Tattoo: Olympic Rings

Meaning: Biles has got her right forearm inked with Olympic rings. This is her first tattoo, and this was inked at Body Electric Tattoo Shop in March 2017. With this permanent piece worn on her skin, she might have gotten more enthusiastic and dedicated to the coming Olympics. She added a picture on her Instagram account with a caption, “first tat, never too late to get the rings tatted, thanks for taking me neighbor (Jake Miller)” as Jake Miller has advised her to get the tattoo.

2. “And Still I Rise” Tattoo

In 2021, Biles got a tattoo on her collarbone with the words “And still I rise,” which refers to the famous poem with the same title by Maya Angelou. This poem talks about staying strong and respecting yourself, even when others try to criticize you. Biles has often talked about ignoring negative comments online, so this tattoo is a perfect choice for her.

3. “1997” Tattoo

In November, Biles went to the 2021 InStyle Awards sporting what looked like a new tattoo. The tattoo says “Golden” in cursive writing on her inner left wrist. She hasn’t explained the reason for this tattoo, but it might be another reference to her Olympic gold medals.

5. XO Tattoo

One of Biles’s tattoos that isn’t often seen is her “XO” tattoo. She hasn’t shared its meaning, but she has this phrase tattooed on her inner lip. From an earlier talk with NBC Sports, we know it’s the second tattoo she added to her collection. However, she says it has faded a bit now. “I need to get it touched up,” she mentioned. “I’ve always wanted a lip tat, and I heard it didn’t hurt. So I went and got one.”

6. Butterfly Hand Tattoo
