As described by reporter Brittany Spanos, the singer got her own middle name, “Eilish,” in an “ornate, gothic font, in the middle of her chest.” (Her full legal name is Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell.)
However, Eilish herself has never debuted the design in public. In October 2020, she even told fans they “won’t ever see it.”
One year later, during a filmed interview with Vanity Fair, she confirmed the tattoo’s placement by pointing to the spot on her chest.
Of the design’s inspiration, she said simply: “Yes, I love myself.”
The ink made its first public appearance at the 2021 Met Gala, where Eilish wore an Oscar de la Renta gown with a thigh-high slit.
She has yet to explain the meaning behind the design, though she previously nicknamed her dream car “Dragon” — a matte-black Dodge Challenger that she got for her 17th birthday.
Fans were quick to notice fresh ink on the singer’s left hand, peeking out from under her sleeve. It appeared to be a fairy wing in all-black ink.
About one month later, she posted a close-up photo on her Instagram Story, revealing three distinct fairies on her hand and wrist.
Eilish described the design as “sweet little guardian angel fairies” based on her favorite childhood book. She confirmed in her annual interview with Vanity Fair, filmed on October 18, 2021, that she got the tattoo “a few weeks ago,” citing “Fairyopolis” by Cicely Mary Barker as the inspiration.
“No, I’m not gonna be all tatted up,” she added. “But I have some more ideas. Right now, I feel pretty satisfied.”
