Lady Gaga Debuts 2 New Tattoos, Including a Rose Running Up Her Spinal Cord

As a Valentine’s Day surprise, Lady Gaga took to Instagram on Thursday (Feb. 14) to show fans some of her latest ink: a spinal cord tattoo of a rose with the words “la vie en rose” as well as a smaller tattoo of musical notes spelling out GAGA on her forearm.

The first photo shows off the singer-songwriter’s back for a full view of her thorned rose, which accompanies a few other tattoos she already had near her shoulder. “Happy Valentine’s Day,” the Grammy winner captioned the post. “A tattoo toast to 'la vie en rose' by the beautiful @winterstone my spinal cord is now a rose.” The tattoo is likely a tribute to her performance of the famous Edith Piaf song as her character Ally in A Star Is Born.

Just a few minutes later, Gaga shared yet another photo of the latest addition to her body art. “G A G A...and when you get a tattoo and you’re me you always have to get two,” the “Shallow” singer wrote in the caption. “Also by @winterstone and also a matching tattoo w my bestie and manager @wanaynay.” Later Thursday, Gaga posted an updated version of the music-note tattoo that added the fifth staff line.
