“I voted. They didn’t give me a sticker. But here’s my Aslan tattoo. ?Thanks to the brave men and women who thought voting was important enough of to suffer die for. As a an American woman with native ancestry I am honored to have a voice.”
Lucy Hale has cursive writing tattooed below her left breast. It says “Courage, dear heart” which is a line from C.S. Lewis’ book The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in the Chronicles of Narnia series:
“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, “Courage, dear heart,” and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan’s, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.”
Jade Thirlwall has a tattoo along her spine which means “Anyone can achieve their dream if they’ve got the courage.” It’s a tribute her her maternal grandfather, Mohammid Badwi, and she has it written in Arabic because he was Arabic. Jade is quarter-Egyptian and quarter-Yemeni.
“It’s taken three years to get it right, as I’m such a perfectionist,” she told UnrealityTV “Basically, it’s in Arabic, as my Granddad was Arabic, so it’s kind of like a memory of him. It says ‘Anyone can achieve their dream if they’ve got the courage’.”
Halsey has a tattoo on her thigh which says “FEROX” in capital letters. “Ferox is Latin for wild, courageous, spiritable,” she explained in an instagram post. A friend did this homemade tattoo in October 2012. Her previous tattoos were done professionally and this was her first DIY “stick and poke” style inking. “It was given to me with a sewing needle, India ink, and a lot of vodka,” she tweeted.
JoJo has the Serenity Prayer wrapped around her wrist in black and green ink. It reads “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.” (more…)
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.”
