Tattoos are addicting, as everyone who has one knows. This is why Ariana Grande Tattoos styles are so well-known among tattoo fans. Let’s see; this search went popular in 2019 after the singer exhibited a tattoo of a Japanese word in a video, and her admirers detected a translation issue. The singer intended to tattoo herself in Japanese “barbecue” after wanting to paint the name of her record 7 Rings. (Be wary of tattooing words in another language without first consulting a native.) From then on, the search for Ariana’s tattoos on Google grew, and it is still a source of inspiration for many “tattoo addicts” today.
Ariana Grande’s Tattoos
1. Grandpa Grande
She has “Bellissima” and “Baby Doll” tattooed on her ribs and middle finger, respectively, nicknames given to Grande by her late grandfather, Frank.
2. Tattooed Heart
Ariana received her first tattoo when she was 18 years old in 2012. It’s a tattoo on her right foot’s second toe that depicts the bold outline of a heart. Ariana claims that she received this tattoo while working on her debut album Yours Truly and that it was inspired by the song “Tattooed Heart.”
3. Mille Tendresse
Ariana got her second tattoo on the back of her neck. It was completed on March 14, 2014, and says ‘Mille Tendresse,’ which translates to “a thousand tenderness.” This is a phrase from Ariana’s favorite movie, Breakfast At Tiffany’s, which stars her idol, Audrey Hepburn.
4. Crescent Moon
On April 14, 2015, Ariana revealed that she had received her fourth tattoo. The tattoo is a crescent moon shape beneath her left ear. Brian, her backup dancer and close friend, got the same tattoo. It relates to the song “Moonlight” from her third studio album, Dangerous Woman.
5. אלד and Honeymoon
On April 16, 2015, it was revealed that Ariana had gotten two new little tattoos on her right fingers at her meet & greet in Vancouver, Canada, during The Honeymoon Tour. It’s a nod to her Honeymoon Tour and one of her all-time favorite songs, “Honeymoon Avenue.” In a Q&A with Billboard in 2013, she stated that the song means a lot to her since it is a personal song and the events depicted in the song have happened to her in real life.
The other tattoo (which she most likely received during her honeymoon) is a little Hebrew word on the very side of her right ring finger. It is the tenth of God’s 72 names, and it is written with the Hebrew characters aleph, lamed, and daled. The name “protects from the evil eye and bad dreams and aids in the process of rebirth.” Ariana’s faith, Kabbalah, is referenced in this tattoo.
6. Tattooed Heart2.0

A suicide bomber bombed Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman Tour event in Manchester on May 22, 2017. The next day, Ariana flew back to Boca Raton, Florida. Two weeks later, the One Love Manchester benefit concert was held to raise some funds for the victims of the attack, both those who died and those who were injured. As an homage, Ariana and her team supposedly all got bee tattoos. Ariana also shared a bee symbol on Instagram after learning she had been named an honorary citizen of Manchester.

“R.E.M” is another fresh tattoo spotted behind Ariana’s right ear (below her second black heart tattoo). The tattoo is a nod to her fourth studio album, Sweetener, and the song “R.E.M.”
