The latest to embrace the neck tattoo trend is Joe Jonas. His tattoo has the design of a keyhole with a woman’s eye looking through and it has left fans feeling that it is inspired by his wife Sophie Turner. The tattoo could also be inspired by the Italian artist Piero Fornasetti, who has already made such keyhole images. Will Sophie get one?
Last September, pop star Justin Bieber unveiled his new neck tattoo on his Instagram account. A stenciled tattoo of a long rose on the right side of her neck, created by Los Angeles tattoo artist Dr Woo. The inking joins the other neck tattoo of the 26-year-old which bears the word ‘patience’ and is located on the side of his neck. Bieber already has a long list of other tattoos – estimated to number over 40.
Model Hailey Bieber, married to Justin Bieber, also just got a new tattoo in tribute to her husband. It’s the Portuguese word “beleza”, which means beauty in a delicate font, on her neck as well as a “J” and a star on her ring finger. The photos were shared by @ mr.k_tattoo / Instagram. The two recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary. Hailey also has a vertical style ‘seek’ tattoo on the nape of her neck in cursive script and a tattoo that says ‘lover’.
In September, Demi Lovato also showed off her new tattoo – an intricate design of a black butterfly under her left ear. She posted it on her Instagram in a selfie. The ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ singer was apparently writing a new song called ‘Butterfly’ in August and it could be some inspiration. This marks her third neck tattoo – the other two are the word “ survivor ” in swirling font and a winged female figure in a loose sheet-like blanket and carried by three white doves.
Rihanna has quite a few tattoos – one of the most prominent being the design of a trail of shaded stars in different sizes running from her neck to the upper back. The singer and beauty mogul also has a tattoo with the text ‘rebel flower’ written in script style font on the left side of her neck. It joins the simple cross tattoo on his left collarbone.
Singer Selena Gomez’s new tattoo is a tribute to her album – Rare. A small drawing, it is placed on her neck, just under her right ear. She showed it earlier this year on her Instagram video and captioned: “I did it again @bangbangnyc 🦋 rare”. Another tattoo on her neck is a Roman numeral ‘LXXVI’ which would be a tribute to her mother as it is number 76 and her mother Amanda Teefey was born in 1976. She also has a lowercase letter ‘g’ on her neck , in honor of his younger sister Gracie.
Miley Cyrus is another queen of tattoos. From small designs to scriptures, she has several, including a drawing of her dog, Emu and her famous neck – the numbers “92” that would represent her year of birth. She also has ‘Katz’ on the back of her arm for her best friend Katy Weaver.
Ariana Grande also has a growing tattoo collection including some subtle neck tattoos. One of them is a small crescent moon located just below his ear and appeared before the release of his third album. It also has the French words “Mille Tendresse” on the neck which are translated as “mille tendresses”. It is a replica of the 1961 hit “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”.
