The sophisticated script running down her spine from the base of her neck reads, “Ani l’dodi li va’ani lo haro’eh bashoshanim.” Elegant. Romantic too. On Victoria and David Beckham’s sixth wedding anniversary they chose this line for matching tattoos. It means, “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.” But wait. Recent photos have revealed that the quoted text is gradually disappearing from her back as if she is undergoing laser tattoo removal procedures.
Another tattoo on her wrist is fading as well causing some to speculate that her new career as a businesswoman calls for a more professional image.
Chanel Iman Explains It
“It represents being a model,” Chanel Iman said of the logo-like drawing tattooed at the base of her neck. “You put clothes on a hanger and you put clothes on a model,” she expounded.
We like her thinking. It’s cute. A simple hanger resting atop her supermodel name. And, she has it in a very versatile spot, being able to cover it up with her hair anytime a shoot requires.
Lana Del Rey's Dark Side
Musician Lana Del Rey’s tattoos tend toward the morbid but meaningful. “Paradise” for the afterlife, “die young” scripted down her finger and “trust no one” on the poet’s left hand.
She’s also got the names of her favorite writers indelibly scripted on her arm. Nabokov and Whitman. They’ll go with her to the grave.
Rihanna Is Irresistible
Another one for the trendsetting diva. Like an entreaty for calm in the storm of celeb life, this inked script shows what she means when she brings her index finger to her lips: “Shhh…”.
This is quite a clever tattoo, and we're loving its uniqueness. In case anyone doesn't understand what the universal 'finger to the mouth' gesture means, Rihanna's tat is there to clear it up.
Minka Kelly's Red Star
In the past, the red star widely symbolized communist ideology, but it’s also a popular logo for Heineken and Macy’s. Everyone loves a red star. American TV actress Minka Kelly does too.
Maybe that’s why she tucked one just inside her right ankle. Swanky, yes?
