Iggy Azalea Tattoos
Iggy Azalea Tattoo Count: 6! Check Them Out…
A comprehensive collection of Iggy Azalea’s tattoos, their meanings, and lots of pictures! Iggy Azalea may be a household name these days, but her rise to the top was anything but easy. The singer began her ascent at the young age of 16, when she left her family behind and moved to the United States from her birthplace of Australia, in search of a career in hip hop, living in areas like Miami, Atlanta and Houston, and developing her own style of rap based on Southern American influences. It wasn’t until she moved to Los Angeles and finally launched her career in 2010, that Iggy Azalea (born Amethyst Amelia Kelly) got her first tattoo, and it’s been an addiction for her ever since. Read on to learn all about Iggy Azalea’s tattoos and their awesome meanings!

At GQ’s Men of the Year Awards in November 2016, Iggy Azalea shocked everyone by showing up with a brand-new tattoo sleeve covering her right arm, depicting what appears to be a bird and some flowers. It’s possible that Iggy covered up some of her other arm tattoos, or simply incorporated them into the new sleeve.
In August 2016, Iggy Azalea went under the needle for a new tattoo on her right forearm depicting a blindfolded horse, done in a black a gray “etching” style of inking. Iggy’s horse tattoo was inked by Sean Smith of American Electric Tattoo Company in Los Angeles, California.
Iggy Azalea has a cool tattoo inked on the outside of her right foot in a black script font that reads “Colour Me Free,” a nod to English recording artist Joss Stone’s fourth studio album by the same name. Iggy hasn’t explained the specific meaning behind her “Colour Me Free” foot tattoo, but we have a feeling that the ink represents the freedom Iggy felt when she moved to the U.S. to pursue a career in hip hop, saying she was afraid of being “unhappy and stuck” if she stayed with her family in Australia.
In November 2012, Iggy Azalea covered up the flower tattoo on her right wrist with a large portrait tattoo featuring the Roman goddess of love and fertility, Venus. Iggy’s Venus tattoo is inked on the inside of her right forearm and wrist, and was inspired by Sandro Boticelli’s famous 1486 painting “The Birth of Venus.” Iggy says her Birth of Venus tattoo is “Disney-fied,” meaning the goddess is more cartoonish in her tat than in the original painting, and that it covered up her “old, ugly” flower tattoo.
Back in 2011, when Iggy Azalea was dating Harlem emcee A$AP Rocky, she got three tattoos on her fingers that read “LIVE,” “LOVE,” and “A$AP” in honor of her then-boyfriend’s mixtape by the same name. Iggy’s “LIVE.LOVE.A$AP.” tattoos are inked on the middle, ring and pinkie fingers of her left hand, and the “A$AP” portion of the tattoo now has a black X inked over it…something Iggy added after the couple called it quits in 2012.
Around the same time Iggy Azalea got her “LIVE.LOVE.A$AP” finger tattoos, the singer added three additional tattoos to the middle, ring and pinkie fingers of her right hand, reading “The New Classic” in a black script font. Iggy’s “The New Classic” tattoo was meant as a tribute to her own major-label debut album by the same name, which was inspired by Iggy’s belief that the “new style” she presents in her music will soon become legendary, or classic.
One of Iggy Azalea’s first tattoos was a spontaneous decision she made 20 minutes after seeing the phrase “Trust Your Struggle” written on a wall she was driving past. Iggy’s “Trust Your Struggle” tattoo is inked in black on the outside edge of her right forearm, just above her wrist, and holds an important meaning for the rapper, who had to work hard to get where she is today and says she has “lived the struggle for a long time.” It reminds her to never give up, no matter how tough a time she is having.
Before covering it up with her Boticelli “Birth of Venus” portrait tattoo, Iggy Azalea had a small pink and green flower tattoo inked on the side of her right wrist. Iggy says her flower wrist tattoo was “old” and “ugly,” but there had to have been a reason she decided to get the ink, right? We have a feeling the flower in Iggy’s tattoo was an azalea, which is the name of the street she grew up on in Australia, and where she took the second part of her stage name from.
