Much like Justin Bieber and Pete Davidson, Halseys entire body is covered with tattoos. But unlike theirs, Halseys tattoos will not cause you to gouge your eyes out and scream WHY, GOD, WHY at your computer. Her ink is actually coolin contrast to me saying the word inkand almost all the designs have a fascinating backstory, including her brand new knuckle one that pays tribute to Juice WRLD. And yes, there are a few breakup-related cover-ups coming atcha.

Her 929 Knuckle Tat

Kay, so this is either a reference to Halseys birthday (September 29, in case that isnt clear) or a reference to the 16th track on her upcoming album. Either way, fans are spiraling in the comments, so feel free to join in with your Very Important Thoughts.

Her Knee Band-Aid

This is one of Halseys newest tattoosand while she hasnt explained its deeper meaning yet, I think we can all agree it was probably pretty painful to get.

Her Juice WRLD Tribute

In honor of the late Juice WRLD and their new "Life's a Mess" song, Halsey inked the title across her knuckles and wrote, "Juice was one of the greatest people I have ever known, and one of the most brilliant artists we will ever live to witness."

This 'SNL' Tattoo

True story: Lil Wayne wrote this out for Halsey right after her Saturday Night Live performance. Like, thats literally his handwriting. In case youre wondering how many of my tattoos Lil Wayne designed, the answer is zero.

Her Casual Face Tat

A bold move, to be sure. Halsey has said this Queen of Hearts will hopefully be her only face tattoo in a since-deleted Instagram post. So, like, dont expect her to pull a Lil Xan.

Im a Loser Baby

This is pretty clearly a reference to Becks 1994 song Loser, but as for why Halsey felt the need to get it scrawled across her neck? _()_/

Marilyn Mansons...Face

You might be wondering...um...WHY. Apparently, Halsey is just a Manson fan, which she explained on Twitter, writing, Got Manson tatted on my ribs. I love Adelaide so much already. Marilyn. Not Charles. Sheesh lol.

Halsey revealed this tattoo in May 2019, and I think its safe to assume its a reference to her song of the same name. But, ya know, feel free to @ me with any elaborate theories.

Her Butt Tattoo

Two things: (1) Yes, Halsey has a butt tattoo and (2) yes, its a reference to her album Hopeless Fountain Kingdom.

Her Brat Tat

Halsey got this one because her parents lovingly call her a brat. Wow, same, except not lovingly.

These Violent Delights...

This quote probably sounds pretty familiar if you read Romeo and Juliet in high school watched Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo + Juliet in high school. Anyway, Halsey got it tattooed after signing her record deal as a reminder to pace herself.

Her Outlined Shoulder Roses

Halsey has had these since her 16th birthday, and she got them purely for aesthetic reasons. I went and got something that meant absolutely nothing and just looked beautiful, she said. Its still one of my favorite tattoos because Ill never dislike it. It just is cool-looking. Its really simple. I think its really elegant.

This tattoo is also rumored to be a shout-out to Halseys ex, mostly because Everything is the name of his album. But who knows, maybe its just a self-portrait! Calm down, everyone!

The Anchor on Her Foot

This was Halseys first tattoo and features her moms initials, NFC. And turns out, Halseys mom actually has a matching tattoo, which, cute! My mom was like, We anchor each other, Halsey told iHeart. I was like, Thats beautiful, Mom. Just let me get a tattoo. I dont care what it is. I just want to be cool.

Her Terrifying Dagger

IDK what this is, but Im scared, moving on.

Heaven in Hiding

Real ones know this is the name of one of Halseys songs on Hopeless Fountain Kingdom. No further explanation necessary!

Her FEROX Tattoo

To quote ya girl: It means fierce in Latin and it was given to me with a sewing needle, India ink, and a lot of vodka.

~The Planet Mars~

I got Mars because I met a guy on tour that I became really good friends with, and his birthday is on my half birthday and Im a Libra, Halsey told iHeart. So my ruling planet is Venus and his ruling planet is Mars, which are also opposites. So its, like, opposite birthdays, opposite signs, technically opposite personalities in astrology but complete opposites, and we were really good friends. So I got Mars and he got Venus. We got each others planet.

Her Little Prince Shout-Out

If youre a fan of The Little Prince, youll immediately recognize these four major themes of the bookespecially that cute fox! Halsey describes herself as a lover of literature, so this book clearly has a special meaning to her.

Two Mouths Kissing

Not sure about the meaning behind this one, but in the immortal words of Paris Hilton, thats hot.

Halsey rarely shows it off, but she most definitely has a tattoo that says baby riiiiight above her bikini line.

Her Upside-Down Horseshoe

In tattoo culture, youre not supposed to tattoo a horseshoe upside down because it means all the luck is spilling out, so its actually bad luck, Halsey explained re: her boldest tattoo. I got an upside-down horseshoe to signify that I dont need luck. Bad. Ass.

This is another tattoo Halsey got with her mom, and its super special to her. Serendipity is a word that means a happy accident, she told iHeart. Which is I think how my mom explains my existence, as a happy accident, because she was 19 when she got pregnant with me and it was definitely an accident. But one that I think she considers a happy one.

The Crazy Kind

Awkward, but the crazy kind is most definitely a reference to lyrics from Halsey and her ex-boyfriend G-Eazys song Him & I.

Her G-Eazy Cover-Up

And, um, she definitely covered it up with barbed wire after they broke up.

Her 511 Elbow Tat

Get ready to awww, because 5/11 is Halseys little brothers birthday. Also, LOL @ this: It also used to be my password to stuff, and it occurred to me how awful it was that I was walking around with my password to everything literally tattooed on my body.

These Bomb Air Jordans

Halsey deleted this tattoo pic from Instagram but described it as chi town / hybrid baby in the caption.

*immediately checks to see if she has an endorsement deal with Nike*

Kay, so these Xs are both a reference to Halseys grandma and a reference to people viewing her music as explicit. Kind of a weird combo, but okay!
