Kristen Stewart’s Tattoos: A Deep Dive into her Artistic Expressions

A young star Kristen Stewart has tattoos only on her arms.

Each wrist of the celebrity is decorated with a tattoo. There are four stripes on the left wrist. There is a small symbol of infinity, which the actress inked in the North American city of Nashville, on the right wrist.

Four small stripes are the first tattoo of the star of “Twilight”. She inked this tattoo during a road trip with her friend Scout Taylor Compton. In early April 2013, girls were driving by the city of El Paso in Texas. They dropped in “Sun City Tattoo” parlor, where Kristen inked her first tattoo.

The actress doesn’t reveal the meaning of the tattoo on her left arm.


There are several opinions about what this tattoo means for Kristen Stewart:

  • four stripes are a symbol of punk band Black Flag that was popular in 1970s;
  • the number of stripes is equal to the years of a long-term romance with the movie actor Robert Pattinson, the break up with whom was very hard to live through for the actress.

In the same year, Kristen inked her second tattoo on the other wrist, while traveling in summer through the territory of the United States with her friends. The tattoo is located pretty close to the palm. It is worth noting that all four friends inked exactly the same tattoos as Stuart in “Pride & Glor” parlor.


The celebrity decided to make the third tattoo after shooting the movie “Clouds of Sils Maria”. Kristen’s heroine had a tattoo in the form of a light bulb from the painting of the famous Spanish artist Picasso “Guernica” on her right forearm. Kristen notes that she got used to it, so she decided to make a real tattoo after shooting.


The founder of Cubism implied an interesting meaning in it. The tattoo depicts a light bulb, which the artist considered to be a symbol of the modern progress of science and technology, which was connected with the development of society. At the same time, the bulb is the symbol of a bomb, that is, a weapon of mass destruction used in world conflicts and wars.

The artist used the image of a light bulb to remind humanity that God is watching everything and sees everything. This picture is a heartfelt protest against war and violence. Perhaps, the role of Kristen Stewart’s heroine echoes the questions raised by the great artist, thus, a special meaning is implied by the tattoo.

The star’s fourth tattoo appeared in late 2014. Kristen hasn’t revealed its meaning yet, like her friend Alicia Cargile, who has exactly the same tattoo.


Kristen Stewart grew up in a family, members of which like to ink their bodies. The star of “Twilight” will most likely ink new tattoos in the future.
