat is French & very descriptive of myself” then on the 9th she wrote “Idk where to get my small one word tattoo on me and @RomeoLacoste is on his way to do it!”
She ended up getting it on the side of her left hip in a vintage-inspired typewriter font.
