Lady Gaga's 19 Tattoos With Their Meaning

The "Bad Romance" singer Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta aka Lady Gaga has inked a total of 19 wonderful tattoos on her body. Each of the tattoos on her body holds a different meaning and are drawn specifically.

Lady Gaga is not afraid of needles and is in love with body ink. Here is everything you need to know about her all tattoos:

Trebel Clef on Lower Back 

The first ever tattoo that the New York native got was of a Treble Clef on her lower back. She inked it when she was just 17 years old which is considered underage for having tattoos. She somehow managed to get the tattoo using a fake ID at that time. 

The treble clef symbolizes relationship and connection with music. We don't know why but the eminent star later on added a rose tattoo which symbolizes promise, new beginning and hope just beside the logo of music.

Daisies on the Shoulder 

Lady Gaga has has a combination of three daisy flowers tattooed on her left shoulder. She inked the tattoo back in 2008 and it symbolizes her innocence and purity. 

Peace Sign Tattoo

Gaga further said that the vision of equality and peace inspired her a lot and she decided to have the tattoo in order to pay John honor as he was assassinated.

The logo is upside down for viewers but it is inked correctly from the view of Lady Gaga. The tattoo makes her remember the important things in life and give priority to peace.

Tokyo Love 

Lady Gaga who is worth $320 million has tattooed a writing that says "TOKYO LOVE". She got the writing crafted on her back just beside the daisies' tattoo. She got the tattoo in order to celebrate the collaboration of 'Haus of Gaga' with the legendary Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki with whom she did different photo shoot session. 

Araki had signed all the photographs "TOKYO LOVE" and Gaga had the tattoo with the exact same writing as the photographer.

The tattoo in English translates to

 "Confess to yourself in the deepest hour of the night whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write. Dig Deeper into your heart and ask yourself, Must I write? where the answer spreads its roots in being yourself."


It isn't surprising for Lady Gag who had the wheelchair made up of gold to have a tattoo inked on her body that is inspired by her fans. She has a tattoo that says "RIO" on the back of her neck where the alphabet 'I' is a cross symbol. She credits three of her fans' signatures for the font of her ink.

David Bowie Tattoo 

The eleven time Grammy winner has a portrait tattoo inked on the left side of her body, below the armpit. She was chosen to perform a tribute song to late David Bowie at the Grammy Awards 2016. So, the pop singer decided to pay honor to David in a permanent way. For this, she inked a portrait tattoo of Bowie inked on the left side of her body, below the armpit.

Lady Gaga decided to commemorate the music legend in the most permanent way which was by getting a portrait tattoo of the legend inked on her body.


The 'A Star Is Born' star has inked a date in the middle of the German tattoo we mentioned previously. The date is 12/18/1974 and is the date when her aunt Joanne passed away. So, the date means a lot to her emotionally.
