We must finally be getting old, because Ariana Grande is way more famous than we thought that she was. Really folks, did you know that she starred in not only “Victorious” but also “Sam & Cat”? No? Well if you’re a teenage girl, then you should have already been armed with that knowledge; if you’re not, then you know her as that girl who sings that song that you like. Grande is the voice behind “The Way” and “Problem”, those songs that are on the radio basically all of the time. The Nickelodeon channel product is a big deal these days, and like all young big deals these days, she’s got herself a few tattoos.
Her first piece of ink was the tiny heart (like her song “Tattooed Heart”) that she got on her toe back in April of 2012. She was in the process of recording her debut album “Yours Truly” and she got it to commemorate that time in her life. She had it done while she was sitting in the studio and it’s a very typical first tattoo for a young girl: tiny, simple, and not even shaded. It’s very much the kind of tatt that someone gets just to be able to say that they have ink. She followed that up two years later when she had Romeo Lacoste from the show “Best Ink”do some work on the back of her neck. No one really knows what it says for sure, but most people agree that it says “Mille Tendresse.” which is French for “a thousand tendernesses” (it’s from the movie “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”). Again, it’s very simple, but it’s a nice little message and looks cute on her. The same day that she got her neck done she also had a little piece put on her side to honor her grandfather. The simple piece is just the Italian word for “beautiful”, which is of course “Bellissima”.
Ariana Grande doesn’t have a ton of ink as of yet, but to be honest, we don’t see her getting too much more. A lot of times, when someone gets three tattoos in just a couple of years, they end up covered later in life. However, when the pieces are so tiny and simple, and when they’re on a someone who isn’t even mildly alternative, they’re almost never the start of an addiction. We’d be really surprised if we ended up writing too much more about this particular pop princess.
