Yulia Volkova is a Russian singer, actress, member and soloist of the Tatu collective, now performing with a solo career. Even as a child, Julia starred in the children’s newsreel “Yeralash”, sang in the children’s group “Fidgets”, and in 1999, as a result of the casting, she was included in the group “Tatu”. The project was founded by the famous screenwriter Ivan Shapovalov and the composer Alexander Voitinsky.
Julia did not stay away from the title art of her creative team – the singer’s body is decorated with many tattoos.
The loin is adorned with the Arabic symbol for Love. At one time, this tattoo caused a great resonance due to the external similarity of the ligature with the inscription of the word “Allah”, but Julia herself and her producer argued that this judgment is incorrect.
Between the singer’s shoulder blades, there is a symbol stylized as tribal tattoos, but with Arabic elements.
On the neck – a flower with leaves, made in the traditional OldSchool technique
Turning to the Latvian tattoo artist in Riga Vadim Tsarenko, Julia made an inscription on her stomach: “To be strong & caurageos” – To be strong and fearless. The phrase is framed with tribal patterns. “This city has a very cool master felt-tip pen! I do the second picture with him! I am delighted!” In addition to this large-scale work, fans saw in the photo a fragment of an intimate tattoo peeping out of a swimsuit in the lower abdomen. According to conflicting information from the network, a piano is depicted on the pubic part of Julia’s abdomen, but, for a number of reasons, there is no way to find confirmation.
On the left shoulder of Julia there is a tattoo in the form of two letters “J&G” and a silhouette of two people holding hands. According to rumors, the artist dedicated this tattoo to her lover, Gia Galsky, a well-known crime boss, with whom the singer had been hiding for a long time.
On Yulia’s right shoulder there is a hieroglyph for the word “Dragon”. It is believed that this fantastic animal symbolizes power, strength and ability to achieve goals.
The inside of the left shoulder is decorated with a large tattoo in the form of the inscription: “Faith” – Vera (English) Recently, there have been many publications in the yellow press devoted to the scandals associated with Yulia Volkova’s adoption of Islam and the return to Christianity. As we can see, the artist devotes a lot of free time to issues of faith and this tattoo may have a deeper meaning than it might seem at first glance.
On Volkova’s leg is the inscription “Victoria” – the name of her daughter (born September 24, 2004)
The singer’s wrists also did not miss the tattoo artist’s needle: on the left – the date of birth (February 20, 1985), on the right – the artist’s initials “JV”
Today this is the most complete collection of tattoos on the body of Yulia Volkova, but we will wait for the new works of the singer, who precisely defined her fate with the word “Tatu”.
On June 24, 2017, Yulia Volkova visited Lera Kudryavtseva’s program “Secret for a Million”, where she talked about her personal life, creativity and tattoos.
