The List of Keith Urban Tattoos is Growing
The collection of Keith Urban tattoos has recently been altered and added to and while some fans are happy with the change, others certainly are not. One thing that everyone can agree on though is that Keith Urban tattoos, for the most part, are personal and inspired by his life. This New Zealand born, popular country singer has released nine successful albums as well as one with his first band, The Ranch. Keith has had 10 number one hits and at least 15 singles on the country charts.
The newest addition to the list of Keith Urban tattoos appears to be a very large tribal sun on his chest. Though there have been no photos released yet of the entire piece fans have had a quick glance while he was wearing a button-down shirt. The sun is for his daughter, SUNday Rose Kidman Urban who was born on July 7th, 2008. This is the couple’s first child and although they have both said that they don’t want her photographed, pictures have leaked out.
One of the more recent Keith Urban tattoos that he showed off for the first time in front of an audience of millions is the word NICOLE on his upper right bicep. Keith was performing with Alicia Keys at Giants Stadium during the Live Earth New York show when he rolled up his sleeve and showed off this piece as a tribute to his wife, Nicole Kidman. The two were married June 25, 2006 after her split with Tom Cruise was final, who she coincidentally seems to bring up still in every interview.
Next on the list of Keith Urban tattoos is a script in Latin on his right wrist. The piece reads Omni Vincit Amor which means Love Conquers All. This tattoo has recently been altered as he felt it necessary to add NK, his wife’s initials to it. The original tattoo was done sometime between 2002 and 2004 when he was dating supermodel Niki Taylor. The couple got these matching tattoos together but he felt he needed to do something to personalize it for his current relationship.
The first piece in the collection of Keith Urban tattoos is an eagle he wears on his right shoulder that he got when he was 24. Being born and raised in New Zealand and Australia, Keith says he really didn’t feel free in his life until he moved to America. The eagle symbolizes freedom and it represents the United States.
The only colored piece in the collection of Keith Urban tattoos is the phoenix he wears on the inside of his left forearm. The phoenix is a suicidal bird who has the ability to be reborn from its own ashes.
This is a very powerful image. Keith has spent time in rehabilitation on more than one occasion so it is suggested that this meaningful piece on the list of Keith Urban tattoos represents him getting through a tough time in his life. For more see Celebrity Tattoos.
