Ariana Grande has 25 known tattoos. She also has 2 confirmed but unknown tattoos that she got sometime in 2015/2016.[1] She got her first inking in 2012 when she was 18.

Tattooed Heart Edit


This is Ariana’s first tattoo, which she got in 2012 at the age of 18. It is a tattoo on the second toe of her right foot, and shows the bold outlining of a heart. Ariana says she got this tattoo while working on her debut album Yours Truly, and is also inspired by the song “Tattooed Heart” (which was one of her favourite songs from the album).

Mille Tendresse Edit

Ariana Second Tattoo

Ariana’s second tattoo was writing on the back of her neck. It was done on March 14, 2014 and reads the words ‘Mille Tendresse’. This is a line from the movie Breakfast At Tiffany’s, which is one of Ariana’s favourite movies and stars her idol, Audrey Hepburn.

Bellissima Edit

Ariana Third Tattoo

’Bellissima’ is something that Frank Grande, Ariana’s grandpa, used to call her. It is tattooed on her left side near her chest. Ariana also got this tattoo on the same day some of her friends got their first, which she claims was a real “bonding experience”. It means "really beautiful"\"a really beautiful girl" in Italian.

Crescent Moon Edit


Ariana announced that she had gotten a fourth tattoo on April 14, 2015. The tattoo is the outline of a crescent moon below her left ear. Her backup dancer and close friend Brian also got the same tattoo. It refers to the song “Moonlight”, off her third album Dangerous Woman. It could also be a reference to her Snapchat account since her current name is ’moonlight bae’.

Honeymoon Edit


On April 16, 2015, (at Ariana's meet and greet in Vancouver, Canada during The Honeymoon Tour) it was shown that Ariana had gotten two new small tattoos on her (right) fingers.[2] It is a reference to her Honeymoon Tour and one of her personal favourite songs she’s ever recorded, “Honeymoon Avenue”. She said the song means so much to her because it’s a personal song and the events that occur in the song have happened to her in real life in a Q&A with Billboard in 2013.

אלד Edit


The other tattoo (that she probably got at the same time as the honeymoon one) is a small Hebrew phrase on the side of her right ring finger. It is the tenth name in the 72 names of God which is spelled with the Hebrew letters aleph, lamed, and daled. The name "protects from the evil eye and bad dreams, and helps the rebirthing process." This tattoo is a reference to Ariana's faith which is Kabbalah.

Ariana's brother Frankie Grande also got a similar tattoo.[3]

Second Tattooed Heart Edit


At Ariana's show in Paris during The Honeymoon Tour on May 14, 2015, it was shown that Ariana had gotten another tattoo. It is a small outline of a heart (like her first tattoo) on her right ring finger.

Babydoll Edit
