Is the beautiful and talented rapper “Iggy” addicted to tattoos? We take a look at the true meaning behind 6 Iggy Azalea Tattoos.

The beautiful and talented Iggy Azalea seems to be on top of the world right now (and on top of the charts), but life hasn’t always been easy for the Australian-born rapper.

Iggy Azalea’s tattoos play a huge role in her life. She got her first tattoo back in 2010 and has been addicted ever since. So let’s take a look at the 6 Iggy Azalea Tattoos…

1. Iggy’s covered-up flower wrist tatt

Iggy’s wrist tattoo is now covered up with her Botticelli “Birth of Venus” portrait tattoo. But before deciding to cover it up, Iggy Azalea had a small pink and green flower on her right wrist.

Iggy says the reason for covering the flower is that it was “old” and “ugly.” Whether that’s the real reason…we’ll never know.

2. Iggy’s “New Classic“ fingers


The big-bum rapper has three additional tattoos on the middle, ring & pinkie fingers of her right hand, which reads “The New Classic”.

“The New Classic” tattoo represents her debut album, which is also called “The New Classic” (we love that album).

The name “The New Classic” was inspired by Iggy’s new style and the uniqueness both herself and her music represent. Iggy believes her music will soon become legendary or “classic.”


So, in addition to Iggy’s “The New Classic” finger tattoos, she also has “LIVE,” “LOVE,” and “A$AP” inked on the middle, ring and pinkie fingers of her left hand.

Back in 2011, Iggy Azalea was dating Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky. Obviously, this is when Iggy got the three tatts, honouring the name of A$AP’s mixtape “LIVE.LOVE.A$AP”.

When Iggy and “A$AP” Rocky split in 2012, she covered the “A$AP” portion of her tattoo with a black X.

4. Iggy Azalea’s “Colour Me Free“ foot tattoo

On Iggy’s right foot, she has a really cool tattoo inked, which reads “Colour Me Free”.

We don’t actually know the specific meaning behind Iggy’s “Colour Me Free” foot tattoo. However, an educated guess would be it symbolising the freedom and fresh start Iggy experienced when she moved to the U.S. in pursuit of a career as a hip hop artist.

“Colour Me Free” is also the same name as to recording artist Joss Stone’s fourth studio album…coincidence? 

5. Trust Your Struggle

Iggy’s “Trust Your Struggle” tattoo is inked in black and is located on the outside of her right forearm (just above her wrist). This was one of Iggy Azalea’s first tattoos, and it holds important meaning.

Despite her spontaneous 20-minute decision to get this tattoo, the tattoo represents the “Struggle” and hard work it took to get where she is today. The hip-hop rapper says she has “lived the struggle for a long time.”

“Trust Your Struggle” is an important reminder of her hard work and dedication.

6. Roman Goddess of Love and Fertility

As we mentioned above, Iggy covered up the original flower tattoo, which was located on her right arm. The “Fancy” rapping artists covered the flower with a large portrait tattoo of the Roman goddess of love & fertility, Venus.

Iggy’s Venus tattoo was inspired by Sandro Boticelli’s famous 1486 painting, “The Birth of Venus.” Iggy says her inked version of the painting is “Disney-fied”, meaning it’s more cartoonish-looking than the original.
