Johnny’s TATTOOS

 A description of each of Johnny’s tattoos by Corrie. (please do not copie on another site)


Johnny likes to cover himself with tattoos which all have a different and special meaning to him. He said in an interviez that his body is like a diary, he get tattoos of people that have a menaing to him or even sentences. As far as we know, Johnny has 20 tattoos but he will probably get more as the time goes by.

Native American Head

tatnat.jpgThis is the first tattoo Johnny’s had in 1980. Cherokee Indian chief for his ancestral heritage, his grandmother was Cherokee – on his right biceps. This tattoo is used in the American TV program 21 Jump Street in the episode « Debbie ». Tom Hanson wakes up in the car after being drunk on the way to Debbie’s marriage. His free minded friend then tells him he is so cool when he’s drunk and even got a tattoo.

3 small dots

Jack and Flying Bird

tatjack1.jpgJohnny got that tattoo on his right forearm after Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl. However some cahges were made as the bird flies towards him because « You have to have it flying towards you. He’s gotta always fly back to you. »and the name of his son added. (Also the name of JACK Sparrow) The tattoo in POTC1 was a fake.

The Brave Symbol

braves.jpg 76412f260.jpg This tattoo is the main symbol of his movie « The Brave » which he directed and starred in with one of his bigger heros, Marlon Brando.

Heart & Betty Sue

tatbetty.jpgHis mother’s name “Betty Sue” is inside a heart with some tribal flourishing on his left upper arm. He got it on May 31, 1988.

Inverted Triangle

tattriangle.jpg Just above the heart with his mother’s name, he has an inverted triangle. Over the heart with his mother’s name he has an inverted triangle. The triangle was origanally drawn by Russian painter Ilya Chasnik in 1925. Chasnik was part of a group which embraced the Communist ideal of producing art for the benefit of the worker and arranged many public art projects – maybe this tattoo has political meaning for Johnny.

Winona/Wino Forever

tatwin.jpg While engaged to Winona Ryder, Johnny got « Winona Forever » tattooed on his upper right arm. Winona was there when he got the tattoo on, she was real shocked to see how painful it was, ( not that Johnny screamed like a little girl, he would have been heard by the paparazzi if he had). He later to it laser edited to « Wino Forever » after breaking up with her. He certainly does not look weird with such a word on his arm!!

Three rectangles

johnnydeppfingertattoo.jpg On his right index finger, we can clearly see three rectangles. He once descibed it as « permanent phone doodles » and once said they have a real depp  deep meaning but he doesn’t quite know what yet. He use to draw them everywhere on his book during school time.

Number ’3′

imagescaun0nvb.jpg This Number 3 is to be found on his left hand. He once said not long ago that he and his friend put it on one day while they were bored. Vanessa Paradis’s sister has got the same tattoo on the back of her neck.


lily.png Johnny got the name of his daughter Lily-Rose tattooed close to his heart. The lettera are made of rosebuds.

Skull and Crossbones

tatskull.jpg a Skun and Crossbones can be find on Johnny’d right lower leg with the words  » death is certain ».

Question mark

question.pngAlso part of the Brave symbol, a question Mark is found inside of Johnny’s right ankle.

Silence Exile Cunning

tatsec.jpgThis tattoo first appeared at the MTV Movie Award, 2nd June 2008 and says “Silence Exile Cunning”, a quote from a book from James Joyce titled “A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man”. At five pages of the end of the book, we can find this quote, from the main character Stephen: “I will tell you what I will do and what I will not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it call itself my home, my fatherland, or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defence the only arms I allow myself to use – silence, exile, and cunning.” It is located on his arm.

Three Hearts

picture11.png While filming the Rum Diary in Peurto Rico, March 2009, Johnny got this tattoo on his upper left arm. It seem to be representing his family; Vanessa and his two kids, Lily-Rose and Jack (their two hearts seem to be linked with each other).

Gonzo Fist

tatgonzo.jpg Johnny got this tattoo on while filmimg Pirates Of The Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides in Hawaii on June 22, 2010. This Gonzo fist (Hunter S. Thompson’s journalism) is located on the front of his left leg.


skull.png Johnny’s inside upper right arm tattoo, skull, first appeared at the Voice Of Justice concert in Arkansas on August 28, 2010.

Salve Ogum


Outside his left arm, Johnny has an “Ogum” tattoo and the writing Salve Ogum. Ogum is an Afro-American deity. It is portrayed as a comic-strip character with a crown. It might be that Johnny has drawn a layout of the symbol himself. “Salve” is Portuguese and means “hail” or “save”. Jonathan Shaw put the tattoo there in 2010, while he spent some time with Johnny in Hawaii.

Sailor and Woman

tatgrandfather.jpg tatgrandmother.jpg Johnny gor two more tattoo at the shamrock social club sunset boulevard on December 20, 2009 as he was in there for two hours ( which doesn’t seem to be enough to get a tattoo). The tattoo on his right arm seem to represent a sailor, and, as he mentioned it earlier, Johnny’s grandfather was a sailor. The tattoo on his other arm is probably a woman holding a handbag. This tattoos could well represent his grandparents in youth.


tatshinwriting.png Johnny got this writting just a few days after his Gonzo fist (just underneath, on his shin). He don’t know waht the meaning of the words are but I will discover it soon!!!

Meaning of Number 3 for Johnny

Number 3 has a very powerful meaning for Johnny, first of all his bith date is 9/6(June)/1963. He has got 3 brothers and sisters, and 3 essential people in his life, who changed his life (Vanessa, Lily-Rose and Jack). He says « Three is a sort of magical number for me. It’s a very creative number. Triangle, trinity, you know, two people make another person. Three is a mystical, magical number. » All these reasons are probably why keeps having all sorts of 3s tattooed on him.
