Your conservative grandma could faint on the sight, however who is aware of, might face tattoos ultimately lose their stigma, like nostril rings or cartilage piercings earlier than them?
One singer working to make the case for Team Face Tat is Halsey. The 23-year-old singer, who has loads of different items throughout her physique—together with on her neck—posted a picture to Instagram on Friday displaying off new tattoo on her left cheek, proper subsequent to her ear.
Done in purple ink, the piece is an homage to the Queen of diamonds from a typical deck of taking part in playing cards, giving us fodder for « Poker Face » puns for days. (Halsey is an admittedly big fan of Lady Gaga—we surprise if there is a connection?)
« Headed straight for the castle, » she wrote within the caption, which we think about is a reference to her 2017 album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom. « Thanks for my first (and only hopefully lol) face tattoo. » She tagged Los Angeles studio NAL Tattoo.
The easy purple « Q » and diamond form should not fairly as hanging as say, rapper Post Malone’s « Always Tired » face tattoo, and even Kat Von D’s small constellation of stars, but it surely’s fairly an announcement nonetheless.
Love it or hate it, we have now one factor to say to Halsey: « Yass, queen. »
