SINGER Ariana Grande has roughly 55 tattoos, not including the ones she’s covered up.
The singer started getting tattoos in 2012, when she was 16 years old, and she hasn’t looked back.
What are some of her most popular tattoos?
Grande’s most meaningful tattoo might be the one behind her ear. In a tribute to the 22 people who lost their lives at the terrorist attack at her Dangerous Woman concert in May 2017, Grande had the bee tattooed as a constant reminder.
The bee is a symbol of Manchester, representing the Manchester Arena, where the terrorist attack took place.
In solidarity, the BBC reported that thousands of people followed suit and had the bee, representing both hard work and working together, tattooed on their body.
Did Ariana Grande remove any sentimental tattoos?
Grande’s short-lived whirlwind romance with Pete Davidson resulted in a combined total of nine tattoos they had gotten together.
However, when the pair broke it off in 2018, they both took steps to replace and scrub the reminders from their body.
They both had the French phrase Mille Tendresse, meaning a thousand tenderness’s coming from the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Grande covered up her reborn tattoo they had gotten together, replacing it with the image of a vine. She also turned her Pete tattoo into a black heart.
However, the number 8418 was tattooed on her foot for Davidson’s father who passed away during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The tattoo was his late father, Scott Davidson’s, firefighter badge number.
When Grande and Davidson broke off their engagement in October 2018, she covered the tattoo with one that paid tribute to her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller’s dog, Myron.
Has Ariana Grande had any tattoos removed?
There was speculation in May 2021 that Grande had her arm tattoos removed. The popstar was first seen in her wedding photos with her arms devoid of the tattoos that fans gush over on social media.
At the time, fans took to Twitter questioning why she would cover up her tattoos. Fans opinions changed when Grande sang at the iHeartRadio Awards ceremony in June.
They expressed their confusion on social media when they saw her bare arms. Fans no longer thought she covered them up, but rather, removed them.
“@ArianaGrande we’re all freaking out about your “missing” butterfly tattoos. can you pls come online and set us straight,” one person said on Twitter.
Another person was visibly upset at the supposed revelation and posted, “Okay literally why isn’t anyone talking about Ariana Grande’s missing arm tattoos?!? Like were they fake or what?!? Cause I know she had h***a butterflies on there and anime characters, but they are nowhere to be found!!”
However, when Grande appeared on season 21 of The Voice which aired on September 20, 2021, her arm tattoos had returned.
