Welcome to the Emma Chamberlain tattoo tour, first stop inspo...

While she's known for her impeccable sense of style—case in point, her summer uniform—Emma Chamberlain's tattoos deserve their own spotlight moment because they're as meaningful as they are chic.

Along with Emma's sunglasses, the YouTuber-turned-fashionista has curated quite the image for herself—from her 90s fashion-inspired outfits, right down to her micro tattoos—and as any fan of Emma will know, her cute inks encapsulate everything well...Emma.  

In fact, her collection actually features a ton of meaningful tattoos and like Kendall Jenner's tattoos, Emma's inks are all small, simple illustrations. This means they're perfect inspo for tattoo first-timers or anyone who just wants a cute, Emma-approved tat. So, let's embark on the Emma Chamberlain tattoo tour, shall we?

Does Emma Chamberlain have tattoos?

Well, this would be a very short article if she didn't!

Sheer dress and Adidas Samba-loving Emma actually has around 18 tattoos (she, herself is hazy on the exact number) spread across both of her arms.

Emma's tattoo artist, Dima also revealed in an Insta post that Emma actually got eight of her tattoos done in one sitting. So, if you've also got a multi-tattoo vision for your body, this is definitely one way to get them done quickly but...ouch.

Emma Chamberlain's tattoo meanings

So, what are Emma Chamblerain's tattoos? Well, Emma's boyfriend, Role Model (aka Tucker Pillsbury) actually reeled off a list of her 18-something inks during their GQ Couples quiz video and even shared the meanings behind them.

He revealed that she actually has an arm of tattoos for each parent. Her right arm is reserved for her dad, where she has paintbrushes (because he's a painter), his car, a lighthouse, the number 11, a "doodle" (sorry, Tucker didn't go into more detail about that one!) and lastly, the nickname he calls her.

Her left arm is all about her mom (or "mommy" IYKYK) and includes a button tattoo, a pine tree and horseshoe on a stamp, her mom's nickname for her, "biggie big"—who we think is the name of her stuffed rabbit toy tat—and a scroll.

She also has a drawing of a girl holding a head, a pyramid—which could be the doodle Tucker mentioned—as well as a squirrel.

Now we're also hoping she adds a nod to her coffee company somewhere or even her podcast Anything Goes but until then, that concludes the tour folks!
