Here is a page of Christina’s tattoos, she currently has 8 of them. If you can help us with information on any of them, please feel free to contact me.
Christina, in Vancouver, Canada, shooting the film Prozac Nation, found herself on set with some time on her hands. Deciding that nothing makes time fly quite like getting some ink, Ricci visited acclaimed tattoo artist Thomas Lockhart at the world famous West Coast Tattoo Shop.
Ricci selected a colorful bouquet of Sweet Peas to adorn her lower back. Ricci, as charming in person as she is on screen, fell in love with Thomas’ constant companion, Chili Conchita. Chili, a pure bred Chihuahua, knowing that good things come in small packages, was equally taken with the diminutive Ricci.
Christina’s most visible and largest tattoo is a on her shoulder. It is Aslan from C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles Of Narnia (one of the books, of course, being Ricci’s favorite book – The Lion, Th
e Witch And The Wardrobe).
Aslan, the Great Lion, is the founder of Narnia. The name (pronounced Ass-lan) means “lion” in Turkish, and came from the book Tales From The Arabian Nights which C.S. Lewis used to read as a child. Unlike any other character in the Chronicles, Aslan appears in all seven books – but he only comes when Narnia is in terrible need, as when Edmund’s life is in danger in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Aslan is a huge and terrifying lion (though, when he wants to be, he is gentle and playful) and has such great magic at his command that he is able to defeat the White Witch, just when she thinks she’s got the better of him.
Christina had a small bat tattooed near her belly button. It now appears that she has had a pair of praying hands tattooed over her tattoo of a bat. Unfortunately we have no info where and when it was taken.
Ricci attended the Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy in August 2003 to promote her new film Anything Else, seemingly spotting a new tattoo on her arm. It is of a fairy.
Christina is sporting a tattoo that appears to bare the name “Jack” on her right thigh. She got it in honor of her late dog, Jack.
Between 2003 and 2004 Christina was showing off a tattoo on her left ankle of a mermaid. Unfortunately we have no info where and when it was taken. Hopefully time will tell us more about it.
In August 2004 Christina got a new tattoo on her right breast. It is of a sparrow and is noticeable in the film “Black Snake Moan”.
