Lala Kent got a tattoo with a heart and the word “dad” behind her right upper arm for her dad who passed away.
She got her ink on May 2018 ans she shared the story on her Instagram account with the message:
Back to L.A., with my sweet, beautiful mama, wearing my dad’s watch, and an epic tattoo. Repping my pops till the end of time (by @chichtattoos ♥️) Dad, I promise i’m going to make you proud. I’m going to be kind and tender hearted, just like you.
Eleanor Calder and her boyfriend Louis Tomlinson got tattoos on their fingers in honour of their love. Eleanor got an ‘L’ tattoo on her ringer and Louis got a simple capital letter ‘E’ on the back of his hand, a place he couldn’t unsee even if he wanted to.
Fans are split over what this tiny writing on Ariana Grande’s ring finger says. At first glance it looks like “pete,” which would be an obvious choice seeing as she and fiance Pete Davidson have gotten many tattoos dedicated to each other and it’s on the same finger as her engagement ring.
But upon closer inspection, there’s no stem on the letter “p” and an extra up-swipe before the “e.” That’s why others are convinced that it says “arte” which is the Italian word for “art.” Ariana has drawn heavily from classic Italian art for the visual accompaniments to her single “God is a woman.” The music video reinterprets the Capitoline Wolf sculpture as well as Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam while her VMA performance of the song was based on Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper. She is ethnically Italian and one of her earliest tattoos was of another Italian word “bellisima” on her side.
We initially thought the tattoo said “pete” but after staring at it for way too long, we’re team “arte.” Unless perhaps it’s an ambigram meant to show both words at once, implying that Pete is art?
Either way it matches the location of one of Pete’s finger tattoos — and we have no idea what his says. His ring finger ink pre-dates hers, which she got in July 2018.
Ariana Grande has a tattoo of a bee behind her left ear as a tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack at her concert in Manchester. The worker bee is a historical symbol of the city of Manchester. Grande has made many tributes to help the victims and their families, including her ‘One Love Manchester’ tribute concert, which has helped raise 2.6 million dollars for survivors and their families. Grande has also offered to pay for funerals, hospital bills, and dropped a new single in honor of the victims. Grande’s whole crew have bee tattoos as well. We Love Manchester Emergency Fund has now raised a total of 12 million, thanks to Ariana Grande. Ariana posted a letter on Instagram, including the line “Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, sing louder, and to live more kindly generously than we did before.” Ariana is truly doing that.
Ariana Grande has a tattoo of the word “always” on left side of her rib cage. The inking was revealed in the music video for “Bed” with Nicki Minaj in June 2018. It’s another token of her whirlwind relationship with fiance Pete Davidson and it appears to be written in his handwriting. Fans have compared it to a letter that he wrote to show that it’s a match.
Her choice of the word “always” is presumably a reference to the Harry Potter series. Both Ariana and Pete are huge fans and they’ve got other Harry Potter tattoos as well. He has the Deathly Hallows symbol on his arm, a lightning bolt on his wrist, and a long quote in the Harry Potter font. Ariana’s an even bigger fan and he’s mocked her encyclopedic knowledge of every minor detail in the books.
Lea Michele has two lines of text on the right side of her rib cage reading “I love you more” and “if you say so” as a reminder of the last conversation that she ever had with her fiance Cory Monteith before he died of a drug overdose on July 13, 2013.
“I love you more” is the last thing that she ever said to him and she’s thankful to have ended things on such a positive note, telling Seventeen “I spoke to a woman who had lost her son, and she mentioned how grateful she was that the words she said to her son before he died were ‘I love you.’ Mine were as well.”
The last words that her said to her were “if you say so” in response to her. She wrote a song called “If You Say So” about his passing which contains the lyrics “And I can’t get the last words that you said / Can’t get those words out of my head” and “You said, I love you girl / I said, I love you more / Then a breath, a pause, you said / If you say so.”
