Monica has a tattoo on her left ankle of two hands in prayer. She updated the ink to include “Romelō” and “Rodney III” which are the names of her two sons with rapper Rodney “Rocko” Hill. Like his father, her son Rodney III goes by his nickname Rocko.
Fans are split over what this tiny writing on Ariana Grande’s ring finger says. At first glance it looks like “pete,” which would be an obvious choice seeing as she and fiance Pete Davidson have gotten many tattoos dedicated to each other and it’s on the same finger as her engagement ring.
But upon closer inspection, there’s no stem on the letter “p” and an extra up-swipe before the “e.” That’s why others are convinced that it says “arte” which is the Italian word for “art.” Ariana has drawn heavily from classic Italian art for the visual accompaniments to her single “God is a woman.” The music video reinterprets the Capitoline Wolf sculpture as well as Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam while her VMA performance of the song was based on Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper. She is ethnically Italian and one of her earliest tattoos was of another Italian word “bellisima” on her side.
We initially thought the tattoo said “pete” but after staring at it for way too long, we’re team “arte.” Unless perhaps it’s an ambigram meant to show both words at once, implying that Pete is art?
Either way it matches the location of one of Pete’s finger tattoos — and we have no idea what his says. His ring finger ink pre-dates hers, which she got in July 2018.
Sia had her ex-husband Erik Anders Lang’s first name tattooed on the undersides of her fingers. Each letter of “ERIK” is on a different finger in a different color ink. He had a matching tattoo saying “SIA” in the same spot.
They were married from 2014 to 2016 but unfortunately they are no longer together, telling People: “After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple. We are, however, dedicated to remaining friends. There will be no further comment.” Sia keeps her personal life private and hasn’t said much about the marriage or the divorce.
Lea Michele has “Finn” inked in small font on her left butt cheek. Finn is the character that her fiancee Cory Monteith, who is deceased, played on the TV show Glee.
On the show, Lea’s character Rachel and her friend Kurt decide to get tattoos in honor of Finn, in hopes that this would help them heal. Kurt decides to get “it gets better” inked, while Rachel claimed she backed out. Later in the episode, she lifts up her shirt to reveal her lover’s name in a delicate font tattooed on her side.
Many people didn’t see Lea Michele’s real-life “Finn” tattoo until her nearly-naked cover of Women’s Health magazine’s September 2016 issue; but she actually had this tattoo inked in 2011, before her late love passed.
