The Life Inspiration Behind Eliza Dushku Tattoos
Eliza Dushku tattoos are certainly unlike any others you have seen elsewhere on other celebrities. She was born in Massachusetts and raised as a Mormon though she does not actively practice the religion now. Eliza was discovered at the age of 10 after there was a 5-month long search to find someone to play alongside Juliette Lewis in That Night.
Since then, Eliza Dushku tattoos have surfaced through the years as she has played in Bring it On, Soul Survivors, City by the Seas, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Wrong Turn. Of course, Eliza is most well-known for playing Faith on the hit television show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
The role was initially meant to be five episodes but the character was so popular that it latest the whole third season, part of the fourth and continued on into Angel, a spin-off from the program. Other shows she has appeared in are King of the Hill, Punk’d, Tru Calling, That 70s Show, Reading Rainbow, Nurses, Ugly Betty, Dollhouse and The Big Bang Theory.
Eliza Dushku Tattoos
Although there are said to be six Eliza Dushku tattoos, her fans are still wondering where a few of them are. Since she has done her share of nude and nearly nude photos for various magazines some of the tattoos have to either be very well hidden or extremely new.
Back – One of the most well-known Eliza Dushku tattoos is the one she wears on her upper back. In 2006, she was personally invited by Sali Bensha, Albania’s Prime Minister to travel to Albania to visit her family on her father’s side. While she was there, she travelled to Kosovo where she got a tattoo of an Albanian eagle.
At first glance, it may look like a big black bug but it is actually double-headed eagle. This is one of the most meaningful Eliza Dushku tattoos as it symbolizes her love and respect for her Albanian roots. Although her father’s family still lives in Albania, he is a teacher and administrator for the Boston Public schools.
Side – One of the Eliza Dushku tattoos that raises the most questions is the script on her side that reads Lead Kindly Light. This was a hymn that she sang as a child with her mother as she was raised in the Mormon church. The hymn is from The Pillar of Cloud poem written by John Henry Newman in 1833.
Other Tattoos – While there are a few unknown Eliza Dushku tattoos, there is a cross tattoo that appears on the back of her ankle. Additionally, Kat Von D completed a symbolic feather on her ribs however, no one knows what it is symbolic of.
