“If you count them individually, then that’s an astronomical amount. But because they are joined together, it becomes a sleeve, or it becomes a back piece,” the Australian superstar told Marie Claire Malaysia about her 109 tattoos for her August 2018 cover story.

She added, “They all have personal meanings or stories — they are there to create a memory. Some of them are more meaningful than others, but I love them all.”

One year earlier, at the premiere of her new film The Meg, we also get a glimpse of the blue swallow tattooed on the back of her neck. She donned a feminine Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2018 cutout dress with Bulgari jewelry and Stuart Weitzman shoes.

Best known for her roles in “Orange Is the New Black,” “John Wick: Chapter 2” and “Pitch Perfect 3,”, Ruby has a big portrait of American graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat on her upper left arm. It was inked by specialty tattoo designer Jessica Mascitti Ellis at the New York City tattoo parlor East Side Ink in June 2014.

The swallow is known as the bird of freedom. As a tattoo, it is a symbol used historically by sailors to show off their sailing experience.

The gender-fluid actress/model also has a neck tattoo that says “And breathe me.” It is a line from the song “Breathe Me” by Australian singer Sia featured on the album Colour the Small One. Ruby got this tattoo in February 2011.
