Throughout her time in the spotlight, Ariana Grande has racked up her fair share of tattoos. The songstress got her first ink back in 2012 and has racked up over 50 since then! They cover her arms, hands, rib cage, neck and more — and they’ve definitely become a huge part of her.
From tons that act as heartfelt tributes (like the one honoring the victims of the Manchester bombing) and others that are just fun to look at (like her three Harry Potter-inspired tats), she has some pretty epic tattoos and keeps unveiling more and more. Although fans love seeing her intricate tats, the songstress made the decision to cover up her body art for her wedding to Dalton Gomez in May 2021.
Us Weekly confirmed that the couple tied the knot on May 15, 2021, with a rep for Ariana telling the publication, “The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn’t be happier.” Days after saying their “I dos,” Ariana herself took to Instagram and shared photos from the couple’s big day. Some eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice the absence of the butterfly tattoos on her arm. Her Pokémon Eevee design along with the Spirited Away character and words inked on her arms were also absent, but her back tat was on full display in the stunning strapless dress.
Her “Honest to God, knock me out” hand tat was also visible along with the words “Baby Doll” inked between her fingers. As fans know, the “7 Rings” singer also has leaves, a star and moon design and heart tattoos on her hands. Of course, it’s no secret that she has some tattoos on her rib cage, but those were covered during the wedding due to Ariana’s dress anyway.
When it comes to talking about all of her tattoo designs, Ariana has stayed pretty tight-lipped about their meanings. Over the years, her fans are quick to notice when another tat pop’s up on Ariana’s body, but other than that she’s kept them to herself. Especially, the ones that have been covered after splitting from an ex! But what do all of them mean? Did she really get some dedicated to her ex-fiancé, Pete Davidson? Well, J-14 did a major investigation and broke down all of Ariana’s ink designs. From what she’s said about them to what fans think they mean, scroll through our gallery for a complete breakdown of all Ariana’s tattoos.
