Cara Delevingne Tattoos & Meanings – The Complete Guide
Cara Delevingne has been bit by the tattoo bug in a big way, starting in 2013 what has proven to be a pretty impressive tattoo collection. Once she got that awesome lion tat inked on her finger in May 2013, she was hooked for life, and, with a best friend like Rihanna, who is famous for her tattoo obsession, we can’t help but think Cara will find herself under the needle many more times in the future.

1. Detailed lion face tattoo on the top of Cara Delevingne’s right-hand index finger
Not only was Cara Delevingne’s lion tattoo her first-ever tat, but it was also the moment the British fashion model realized how much she loved getting inked. Cara’s tattoo, which was done by the infamous Bang Bang, features the detailed face of a lion inked in black and white on the lower section of her index finger. Since debuting the impressive lion finger tattoo in May 2013, Cara has gone on to add many more tats to her collection, and says she plans on getting “loads” more tattoos in the future.
