Since getting married to American rapper Jay-Z, pop star Beyoncé Knowles has been seen with a glamorous ring covering her finger tattoo. The tattoo is the Roman numerals “IV” and it is exactly the same as Jay-Z’s finger tattoo. This symbol has been interpreted to mean “forever” but others say that it represents the day number of when they were both born. Jay-Z, who’s real name is Shawn Corey Carter, was born on December 4 whilst Beyoncé was born on September 4. They also got married (after the tattoos were made) on the day number 4 in April 2008.
Many other celebrities have finger tattoos. Future celebrity Levi Johnston, the partner of Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol, also has a finger tattoo. Recently he’s been wearing the word “Bristol” on his left ring finger.
Finger tattoos can hurt, especially when made close to the joint, they can be really painful for a while. If there are a number of colors involved they can fade much more than anywhere else on the body. However as they are always visible, fingers are a great location for a tattoo. Some have joined the craze of getting finger mustache tattoos. The “fingerstache” is a tattoo of a mustache like pattern on the index finger which looks like a mustache when the finger is held under the nose.
