Tattooed Love Boy

A partial listing of Depp tattoos.

Johnny is rumored to have 12 tattoos, among them are: his famous “Winona Forever” that’s been shortened to “Wino Forever,” and an Indian head on his right arm. On his left bicep is a heart with Mom’s name in it, “Betty Sue,” and an inverted triangle. There is a 'Brave' doodle on his right forearm and a skull with crossbones on his right ankle. On his left hand is a symbol that represents a 3. He pays homage to daughter Lily Rose on his chest above his heart and inks out a proper place for Jack on his right forearm. He has a question mark on one leg and a skull (that may say ‘Death Certain’ or ‘Certain Death’) on the other. On his index finger he is rumored to have three boxes, because ‘he likes to draw them.’

Johnny has found a sense of peace and what he’d been searching for for so many years through his love, singer/actress Vanessa Paradis, who, at the time of this writing, have been an item for six years, living together in a villa in the South of France. Daughter Lily-Rose Melody Depp was born in a hospital near Paris on May 27, 1999. Son Jack Christopher Depp III followed on April 9, 2002.
