Alia Shawkat Tattoo List
Alia Shawkat is an American actress. She is famous for her character playing as Maeby Fünke in the Emmy Awards winning TV show Arrested Development as well as Gertie Michaels in the horror/ comedy movie The Final Girls.
Alia Shawkat Tattoo Shoulder
On the back of Alia’s left shoulder, on her shoulder blade, is a black, script tattoo that reads “Mister Baby”. The ink refers to a character in the movie Mystery Train directed by Jim Jarmusch in 1989. The movie follows three separate story lines that meet in a Memphis Hotel, including one of a girl. She teases her hair and wears a leather jacket that reads “Mister Baby” in red on the back in a fashion very reminiscent of the 1980s.
Alia Shawkat Tattoos Arm
On Alia’s right forearm she has a small, simple, black ink of an acorn, the bottom half of which is enclosed in a triangle. On her opposite arm, in the same place, is the same simple style tattoo depicting the animated character Mister Jones.
Similar to her left forearm
Alia Shawkat Tattoo Chest
In the same strain as her left forearm, on the front of Alia’s left shoulder, just above her collar bone, is a small tattoo of Mister Jones once more. The tattoo’s simplicity makes it very cute. The tattoo is made up of simple black lines so it has a resemblance to a simple pen drawing or newspaper comic, which is very fitting for an animated character.
All of Alia Shawkat tattoos call on a very simple style that seems very fitting for her and to her personality. The placement of the ink is very well planned, especially the ones on the inside of her forearms. Using only black ink is also another reasons these ink pieces work so well, as multiple colors would take away from some of the simplicity that they boast.
