- Lourdes Leon has 11 known tattoos so far.
- She has a handful of designs scattered along her arms, fingers, and chest.
- Some tattoos are tributes to her family, while others are more elusive.
Leon Lourdes “Lola” Leon’s rebellious sense of beauty has been all over her latest public appearances. From her latest campaigns for Calvin Klein and Swarovski to Kim Kardashian‘s Skims Swim pop-up shop celebration and the Versace Runway at Spring/Summer 2022 Milan Fashion Week, Leon is unafraid to draw attention to her body hair or her stark black tattoos.
The model, actor, and daughter of Madonna and Carlos has spoken openly about wanting to be known for more than her looks and is hoping to change the fashion industry so models can take control of their choices – and that extends to her collection of body art.
Leon first made tabloid headlines when she got her first tattoo at the age of 19, and she continued with 10 more pieces over the course of 6 years. She debuted her latest tattoo in March 2022: the word “divina” (the Spanish word for “divine”) in a block font, inked high on the back of her upper left thigh with two simple stars. Many have speculated that the tattoo is a nod to her Cuban roots, but that is not certain. While many of her designs are more obvious, she has been surprisingly mum about many of her tattoos.
Still, we’ve rounded up Leon’s collection of bold tattoos and their meanings ahead.
