Two weeks after refuting reports that she’d entered treatment to “prioritize” her mental and physical health, Paris Jackson is capping off the month by carrying right along with her life as usual, which is to say adding to her massive collection of tattoos. At last count, she already had more than 50 (aka more than double the 20-year-old’s age). On Tuesday, she debuted her latest addition—which is to say additions—by sharing a photo of four more tats she’d just added to one of her arms, which now run the length of her bicep.
If her latest just look like decoration, you’re clearly not a Led Zeppelin fan. The same, of course, can’t be said for Jackson, whose enthusiasm took even her by surprise. “Was planning for a few months on just getting zoso but then i said fuck it,” she elaborated on Twitter of how she ended up with all four, which date back to the band’s fourth album. Rather than choose a title, Jimmy Page decided that each band member should contribute a symbol; he opted for “zoso,” whereas John Paul Jones chose a circle, Robert Plant chose a feather, and John Bonham chose a trinity.
Jackson has already devoted quite a bit of her body to paying tribute to musicians: She also has tattoos dedicated to David Bowie, Prince, and John Lennon—not to mention, of course, her father, Michael Jackson. Her latest comes courtesy of Tattoo Mania in West Hollywood, which was also behind the tiny matching spoon tattoos that she and her godfather, Macaulay Culkin, got in 2017.
Jackson knows that tattoos aren’t for everyone. “The craftsmanship of tattoos will always be a controversy. some people like them, some people absolutely hate them. i appreciate art, i always have, especially when that art means something to me,” she captioned a since deleted Instagram, according to People. “Today i can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me, i don’t see a dark past anymore. my scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity.. and depth,” she continued. “They represent strength for me. i look back at my old self and then i look in the mirror, and i see a fighter looking back at me. i’ll always keep fighting, and encouraging others to stay strong.”
A Guide to All Your Favorite Models’s Tattoos, from Paris Jackson’s New Ink to Kate Moss’s £1 Million Tramp Stamp
Kate Moss, who bared her anchor tattoo on W‘s March 2012 cover, also has a “tramp stamp” in the form of two birds on her lower back, inked by none other than Lucian Freud.
Cara Delevingne, a Leo, got her very first tattoo in 2013—the first of many to come, including an elephant on her forearm.
And then there was the time Delevingne let her Suicide Squad costar Margot Robbie tattoo a smiley face onto the bottom of her big toe.
Bella Hadid got two teensy matching wing tattoos on her ankles—quite apt for someone who’d just stolen the show on the Victoria’s Secret runway.
Kendall Jenner got a lip tattoo reading “MEOW” late last year, courtesy of “Bang Bang.”
A few months before she got her own tat, Jenner designed this one for her pal Hailey Baldwin, which was also inked by Bang Bang.
Like the Delevingne sisters, Ireland and Hailey Baldwin also have teamed up on tats to remind you of their legacy.
Hot felon-turned-model Jeremy Meeks is covered in tattoos, including some that stretch up to his neck.
Jourdan Dunn, who has a bevy of tattoos, including her son Riley’s name on her hand, got matching D’s with Cara Delevingne back in 2014.
A master of subtle tattoos—including her matching butterfly with Travis Scott—Kylie Jenner has also adorned her forearm with a teensy red dot.
Last year, Kylie Jenner got matching red squiggly lines with her BFF Jordyn Woods, tucked away inside both of their pinky fingers.
You may not have heard of “Zombie Boy” Rick Genest, who inspired Lady Gaga and walked for brands like Thierry Mugler in six years or so, but he’s definitely still covered in tats!
In case you forgot she was a model named Chanel Iman, Chanel Iman has her name and a clothes hanger emblazoned across the back of her neck.
Fellow Balenciaga model and Insta star Ilana Kozlov also has some sleeves in the making, as well as “NO GODS, NO MASTERS,” across her chest.
Perhaps the most tatted name in the game, Cat McNeil has a back covered in ink—not too surprising for a model who cut off all her hair for Alexander Wang.
Julia Nobis may not have Instagram, but the longtime Raf Simons muse’s tats have still made their way around the internet, like the Dr. Seuss phrase “Oh, the places you’ll go!” across her forearm.
Joan Smalls got her “first and last tattoo” in 2015, dedicated to her mother.
