Simone Biles has been quite busy since dominating her very first Olympics back in 2016. The athlete quickly became a household name five years ago after winning five medals (four gold, one bronze) during the big event, and one thing she made sure to do to commemorate her experience was get her very first tattoo. A year after competing, Biles's close friend Jake Miller documented her experience getting her first tattoo via Instagram, and the athlete, of course, got a design of the Olympic rings in black ink.

Since then, Biles has added a few more pieces of body art to her collection. She quietly got a new one — the phrase "And still I rise" — a few months ago, but there are a handful of other meaningful ones where that came from. To get a look at all of Biles's tattoos and their meanings, read ahead.
