    Kylie and her then-boyfriend Travis Scott got matching butterfly tattoos on their ankles in 2017 shortly after they started dating.

    Scott posted previously a photo of Kylie on Instagram with the song's lyrics as a caption, and both Kylie and Travis still frequently use butterfly emojis on social media.

  6. 'T'

    Three years later, she explained the personal meaning of the tattoo on Instagram during a vacations to Turks and Caicos.

    "My first tattoo was 'sanity' to remind myself everyday to keep it," Jenner wrote. "I’ve struggled with anxiety my whole young adult life and after my baby I dealt with all the internal ups and downs. I felt like I had to find myself completely again."
