Celebrity Tattoos: Moms Who Like to Ink
- 1 of 13
Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, aka wife to super hottie David Beckham, isn't just a fashion designer and mama of four, she's a celebrity tattoo poster child! Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper's mom has numerous tattoos on her body, but her most notable is the one that runs from her neck down her spine, which reads "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine" in Hebrew. She and husband David got them together on their sixth wedding anniversary. Swoon.
No celebrity tattoo list is complete without the Queen of Ink herself, Angelina Jolie. Over the years, Jolie has gotten countless tattoos, but perhaps her sweetest are the ones of the coordinates of her six children—Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox—on her right arm. The seventh coordinate is of her husband Brad Pitt's birthplace—Shawnee, Okla.
"Transformers" star and mom to Noah and Bodhi is no stranger to tattoos. In total, Fox has eight tattoos (that we know of), but two of her most recognizable ones are the Shakespeare quote, "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies" on her right shoulder, and the one on her rib cage that reads, "There once was a little girl who never knew love until a boy broke her HEART." The latter is a poem Fox wrote herself.
Much to many people's surprise, Oscar winner and America's Sweetheart Reese Witherspoon is also on our celebrity tattoo list. The "Walk the Line" star and mama to Ava, Deacon and Tennessee, had a star tat on her belly for years, but, apparently after she wed husband Jim Toth, she added two birds to each side. Aww.
Blue Ivy's mama, Beyoncé, has a matching tattoo with husband Jay Z. The couple both have the roman numeral IV inked on their bodies—Beyoncé's is on her ring finger. When asked about her affinity for the number, the "Love on Top" singer said, "We all have special numbers in our lives, and four is that for me. It's the day I was born, my mother's birthday, and a lot of my friends' birthdays are on the fourth; April 4 is my wedding date."
Actress and founder of the Honest company, Jessica Alba, has a two small tattoos, one on her wrist and one on her lower back. Jessica, who has two daughters, Honor and Haven, has said of her wrist tattoo—the Sanskrit word for "lotus"—"For me it signifies the manifestation of spiritual beauty."
Mom and Oscar winner Julia Roberts revealed to Ellen last year that she has tattoos of her children's names and her husband's initials. The "Pretty Woman" star has her three kids' names—Hazel, Phinnaeus and Henry—on her lower back. And, yes, Ellen joked with her about "only" committing to her husband Danny Moder's initials!
"Vicky Cristina Barcelona" star Penelope Cruz is a notoriously private person when it comes to her kids, Leonardo and Luna. And the same goes for her tattoos. The Oscar winner has two tattoos—a cross on her hand and the numbers "883" on her ankle. She's been asked numerous times what the numbers mean, but she won't say.
Supermodel (and supermom!), Gisele Bundchen, has an often-replicated tattoo on her left wrist of the outline of a star. The mom to Benjamin and Vivian has said of the ink, "It's a shooting star, for my grandmother. She died when I was young. When I first moved to New York, there were no stars in the sky, so to remind me of her, I drew one on my wrist and kept it there for a month, and then had someone draw it in, which is why it's a little crooked."
