The Meaning Behind Barbie Ferreira's Hidden Tattoos

- The ink holds a special significance to the actor centered on body acceptance and self-love.
After a two-plus-year hiatus, Euphoria is finally back for season two, and the hype around the cast is bigger than ever. One character who's earned rave reviews for her makeup prowess (and lessons in empowerment) is fanfic-churning Kat Hernandez, leading to an even bigger interest in Barbie Ferreira, the actor who plays her. While we know that Ferreira had a modeling career that led her into the acting world and that her online social media presence showcases body positivity in all its glory, one thing we rarely see on her Instagram grid is her newish collection of hidden tattoos.
In a recent interview with Allure, Ferreira opened up about her anxiety in light of the global pandemic. In addition to the work she did on herself "that I would not have done if I wasn't paused," she also did the unexpected and got some DIY ink. Living at her newly purchased LA home with her three cats — Mortimer, Magdalena, and Thomas — and partner, musician Elle Puckett, Ferreira told the publication: "I was like, 'F*ck it. I can't die and not have tattoos.'"
While her designs aren't very readily visible because of their placements (one tattoo is on her butt and the other two are her side), each one has a fun backstory that's well worth the read. Keep scrolling to see what we mean ahead.
