Celebrity Tattoo of the Day: Ellie Goulding

One of my new favorite singers is the breathy, English chanteuse, Ellie Goulding.

She first caught my attention with her ethereal video for her song “Starry Eyed”.  Her sweet voice and beautiful, innocent look was enchanting.  I should also add that, as a science fiction geek, the video made me think of the scene when Apollo and Starbuck were looking at the sky of ‘earth’ in Athena’s Temple in the amazing, reimagined “Battlestar Galactica”.  Here is that video:

While “Starry Eyed” didn’t make a big splash in the U.S. (not even charting on the Billboard Hot 100), her next single “Lights” was a huge hit.  Its drum-powered beats and club-inspired video allowed it to soar all the way to #2 on the Hot 100 in late August, only being denied the #1 slot by Carly Rae Jepsen’s omni-present “Call Me Maybe” and Flo-Rida’s “Whistle”.  Here is that video, as well:

Another fun fact about Ellie is that she is an avid runner.  During one of her concert tours, she had events at each tour stop where select fans could join her for one of her runs.  She also crafted her own ‘running mix’, which can be downloaded at the website http://ellieruns.com/

Ellie also enjoys a little bit of of body art.  In several interviews, she has expressed her appreciation for tattoos and ideas for ones she wants to get.  At the current time, her only known tattoo is a red triangle that appears on her right wrist.  While she admits the tattoo was a bit random, she is a big fan of triangles, and even includes them in her song “Wish I Stayed”.

Here are some photos of the adorable Ellie Goulding and her cute triangle tattoo:
