The very first tattoo Ariana got was in the year 2012 while she was recording her debut album, ‘Yours Truly.’ She got a heart-shaped tattoo on her toe as a reminder of a great time in her life. Some said that this tattoo was inspired by the “Tattooed Heart” song in her album.

Grande honored the city of Manchester, one year after a bombing at her concert that claimed 22 lives and injured many others, by unveiling a bee tattoo as a permanent tribute. The bee has been a significant symbol of the city’s industrious history since the Industrial Revolution, and following the tragic terrorist attack at Manchester Arena, many people got worker bee tattoos as a sign of solidarity.

Due to Grande’s penchant for wearing over-the-knee boots, her “Court” tattoo, a tribute to Courtney Chipolone, is seldom visible. However, on June 7, 2018, Grande disclosed that she had the name “Court,” which is a shortened version of Courtney, tattooed on her knee as a tribute to her close friend, Courtney Chipolone.

During the promotion of her “Thank U, Next” music video, Grande announced that she had covered up the “Pete” tattoo on her left-hand ring finger with a black heart, potentially with an arrow piercing it.

Before unveiling her tattoo inspired by anime, Grande posted a detailed description of the character Chihiro, the protagonist from the film “Spirited Away”.

She has also given credit to her tutor Ayumi, who works at a Japanese language school in Los Angeles.

31. ‘7 Rings’ in Japanese on her Palm

Ariana Grande's Japanese phrase tattoo

Grande unveiled a tattoo reading “七 輪” on her left palm on Instagram, which means “seven” and “hoop,” “circle,” or “rings.” However, fans pointed out that when combined, the two kanji characters translate to “shichirin,” a small charcoal grill. Due to the pain, Grande admitted in a now-deleted tweet that she had left out the necessary characters in between. After receiving backlash for the error, Grande returned to the tattoo parlor of Kane Navasard and added another kanji and a heart to correct the phrase. Despite consulting with her Japanese tutor, the tattoo is still not technically accurate.

36. The Trauman Show Quote on Upper Back

After Grande’s best friend revealed her new “The Truman Show” quote tattoo on her upper back, Grande reposted the image and shared that she got the same quote inked, but “upside down”.

The quote, which is arguably the most famous line from the titular character, reads: “In case I don’t see ya: Good afternoon, good evening, and good night!” Grande is known to be a big fan of Jim Carrey, who played Truman in the 1998 film.

Grande’s peace sign gesture to paparazzi in Los Angeles revealed a previously unseen tattoo located underneath the kanji characters on her left palm, which are meant to spell “7 rings”.

45. ‘Cinderella’ on Finger

Ariana Grande's Cinderella tattoo

In an Instagram story shared by Grande, a faint word is visible on the side of her left index finger. Although the tattoo is hard to decipher, fans speculate that it says “Cinderella” in cursive. If this is true, the ink is likely a tribute to Miller, with whom Grande was in a relationship. Miller’s 2016 album includes a song titled “Cinderella,” which he wrote about Grande. The lyrics include lines such as “You in my dreams, that’s why I sleep all the time / Just to hear you say I love you, just to touch you, just to leave you behind” and “I need it every day, I yell your name, Cinderella / Never gonna find nobody better, all my life.”

46. GWS on Finger

Ariana Grande's GWS tattoo

In June 2020, Grande shared some selfies that showed new ink on the same finger as her heart tattoo. At first, the small addition was hard to read, but fans were able to figure out that it says “GWS,” which stands for “Get Well Soon.” This is the name of the closing track on Grande’s “Sweetener” album. The “Positions” music video later confirmed this.

47. Umbrella Tattoo Near Thumb

It is probable that this is a nod to Grande’s 2018 hit single “No Tears Left to Cry” from the “Sweetener” album era, which prominently featured umbrellas in the music videos and live performances.
