Michelle Jacquet DeSevren Branch is an American songwriter, singer, and actress known for her famous song, “The Game of Love“, for which she won a Grammy award. Apart from being really talented as she is, Michelle has a craze for tattoos. She has her body parts inked many times and here’s the story behind each of her inks.
Michelle has a big cowgirl tattoo on her left forearm, where the cowgirl is seen shooting a gun. The tattoo, as she says, was inked during working for ‘The Wreckers‘ album. “Everyone thought I was crazy, but everyone thought I was crazy for doing this project. Every time I look at my arm, I remember being in the studio with Jess. It’ll always be my favorite.”
A cowgirl on the left and a feather on her right. Miss Branch, apparently has a (not to forget huge) feather tattoo on her right forearm.
Wanting to do something unexpected and quirky, Michelle got herself inked with “right” on right wrist and “left” on left wrist. She said, “Most people get something really meaningful written in cursive on their wrists and I thought from far away it just looks like something meaningful, beautiful. And I have a little bit of a goofy sense of humor so I thought well it’d be funny if people ask me what it is.”
4. Grammy Star
Michelle got a star inked on her right foot to honor her nomination at the Grammy’s. “I would get a tattoo at different career milestones—having a record go gold or platinum, stuff like that,” she said in an interview. She has a star inked on the backside of her neck too. She even has it on her ankle and her hip.
5. Love Love Love
“I have a heart on my ring finger in case I forget to wear my wedding rings,” she says. She got a heart inked in honor of her husband Teddy Landau, whom she married in 2004.
Branch has a flower tattoo on her left shoulder. (Branch, Flower, got it?)
If you don’t know what Kanji is, it is a Japanese system of writing using Chinese characters. Michelle has a kanji inscription at the small of her back.
9. Ode to Music
As an ode to music, Michelle has a musical note on her shoulder and it’s blue in colour.
