Millie Bobby Brown showcased her growing ink collection in a pink backless dress at the premiere of her latest film Enola Holmes 2, which premieres on Netflix on November 4.
The 18-year-old actress currently has four tattoos, including a tribute to her late grandmother Ruth who passed away in 2020 after battling Alzheimer’s disease.
Brown, whose name is scribbled in italics on her left rib cage, was first revealed in July while sailing with her boyfriend Jake Bongiovi in Italy.
The Stranger Things star informed fans of her grandmother’s passing via a heartbreaking Instagram post published in November 2020.
Alzheimer’s is bad. It’s cruel. Depriving someone of the ability to remember memories and then function as a human being. It’s so hard to sit there and watch,” wrote Brown, who “loved” [Ruth] more than anyone could ever love.’
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Millie was unable to be with her grandmother in her final moments.

Delicate: In March, the brunette beauty got a small outline of a heart tattooed on her collarbone and she also has a rose on the left side of her back
Iconic role: On her left wrist is a ‘011’ tattoo, a nod to her Stranger Things character Jane ‘Eleven’ Ives
“I couldn’t come home to give you one last hug because of Covid-19, so FaceTime was all we had. I sang to you as much as my voice could take, even when you were asleep. These are memories I will never forget,” she wrote.
While she’s never publicly announced her plans to honor her “guardian angel” with a tattoo, Brown has proudly displayed it in recent months.
On her left wrist is a ‘011’ tattoo, a nod to her Stranger Things character Jane ‘Eleven’ Ives.
She got the part at just 12 years old, completely unaware that it would turn her into a household name.
Eleven was taken from her mother as a young child and made an unwilling participant in a CIA-run experiment program. She was born with psychokinetic and telepathic abilities.
She is the protagonist of the series who faces the forces of The Upside Down, an alternate dimension with menacing powers.
Eleven has “011” tattooed on her wrist, identifying the kids in the top-secret program.
Last year, Brown decided to get that same tattoo on her own wrist.
It first appeared in a promo image for her makeup line Florence by Millie Bobby Brown in December 2021. In the photo, she can be seen in a phone booth with her wrist slightly turned to the camera.
It also appeared on photos taken on Brown’s 18th birthday. She was captured posing in the back of a car wearing a sparkly blue dress with her tattooed wrist resting on a seat divider.
In recent months, Brown has been letting her Stranger Things ink shine in more promo images for Florence.
Brown will say goodbye to the character in the fifth and final season of Stranger Things. Production is scheduled to begin in 2023.
In March, the brunette beauty had a small outline of the heart tattooed on her collarbone.
She debuted the subtle ink while donning a custom Louis Vuitton gown at the 2022 BAFTAs in London. It came just weeks after tattoo artist Sketch inked the star.
In a after shared on March 31, Sketch called Brown an “absolutely incredible young woman” and posed for a selfie with her at his store.
Last but not least, Brown has a rose tattooed on the left side of her back in black ink.
While it’s unclear when the Enola Holmes actress got it tattooed, it was first documented in the blink of an eye by her beau Jake on May 22.
In it, Brown is seen from the side in a white tank top with a low back, giving a glimpse of the new acquisition.
Brown has never spoken publicly about her feelings regarding tattoos, but with four under her belt, it’s clear the star is a huge fan of body ink.
