Johnny Depp is known for his diverse range of tattoos. The meanings behind his tattoos are varied and many times symbolic. For example, one of his most notorious tattoos is a Cherokee Indian Chief adorned with the words “Death is Certain, Life is Not,” which expresses his belief in taking life as it comes. Depp would later explain that this tattoo has two meanings – life is unpredictable, but death will ultimately come for us all. Other tattoos have a simpler symbolic meaning, such as the “Lily-Rose” tattoo, which is a tribute to his daughter, Lily-Rose Melody Depp. Depp has a number of tattoos honoring his beloved family, including his mother and his grandchildren. He also has tattoos honoring his friendship with other notable figures, such as the late Hunter S. Thompson and the late Paul Newman. His tattoos also pay homage to musical influences such as Elvis Presley, Bob Marley and John Lennon. Johnny Depp’s tattoos reflect his life’s journey and the passions and relationships that have been most influential to him.
