Selena will forever be in our hearts no matter what anyone says. She blessed the world and us with her amazing Tejano music and truly lived as la reina. She might have been killed in 1995, but her memory lives on in our heart. There are also a few people who keep Selena’s memory alive via tattoos. How she felt about tattoos? We might never know but these fans are putting her on their bodies for life and they seem totally fine with the idea. Here are 25 Selena tattoos celebrating la reina.
That iconic movie title font is instantly recognizable.
The addition of Selena standing on top of it in her purple jumper is nice touch to really drive it home. But is it so amazing that that font is directly tied to that movie and our reina.
This iconic photo will never be old.
That is one expensive way to pay tribute to Selena, for sure. Just a regular, little Chinese character will run you close to $50 so we can only imagine how musch this rendition of the photo cost.
Nothing like some simple song lyrics to keep the posers at bay.
True Selena fans will be able to spot this tattoo coming from a mile away and what it truly means. You are probably singing this song to yourself right now, aren’t you?
Give her that virgen glo-up.
That’s right. There is nothing wrong with paying her the ultimate tribute and canonizing her. Who can argue that she is not among the angels after her tragic death.
Why not get the most recognizable lyrics on your body?
This is so damn adorable. The use of the rose to let you know without a doubt that this is definitely about Selena Quintanilla-Perez.
Minimal line work can tell a very strong story.
To most people this will just look like a rose but to a true Selena fan, this is everything. She loved roses and a touching way to remember her is to get a simple (or large) rose in remembrance.
Can’t forget about those Dinos, yo.
Selena became a name in her own right but it was because of Los Dinos that she started that climb into stardom. You should never forget the people that got you to where you are.
Turn one of her photos into a glam shot.
There is nothing wrong with tweaking her photos just a bit. It is actually a way to flatter the original since it now has a new life.
You are never too old to dig some cartoons.
This is eeeeeverything. From the sparkles to the color purple to her super cool hair. How are more people not in love with this take on Selena and her final concert?
Just the first name is enough.
Very few people have been able to reach the status that they are only known by one name. Others include Cher and Madonna. Seems like Selena is in good company.
Make it a little artistic by interpreting a lyric.
If you don’t know, that comes from “Como La Flor” hence all of the flowers over the phrase. This is such a cool idea that I might have to go out and get the same tattoo.
Día de los Muertos realness for the late queen.
Anything for Selena indeed. Some might think this is offensive but those people don’t know Mexican culture. This is how you represent loved one’s lost in the land of the dead.
On the nose tattoos are not bad.
“Como La Flor” wrapped around a rose is super literal but super classic. Got to love this take because it is probably exactly what she’d like.
Make her more of a pop culture icon.
Lotería meets Selena. We all know that La Sirena is known for her beauty and singing. Seems like exactly what we remember Selena for so…
Did we already mention Día de los Muertos?
Doesn’t matter because it is that awesome. This is what you do when you want to remember Mexican and Mexican-American loved ones when they pass.
Song titles can make the best tattoos.
We all know the significance of Apt. 512. There is a chico in there and we need to learn everything we can about him because he is the chico.
Selena adjacent tattoos are just as awesome.
It doesn’t have to be an image of the actual singer to be a touching tribute. This little tattoo of the car that saved a stranded Selena is so awesome and super relevant to her memory.
Get a pin-up Selena because why not.
This is another iconic look from the incredible singer. Why not make it more modern by giving it a pin-up feel?
The Selena fan dog whistle for the ages.
She was the biggest fan of pizzas and Coca-Cola. She was even a spokesperson for Coca-Cola so it is really a good tribute to the late-singer.
Quote her dad if you want to make a real splash.
No one will ever forget this moment in the movie when her father is totally blindsided with the super forward and progressive outfit.
This is Selena if she was going to Coachella.
Would she really go to Coachella? Probably. Selena did like dancing and listening to live music. After all, she made her start singing at fairs and festivals.
Honor her long overdue makeup line.
It sold out so quickly you probably never got to get your hands on any of it. The fact that it sold out before you could buy it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t honor it.
Zombie Selena might be a bit much.
However, who are you to tell someone how they can honor someone? Maybe they love zombies and Selena so this is the perfect homage.
Make Selena’s wax statue a tattoo.
Talk about meta. Rather than getting a tattoo of a real photo of Selena, you choose to get a tattoo of a wax statue based on a photo of the singer you are so in love with.
Juggalo Selena it kind of out there.
Hard to get behind something that seems to be way too much for any Selena fan to fully support.
From the moment she released “Bodak Yellow”, Cardi B has become everyone’s new favorite artist. The moment she comes on the radio, we’re all singing along. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve listened and rapped along to “Bodak Yellow” on repeat but these people took their love to a whole new level. Here are 25 Cardi B tattoos that show just how deep a fan’s love can go. You’ll love some of them while others will make you ask, “Is that Cardi B or Missy Elliot?”
1. Bardi Season

This Cardi B tattoo is the perfect tribute. That bling and Louboutin shoe cover some of our favorite lines from “Bodak Yellow”. “These expensive, these is red bottoms, this is bloody shoes.”
2. Cruella de Cardi B

The only thing missing from this tattoo is Cardi B’s Dalmatian. If anyone can pull off Cruella’s strong personality, it’s definitely Cardi B and this tattoo captures it all perfectly.
3. Retro Cardi

Cardi B is a 90’s baby and all those futuristic shapes and designs show that. Even better than the cool 90’s vibe is that you can almost hear her go “mmmhmmmm” in this tattoo.
4. Is That…

Missy Elliot? Nope, just another cool Cardi tattoo! I bet this is the face she makes when she’s thinking about her next money move. “It’s all about the schmoney!”
5. What Does That Say?

I can’t really read this one but it’s probably a transcript of one of the famous sounds Cardi B made in her Jimmy Fallon interview. If you don’t know what that means, look up that interview.

This loyal fan wanted to immortalize one of our favorite Cardi B faces on his body. Do you think his mom asks, “es tu novia” or did she just freak out voer the craziness of the tattoo.
7. Another Favorite Cardi Face

The tattoo artist that did this might just love Cardi as much as this fan does. This is the first of several of their tattoos that you’ll see on here and they’re all just as good as this one.
8. “F your feelings”

That’s the vibe that this tattoo gives off. I don’t know what she was saying when this photo was taken but I’m intimidated.
9. Caught A Lick”

Cardi B knows you “can’t stop a G” just like you can’t stop her fans from getting Cardi B tattoos. If we are just going on sayings, Cardi B tattoo inspiration is endless.
10. Beef With Me We Got Beef Forever!

Cardi B doesn’t have time for your beef, she’s too busy hoppin’ in her Porsche. “Okurr!?” If you want to get into an endless beef you won’t win, Cardi B is the person to beef with.
11. What Is She Saying?

So many of these tattoos show some of our favorite Cardi B moments and poses but all I want to know is, “what was she saying?” Cardi B has so many great quotes and phrases that I don’t want to miss out on any of it.
Personally, I think they’re tied. With bling like that, thank the universe we’re looking at a picture and not the real thing because Cardi B would leave us all blind.

This cool Cardi B tattoo is so nice that Cardi B posted it on her instagram! You know your tattoo’s cool when she loves it.
14. This Artist Has A Passion For Tattoos But Also…

“A passion for money and paying [their] bills.” This is the artist I mentioned earlier who’s done a few tattoos on this list. With talent like this, it’s not easy to guess why people keep going back to them.
15. “These Expensive, These Is Red Bottoms”

The best way to keep your Louboutins looking new is to have them tattooed on. Or you can just never wear them and keep them in the box.
16. “I Make Money Move”

It is actually kind of genius that they got this tattoo on their foot. Where else would you suggest getting a shoe tattoo than you foot?
17. Bloody. Shoes.
iamcardib / InstagramThis artistic take on the bloody shoe could be one of Cardi B’s favorites. Like one of our previous tattoos, Cardi B also posted this one on her Instagram. That is true artistry, tbh.

We can only assume that the person behind the idea for this tattoo is an Italian. The red bottom of the Italian boot is kind of awesome, though.
19. Bloody Ankle Moves?

The best way to have people know where you’re going is to get it tattooed on you. When your friends ask “where are you going?” just point to your tattoo as you walk away.
20. Money Move$

At first glance, this tattoo might just look like words but they found a cool way to incorporate “bloody moves” into their tattoo. I definitely didn’t catch it the first time I saw this photo.
21. A Classic Cardi Tattoo

This tattoo has the only classic Cardi B symbol you need, the red bottom. What’s better is the placement of the tattoo. Next time they shake someone’s hand, that person will see the tattoo and know who’s really in charge… Cardi B.
22. Cardi B’s Kiss

I actually don’t know if the kiss is a part of the Cardi B tattoo but how cool would that be if you could say that that’s Cardi B’s Kiss?!

Everyone is obsessed with this song by Cardi B and Bruno Mars so of course people would be getting her face with a backwards cap tattooed anywhere on their body. The hand seems a bit extreme but whatever.
24. Bartier Cardi

This person would love to party with Cardi. They stepped up their tattoo by dropping “a check on the chain” and adding a bit of Cartier to their tattoo.
25. Saved One Of The Best For Last
CREDIT: gmoney23 / Instagram
This is the same tattoo artist we mentioned earlier and everything about this photo screams “Cardi B”. Beyond the “Cardi B” tattoo, this person also has a Louboutin hiding up in the top left corner. If you look at their nails, you’ll see that their black nails are hiding some red bottoms underneath.
