Our girl Pink is one of the most honest, outspoken pop stars out there - it's why we love her! And whenever she is asked about her tattoos, of which she has many, she never holds back on sharing the meaning behind them.

"I can explain every single one of 'em and have a good laugh." Pink said about her collection of ink.

Guardian Angel & Shooting Star

At just 15 Pink got the design of a guardian angel chasing a shooting star on her shoulder blade. She has said that the star represents herself. The celestial figure is the guardian angel she addressed in her soul-baring song "Dear Diary", from her second album, 2001's Missundaztood.


Pink has a large dragon tattoo on her thigh. She credits the piece as her good luck charm saying that she sees dragons as possessing good luck. The piece took 7 hours to do.

'What Goes Around Comes Around'

Just above her wrist Pink has 'What Goes Around Comes Around'. She got the ink when she was 17 and in 2017 she said that it was her favourite tattoo. When asked to explain the reason she got it she said "If you're really nice to people, they'll be nice to you back. That's the hope, right?" 

'Tru Luv'

Pink and her husband, Carey Hart, got matching "Tru Luv" tattoos on their second date back in 2001.

Japanese Letters

These Japanese letters on Pink's ankle are one of the first tattoo's she ever recieved. "One is my very first one when I was 12. My mom didn't know; she freaked out; she was always freaking out," she explained. "It says, 'Good luck and happiness.' Then my mom and I got matching ones — her first, when she was 55! Mine says 'Mother.' Then there's 'Strength' and 'The will to live.'"

Panic Button

"I have a button on my right arm that I got with my friend Butch," Pink told The Independent in 2012. "We got done early in the studio that night. We had been drinking. Obviously."

A Frog

Pink has a frog on her foot and when asked about it, she said "I like frogs."

A tribute to her dog

'Sir Corky Moore 89-03' is etched on Pink's forearm. He was a West Highland Terrier and was Pink's childhood pup.

Dog Tags

On the opposite ankle to her frog, Pink has two dog tags etched around her ankles.

Pink's dad Jim served in Vietnam, and had the rocket-launchers in the garage and psychological issues to prove it. The first song she ever learnt and ever performed was "I Have Seen the Rain", a song he'd written while in Vietnam. Pink used to sing it at Veterans' rallies, and covered the song on her fourth album, I'm Not Dead. Her brother, Jason, has never been deployed to a combat zone, but he's a trainer with the air force.

Bulldog & Bible Verse

The bulldog is a tribute to Pink's old dog Elvis. The bible reads: 'A time to weep, a time to laugh, a time to mourn, a time to dance, sleep in peace my darling, I release you'

Pink revealed that he passed away. "He drowned in my pool. I wasn't there.He was being babysat."

Half a heart

The broken heart with half of the words 'best friends' scribed across it is a nod to her best friend, Lara. Lara has the matching other half.


"I have a barcode on the back of my neck, which was my Missundaztood present"

Razorblade - Pink has a tattoo of a razor blade on the inside of her wrist with the words 'insecurity'.

Mr. Pink - On the inside of her thigh, Pink has 'Mr Pink' tattooed.
