1: 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).
2: Breakfast At Tiffany’sEdit
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’ 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”.
4: Moonlight Edit
Ariana announced that she had gotten a fourth tattoo on April 14, 2015. The tattoo is the outline of a moon. Her backup dancer and close friend Brian also got the same tattoo. It refers to the song “Moonlight”, of her third album Dangerous Woman, and her perfume of the same name. It could also be a reference to her Snapchat account since her current name is ’moonlight bae’ and often call her fans ‘moonlight baes’ along with the most common term ’Arianators’.
5: 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 fingers. 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.
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 (although it's not the same).
7: Another Tattooed Heart Edit
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.
10: 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.
11: A Edit
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, even though a lot of people thought she did it for her own name.
On May 22, 2017, Ariana's Dangerous Woman Tour concert in Manchester was attacked by a suicide bomber. Ariana flew back to America a few days later. 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.
