Strictly’s Saffron Barker reveals bikini line tattoo request that left men baffled


Saffron barker, an ex-Strictly Come Dancing dancer, opened up about her small tattoos, including three words that she had inked on her bikini.

Saffron gained fame by sharing videos with a growing audience on YouTube. She was also featured on Strictly in 2019.

The vlogger was partnered by AJ Pritchard and they were eliminated from the tenth live broadcast.

Saffron was featured in a Celebrity Series of The Circle with Pete Wicks. She spoke shortly afterwards to TOWIE about her tattoos on his. ‘Just a Little Prick’ podcast.

“You probably wouldn’t even class them as tattoos,”She started. “I’ve got four, I would actually say three and a half, maybe three and a quarter, because one just really doesn’t count.”

The star’s first tattoo is of a tiny red heart on her pinky finger, and Saffron noted: “Every tattoo I’ve got, I just decided on the day that I wanted to get.”

And, the YouTuber explained that the decision to get her most recent tattoo had followed the same process, remembering: “I walked in there and I thought, ‘what is empowering that I can have on my bikini line?’

“I walked in, and get ready for this, and I said what I wanted to get done at the top of my head, and all the men went, ‘huh?’, and all the other women went. ‘yes girl!’

“So I walked in and I said, ‘I would like, on my bikini line, ‘she is art’. It was just like that.

“I think I was having a lot of self-love that day… like anyone I’ve always had body insecurity so where this came from, I’ve got no idea.”

Continuing to run through her ink, Saffron said that another tattoo – of the word ‘always’ on her arm – is a matching inscription that she got with her mum.

“This was very spontaneous. My mum has never wanted a tattoo ever in her life, and I have this weird thing of convincing her to do things, so one day I was like, ‘shall we just go and get a tattoo?’”

Saffron tried to explain the reason behind the tattoo by explaining: “When we argue, we’ll always say ‘always’, as in ‘always together’.”

“I have four tattoos but I do actually want so many more. But my problem is, I only like quotes. I don’t like a picture enough for it to be on my body… But I’m going to end up looking like a walking dictionary.

As an example, Saffron admitted that another tattoo she decided to make permanent on her body reads, ‘Dare to Dream’.

“It’s just there I guess to remind myself that I should always dream and not let people tell me otherwise,”She added.
