Ariana Grande currently has 69 known tattoos with 6 remaining unknown. She also previously had 6 other tattoos that she's since had covered. She got her first inking in 2012 when she was 18.

Tattooed Heart[]

This year has been 1 of the happiest and most enlightening years for me and I felt like I wanted to do something special to remind me of this time....writing my 1st album, working with my castmates & best friends on victorious, being young, having fun and being surrounded by love.. so..I wanted to do something permanent to remind me to always be grateful and not take anything for granted so.. I got a little tattoo.

This is Ariana's first tattoo, which she got in 2012 at the age of 18. It is a tattoo on the second toe of her right foot and shows the bold outlining of a heart. Ariana says she got this tattoo whilst working on her debut album Yours Truly, and is also inspired by the song “Tattooed Heart” (which was one of her favorite songs from the album).

Mille Tendresse[]

Not exactly the easiest spot to get a photo of on your own but nonetheless I am very happy.

Ariana's second tattoo was a writing on the back of her neck. It was done on March 14, 2014, and reads the words ‘Mille Tendresse’, which translates to "one thousand tenderness". This is a line from the movie Breakfast At Tiffany’s, which is one of Ariana’s favorite movies and stars her idol, Audrey Hepburn.

Bellissima[]

I plan to get a ton of little discreet tats here and there throughout my life that are meaningful to me. I thoroughly enjoy them. ‘bellissima’ is next. It’s what my grandpa calls me.

’Bellissima’ is something that Frank Grande, Ariana’s grandpa, used to call her. It is tattooed on her left side near her chest. Ariana also got this tattoo on the same day some of her friends got their first, which she claims was a real “bonding experience”. It means "really beautiful"/"a really beautiful girl" in Italian.

Crescent Moon[]

moon baby

Ariana announced that she had gotten a fourth tattoo on April 14, 2015. The tattoo is the outline of a crescent moon below her left ear. Her backup dancer and close friend Brian also got the same tattoo. It refers to the song “Moonlight”, off her third album Dangerous Woman.

Honeymoon & אלד[]

On April 16, 2015, (at Ariana's meet and greet in Vancouver, Canada during The Honeymoon Tour) it was shown that Ariana had gotten two new small tattoos on her right fingers. It is a reference to her Honeymoon Tour and one of her personal favorite songs she’s ever recorded, “Honeymoon Avenue”. She said the song means so much to her because it’s a personal song and the events that occur in the song have happened to her in real life in a Q&A with Billboard in 2013. The other tattoo (that she probably got at the same time as the honeymoon one) is a small Hebrew phrase on the side of her right ring finger. It is the tenth name in the 72 names of God which is spelled with the Hebrew letters aleph, lamed, and daled. The name "protects from the evil eye and bad dreams, and helps the rebirthing process." This tattoo is a reference to Ariana's faith which is Kabbalah.

Ariana's brother Frankie Grande also got a similar אלד tattoo.[1]

Second Tattooed Heart[]

At Ariana's show in Paris during The Honeymoon Tour on May 14, 2015, it was shown that Ariana had gotten another tattoo. It is a small outline of a heart on her right ring finger, similar to her first tattoo.

Hi (Covered)[]

On June 13, 2015, Ariana and Ricky Alvarez showed their new tattoos on Ariana's Snapchat story (moonlightbae). They both joked about it, but the tattoo itself couldn't be seen. On November 22, 2015, at the AMAs she was seen with a tattoo on her toe on her left foot. Ariana has since had this tattoo covered. Ariana also has an unreleased song called Hi, which was recorded prior to getting this tattoo. The song likely was the inspiration for the tattoo.

Babydoll[]

On January 14, 2016, Ariana posted a picture on Snapchat which showed she had gotten a tattoo on the inside of her finger which says "babydoll" in capital letters. This is a nickname her Nonna uses for her.

Female/Venus Symbol[]

A[]

I got this one for my best friend/myself because we both have the same initial.

On the same night as her female symbol tattoo, August 25, 2016, Ariana also got a tattoo of the letter A. Ariana explained on her Instagram and Snapchat that it was in reference to the first initial of longtime best friend, Alexa Luria, even though a lot of people thought she did it for her own name.

Bee[]

On May 22, 2017, Ariana's Dangerous Woman Tour concert in Manchester was attacked by a suicide bomber. Ariana flew back to Boca Raton, Florida the next day.
