Nicola Peltz and her brother Will have matching Hebrew tattoos on the left side of their ribs. Her tattoo says “משפחה ערשט” which means “family first” in Yiddish while Will has only the first word “משפּחה” meaning “family.” Yiddish is the historical language of Ashkenazi (Eastern European) Jews and it is written in the Hebrew alphabet. They chose Yiddish for their tattoos because they are Jewish and have Ashkenazi heritage on their father’s side of the family.
This was Nicola’s first tattoo, and their July 2016 session with artist Dr Woo was the first time under the needle for Will as well. His tattoo is much thicker and darker than hers and looks more like traditional Hebrew lettering. Her tattoo is styled with thin handwritten letters for a subtle look.
“No filter it’s the real deal..came bck for the second round of my mural on my back! I should be able to complete the top & the side next visit! Thx @tatubaby I love it & can’t wait to see it finished!! If your in Miami u should check her out!!” – Tameka Cottle said on one of her Instagram posts about her ample back tattoo design.
Becky G has a series of Roman numerals “X·XXVII·MCMXCIX·IV·XVIII·MMI·I·III·MMIII” tattooed on her spine which represent the birthdays of her three siblings. She got the tattoo from artist Dr Woo in July 2018.
Becky G is the oldest of four children and was born on March 2, 1997. She has two little brothers and one little sister.
X·XXVII·MCMXCIX is her brother Frankie‘s birth date October 27, 1999. “You, Alex and Steph mean everything to me. I’m so thankful you were all brought into my life. Being an only child would be HORRIBLE,” she wrote to him on a happy birthday instagram post. “I’m so proud of you. I love you so much brother.”
IV·XVIII·MMI is her brother Alex‘s birth date April 18, 2001. Alex is autistic so their relationship hasn’t always been the easiest, but she is grateful for all of the lessons that she has learned from it. She once wrote about him: “He is so wise beyond his years yet has the most innocent heart. He is one of a kind and truly amazing. I don’t anyone else who is as genuine and honest as him. My little brother was diagnosed with autism when he was very young, he has over come all the obstacles of a child with autism with a smile on his face and lots of hugs to give to us when we would see times were hard for him. He has made life for me and the rest of my family so much brighter. There aren’t enough words to describe how blessed and thankful I am to have this kid in my life. I am lucky to call him my brother.”
I·III·MMIII is her sister Stephanie‘s birth date January 3, 2003. She has written to Stephi: “I love you more than words. Although you’re younger than me I look up to you in many ways. There are countless things that come to mind when I think of you but the top two are how selfless and caring you are sister.”
Anne-Marie has had this tattoo on the left side of her upper back for a few months now. We can’t tell what the whole tattoo says, but the first word seems to be “Family.”
She has a close relationship with her family members and her twitter history is full of sweet messages to them. She calls her father Wayne Nicholson “the best dad in the world,” mother Sue “so special and kind and perfect,” and sister Samantha “the most beautiful, amazing human in the universe.” She tweeted “Also I’m the luckiest human to have the best, most supporting family ever. #homesick“
Lucy Hale and her older sister Maggie got matching tattoos in memory of their late grandmother. The sisters both inked “I love you” on their right forearm in their grandmother’s own handwriting. Lucy showed off the matching tatts on her instagram and wrote:
Nothing says sisterly bonding more than permanently tattooing your body. After years of wanting our grandmothers writing, we did it! Our Grammy was our favorite person & now she’s even more a part of us. Also, my sister is a badass who raises two kids, teaches combat classes AND goes on tattoo runs with her baby sister. Also, ouch. This one hurt.
Lucy’s grandmother is still a major part of her life even after she passed away. She attempted to connect with her grandma on an episode of E!’s Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry and said:
I definitely felt like I was with her today, but then again I always feel close to her…I definitely always feel her presence.
Me and my sister talk about it all the time that we wish she could be here to see what I’ve done. I don’t think many people thought in my family that [my career] would be what it is, but I always think that she did.
This tattoo, which they got in July 2018, is actually the second tattoo that Lucy and her sister got together to honor their grandmother. She already had a sun on her upper back.
