Born the 20th of March of 1986, Ruby Rose is one of the most attractive celebrities in the world. She is a model, DJ, VJ, TV presenter and an actress. She is famous for her many talents and also her many, many tattoos. There are so many tattoos on her body that many of them blend into a single one. According to reliable sources, she has got a whopping 48 tattoos on her body, all acquired at different times in her life. True, she had a head start since she started at a very early age. Her first tattoo was acquired at the age of 16. It was a rose tattoo in the middle of her lower back.

Speaking of her tattoos, most of her tattoos are illustrative and cartoony style, although she also has a Japanese style tattoo on her right upper arm. There is a tattoo of three cards which is especially prominent since it is placed on the left side of her chest while the other side is bare. Adjacent to this, on the inside of her left arm a picture of a woman has been tattooed, On her right side, a little below the rib cage, lyrics from a song sung by the heavy metal band Metallica are inked. In February of 2011 she also got a line from another song tattooed on her neck. The song is Breathe Me by her close friend, Sia Furler.

Her right arm and right shoulder have had the distinct honor of playing canvas to the legendary Rhys Gordon. He inked Japanese imagery on her arm and boxing gloves on her right shoulder blade. These boxing gloves are symbolic, as her godfather was the famous boxer Lionel Rose. It was as a tribute to him that she got this tattoo on 21st may 2011. On November 2012 she had the words ‘The Thorn’ and two lightning bolts added to the tattoo of the boxing gloves.

On her left shoulder blade there is a tattoo of a heart and a banner, which reads Phoebe + Ruby. This is in reference to her fiancée at that time, Phoebe Dahl who is the granddaughter of the famous children’s author, Roald Dahl. Sadly, the two are no longer together but Ruby has not yet attempted to have the tattoo removed. Speaking of having tattoos removed, she had a unicorn tattoo on her thigh which she got in 2012. She underwent laser treatment to have it removed in 2015.
