Meaning: Erika and her ex, Jake Paul got these matching goat tattoos. Erika’s goat tattoo also represents her love for goats as she used to have a pet goat. She said, “Why am I obsessed with goats? When I was 12 years old or so I had a pet goat. I loved this goat so much. His name was Twinklebuddy. I also had a couple of other weird animals with weird names, but Twinklebuddy was my favorite and he actually died unexpectedly. I’ve been obsessed with goats my entire life. I don’t know where it came from — well I know it came from Twinklebuddy but it’s stayed with me all the way until right now. So that’s the reasoning behind everything goat. It also means Greatest Of All Time.”

Erika calls him, her “Guardian Angel” and also wrote, “My old manager, Larry Murdock, is the reason I started modeling. When I was 16, he took me to a photoshoot (even though I never thought I could be a model), and ever since that day I fell in love with being behind the camera. He is now in heaven watching over me and my career, thank God for that man.”

She explained, “Right now it’s a bittersweet moment. I love Team 10, but it’s time to get my Team 10 tattoo removed…because the guy who did my tattoo completely screwed it up. It’s uneven. The color is ugly. It was just a total fail…That’s my seventh tattoo and I’ve had no problems with any other tattoos and I just can’t get used to this one. I hate it; it’s poorly done.”
