From a daring nipple piercing, to a suspiciously fuller pout to matching BFF tattoos with BFF Hailey Baldwin – the 22-year-old model is forever experimenting with her image and tbh, we are all for it.
Despite being adamant that she wasn’t going to get a tattoo full stop, like older sister Kim Kardashian (who described it as ‘putting a bumper sticker on a Bentley!’) Kendall got ‘over her fear of forever’ and eased herself in with the most adorable skin art!
But which tattoos has Kendall Jenner actually have? Who is the celebrity tattooist on speed dial? What do the they even mean?
Sit back and relax, because here is Kendall Jenner’s tattoo guide in it’s full glory.
What tattoos does Kendall Jenner have?
- A small dot on her finger
- A heart on her finger
- ‘Meow’ written on the inside of her
Who is Kendall Jenner’s tattoo artist?
New York City-based JonBoy is the celebrity tattooist behind Kendall’s skin art. He works at West 4 Tattoo in NYC and his speciality is minimalist (yet beautiful!) tattoos and prides his design on being unique and feminine.
His most famous clients are Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner, though we predict it won’t be long until he’s one of the most sought out celebrity tattoo artists in the biz.
A guide to Kendall Jenner’s tattoos:
Want to see them IRL? ‘Course you do! Here are the star’s three tattoos explained…
Kendall’s first-ever tattoo – a tiny white dot
The professional clothes-wearer opted for a low-key tattoo for her first time, which is very sensible if we do say so ourselves. It’s quite hard to regret a small white dot on your finger, when you’re 85, isn’t it.
What does the tiny white dot tattoo mean?
JonBoy revealed the reasoning behind the minimalist tatt during an interview with Refinery 29:
“I don’t really [have interesting stories] other than tattooing Kendall Jenner and putting a little white dot on her,” said JonBoy. “That was different for me, but at the same time, that’s what she wanted. So that’s what I’m going to give her.”
Er, so why did Kenny choose a little white dot? JonBoy explained, “To her, it’s the little things that matter. The white color was because she didn’t want it to show with modeling and all that. It was a fun night. Hailey Baldwin was there, too, and I’ve tattooed her a few times; she’s tattooed me as well.”
Tatt sounds… fun.
Kendall Jenner’s friendship heart tattoo with Hailey Baldwin
A way to show your commitment to your best pal used to be a little more low-maintenance, however, Kendall and Hailey Baldwin raised the bar and got their actual skin permanently etched as a symbol of their friendship.
Yep, you heard right. A ‘hope you’re okay?’ and a last-minute dinner plan is no longer going to cut it.
Kendall, who is a huge fan of discreet white ink, had an ‘invisible’ broken heart inked on the inside of her middle finger on her left hand, in August 2015.
BFF Hailey Baldwin had a matching tattoo in red, during the same session.
What does the broken heart tattoos mean?
Kendall Jenner didn’t reveal the reason for her broken heart tattoo until April 2016, when she finally put fans out of their misery and posted the interesting meaning on her website.
She explained that her matching broken heart tattoo with Hailey Baldwin was meant to represent her “devil side,” compared to Kendall’s full heart tattoo, which symbolizes an angel.
Kendall Jenner’s lip tattoo
Kendall wasn’t going to stop at a few hand tattoos, especially as she admitted in a previous interview that she ‘loves getting fresh ink’.
She got her most edgy tattoo just a few months later in July 2016: where she got the word ‘meow’ stamped on the inside of her bottom of her lip.
Why did Kendall get a lip tattoo? What does it mean?
Just because, apparently! “There’s no real meaning behind it,” Kenny wrote on her blog after JonBoy posted a photo of his art on Instagram. “I just wanted to be able to say that I have a tattoo ‘on my face!'”
Kris Jenner wasn’t happy with the lip tattoo. Kenny admitted, ‘All my sisters knew…but my mom found out late and freaked out about it,’
Well, it is a tattoo on your lip, Kendall!

Will Kendall Jenner get any more tattoos in the future?
She’s planning on it, that’s for sure! The model of the moment said in a blog post, ‘I definitely want more eventually, I just don’t know what I would get right now. I don’t have anything in mind. You’ll just have to wait and see!”
We’re real excited to see what tattoo Kenny gets next…
