    Until she moved to Los Angeles in 2010, she had no tattoos. She drove by a wall with the saying "Trust Your Struggle" and got it tattooed within the hour. "It just means that you've got to kind of have faith in all the roadblocks that you come up against while you're trying to reach your goal because there's so many, and sometimes it just feels like it's never-ending, and that's how I felt when I got that tattoo."

    From 2011-2012, Iggy was dating A$AP Rocky. She had a tattoo that said "Long Live A$VP" but after the couple broke up, she crossed out the A$VP. "I felt like he was somebody I could count on who loved me for being me, and I don't want to forget that. I would sacrifice a quarter of a pinky for those memories. That's why I didn’t cross it out all the way, because if I'd covered it up all the way, that says I'm embarrassed."
