Vanessa Hudgens has been steadily adding to her collection of tattoos, reaching a total of 10 by June 2021. This number may seem modest, especially when compared to her friends Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson, who boast at least 17 and around 25 tattoos, respectively.
Known for her free-spirited nature, Hudgens’ tattoos reflect this with their fine-line and delicate designs. Her collection includes a sunflower tattoo near her side and an angelic figure on the opposite side. She also sports a scripted phrase on her shoulder, the number “22” on her wrist, several finger tattoos, a discreet design inside her ear, and a snake tattoo on her ankle. A unique aspect of her ink includes the om symbol, split between each pinky finger, which forms the complete symbol when she joins her hands in meditation. This particular tattoo, shared with close friend Ashley Tisdale, dates back to 2011.
One of Hudgens’ most prominent tattoos is a vibrant butterfly on her neck, which she acquired in 2011 at Bang Bang Tattoo in New York City, marking her first foray into the world of tattoos.
In a recent update on June 14, 2021, Hudgens revealed her latest addition: a boa constrictor tattoo on her left ankle, crafted by Dragon from the renowned Bang Bang Tattoo. She proudly showcased this new piece on Instagram.
Earlier in May 2021, Hudgens visited tattoo artist Mr. K, who added the number “22” to her wrist collection.

In November 2020, Hudgens got “Capes or Wings” tattooed, paying homage to her role in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s film adaptation of the play “Tick, Tick… Boom!”
In March 2020, Hudgens revisited her favored artist, Dragon, to get an angel tattooed on her right side, which she describes as a “divine feminine angel.” She first revealed this tattoo on Instagram, tagging it with #thirstythursday and later sharing a video expressing her joy upon seeing the final result.
In January 2020, Hudgens had a sunflower tattoo inked on her side by Dragon, again shared on a Thirsty Thursday.
The other half of Hudgens’s om sign tattoo is visible on her opposite pinky finger.
Back in 2011, during a visit to Bang Bang Tattoo with Ashley Tisdale, Hudgens received the om sign tattoo on her hands.
