Are the royals even allowed to get tattoos? For working members of the British royal family (aka Kate, William, Meghan and Harry), it’s technically not against royal protocol to have a tattoo (as far as we know), but it’s probably not encouraged—they have rules about pantyhose, for goodness' sake!

But there are a handful of heirs that have chosen to don permanent body art. Here, all the royals who’ve paid a visit to their local tattoo parlor.

Lady Amelia Windsor

The 23-year-old third cousin of Prince Harry and Prince William, Lady Amelia is no stranger to pushing the royal envelope (since she’s 38th in line of the throne, it’s probably assumed that she’s at a safe enough distance, anyway). The model has walked in fashion shows, starred in high-end campaigns and sports at least three tattoos (a lion on her shoulder, three animal outlines on her arm and a pair of wings on her torso).

The Tough Mudder competitor is even more of a badass than we thought. Princess Sofia of Sweden, who married Prince Carl Philip in 2015, has two children who are fifth and sixth in line to the Swedish throne. She has three tattoos: a sun on her upper back, letters on her ankle and a butterfly on her ribcage.

Prince Frederick of Denmark

Frederik, who is the heir apparent and Crown Prince of Denmark, will take over the Danish throne after his mother, Margrethe II, abdicates. His Royal Highness sports a shark tattoo on his calf, which officially makes him the hottest royal dad we’ve ever seen (sorry, William).
