Christina Aguilera's tattoos honor the people in her life that are most important to her and remind her of how far she's come in the entertainment industry. Aguilera has at least five tattoos, with special meanings or memories.
Similar to other starlets that have tattoos, such as Rihanna's tattoos or Angelina Jolie's tattoos, Aguilera has tattoos in another language. Two, one on her arm and the other on her lower back, are in Hebrew and discuss love as does one in Spanish that pays tribute to her former husband Jordan Bratman.
In addition to a flower tattoo on her wrist, Aguilera reportedly has a tattoo of Mickey Mouse on her hip. Though photographic evidence of that tattoo is hard to find, it reportedly reminds Aguilera of how she got her start in the business, as a member of the "Mickey Mouse Club."
Aguilera came from humble beginnings with her early career including singing the national anthem at sporting events and an appearance on "Star Search" which led to her spot on the Disney series. Just like fellow stars Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, Aguilera burst onto the pop music scene in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
In the years since, she's become an accomplished singer, songwriter, producer, actress and dancer, not to mention sex symbol. Now, Aguilera is the divorced mom of a son but still remains active in the industry as a judge on the reality show "The Voice."Like other celebrities with tattoos, Aguilera's tattoos tell a story of where's she's been, what she's accomplished and how far she's come from that little girl from Staten Island to an award-winning international pop star.
