Awesome Tattoos of Musicians (Part Two)


Continuing our look at the ink on famous musicians, it’s time to turn to the ladies. Just like their male counterparts, there are literally hundreds of female musicians who use their tattoos to express their individuality and make a statement, such as:


A woman so sexy and talented, she needs only one name; Rihanna is one of the best-selling artists of all time with over 150 million records sold. She’s also officially a Fashion Icon, having received the title earlier this year from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Apparently, that’s a thing. In Rihanna’s case, she hasn’t gone for any huge statement pieces; instead she has adorned herself with a number of small tattoos – 21 that we know of. Her first tattoo is thought to have been the musical notes on her foot, and her most copied tattoo is probably the “Shhh...” on her right index finger. Let’s not mention the two misspelt tattoos she has though...

Chibi (The Birthday Massacre)

Lead singer of the Canadian gothic/dark wave band The Birthday Massacre, Chibi rocks a number of tattoos. She’s said in interviews that she’s drawn to fictional female characters who she can identify with; she has a Sailor Saturn from the anime Sailor Moon on her left upper arm and Ramona Quimby on her right forearm. Like many tattoo aficionados, every piece of ink she bears has some significance – although not always one that’s easy to explain.

Ana Matronic (Scissor Sisters)

Apparently, there are still some people who say that tattoos on women can’t be glamorous. We dare them to say that to the face of women like Ana Matronic, the female singer with glam band Scissor Sisters. In case her choice of stage name wasn’t a giveaway, her tattoo clearly identifies her affection for robots. The armband was initially inspired by the Bionic Woman, and has been added to over time with tributes to her favourite robots – R2-D2, C-3PO and Maria from Metropolis.
