Emily Cooper from Emily in Paris may not have any tattoos (yet…), but Lily Collins most surely has. The actor isn’t exactly open about her tattoos — they’re all hidden or hidden in plain sight — but she has a total of five known tattoos so far.
Collins, like many others, deliberately chose all of her tattoos and chose designs that had significant value for her. Her back tattoo of a woman sitting on a lily pad, for example, comes from a trip to South Korea in 2016. Her British background is shown by the crown on her wrist, which is a matching tattoo with her mother. Collins’ tattoos are all done in black ink in the fine-line style, which is popular among celebrities. Her tattoos all have a fanciful, almost mystical vibe to them, as seen by her fairy, rose, and crown designs. She also has a passion for flowers, which is evident in her work.
Emily in Paris actress Emily Collins isn’t the only one who has tattoos. Camille Razat (who plays Camille) has a tattoo on her forearm, while Ashley Park (who plays her onscreen closest friend Mindy Chen) has four little tattoos.
