1st tattooed heartEdit
Ariana's first tattoo is a heart on her toe, which she got in April 2012 while recording her debut album, Yours Truly. Its purpose is to serve as a reminder of this exciting time in her life. She also has a song called “Tattooed Heart” which inspired her heart tattoo.
Ariana’s second tattoo was writing on the back of her neck. It was done in March 14, 2014, the same day her brother Frankie Grande got a tattoo as well. It was done by artist Romeo Lacoste and reads "Mille Tendresse," which is French for "A Thousand Tendernesses." The saying is used in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Ariana's favorite film.
Her third tattoo is the word "Bellissima" in small letters on her side. It's a nickname that her grandfather, Frank Grande, called her all her life. She got this on March 23, 2014 while having a party at her house. A lot of her friends got their first tattoos that night which Ariana described as "such a bonding experience".
Ariana announced that she had gotten a fourth tattoo on April 14, 2015. It is a small outline of crescent moon on her neck below her left ear. Her backup dancer and friend, Brian Nicholson, also got a matching one. This tattoo is a reference to a song Ariana wrote called "Moonlight" which she said was very special to her. Around the time Ariana got this tattoo, she frequently referred to her fans as "moonlight baes."
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 fingers. One of them was the word "honeymoon" written out in cursive on the side of her right middle finger. This is a reference to Ariana's tour, The Honeymoon Tour and one of her favourite songs she's ever written and recorded, Honeymoon Avenue
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 "dalet lamed aleph." 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 (although it's not the same).
2nd tattooed heartEdit
At Ariana's show in Paris on 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.
Ariana and Ricky Alvarez showed their new tattoos on Ariana's snapchat story (moonlightbae) June 13th, 2015, They both joked about it and you couldn't see the tattoo itself.
On November 22, 2015, at the AMAs you could see she had a tattoo on her toe on her left foot.
On January 14, 2016, Ariana posted a picture on Snapchat which showed she had gotten a tattoo on the inside of her finger which says "BABYDOLL" in capital letters. This is said to be a nickname her Nonna uses for her.
Female/ Venus SymbolEdit
Ariana posted multiple pictures on her Instagram and Snapchat story on August 25, 2016, confirming she had gotten more tattoos, one of them being a small black outline of the female gender symbol on her left middle finger. She got this tattoo with boyfriend Mac Miller.
On the same night as her female symbol tattoo, August 25, 2016, Ariana also got a tattoo of the letter A. Ariana explained on her Instagram and Snapchat that it was in reference to the first initial of longtime best friend, Alexa Luria.
On May 22, 2017, Ariana's Dangerous Woman Tour concert in Manchester was bombed. The One Love Manchester benefit concert took place two weeks later to raise money for the victims who died and were injured in the attack. Ariana and her crew allegedly all got tattoos of bees as a tribute. Ariana also posted a bee emoji on Instagram when she found out she was made an honorary citizen of Manchester.
Ariana has not yet confirmed this tattoo or released pictures of the tattoo.
