It’s nearly impossible to not fall in love with Ellie Goulding.  In addition to be being both sexy and cute, she has such a wonderful, angelic voice.  She also continues to display a growing love of body art.  The “Burn” singer had already shown off two cute ink pieces.  The first was a little red triangle on her right wrist (which just represents her love of triangles…. so, the Illuminati conspiracy theorists can chill out).  The second was a white ink arrow on her right index finger (which she got while filming the music video for “I Need Your Love” and included it in the video.)

Since the last “New 2 Tats” feature on Ellie, the British songstress has continued her high-energy music career, with numerous tour stops while staying committed to her running and recording.  She has also scored the featured track on the soundtrack for the movie “Divergent”.  The song is called “Beating Heart”.

Now, on to Ellie’s new tattoos.  The first new one (her third) is another red ink tattoo.  This time it is on her left wrist.  It is a Tibetan mantra that reads “Om mani padme hum”, which means “jewel of the lotus”.

EllieG_Update3_Tat05EllieG_Update3_Tat01Tattoo #4 stayed with the lotus theme, and showed Ellie getting much bolder with her body art.  This time, she got a black ink lotus flower on her right rib cage.  This is an extraordinarily well designed tattoo and it fits Ellie beautifully.

EllieG_Update3_Tat03EllieG_Update3_Tat04EllieG_Update3_Tat02Ellie’s most recent work was done by Dr. Woo from the Shamrock Social Club.  Dr. Woo’s stellar work is gaining such notoriety that he recently got his own feature in Buzzfeed.

We certainly haven’t heard the last of Ellie’s incredible voice.  I suspect we also have not witnessed the last of her body art.  As she continues to get inked, “New 2 Tats” will continue to feature it.

Hottie Ink Update (Songstress Edition): Foxes and Ellie Goulding

One of the immutable truths of maintaining a blog about tattoos, is that there will always be new tattoos to showcase on people who have already been featured.  This is also one of the benefits.  In some cases, like Janel Parrish, they have so many tattoos that an initial post could not highlight all of them.  In other cases, like Selena Gomez, new tattoos are added over time and require their own feature.  In this post, singers Foxes and Ellie Goulding are featured with new ink.


Original feature:

Foxes_Pic04    Foxes (Louisa Rose Allen) is the quirky, sexy singer who has been dominating the airwaves (and iPod playlists) in 2013 as the vocalist in “Clarity”, an amazingly passionate song engineered by EDM stalwart Zedd.  She also released an EP, containing haunting tracks like “White Coats”.  In her original “New 2 Tats” feature, we highlighted the only known tattoo Foxes had at the time, a little heart on her right wrist.

Foxes_Tat01    Since then, a new tattoo has been spotted.  On the outside of her left ankle (determined to be the left because it’s a reverse image in a mirror), Foxes has a crescent moon visible.

Ellie Goulding

Original feature:

EG_Pic1    If you were to look up ‘adorable’ in the encyclopedia, the first entry you would find would be British singer Ellie Goulding (Ariana Grande would be the second entry).  When she was featured initially, Ellie was already a breakout star with songs like “Starry Eyed” and “Lights”.  At the time, she had a single tattoo, of a red triangle, on her right wrist (triangles being an obsession of hers).

EG_Tat1    Since her first feature, Ellie has continued her occupation of the upper reaches of the Billboard Hot 100 with such popular songs as “I Need Your Love (with Calvin Harris)” and “Burn”.  She has also added a new piece of ink.  It is a white ink tattoo of an arrow on her index finger.  She showed the work being done in the music video for “I Need Your Love”.  (It’s hard to tell if it is on her left or right hand, because the video makes it look like it is being applied to the left, but her Instagram photo makes it look like it’s on the right).

Celebrity Tattoo of the Day: Lyndsy Fonseca

The young, and restless, Lyndsy Fonseca, has been acting just about her entire life in a vast array of roles.  To look at the enternally youthful-looking Fonseca, you would probably guess that she would only be performing in soap operas and romantic comedies.  You would be wrong.

While Lyndsy did get her start on the daytime soap “The Young and the Restless” (where New 2 Tats darling, Haley King, is currently starring) as the young Colleen Carlton (daughter of Victor Newman rival, Brad Carlton [yes, I know my soaps.  I have my mom to thank for that]), she has developed quite a diverse acting portfolio


Following her departure from daytime TV, Lyndsy snagged recurring roles in the hit shows “How I Met Your Mother”, and “Big Love” (where she played one of Sarah Henrickson’s snooty friends).

After that, Lyndsy landed a role on the ABC mega-hit “Desparate Housewives”, playing the daughter of Dana Delany’s Katherine Mayfair.  She also made a splash in 2010 cult film “Kick Ass” (where she will be reprising her role in the 2013 sequel), before landing her highest profile role to date of Russian-born spy, Alexandra Udinov, in the CW show “Nikita” (which is a re-imagining of the film and tv show “La Femme Nikita”)

Like her “Nikita” co-star, Maggie Q (who may be featured at some point), Lyndsy does like tattoos.  I was able to find four pieces of body art that she displays.  She has an inverted pyramid design on inside of her right ankle (these pictures show it up close and from a distance)

Another one of her tattoos is this incredibly cute crescent moon/star design behind her right ear:

Another one that gets seen frequently is the word “Fe” is a stylized script on her left wrist.  It means ‘faith’ in Portugese, which makes sense since Lyndsy is of Portugese descent.

Her final, regularly visible, tattoo (though she has hinted at others), is her sister’s name written in Hebrew on her upper right forearm.

Lyndsy’s body art is very cute, meaningful, and feminine.  All great qualities for female tattoos :-).

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

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:
