Any fan of Adele probably already knows that the singer has multiple tattoos, but the meaning behind them had remained silent until recently. In her cover interview for Vogue, the singer spoke about the events in her life that led to two of her most significant pieces of ink.
On her right wrist is a tattoo of the planet Saturn with a design of Los Angeles in the middle that she got after experiencing an anxiety attack after having to cancel two shows at Whembley Stadium in 2017. The tattoo refers to his Saturn. return, which in astrology is an event that occurs every 27 to 29.5 years, when Saturn completes its full orbit around the sun and returns to the zodiac position it was in when you were born. Everyone experiences a Saturn comeback between the ages of 27 and 30, and they can often mark the beginning and end of major moments in your life.
“When that happens it can be life changing,” Adele said Vogue. “It shakes you up a bit: who am I? What do I want to do? What is it that really makes me happy? All of these things.”
Adele also spoke about the conversation with a friend that led to her getting a mountain tattoo on her wrist: “she said.” And she said to me, ‘You’re going to get there. And you will have a nice quiet walk. And then there will be another fucking mountain. ‘ And I’m like, ‘I’m not even done with this one yet.’ And she said to me, ‘It’s just life.’ “
In addition to her Saturn and mountain tattoos, the singer has at least five more that we know of, including one that is rarely seen in photos and reads her son Angelo’s name in a special script. Read ahead to get a closer look.
