If there’s anything Jersey girls know how to do, it’s express themselves. Whether it’s through fashion, music, art or their hair, girls from the Garden State love self expression. Tattoos are one (super permanent and bold) way to do just that and these Jersey celebrities are proof.

Jersey Shore alum Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi loves tattoos. She even has an adorable cartoon squirrel!

Snooki’s partner in crime, Jenni “JWoww” Farley got her first tattoo at a house party when she was only 15. Since then, she’s added plenty more. She even once got a tattoo on Facebook Live!
