Lady Gaga Gets Inked (Twice) In Japan
The meaning behind her inner arm tattoo:
"That one commemorates my favorite writer, Rainer Maria Rilke, a poet and romantic philosopher. In German he writes, 'Confess to yourself in the deepest hour of the night whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write. Dig deep into your heart, where the answer spreads its roots in your being, and ask yourself solemnly, Must I write?'"
The meaning behind the "Tokyo love tattoo" on her shoulder:
"That was to celebrate the Haus's collaboration with legendary Japanese photographer Araki. I was bound by Araki's personal bondage artist, by several ropes and Japanese knots... Araki photographed me, using a series of several cameras. He did not photograph my image; he photographed my soul. We spent the night with Araki and his friends at a members' only bar he's owned for more than 20 years, where he displays his work. Here, he painted me and took Polaroids through the night. I was honored to be the first American woman he's photographed, and only the second pop artist, in the company of Björk. He signed the Polaroids "Tokyo Love," and the Haus got tattoos of his marking in celebration."
Her feelings on 'The Fame' exploding in popularity during 2009:
"It's been a life-changing year for me creatively as a musician and a performance artist. I walk away from the Fame Ball humbled by my little monsters-my fans-and proud of the Haus for all its successes amidst the adversity of the industry. We killed it."
How she feels about her fans:
"I love my little monsters. Now I live and create only for them."
