SZA’s music always comes when it’s needed most. Her latest release, SOS, came into our lives at the height of Heartbreak season with songs about killing exes, battling insecurities and finding true freedom in solitude. Sharing such living bits of her soul with us, it’s hard not to immerse yourself in the magical yet tragic world she creates.
Few albums have garnered as much attention on the alternative R&B landscape as SZA’s 2017 release Ctrl. The album rocked us with heady bangers and somber ballads that forced us to face our darkest feelings. It contained unforgettable songs like “Love Galore” and “Doves in the Wind” that oscillated fluidly between bad bitch and sad girl energy. Able to articulate the complexities of love and hate with undiluted passion and a wide vocal range, the singer is no wonder she has become one of the most recognizable figures in music today.
SZA is also known for her iconic looks. From the colorful beads in her bangs in Ty Dolla $ign’s “Hit Different” video to her ethereal pink Versace dress at the 2018 Met Gala, there’s no shortage of stunning looks from one of the genre-defining artists of our time Generation.
Someone’s SZA tattoo can say a lot about them, most notably that they like to wear their heart on their sleeve. If SZA’s music got you through a painful journey, or if you just unabashedly love her songs, a new tattoo of her likeness or lyrics is definitely a powerful way to represent it. Well, enjoy these SZA tattoos and please don’t kill exes (as tempting as it may be).
