Tattoos are the most popular form of body art. They are the emerging trend as more and more people choose to flaunt their tastes on their skin in the form of quotes, designs, images or simple symbols. They are created by injecting bio ink in the epidermis layer of the skin, that lies just below the surface layer. They may fade with time, but are otherwise permanent and their removal requires surgical procedures.

Amy Winehouse Tattoo Designs

Amy Jade Winehouse was a singer and songwriter whose genre of music included jazz, soul, R&B and reggae.  She is known for her stunning vocals and her 2006 album, Back to Black earned five 2008 Grammy Awards. This tied her at the record for the most number of Grammys won by a female vocalist for one album. This also made her the first British female to win five Grammys. Born on 14th September 1983, she passed away on 23rd July 2011 at the age of 27. She was famous for her multiple body tattoos.

Given below are her ten famous Amy Winehouse tattoos:

1. Twin Hearts Tattoo Design:
