Celebrity Tattoo of the Day: Norah Jones

NorahJ_Pic02   Norah Jones is another one of those celebrities who really needs no introduction.  She burst onto the scene in 2002 with her multiple Grammy-winning debut album, “Come Away With Me”, and struck a chord with new audiences in a surprisingly comedic and self-deprecating cameo in the 2012 comedy hit, “Ted”.

   Beginning with “Come Away With Me”, Norah firmly established herself in the airy, light rock genre.  Her easy, relaxing melodies had an enormous appeal when she debuted, resulting in winning a stunning 7 Grammy Awards that year! (Her ‘Album of the Year’ award was considered something of an upset, as she was going up against Bruce Springsteen’s therapeutic post-9/11 album, “The Rising”).

   While Norah has not managed to achieve the same supernova success of “Come Away With Me” (and, to be honest, it’s not reasonable to think that anyone could), she has continued to release successful albums, have one well-attended concert tour after another, and even add another 4 Grammy Awards to her collection.

    Another fascinating (and well-documented) part of Norah Jones’ life is that she is the daughter of legendary Indian sitar player, Ravi Shankar (she chose to take her mother’s, Sue Jones, last name)

   One thing that fans noticed in “Ted” is that Norah does sport some body art.  As of right now, I know of two tattoo designs she has.  Her first tattoo is a blazing sun design she got on her lower back.  She got this done along with her half-sister, sitar player Anoushka Shankar.  So, there is an undeniable special meaning between sisters

   Her second tattoo, and the one noticeable in “Ted”, is a sanskrit inscription with an ‘all-seeing’ eye illustration below her right wrist.  These photos show it up close and also show it as she performs
