Lady Gaga Tattoos
Lady Gaga’s Tattoo Count: 21! Check Them Out…
Curious why all of Lady Gaga’s tattoos (actually, all of her body tattoos) are inked only on the left side of her body? It’s because Gaga is a self-professed daddy’s girl and she is honoring her dad’s request to keep one side of her body “slightly normal.” Because of this, Gaga only has tattoos on the left side of her body; the right side is completely clean. Gaga actually refers to the left side of her body as her “Iggy Pop side” and the right side of her body as her “Marilyn Monroe side.”
