Ariana Grande’s Neck Tattoo Is The Mark Of A True ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’ Fan

Singer got the phrase 'mille tendresse' in ink, but what does it mean?

Looks like Ariana Grande has quite the classy taste.

On Thursday night, the “The Way” singer got a mysterious tattoo inked on the back of her neck. And since fans probably couldn’t make out the words from her Instagram photo, she took to Twitter to clarify what exactly it says: “mille tendresse.”

It’s a French term of endearment, meaning “a thousand tendernesses.”

And in addition to being a beautiful phrase, it’s also a quote from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” We’re thinking that it’s no coincidence that the black-and-white adaptation of the book, starring Audrey Hepburn as New York City socialite Holly Golighty, is also Ariana’s “all time fav movie.” (That is, unless she’s changed her mind since 2010, when a fan asked her the question on Twitter.)

In fact, Ariana’s uber-girly style may remind diehard Hepburn fans of the equally girl Golighty, a character who made the little black dress a must-have in every closet. Perhaps a “Moon River” cover is in the works?

Ariana got her ink from “Best Ink” star and celebrity tattoo artist Romeo Lacoste. It’s her second tattoo, in a addition to one of a heart on her foot, which she got around the time of her Yours Truly single “Tattooed Heart.”
