Skylar Gray has a large tattoo on her right thigh based on art nouveau illustrator Aubrey Beardsley’s 1893 drawing “The Peacock Skirt.” The original illustration (pictured below) is cut off with a hard line at the bottom, so tattoo artist Joshua Lord added his own creative flair to the design by changing the outline into a beautiful mermaid tail shape.
The tattoo celebrates Skylar’s involvement in the Suicide Squad movie soundtrack. She contributed two songs: “Wreak Havoc” which she performed herself and Kehlani’s “Gangsta” which she co-wrote. Fellow songwriter Jacob Luttrell drew something on her thigh on the night when they began writing “Gangsta” together. The doodle was either a butterfly or a fish — neither of them can quite remember — but this piece of art evokes the feeling of both.
