It's always summertime sadness with these hopelessly lovely Lana Del Rey tattoos that perfectly captured the Lolita singer.
Many of her fans see her as this modern day goddess straight out of a vintage film with James Dean. And like many pop singers, she's been accused of the same “she can't sing, she's had plastic surgery” stuff but it's really the least of our concerns because we really enjoy listening to her music. She's one of the poster girls of the “s a d g i r l s” subculture, as characterised by her melancholic music and aesthetic tastes.
And who could forget her getting frisky with alternative tattoo model, Bradley Soileau in her music video for ‘Born to Die’? The chemistry was beautiful.
Here are two of Lana's visible tattoos—with the one on her left hand causing buzz by being linked to Adele's although this was purely coincidental and the tattoos meant two different things for both singers.
A beautiful quote by playwright and novelist Oscar Wilde, adapted into a song lyric by Lana in ‘Gods and Monsters.’
A couple more Lana Del Rey song titles.
A beautiful graphite pencil-inspired, black and grey piece by Jaime Ames Navarro.

A literally tasty-looking piece by Nat G, taken from the lyrics of Radio.
