It’s worth pointing out right off the bad that it’s incredibly difficult to obtain any official information regarding Erika Costell’s income. However, sources indicate that she has a net worth of $200,000, which she obtained through her modeling gigs, YouTube revenue, and Instagram sponsored posts.
Speaking of Instagram, her page boasts nearly 300,000 followers, and it includes various pictures of herself and her boyfriend Jake Paul. Their relationship became public in April 2018 during a Philadelphia 76ers basketball game.
Does Erika Costell have any tattoos?
As a matter of fact, she has eight of them. She has a representation of a cross on her side, a GOAT tattoo on her inner lip, a tattoo that says Ohana on her foot, an X on her elbow, an XII on her chest, another GOAT on her forearm, “Loyalty” on her hip, and “Fear Ends where Faith Begins” on her stomach.
So what do these tattoos mean? Well, the X stands for Team 10, which is the YouTube house that she’s a part of. As for Ohana, it’s actually the Hawaiian word for “Family.” Perhaps the weirdest and most controversial are the GOAT tattoos, but she explained that GOAT actually stands for Greatest of All Time. She also had a pet goat when she was 12, and it looks like she’s quite fond of these particular animals. The cross tattoo on her rib cage is dedicated to her former manager Larry, who she described as her “guardian angel.”
