122 Celebrities with Single Needle Tattoos

Tattoos with bold, big statements are not for everyone, but they serve a purpose for some. It may be a good idea for you to consider the single needle tattoo technique if you are thinking about getting a meaningful tattoo, but are worried it will fade, or you are worried about how prominent it will stand out on your body.

The single needle technique lies right in the middle of the bold statement and barely-there look. This tattoo artist uses a single needle instead of a more mainstream multi-needle machine. In the end, this method results in very fine lines that bring out an intricate and illustrator-like piece of artwork.

Minimalists will love this trend as it is simultaneously simple and stylish. The trend is sophisticated and creative at the same time.  Even though fewer needles are used, the process is still painful; it will just be different in terms of how much they hurt. As a result, even more, pain may be experienced because the design focuses more on outlines than shading. However, individuals who are ready to get a tattoo are more likely to focus on the art that is being created before them as opposed to how uncomfortable the procedure may be.

In this article, we have covered the celebrities who have made a single needle tattoo. Thus, you can get inspired by them if you spot your favorite ones on this list!

Celebrities with Single Needle Tattoos

Both Will Peltz and Nicole Peltz have matching Hebrew tattoos on the left side of their rib cages. She has the tattoo “משפחה ערשט” in Yiddish which means “Family First” while Will has “ משפּחה”  meaning “Family.” It is the historical language of Ashkenazi (Eastern European) Jews. Yiddish is written in the Hebrew alphabet. In addition to being Jewish, they have Ashkenazi roots on their father’s side of the family, so Yiddish was the preferred language for their tattoos.

This is the first tattoo Nicola has ever had, and this is Will’s as well. Their July 2016 session with Dr. Woo was both their first tattoo sessions. In comparison to her tattoo, his looks like traditional Hebrew lettering, which is much thicker and darker. A handwritten letter-styled tattoo along her arms makes the tattoo appear subtle.

There is another lion tattoo on the back of her arm that is related to this one.  The first tattoo she got was of a male and female lion together to symbolize the hope she has of finding her true love.  The relationship began almost immediately afterward and she began dating Italian singer/rapper Fedez.  Getting engaged in May 2017 and welcoming their first child in March 2018 were major milestones for the couple.  As a result of having a lion tattoo, she chose to name her son Leone, an Italian word meaning lion.  Chiara wanted to give her son a lion tattoo as well since the lion couple represents her and her husband.  Leonard became a mother on March 19, 2018, and she then got a tattoo on her upper right arm of a mother lioness playing with her baby cub less than a few weeks later.

  • Katy Perry Single Needle Tattoo Design On Wrist

Celebrities with Single Needle Tattoos

Each time Katy Perry is nearing the end of her tour cycle, she gets a tattoo representing one of her albums. In the aftermath of Witness: The Tour, she finally went ahead with her Witness tattoo on August 17, 2018, just days before the country’s end. The world tour began last September.

 She has previously had three tattoos in very similar styles, turning symbols from the album into colorful cartoon characters with cutesy eyes. The previous three were all on her ankles, featuring strawberry, peppermint, and prism. The only thing different about this tattoo is that it is designed by a completely different tattoo artist, on a completely different body part, and it is done in a completely different style.

 A Los Angeles-based artist called Dr. Woo jetted out to Sydney, Australia, to tattoo her and many other members of her crew. The tattoo artist is known for his intricate fine-line designs. He applied that signature style to this tattoo as well. The tattoo Dr. Woo designed for Kate was basically what Katy said she wanted as a Witness tattoo: “a form of an eye.” That design still holds true, but there are a lot more characteristics to it.

An architectural line is drawn through the white parts of the eye, which appear to be a ring around the pupil of the eye. The ring replicates the shape of the pupil of a planet. A twinkling star above symbolizes the life of a star and also creates a sense of outer space. The entire design has an almost spaceship-like feel, which is reinforced by the outer space feel. However, the corner of the eye is also marked by a teardrop.

The eye is a very prominent symbol of Katy’s Witness era, which is why she chose one for her tour tattoo. In addition to her album cover featuring an eye in her mouth, stage backdrops and costumes have featured motifs of the eye. She adapted the shape of her tattoo directly from the eye-shaped video screens that adorn the stage behind her. Her tattoo features whites separated from iris on elongated eyes.

Similarly, her tattoo depicts an image that resembles Saturn from the tour’s stage design. In addition to performing “Thinking of You” on top of the planet every night, Katy also sang other songs.

  • Hailey Baldwin Single Needle Tattoo Design On Neck Line

At the end of August 2016, after a few months of being single and ‘dating’ guys who were not right for me, I tattooed two lions on the back of my right arm; a male lion and a female lion, which meant true love to me. The next day, Fede wrote to me to go to dinner and a week later we had our first date. I found my true love and [my son] Leo is the celebration of this love.

  • Chiara Ferragni Single Needle Tattoo Design On Arm

Celebrities with Single Needle Tattoos

A very faint tattoo of the children’s book character The Little Prince (Il Piccolo Principe) has been found on Chiara Ferragni’s left bicep.  She met up with Los Angeles tattoo artist Dr. Woo in her hotel room in March 2018 while he was in Paris, doing the tattoo in her hotel room.

Her tattoo may look sideways from the front, but when she holds the arm outwards, it is oriented properly from the front.  Among the illustrations she chose, she drew a picture of The Little Prince standing in the grass with his star shining down on him.  On the page where the prince tells the narrator, it appears to be an unexpected revelation: “In one of the stars, I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars will be laughing when you look at the sky at night..You, only you, will have stars that can laugh!”

  • Chiara Ferragni Single Needle Tattoo Design On Upper Left Arm

single needle tattoo

During her twenties, Chiara Ferragni wrote a quote in her own handwriting on the back of her upper left arm: “I swear I will never give in/I refuse”: a strong statement of her commitment to never giving in.  It comes from the song “Best of You” by The Foo Fighters, who she describes as “one of my forever favorite bands.” She wrote on her website The Blonde Salad:

It’s a sentence with such a big meaning to me, from one of my favourite songs, written so thin that it looks like it is only written by pen. I’ve been wanting this tattoo for months and in Los Angeles I finally made my decision and made it.

Getting her tattoo in April 2012 is what prompted her to get it.  There is a strong message in this song to always keep fighting when confronted with adversity.  The following is what she told Glamour:

My favorite [tattoo] I got done on my last night in L.A. after Coachella by Dr. Woo, who is super good, and it’s in my handwriting; I just wrote it on paper.

While that may not be her favorite tattoo now, it was back in 2013, when she only had five tattoos.

  • Madison Beer Single Needle Tattoo Design On Ankle

Celebrities with Single Needle Tattoos

On the inside of her right ankle, Madison Beer has a tiny tattoo of a bee.  The tattoo is somewhat reminiscent of a matching one, but not exactly.

She is engaged to Zack Bia, who has a larger and more intricate tattoo of a bee on the back of his arm that he received from artist bodies need rest in November 2017.  Additionally, he has a tattoo of the letter “B,” likely for his last name of Bia.

Several months after her first version, Madison received a scaled-down version from the same artist.  Madison got her own tiny bee tattoo that matched Zack’s existing ink at The Honorable Society Tattoo Parlor in Los Angeles on December 6, 2017. Zack sat by her side while Madison got her own bee to match his.

A tweet from May 2018 confirmed that these are the only tattoos she has, but added that she might get some more in the future.

I have two! a lip tattoo that says Honey I got about 2 years ago and a little bee on my ankle I got like 6 months ago. I might get more but very small ones.

In different cultures, the seven-pointed star is known by many names, including the septagram or heptagram. Alchemists used it to represent the seven planets; one of its oldest uses is to represent the seven planets. Newer interpretations have placed the star at the heart of a compass that points north, south, east, west, above, below, and within. The symbol is used multiple times in Christianity with multiple meanings: the seven days of creation, God’s perfection, warding off evil, and the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: knowledge, wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, fear and delight in the Lord.

Her husband allegedly talked to RaeLynn about having more tattoos, and she gave him a promise she wouldn’t get new tattoos until her new album Wildhorse became a No. 1.

The actress Bette Davis is credited for making the quote “Take Fountain” famous. Asked about the best way for young actors to enter Hollywood, our interviewer expected her to offer advice about acting or career paths. It was a different answer than she gave, “Take Fountain,” because driving on Fountain Avenue provides a shortcut from the Hollywood neighborhood into Hollywood.

“My most meaningful tattoo is probably my newest, it’s my light bulb that I got on the back of my arm. My name Lucy in Latin means ‘as of light.’ I actually have light tattooed on me too, but this is a representation of my name. It was done by Dr Woo who is just so cool and so artistic and probably my favorite tattoo artist, so I feel lucky that I got an appointment with him.”

She posted some pictures of her vintage-style light bulb tattoo on Instagram, captioning it:

Be the light. Thank you @_dr_woo_ for my new tattoo that’s my new favorite. I also feel the need to apologize to my mom every time I get a tattoo…sorry momma!

In September 2016, Becky G got a dragonfly tattoo on the left side of her ribcage. Inked in a delicate yet meticulous manner, the piece shows artist Doctor Woo’s signature style. Although she was drawn to the artist’s works, she had difficulty scheduling a session with him due to his high demand. “Just waiting for an opening with the tattoo artist I’ve wanted it from forever,” she wrote on Twitter.

She created the dragonfly to represent the spirit of her deceased cousin Ceci, who was six years older than Becky and passed away when Becky was only three years old. On the episode of Es Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry, she elaborated on her relations with her cousin, saying that losing their house as a kid was one of the most difficult times in her life. “That’s when I turned to who I consider my guardian angel till this day. I lost her when I was really young. She was around the same age. She was just always with me, still after she passed away. She was with me, I could see her, and I could feel her.” On her nightstand, she kept a picture of her cousin Ceci framed in the house. It was one of the only things she kept from her bedroom at the time.

“If you look at the frame it has dragonflies on it, and I’ve always connected her to dragonflies. Just the other day I was on stage and I was about to perform in front of like 50,000 people and there was a dragonfly circling around me. I got very overwhelmed with emotions because I was very — I was at my limit, I was exhausted, I didn’t want to continue. And the dragonfly kind of just changed everything.”
