Sierra Kusterbeck has at least 19 known tattoos:
Sierra Kusterbeck has a traditional-style heart and banner tattoo on the inside of her left ankle which says “Older Men.” She explains:
Yea so I never really told you all about this tattoo because it’s an inside joke. Oliver Peck has been trying to give me this tattoo for 2 yrs. He has “younger girls” in a sacred heart on his knee. I was in Dallas on a day off after Warped Tour and I went to my friends place and realized Elm Street Tattoo was a block away. That’s Oliver’s shop. I ran there to say hi and ended up, somehow, finally getting this tattoo. I love it and it always reminds me of Oliver and Monkeybird. Some of the best people I’ve ever met. Plus, I love older men :)
Sierra has “TOUR 09” written vertically on the inside of her left foot, along with some other worn off tattoos. She gave this tattoo to herself while her band VersaEmerge was on the OP Tour with Boys Like Girls, Cobra Starship, The Maine, and A Rocket To The Moon in the fall of 2009.
She added vampire fangs to her “tour” tattoo during the 2010 Warped Tour, at the same time she got the apple core tattoo on her ankle. She described this as her “party ankle.”
Sierra Kusterbeck got this cicada tattoo on her right ankle in May 2015 as a tribute to her home state of Florida and its swamps. Her friend Mitchell has a matching tattoo on the top of his foot. Their tattoos were done by Allen Leper, who had never tattooed a person before, but it looks a lot more professional than most of Sierra’s other DIY tattoos!
Sierra Kusterbeck got this tattoo of an apple core on the back of her right ankle while on Warped Tour 2010. It was an impulsive decision – when asked when she decided to get the tattoo she responded “right now. I’m not the type of person that’s going to go to a shop and make an appointment and go get this tattoo. That’s why I think I’ve gotten all my tattoos on tour, just spur of the moment.” As for it’s meaning, she explained “Everybody’s kind of a rotten apple in a way. No one’s perfect.”
Sierra Kusterbeck’s boyfriend Shane Crump from the band Alesana gave her this homemade tattoo of a crescent moon on her right ankle in January 2013. He used a needle and a bottle of ink for this simple stick-and-poke design. “One of them home tattoo nights,” Sierra wrote.
Foot tattoos wear off quickly due to friction. This tattoo on the inside of Sierra Kusterbeck’s right heel has become illegible.
Sierra Kusterbeck has an arrow on the outside of her right index finger. Her friend Melanie Hawkins aka “monkeybird” has a matching tattoo.
People always ask about the arrow tattooed on my finger. Besides the fact that I like arrows, I’m also a Sagittarius–-everyone in the band is-–and the tattoo always points me in the right direction. [source]
Sierra Kusterbeck got this crossing arrow design behind her left ear in October 2010 from artist Jeffy at Tampa Bay Ink in Dunedin, FL. It was her second arrow tattoo, following the one on her finger. The crossed arrows are a symbol of her band VersaEmerge and have been used on many merchandise designs and tour posters. Some fans of the band have gotten their own versions of this tattoo. The band even sold temporary tattoos with this design.
Sierra Kusterbeck has a fly tattoo on her right shoulder blade.
Sierra Kusterbeck has a band aid tattoo below her left knee which is a reminder to be true to herself.
“I grew up a tom boy and was always very clumsy, my legs are covered in scars and I got it just as reminder to never try to be someone I’m not.”
