Super-versatile Cassie Ventura is a talented dancer, actress, model and R & B singer, (and close personal friend of Diddy), who has 9 tattoos on show currently. So here’s a gorgeous gallery of Cassie tattoos and what they all mean!
Cassie tattoos – Cute small star tattoo
On her left hip, there’s a cute, little star tattoo, outlined in black and filled-in with red ink to celebrate her status as a hip-hop ‘star’!
This small, black Chinese dragon on her left ankle is a traditional addition to Cassie’s tattoos and a great way to draw attention to a pair of well-shaped ankles!
Things can only get better!
On the right side of her ribcage, Cassie has chosen an uplifting Latin phrase:
Post tenebras lux
This means ‘after the darkness comes the light’, and refers to positive-thinking phrases meant to encourage us when we feel overwhelmed by life e.g. ‘There’s always light at the end of the tunnel.’
It’s also the title of an ‘art-house’ film by the director, Carlos Reygadas, released in 2012. And in the Christian bible it’s a phrase spoken by Job, who has lots of problems to deal with, translated as, ‘After darkness, I hope for light.’
Cassie tattoos – romantic
Cassie tattoos in other languages include the French word for ‘love’. The romantic sounding, ‘Amour’ is written in an attractive vertical curve discreetly placed behind her right ear, cleverly following the ear’s outline!
Cassie tattoos – Egyptian hieroglyphs
This dainty ancient Egyptian Ankh hieroglyph means, ‘life’. The ankh shape is solid black
and resembles a Christian cross, but with a vertical, loop-shape above the ‘arms’. Placed on the nape of the neck, Cassie’s ankh tattoo is usually covered by her long hair.
Cassie tattoos and the mystery of the tattooed bum!
Cassie’s tats also include three lines of writing on her right buttock, but we don’t know exactly what it says! Apparently, the top two lines say, ‘Made from . . . ‘, so if anyone finds out what Cassie’s bum tattoo says, please let us know!
Cassie’s white tattoo
This very unusual white tattoo saying, ‘No Regrets’, is also discreet, but beautifully executed in a cursive, handwriting style. It adds a fresh, modern look to Cassie tattoos.
The phrase, ‘No regrets’, also carries with it the idea of a person who is confident within and accepts that although we all make mistakes in life, they know they’ve always done their best!
Cassie’s surname tattoo
On her right inner-arm, there’s a fancy, black letter, ‘V’, which stands for Cassie’s surname – Ventura.
On the wings of love
And this playful, ‘winged heart’, done in greyscale is tattooed on the inside of Cassie’s left wrist. In tattoo symbolism, the ‘winged heart’ can be a symbol of happiness, or being in love and generally represents a positive, optimistic outlook on life!
