Sia had her ex-husband Erik Anders Lang’s first name tattooed on the undersides of her fingers. Each letter of “ERIK” is on a different finger in a different color ink. He had a matching tattoo saying “SIA” in the same spot.
They were married from 2014 to 2016 but unfortunately they are no longer together, telling People: “After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple. We are, however, dedicated to remaining friends. There will be no further comment.” Sia keeps her personal life private and hasn’t said much about the marriage or the divorce.
Erika Costell and her boyfriend/husband Jake Paul got matching “GOAT” tattoos in January 2018. The YouTube power couple known as “Jerika” both got the word written in capital letters that are stacked vertically. She placed her tiny inking on her left forearm while he incorporated his much larger “GOAT” tattoo into a growing collection of intersecting words on his left thigh. They joked that Erika is a goat, as in the animal, while Jake is the GOAT, an acronym for Greatest Of All Time.
Goats are Erika’s favorite animal and have been since she was a child. She previously had the word “goat” tattooed inside her lip, though lip tattoos are known to wear off so it might be very faded by now. She explained that her goat obsession all dates back to one special pet:
Why am I obsessed with goats? When I was 12 years old or so I had a pet goat. I loved this goat so much. His name was Twinklebuddy. I also had a couple other weird animals with weird names, but Twinklebuddy was my favorite and he actually died unexpectedly. I’ve been obsessed with goats my entire life. I don’t know where it came from — well I know it came from Twinklebuddy but it’s stayed with me all the way til right now. So that’s the reasoning behind everything goat. It also means Greatest Of All Time.
Faith Evans got a new tattoo in July 2018 following her wedding to fellow R&B singer and producer Steven Aaron Jordan aka Stevie J. The couple were wed in their Las Vegas hotel room on July 17, 2018 and they wasted no time getting the relationship sealed on their skin, showing off their matching tattoos on instagram only a week later.
Both Faith and Stevie got their wedding date in Roman numerals on the tops of their shoulders — VII•XVII•MMXVIII for July 17, 2018. Stevie also tattooed her initials in front of his ear — FRJ for her new married name Faith Renée Jordan.
Although the marriage was an impulsive decision, it’s been decades in the making. Their professional relationship dates back to the mid-90’s, when Faith was signed to Bad Boy Records and Stevie J was one of the label’s in-house producers. “We’ve loved each other for years, been great friends for years, and obviously developed a romantic connection,” she told Acton Entertainment.
They also collaborated on a new song called “A Minute” complete with a steamy music video that was coincidentally released shortly after the wedding. “We had already had the dates that we were going to put the song out before we decided to go and elope to Vegas and get married….So it’s actually good timing now, but it wasn’t really planned that way. The single was gonna come out regardless.”
Chiara Ferragni and her now-husband Fedez got matching tattoos on their hands of a raviolo with a cutesy smiley face (we Americans would call it a ravioli but technically that’s the plural form). While a pasta dumpling might seem like a strange idea for a tattoo, it’s significant to the couple because Fedez calls Chiara “raviolo” as an affectionate nickname. Now that they have a baby they call him “raviolino,” meaning little ravioli.
This tattoo was done by Jon Boy in March 2017 and it was the first time in nearly four years that Chiara had been inked by anyone other than her favorite artist Dr Woo.
