1. Lion Face

She has a lion-faced tattoo on her index finger. She said, “I’m a Leo. It’s the first tattoo I got. I grew up being fearless in everything. I used to climb anything. I lost that (sense of fearlessness) when I started modeling. When you work a lot and don’t really know what you want, you just do it because the work is there. I lost that inner fire, so I got the lion to bring that back in my mind.”

2. Her Initials


Talk about self-love, this beauty has “CJD” tattooed on her right wrist which by the way are the initials of her full name, Cara Jocelyn Delevingne.

3. Made in England

This tattoo has a very deep meaning for her as with that tattoo she expresses her feelings on being a model.  “You’re looked through, you’re not looked at, you are treated as a kind of mannequin. I got a tattoo saying Made in England on my foot to represent that I felt like a doll for so long. Because you are just a kind of puppet, you know, entertainment. You kind of feel that you need to have no soul really, to do that job, a little bit.”, she said.

4. Pandora’s Box
