In 2023, Doja faced significant criticism for her latest tattoo. She clarified that the design represents imperfection, rather than any demonic symbolism. The 27-year-old’s contentious ink on her left forearm is inspired by a Giovanni Battista Bissoni illustration from Italian philosopher Fortunio Liceti’s 1634 work, De Monstruorum Causis, Natura et Differentiis (On the Reasons, Nature, and Differences of Monsters). Liceti perceived deformity not as a negative outcome of errors or failures in nature, but rather as a display of nature’s artistic ingenuity, adapting to and overcoming imperfections in materials to create even more remarkable forms.

6. Back Tattoo
