To say that Asia Argento tattoos are intoxicating would be an understatement. Aside from the fact that she’s stunning, her ink just takes her to a whole new level. Born September 20th, 1975, Aria Asia Anna Maria Vittoria Rossa Argento is a model, actress, singer, director and in case you can’t guess by the name, she’s also Italian.
With how lonely she was as a child, no one could have predicted that the collection of Asia Argento tattoos would cause her to have such a huge and loyal fan base. At birth, her father was a director and her mother an actress, both who kept incredibly busy.
Argento says she was quite depressed as a child, she would read and write to make up for her lack of friends. By the age of eight, she published her own book of poems and at 14 she ran away.
Today she’s mainly known for her roles in XXX, Land of the Dead and Marie Antoinette. Not to mention, she’s directed music videos, documentaries and films, written a novel, has won several awards and she’s a DJ.
Asia Argento Tattoos
Angel – One of the most well-known and most artistic pieces in the collection of Asia Argento tattoos is the angel that drapes across her abdomen with exquisite detail. The figure is taken from a piece done by Delvaux, a Belgian painter and Argento added the wings. She says she only chose this location because she was trying to hide it from her father. When she finally showed him three years later, he said she could go work in a circus now as a tattooed wonder.
Eye – This is the piece that started the collection of Asia Argento tattoos. She was 14 and on her first trip to Amsterdam (could be when she ran away). The tattoo is on her shoulder and she was so high she couldn’t decide what kind of eye she wanted or where to put it but the tattooist was very patient with her.
Snakes and Sun – Directly over her butt is where you will find the next one on the list of Asia Argento tattoos. The two snakes were completed when she was 16, shooting Trauma in Minneapolis. The sun was added later when she was 17. There is not a symbolic meaning to the piece, she simply saw the snakes in Rome on a statue of Medusa and was intrigued.
Anna – The name Anna is written on her ribs. This tattoo is a tribute to her deceased sister.
23 – Next on the list of Anna Argento tattoos is the number 23 on the back of her neck. Simply put, this is her lucky number, she was unaware of the mystical properties that the number offers.
Others – Asia also has an M, the Ministry logo, a band she has always loved as well as a small cross on her left wrist.
