Tattoo Update

I've been wanting to update and add to this old tattoo post I did a few months ago. Since then, Freja's received some more ink, and I've come across better pictures of her existing tattoos. I'll probably have to do another one of these posts in a few months time, as tattoos have a tendency to pop up unexpectedly on Freja. But that's part of the reason I love her as a model. She's not afraid to assert her individuality in an industry that would rather have her as a blank slate.

1. "Float" located on the left side of her neck


2. Upside down Triangle on the back of her neck (outlined first, filled in later)


3. Circle done with dashed-lines behind her right ear


4. Cross on her right earlobe


5. "Serendipity is Life" on the back of her upper right arm


6. Colt Revolver on the inside of her upper left arm


7. "This Too Shall Pass" on the inside of her upper right arm


8. "This World Tonight is Mine" on her right wrist


9. "Redemption" on her upper left forearm


10. Three circles on her left wrist (outlined first, filled in later)


11. Star on her upper left torso (outlined first, filled in later)


12. "M" on her upper right torso


13. Lightening Bolt on her upper right torso (to cover up the "M")


14. Lines on her left middle finger


15. Graphic design on her lower stomach (no picture available)

If you're keeping track, Freja currently has 14 tattoos (that we know of) and she's been inked 18 times. Perhaps these numbers will be going up come September? Keep those eyes peeled.

just a little correction, #5 is Serendipity is me not life

Rrose Sélavy said...

Actually, it is "life" and not "me." I initially thought it was me as well, but in some interview it's written out as life. If you look closely you can see it. Makes more sense that way as well.

kunklebunkle said...

I think its "Life" as well. I also confused it for "Me" before. Also, I love how her tattoos are not so "in your face". I, personally, don't care for them. But I like how she made sure they were discreet.

The Rebel said...

Actually great post about her tattoos I've ever read before. Thx mate

no, it is actually 'serendipity is me' notice how every first word is capitalized, and a larger font. 'Serendipity Is Me'
there is a very clear photo I saw of it once, up close, I'll try and find it.

Rrose Sélavy said...

Like I said before, I thought it was "Me" as well until I read some interview or article. I can't remember what it was now, but I'm going to go on the printed word instead of what I think it is until I get confirmation from Freja herself. :) I'm assuming that whatever magazine printed it had their facts checked first. I'll try and find the source.

i-d's interview
i think you are right,if its wrong,freja will correct it immediately

Rrose Sélavy said...

Thanks! I knew I read it somewhere. :) i-D is pretty reputable so I hope they didn't make a mistake.

who's that she's kissing?

Anonymous said...

i think it's a fan :)

Danica Tancic said...

dude, a fan? freja is quite loyal to her fans.. :P

I don't see why you think it's good that they have to be discreet. Why hide them? Ink is beautiful. I have plenty already and planning out a full back piece and full sleeve.
No reason to be ashamed...

SS said...

I think you have to do an update of this post haha
On one of the photos of her latest Cyber Tribe editorial for Vogue UK, March 2010 you can see something written on her left hand ring finger. I would love to know what it is...

SocVovHaque said...

What do the three circles on her wrist mean? I have a necklace with them and I can't find the meaning anywhere!!!

Tanja said...

Hey Rrose!

Love this post! Was really inspired by Freja's tattoos. So inspired that I had to do a post on my blog too. Hope it's okay that I used some of the pics from your post?

love magazine mentioned that its " serendipity is life " on the cover page of her nude pics

Anonymous said...

What's the font of " This world tonight is mine"???

Anonymous said...

It is "Serendipity is Me". I know Freja, and this is what it says.

Anonymous said...

do you know what the name of the font that she uses for her tattoos?

Ashley Handlin said...

@ anonymous above -

i think she uses her own handwriting or the tattoo artist's handwriting - it doesnt appear to be a font because repeat letters (such as e's) change slightly even in the same word.

my tattoo that i have on my neck is my own handwriting, its not that uncommon.

From her Purple Fashion ed, doesn't she have a flame motif tattoo'd on her mons?

Anonymous said...

i think the interview you were talking about is the one in either ELLE or VOGUE where shes on the front cover. thats the article that made her one of my loves, right next to coco sumner.

Adriana said...

I thought that her tattoo said "Serendipity to me" (which also makes more sense than "Serendipity is life"). I love your blog! And Freja too of course n_n

Val said...

Who did her tatts? Anyone know?

Anonymous said...

it is serendipity is me.

each word starts with a capital letter.. so if it was 'life' it would have had a capital l and not a lower case one.

LaCreateur said...

Both "float" and "redemption" tattoos are in script font called Windsong

Anonymous said...

It's definitely "Serendipity Is Me". Just because a magazine article got it wrong and said it reads "Serendipity Is Life" doesn't mean their word is fact. They were mistaken.

Hi, can someone please tell me what colour did Freja Beha used to filled up the tattoo on her three vertical circles on her left wrist. Thank you!

Anonymous said...

Hi, does anyone know which font she used for "Redemption" and "This too shall pass"?

Thanks a lot.

Clélia said...

Brooklyn said...
