Asia Argento has a large angel tattoo on her abdomen. This decades-old tattoo was first seen on a magazine cover in 1996. Due to its age, she had the tattoo redone by her favorite artist Marco Manzo in December 2013. “Angel is coming back with vengeance and proteçao. Getting it tattooed again by @marcomanzotattoo where it belongs since 21 years, tomorrow,” she wrote.
The angel is a symbol of protection and it sits next to a scar from hernia surgery. At the bottom of the tattoo is a banner with the word “Proteçao” which means “Protection” in Portuguese.
Janeane Garofalo’s right arm tattoo is inspired by the World War II poster character Rosie the Riveter. “Instead of the government slogan ‘We Can Do It’ underneath, I put ‘Valor,’ from the phrase ‘A woman of valor, who can find? For her price is far above rubies,'” she told Inked. “Meaning it’s very difficult to find a courageous person-man, woman, or otherwise. It’s very valuable to be courageous, so I put it on my arm to remind me. I also didn’t want a government slogan from the World War II era on my arm.”
