Here’s an up-close look at Pink’s many tattoos, and the meaning behind them:
The tattoo on Pink’s left forearm arm reads “Sir Corky Moore 89-03.” It’s in honor of her dog who passed away in 2003. She says, “He was my childhood dog, West Highland terrier.”
Pink has half of a “Best Friend” heart on her left arm. Pink says she got it with her friend Lara.
On Pink’s left forearm is a tattoo of a bulldog, and a Bible verse in tattoo form. “This was Elvis, a bulldog,” Pink told The Independent newspaper. “Next to it him is a Bible verse: ‘A time to weep, a time to laugh, a time to mourn, a time to dance, sleep in peace my darling, I release you’ – he drowned in my pool. I wasn’t there. He was being babysat.”
Pink has a razor blade on her left wrist. Underneath is the word “Insecurite” (Insecurity). Pink says, “That means to me that insecurity will kill you.”
Pink’s “Tru Luv Carey” tattoo on her right wrist. Carey and Pink got the “Tru Luv” tattoos on their second date; she added his name when they started trying to get pregnant. She said, “‘Well, I guess if I’m gonna have his baby, I should get his name.’ Because he has my name three places.”
The tattoo on Pink’s right wrist says, “What goes around comes around.” She says, “I got this on my right wrist when I was 17.”
Pink has a wavy line design behind her left ear:
On the back of Pink’s neck is a bar code tattoo. She says that was “my Missundaztood present.”
Pink had her second tattoo, an angel chasing a shooting star, done at age 15 on her back/left shoulder. Pink says she thinks of herself as the star being followed by her guardian angel.
Pink has a “Help” button on her right arm. She says she got it with her friend Butch: “We got done early in the studio that night. We had been drinking. Obviously.”
On the back of each leg, Pink has a red ribbon. “Why? In my head I’m a really talented stripper.”
Pink has a dragon on her left calf, ink that took seven hours when she got it done in Australia. She says, “I think dragons are good luck. And it looks hot.”:
Pink’s inner thigh tattoo says “Mr. Pink”:
Pink’s hip tattoo is a heart:
On her feet, Pink has several tattoos. Some are Japanese kanji, including her first tattoo that reads “Good luck and happiness.” She was 12 when she got it done. The others read “Strength,” “The Will to Live,” and “Mother.” Pink’s mom has a matching one. She also has a frog tattoo on her left foot. On her right ankle, she has dog tags for her dad and brother.
The irony of all of this? “I don’t like tattoos,” Pink says. “If I had an eraser, woosh…If I could start over, I’d do just one big back piece and have a clean [front]. I’m into balance.”
