Pet Tattoos

Sia Furler

Sia has crudely-drawn dogs tattooed all over her left forearm in all colors of the rainbow. Some were drawn by her best friend Dallas Clayton who is a children’s book illustrator, and others were created by her fans. She began working on her “dogpark sleeve” in April 2011 and asked fans for their help. “Please draw and upload an outline of a dog so that I may tattoo it on my arm. I’m starting a dog park. Probs the shittest will make the cut,” she tweeted. “This whole dog outline for tattoos thing is blowing my mind! can’t wait to get them all!!!” Piece by piece, she been filling in the whole forearm with goofy looking dogs.

Child dancer Maddie Ziegler, who gets Sia’s tattoos drawn on her arms when performing with the singer, told Vulture “pretty much her whole arm is filled with kids’ drawings of dogs. And she really likes dogs and kids and stuff.”

Sia is a huge fan of dogs and has three of her own: Lick-Lick (or Licky), Pantera, and Cereal. She is also a vegan and an animal rights activist. She has partnered with several organizations, including ASPCA and PETA, and worked with local rescues to set up dog adoption fairs at her concerts.

Erika Costell

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.

Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea got a tattoo of a blindfolded horse on her right forearm in July 2016.  Artist Sean Smith used etching lines to create the illusion of shading.  A dark area of the horse’s mane covers her old number “1” tattoo, while the long and flowing mane follows the curves of her existing Venus tattoo.  The was the first of a series of tattoos which she got within the span of a few months to convert this arm into a half-sleeve.  The Venus tattoo stayed but she eventually covered up her old “Trust Your Struggle” tattoo.

Iggy Azalea developed a love for horseback riding during 2015.  One of her new years resolutions was to learn to ride a horse well and that goal turned into a full-blown passion.  She bought two horses of her own named Defender and Strictly Business (nicknamed “Bizzy”).  2015 was a hard year for her career-wise and riding helped take her mind off things.  She tweeted “Horses saved my life and now I have two and it’s all good. Now I have discovered another passion.”

The blindfold on the tattoo could have a few meanings, including keeping calm in the face of danger and blind trust.  The most common reason that owners put a blindfold on a horse is to keep it from becoming frightened.

Noah Cyrus

Noah Cyrus got the name “Constantine” tattooed on the back of her wrist in March 2018 in memory of her horse Constantine who died two years prior.  She tweeted a picture of herself riding the horse and wrote:

My best friend named Constantine who passed away 7.5.16 I’ll #AlwaysBeOnYourTeam buddy

Horseback riding is one of Noah’s favorite hobbies, and it’s something that makes her feel like her most authentic self.  She rode competitively when she was younger and dreamed of making a career out of it until she decided at 14 years old that she wanted to be a singer.  She told Access:

I love riding horses.  I still ride horses.  I just got a new horse actually a couple weeks ago because I missed riding horses so much that I needed it.  I’m gone so much that I felt that I was losing who I really was in a weird way.  And that’s who I am.  I grew up on a farm.  I love animals.  I love going home and being able to be a tomboy.  I have to dress up and put on this makeup every day, and I want to go get dirty in a barn and be a tomboy for a while.

Madison Beer

Madison Beer’s first tattoo was of the word “Honey” on the inside of her lip. She got this tattoo back in March 2017 and has mentioned it a few times, but it was over a year before anyone actually saw it. Fans finally got their first glimpse of secret tattoo in June 2018 when her “Home With You” music video was released. The video includes a brief closeup shot of Madison’s inner lip.

Honey is the name of one of Madison’s pet dogs, who she declared as the “love of my life” in an instagram caption. She had another dog named Boo Boo first and chose Honey’s name as a reference to reality TV star Honey Boo Boo.

Madison is known to be a huge dog lover.  A search through her twitter brings up statements like “hello I love dogs goodbye,” “can’t wait to get older so i can live with 500 dogs,” and “what did humans do to deserve such a gift like dogs.”

In March 2017 she accompanied Jack Johnson’s girlfriend Claudia Tihan as she got her own “honey” lip tattoo from the same artist Rafael Valdez.  So it’s somewhat of a matching tattoo, but it seems like Madison had hers first.

Check out more pictures of the tattoo and some pictures of Madison with her dog Honey below:

Zoey Deutch

Zoey Deutch had has a highly detailed portrait of her dog Maybelle on her right calf which was inked by Dr. Woo.  On The Late Late Show with James Corden she joked about what this tattoo implies about her: “Can ask an honest question? Is it ‘awww’? Or is it truly psycho that I got a portrait of my dog on a very exposed part of my body?”

She already had her beloved pet’s name on her ankle and says “I have ‘Maybelle’ tattooed on the other side of my ankle, so just in case I forget what she looks like or what her name is, I just look right down at my foot. And I know exactly what my dog is and what her name is, so that’s the good thing.”
