Kendall Jenner covers Allure: Tattoos are ‘bumper stickers on a Bentley’

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner covers the March issue of Allure magazine. This is her biggest cover so far. She’s fronted Teen Vogue and a few other minor magazines. She’s appeared in US Vogue (a few times) and fronted Vogue Australia. There will probably be a US Vogue cover sometime in the future (because Anna Wintour has completely lost it and given big sister Kim a cover), but Allure is a pretty big score for Kendall.

I’m not a fan of most Allure covers, and this one is no exception. Kendall’s editorial (by Mario Testino) is all about massive, Kelly LaBrock-in-the-1980s hair. Kendall wears several swimsuits and poses with a very famous capuchin monkey. You can see the photos here — the monkey is Marcel from Friends. He’s 21 years old now, which makes me feel old. Here are some interview excerpts. I misled you about the tattoo quote, which actually came from Kim’s mouth first. Kendall holds the words out as truth:

She has acne: “I had just started ninth grade when I got my acne. And I had braces. I wouldn’t look people in the eye. It was not a good time for me — it just killed my self-esteem. I thought when I didn’t look at someone, they couldn’t see my face.”

On coming out of her shell: “I still have a hard time looking at someone when I’m talking to them, and I get nervous. When I started getting in front of the camera a lot, I think my confidence started to come out. It took a minute, because I had to believe in myself.”

She has no tattoos: “I have a really weird thing about ‘forever.’ And my sister Kim always said, ‘Don’t put a bumper sticker on a Bentley.’

Her modelling dream: “Kylie and I had to grow up in front of people, and it was hard sometimes … but it was never a negative thing. I would read magazines, and I would look at pictures with these women who looked so powerful. I wanted to be that to some little girl or little boy.”

[From Allure]

The quote from Kim — tattoos as bumper stickers — is hilarious. I guess implants, Botox, and fillers are no big deal. A tattoo? Now that crosses the line into crassness. The rest of the interview doesn’t do much. Kendall admits to getting a few pimples as a teenager, which made her shy. I’m pretty sure she’s growing out of her shell.

Here’s a pic of Kendall with Testino, who posted it to his Instagram and complimented his subject on her “energy.”

    Stfu. Tattoos can be (granted, not all are, some ate just bad) great works of art and very personal to the person who has them. And I’ll put bumper stickers on my Bentley if I so choose.

    • Honeybea says:

      And she’s no Bentley too (Kim that is), i mean did u see her outfit to Kanye’s fashion show

      • homegrrrl says:

        Awkward Floatation devices on a Volkswagen bug, that’s a go, but God forbid visible slogans. How’s that for a confusing aesthetic?

        I cringe when I see this girl. Her expression has the stamp of vapid. I can’t help but crush metaphorical cigarettes in her water glass. She doesn’t deserve fame; everyone deserves self esteem, but this one was handed a glamorous life.

      • Fan says:

        I am happy Kendal did not follow Kim with the trashy look like Kiely seems to be doing. I love Kendal’s photo shoot pics.

    • AuroraO says:

      For me personally I think tattoos are trashy. But if I ever thought of getting one I’d at least put it so I could cover it up with clothing.

      • Erinn says:

        I get that. I have a tiny bit of wording on my upper/inside forearm. It’s tiny, and if I wasn’t so pale it probably wouldn’t be as visible. It was a very meaningful phrase to me “It’s just a minor thing” because I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety. I look at it as a reminder of ‘hey, you can do this. you’ve pulled through this’ as well as a reminder to not let things bother you – because at the end of the day, you can get through it. It took me ages to decide on placement. If I’m wearing a three quarter sleeve, it’s covered. There’s also some great tattoo cover up, especially considering it’s so small.

        I’m itching to get another one. I might go for upper/outer thigh because who’s going to ever see it – especially at work. I’d love to be able to get one on my other forearm, but on the main part of it. But I know a lot of people don’t like tattoos, and while I’m in a job that I could be tattooed head to toe and it wouldn’t matter, I don’t know if I’ll always be here. Tattoo’s are getting largely more accepted, but there’s still a lot of people who just don’t like them. And even though it shouldn’t have a bearing on my professionalism, I’m not ready to risk it yet because I don’t know what industry I’d be working. I shouldn’t have to think that way when nothing I’d get done would be offensive looking, but I have to look out for myself job wise as a priority, I guess.

      • Div says:

        She may not like tattoos, but it’s rather judgey way of saying fo it in a national magazine. Then again she’s a teenager

      • Sabrine says:

        They might look not too bad but to me there is nothing worse than a bride with a bunch of ugly tats on her upper body. That’s when I realize that they’re not the most attractive thing you can do to yourself.

      • PinaColada says:

        +1 aurorao

    • Babyswans says:

      Eh, I feel the same way. I don’t judge people who have them. Get one if you want one, but I’m not putting one on my Bentley:). It’s kind of a funny quote.

      • kcarp says:

        I feel the same way. I don’t care if others have them. I don’t understand it. Like if you see a bride with a huge tattoo on her back and she wants it to show, that I do not understand. But to each their own. Let people tat themselves up all they want.

        I think the quote was funny too. I think Kendall looks really pretty when she smiles.

      • mytbean says:

        Some people who have tattoos have an extra edge to them that they wouldn’t have without. It adds character for some. I think they can be sexy. But I think it’s much sexier when they’re both meaningful and discrete – like a personal secret that can only be revealed intimately.

        But – visible tats are not elegant and if a person with a bunch of visible tats wants to present themselves as refined it’s difficult to do that. (like that wedding gown example) It’s just the age old association of ink to those with very little regard for other people I guess – I don’t know.

      • Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

        Never saw the value in having cartoons on my body either.

      • Melanie says:

        If a bride has a huge tattoo on her back and wants to show it…so what? It’s her body, her tattoo, her day. A lot of people get tattoos, myself included, because we like them and want them to be seen.

        My tattoos are very personal and significant. Not everyone wants one or likes them. Thats fine too. But I hear a shitload of “shame on you” for body-shaming on this site. Why should tattoos be any different?

      • kcarp says:

        @Melanie, that is what I was saying I don’t care what people want to do. I don’t understand the appeal. At the same time I have been coloring my hair for 20 years I am sure some people do not understand the appeal. To each their own.

    • Shambles says:

      @Invader Tak, well said. Thank you. I find generalizations about people with tattoos just as rude as generalizations about any other entire group of people. Calling all tattoos “bumper stickers on a Bentley” or “trashy” when it’s a personal choice to get tattoos and some can be extremely beautiful/meaningful is just in poor taste, imo. Who is she to say that? Criticizing any personal choice when it affects you in no way and causes zero harm to you or anyone around you is just unnecessary, and from her it comes off catty and vapid since she has nothing more intelligent to speak about.

      OT: the oversaturation of Kardashian/Jenner stories this week is making me nauseous.

      • Xtina says:

        I have tattoos. Lots and visible when I’m wearing short sleeves.

        And — GASP — I’m educated, have an *amazing* job, and am constantly complimented on my “put together” style.

        The last thing I need / want to hear is that people find them “trashy” (there’s a lot of ass-backward tattoo compliments in this thread, too). Have an open mind. Guess what — I can be a respectable human being and have my shit together AND have “omg eww trashy” tattoos.

        They are incredibly personal for me (still wish they weren’t quite the pop culture phenomenon they’ve become… But whatever).

        I get them because my parents had a ton. My dad killed himself when I was a kid and it’s the most personal, *real* feeling I can still share with him. So that’s where that is….

      • Xtina says:

        I tried to respond to another commenter but it looks like I’m responding to myself… Oops!

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I am a medical doctor (psychiatrist) with a couple other advanced degrees under my belt, am extremely well read, and no one I know would consider me trashy. And I have tattoos. Several. I wouldn’t judge someone based on their lack of tattoos, why would someone judge me based on my having them? To each his own and to judge is silly.

      • Yup says:

        I have 5 tattoos, they are all pretty small. I have two on both wrists though that you can see and are slightly noticeable. I got a tattoo of a black fun behind my ear on my neck and if I wear my hair up it’s very noticeable. I got it when I was 20 thinking I was so edgy and cool. Now I slightly regret it bc strangers prob think I’ve been in a gang or been to prison. But part of me thinks it’s still kind of cool. And yes I have a corporate job, I can’t wear my hair down but I ususally don’t anyways. Anyone I’ve dated has never judged me they all thought it was interesting. My parents want me to remove it but I just can’t yet. Maybe one day but it really doesn’t effect my life. It’s a personal choice and if someone doesn’t like it – adios – all the people I love don’t care so I don’t either.

    • Wren says:

      All of the agree.

      I love bumper stickers, and if I had a Bently, I’d probably put stickers on it. Because it’s mine, I like them, and I can. I think both stickers and tattoos can look amazing and artistic. You just have to do it right.

      If she doesn’t want tattoos that’s her choice and I’m fine with that. Each to his own. But the snotty attitude (yes I know it came from Kim but whatevs) can just go die. Nobody’s that much of a prize, sweetheart. Especially a bunch of plastic surgery enthusiasts.

    • Isabelle says:

      Eh kinda of feel the same way. would never get one because think currently its a big fad rather than ‘artsy’. You’re more of a rebel now if you don’t have one. Oh and when did it happen that tats need to be art in the first place? Miss the day of when tats were on bikers, people that needed to get them because of medical reason (mastectomies) bad asses, & military people, or yes tribal reasons. At one time they really did have a REAL story & people that wore them did have a reason. The fad has took away what once actually did make a statement…….., and don’t care if I get hate, hipsters you ruined tattoos.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Every one of my tattoos means something to me and I consider them to be art.

      • Mltpsych says:

        I am a licensed psychotherapist with a successful practice and I have a sleeve that is amazing. My artist is a true artist and all my tattoos have meaning for me. Plus I get to look at it all the time and take my art everywhere I go. Not worried about the hipsters, my art is for me – not trying to impress or show that I’m a “rebel”

  2. blueb says:

    I’m not a fan of this family at all but she looks good in this.

    • Livealot says:

      I disagree. Maybe it’s the curly hair or nose I never noticed , but she was always stunning to me but NOT in this.

    • Ash says:

      She looks great here. I don’t agree with her on the tattoos at all. I have and have seen some beautiful tats in my life. mine tell my story and I have them in places that can be covered.

  3. Honeybea says:

    I’d rather have that bumper sticker then that trash can she lugs around and calls her ass.

  4. lower-case deb says:

    i guess botox or fillers and implants are like making a stretch bentley with custom fenders and extra large tyres?

  5. Freebunny says:

    That sucks when the monkey has more charisma than the model.

  6. smcollins says:

    She has a lovely smile, she should show it more often instead of always trying to look “fierce.” And am I the only one getting a Vanessa Hudgens vibe from her pictorial?

    • Dońt kill me i'm french says:


    • Kitten says:

      She has a great smile. I know people think that she’s plain but I think she’s really pretty and fresh-looking, especially when you compare her to the rest of her plastic family.

      • Erinn says:

        I agree! She’s a super pretty girl, and I really hope she doesn’t screw with it. She’s making money by being more of a blank canvas. She needs to protect that.

      • perplexed says:

        I’m surprised she’s considered plain. She’s probably not unique looking ’90s super-model style like Linda Evangelista, but the standards for beauty must be unreachable nowadays if she’s considered plain. I hate the Kardashians, but this girl looks pretty enough to me at the very least. Of course, if Kim starts giving her plastic surgery advice, who knows how long the pretty looks might stay.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I agree, and think she’s quite pretty.

      • I Choose Me says:


      • MinnFinn says:

        To me she looks perky and very pretty-cute so I’d expect to see her face in ads for teen beauty products or cheerleader camp. But her tall lean body is very couture runway. It will be interesting to watch her career path.

        And she has definitely had a nose job. I like it b/c it didn’t alter her looks much at all.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I think she’s a very pretty girl.

      • FurballFriend says:

        Too bad she doesn’t have a personality to match; she’s a real bitch….I haven’t forgotten the articles I read about the way she treated her server at a restaurant (and that’s just one time). It better not rain while she’s out and about, lest she drown!

      • Trillion says:

        Her editorial in the current Vogue won me over. I don’t care to know anything about her, however.

    • Bridget says:

      I thought they accidentally mis-labeled a V Hudge picture.

  7. Allie says:

    She wanted to be the beautiful person on a magazine for some little boy or girl? Usually being the inspiration for somebody includes education or talent, and gives the recipient the drive or courage to fulfill their dreams. Kendall just wants to be the model you think is pretty. Good grief, this family doesn’t care about anything but looks and money. Kendall, go to college please.

    • vauvert says:

      I am pretty sure you need to be able to read and write and I doubt her “homeschooling” reached further than #lookatme#lookatme and hitting the Instagram buttons.

    • Malificent says:

      Did any of the girls go to college? Or just the brother? I find it strange that Robert Kardashian was a lawyer, but there doesn’t seem to be any push for higher education or a real profession for his children. I don’t know of too many families where the kids are less educated than the parents. My parents both grew up poor, and my mom’s family did not promote education (for boys or girls), but she raised us to expect to either get a college degree or a solid trade skill. When a family has the money for education or training and chooses not to — that’s beyond me.

  8. Lahdidahbaby says:

    She’s much prettier without that tarted-up styling and make-up in the cover pic. The hard black eyeliner is the worst. Honestly, haven’t we all figured that out from watching the Duchess? Look how much better Kendall looks in the photo of her in the red dress, with little or no liner beneath her eyes.

  9. BengalCat2000 says:

    I’m sure she didn’t have problems making eyeliner contact with the waitress she threw money at when she had her little tantrum. I guess she’s a decent model, but when I look at her pictures, all I see is an as*hole.

    • BengalCat2000 says:

      Oops! I meant eye contact. I hate this bloody phone! But eyeliner contact would have made a fabulous story.

    • Anita says:

      So do you believe everything you hear? You don’t possibly think that her sisters, family, wealth and attention —
      more than what most have in life, let alone a day in the life of a typical blue collar worker would incite some jealousy or vengeful feelings? You dont think that the waitress may have decided to take the take the chance and opportunity to capitalize on the widely held beliefs and opinions of others to exthort the Celebrity of Kendall? Why not, many would love to get one day in the press, and the possibility of a sizeable “pity tip” from the world/Kendall or a begrudged apology from anyone in this family as a personal badge or accomplishment since the rest of socety has to see and hear about them every day. How about some crtical thinking skills? And by the way, calling her an asshole makes you look just as bullyish and abusive as u have judged her for supposedly acting.

      • BengalCat2000 says:

        Because the story has been referenced by many sources and I’ve seen the show. By your lengthy post, I can see you are terribly invested in defending these people. This is a Gossip site, for f@cks sake!

  10. Lucy2 says:

    I think a poorly placed tattoo can ruin an elegant look, but I don’t think the Kardashians ever worry about looking elegant. And is a Bentley still a Bentley if it’s 90% replacement parts?

    I’ll believe she’s a legitimate model when every photo shoot is not accompanied with an interview about her and her stupid family.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Tattoos aren’t for me, but it’s so ironic hearing the body is a temple argument coming from a member of the plastic family. Please.

      • Shambles says:

        @GoodNames, perfect comment. Fill your lips with toxins and your ass with the fat from your knees, but GAWD FORBID you soil your body with a tattoo.

      • MCraw says:

        This, exactly.

        While I completely agree with her- this quote is used amongst me and my friends- it’s the irony of THIS coming from THAT family.

  11. Darkladi says:

    Just maybe mushy-assed plastic dingbats who pose in nothing but baby oil should STFU.

  12. Maum says:

    That cover is awful! It does her nose no favours.

    Compared to other models I think her 15mns are going to end rather soon.

    • Dońt kill me i'm french says:

      Compared to Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend ,she has all material to be a top model

  13. Naddie says:

    She looks really good with this hair, and the pic of her smiling is just beautiful. Now, how come every damn celebrity is “shy” and “awkward” now? Is it a new hype? I’m sick of this. They were all “the quiet, bullied kid” in school, and suddenly they became stars and thirsty for attention. And no, the “powerful” people at magazines only make insecure little girls even more insecure, idiot.

  14. Amy says:

    I wonder how these covers with the low-mileage Kardashian’s always sell, they keep putting them on adult magazines when they’re still teenagers and I wonder if anyon actually buys them.

  15. Kaley says:

    Honestly if Cara whatsherface can be a successful model without being even remotely cute, I don’t see why Kendall can’t. She’s a pretty girl. She has a chance at a good life unlike the younger one who will pretty much hit 18 DOA.

    • Amy says:

      Modeling isn’t all about being cute unless you’re modeling for a brand that only has safe cute clothes.

  16. maeliz says:

    I think Kendall is really pretty. I hope she doesn’t ruin her looks like Kim did.
    I have no tattoos, but I’ve known girls who later say they were rregretting theiers. They’ve said they didn’t think about how one day they’d be old and wouldn’t look same forever

  17. Kaye says:

    I agree with Naddie: she looks so appealing in the header pic on the main page of this site. Her smile is pretty and the curly hair is flattering. Even though you can tell she’s related to the K clan and she’s obviously Kris’ daughter, she looks like a young, fresh distillation of them all.

  18. NerdMomma says:

    I think she looks incredible in these photos. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her smile before. Then in the photo of her in the red dress, she looks bad. Those giant spider-leg eyelashes and putting lipliner around the outside of her lips (in other words, copying Kim’s makeup style) are really killing her look.

    Agree with poster above who said she should smile more and drop this “fierce” look.

  19. Jess says:

    Ha, when I read “famous capuchin monkey” I instantly thought of Marcel! As for Kendall, she looks pretty but sounds like a shallow moron.

    Off to google how long capuchin monkeys live.

    • Erinn says:

      Ehh. I have a fear of monkeys. I live in NS – when am I ever going to come across a monkey? A zoo, I guess. But my God, they freak me out. I can ALMOST handle the Capuchin monkey – I know Annie’s Boob’s from Community was also the helper monkey Oliver on Malcolm in the MIddle, and the monkey in Night at the Museum, as well as the Hangover. So I’m going to say they live a decent amount of time.

      Have you seen those pygmy marmosets? They’re not so freaky either – singularly. We saw some of them at the zoo, and my husband was like “oh no, these won’t scare you, look how tiny they are”. I think I could handle one or two of them – one for sure I think. This is the same man who found a documentary about primates on Netflix and was sitting on the couch giggling because the first shot I see it scrolling through photos of was this big old ape with bloody teeth haha.

      Orangutans though? I actually love them. Any other ape/chimp/whatever makes me nervous haha.

      • Jess says:

        Apes freak me out too, scary looking things! Lol. Your comment made me realize that I’ve never seen a monkey in person. I’ve been to the zoo once or twice but somehow didn’t see any, I need to change that! I had to look up the Pygmy marmoset and it’s quite possibly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen, so whittle and cute, squeak!

        You were right on the life span of capuchins, said in the wild they generally live 15 to 25 years, but in captivity they can make it 40 to 50 years. That’s interesting to me because I thought most animals didn’t live as long in captivity, maybe it has something to do with their diet?

      • Erinn says:

        Hmm, that is weird. Maybe a lack of predators? And they’d have access to vets, and things like that, I guess.

        I saw Gorilla’s at Disney haha – the size freaked me out, but it was mid day and warm so they were just kind of not doing much – and they were far off. But we have a surprisingly decent wildlife park and a farm zoo in the valley. They have a few different primate exhibits. I mostly just go for the Servals and other cats.

      • Lady D says:

        It’s like that for a cat’s lifespan too. Feral cats live on average 4 years, domestic cats live about 3-4 times longer.

  20. scout says:

    Kim and her delusional mind. ridiculous that one!

    Kendall should smile more, stay out of her K sisters’ lives as much as possible. She is more like her dad, close to Jenner brothers. Good for her, hope she doesn’t change, stay beautiful inside and out.

  21. manda says:

    I’m usually very anti-Kardashian, but I thought this interview made her sound sweet and down to earth!

    • Dawn says:

      Sure sweet like when she had a tantrum because she couldn’t get served alcohol at lunch and ran out on the bill? Or down to earth when the waitress caught up with her and asked her to pay up and she laughed and threw two twenties in her face? Please this girl is spoiled rotten, has little to no education and will be hooked up with some surgeon in a few years to look like her cartoonish sisters with their over inflated lips and back sides. Sweet people do not treat others so cruelly. I don’t believe a word that comes out of her mouth her half-sisters mouths. They lie, that is what their mamma taught them to do.

  22. Birdix says:

    Does she look a little creeped out by Testino?

  23. Nick says:

    In the picture w testino who does she look exactly like? I can’t put my finger on it. Angie Harmon?

  24. Chauncey says:

    For once I completely agree with Kim. When you have a nice body why would you want to mess it up with ‘art’ when naturally it is art? Kind of hypocritical because of everything Kim has had done, but she kind of has a point. To each their own, but especially if Kendall wants to be a top model, stay away from the ink.

  25. Lama Bean says:

    I guess I’m alone here but I think she looks beautiful in these pics.

    And yes Nick, I’m getting Angie Harmon too.

  26. MonicaQ says:

    I don’t have a Bentley, I have a tank. Big, functional, occasionally wasteful when used incorrectly, dangerous, and covered in the “bumper stickers” of my wars.

    • Shambles says:

      Love this. You and me both, MonicaQ. Wear em proud.

    • BengalCat2000 says:

      I love all of my that too, even the crappy on I got on my shoulder when I was 18 from a guy who used a bass guitar staring as a “needle”. For me, they are maps of my life, shrug.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      Love it! My tattoos are the story of my life as well. Started getting inked when I was 22 and I’m 50 now and anxiously awaiting my session with Thomas Hooper. I’ve been inked by amazing artists: Hannah Aitchison, Maud Dardot, George Campisi, Oliver Peck, and Virginia Elwood (to name the bigger ones), and every piece means something important.

      • BengalCat2000 says:

        I bet your work is amazing! I wish I knew the names of all the people who worked on me, I’ve gotten most if mine when I traveled and probably should’ve done more research, but I love them. And when I need to look conservative, I cover them with make-up. I get why people don’t like them though, and for someone of our generation to not have at least one seems almost odd!

  27. Lis says:

    Yeah, yeah … we saw the episode where she wanted a tat and Daddy wouldn’t let her. Great so-called opinion. When you’re old enough to think without Daddy’s approval, get back to us.

  28. Gabrielle says:

    When I was 17 ish I thought about getting a tramp-stamp of either a playboy bunny, a cherry or a butterfly. Kinda glad I didn’t go through with it.

    • Courtney says:

      That’s kinda what I was thinking. Not to defend Kim (the horror) but that’s not terrible advice to give to a young sibling, especially one that might be kinda wild or want a playboy bunny tat.

    • MonicaQ says:

      Yeah I wanted Trill spots from Star Trek Deep Space 9 at 16. I then instituted the rule of “If I want it, I’ll wait 2 years, do proper research, and get a decent artist”. It’s served me well. I do not have Trill spots.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        That is sound thinking. I’ve always had a policy of asking myself “do I really want this? Will I want it when I’m 50? Is it trendy or is it something personal?” and If my answers are yes, yes, and personal, I schedule a session for a few months out and see if I still want it then.

  29. Zigggy says:

    Sounds like the setup for a Proactive commercial.

  30. Dawn says:

    I think her mother is writing her a script and working with her so that she gets things right. I don’t think any of the Kardashians or now the two Jenner girls can be all that smart when their mother has downplayed education is favor of sexual educations. And don’t get me started on Kourtney and the nastiness that is leaving a personal sample on the floor in a hotel. These people have all been raised to be nasty and basically stupid. The fact that they have made millions by being amoral just sickens me to how low brow our society has become.

  31. perplexed says:

    She kind of looks like Katherine McPhee.

    “Marcel” the monkey is actually a female and has also appeared in “Outbreak” and “Ace Ventura Pet Detective”

    I remember when tribal arm band tattoos were popular with white folks, now they just look ridiculous.

      I have a girlfriend who got 2 strands of barb wire as a tattoo above her bicep. She is in her 30’s, and still hides her tatt from her grandparents.

  33. TWINK says:

    I like that she said “a girl or a boy” when inspiring people. Say what you want about them but they’ve always been very supportive of gay rights and reference gay people and Kim has gay weddings and everything on her game.

  34. Jayna says:

    Lady Gaga has a lot of tattoos, but last year when she went and put a huge monster claw on the left side of her mid to upper back where there are already other tattoos, it just looks awful.

    My last name is Bentley. My tats are artsy and classy.
    Piss off!
    Never taking any advise from this family.

  36. Laura says:

    I agree with Kendall that tattoos are unnecessary. The human body is beautiful without added decoration/ink. I also don’t believe in plastic surgery or fillers or basically anything that alters what nature has provided. I am most certainly not perfect nor am I the most alluring creature roaming the planet, but I do enjoy my natural appearance including my greying hair (I’m 35 and starting to go grey early) and petite build.
    That being said, I do not judge or turn my nose up at those who choose to have tattoos or plastic surgery/fillers. We are all different and have different beliefs and comfort levels with our outer appearance 🙂

    You know what I love about this photoshoot? Almost every photo has her with a closed mouth!! YAY!!! Maybe we are moving past the slightly opened sultry face that JLo started years ago!! 😀

    The tattoo part – MEH! To each their own. I have a couple of very tasteful tattoos and don’t begrudge anyone that has lovely artwork on their body. It’s those with the awful ones that make me cringe. Saw a gal the other day with a music note behind her hear kind of on her neck and it didn’t look like a music note really. It was terrible.

    And if young Kendall adopts the words of her older sister then so be it. She’s more than entitled to have an opinion.

  38. Josefa says:

    I’m not bothered by anything here. She looks pretty and she didn’t say anything really stupid or offensive in this interview. She doesn’t like tattoos. Big deal. I don’t like piercings and multi-colored hair. But I don’t judge – and I don’t see her judging here either.

    As far as the Kardashians go Kendall are Kylie are the better ones. Not that they are role models or anything but I’m generally just “eh” on them.

  39. Adrien says:

    She looks better on the Testino instagram pic. Her cover is the definition of basic. Looks like a hairstyling catalog. As for tattoos, tattoos are cool if our have the personality for it. If you are not confident looking with the tattoos then they will certainly look like regrettable life decisions.

  40. nan says:

    Can we all just do what’s right for us? I don’t have tattoos but I can admire them on others. It’s cool if you want them and cool if you don’t want them but that quote has an unfortunate judge-y sound to it.

    • BaeOnBoard says:

      I’m not getting the judge-y vibe. It’d be one thing if she said no one should have a tattoo, or that all tattooed people look trashy or “fill-in-the-blank”. She’s not passing judgment on those who disagree with this sentiment but appears to just be stating she doesn’t find it desirable for her own body. Why is it so hard these days for anyone to make a comment about something they do or don’t like, without everyone else seeing it as some sort of personal attack or (again), “fill-in-the-blank”-shaming? A woman can’t talk about her breastfeeding, or lack thereof, or when she starts potty-training her kids, or the fact that she doesn’t agree with eating meat, or that she likes cooking for her husband, or what makes her relationship work, without dozens of people getting up in arms that she’s making a personal attack against those who live and choose otherwise; unless the person specifically states “This is how I do it and it’s the best way/only way and everyone else should do it too” then in no way, shape, or form has she crossed into shaming or judging others. It’s simply stating what she believes works best for her, and in most cases is a direct response to a direct question, not something she just sat down and offered up as a great, wise one who knows how everyone should live their lives. There’s a lot of butt-hurt on this board from tattooed folks who are taking offense at this statement. I’m not a big defender of anything Kardashian, but I find it hard to see where this outrage against Kendall is coming from; she hasn’t issued a personal indictment against all tattooed folks or said anything about your lifestyles or stereotypes she attributes to “your kind”. She’s simply stating something about her own life. Geez, when did everyone get so quick to cry over reading a personal opinion that goes against their own stance??

      • perplexed says:

        I didn’t really get a judgmental vibe either. She kind of discussed the topic in the same way Taylor Swift talks about her red lipstick. Sounds like she repeated something funny her sister said in order to state how she feels about putting one on her own body (i.e. “I have a really weird thing about ‘forever.’)

        Doesn’t Kanye have tattoos? I doubt the Kardashians, as annoying as I generally find them, have a huge bias against other people for having them on their body if they’re willing to marry and procreate with people who have tattoos.

      • BaeOnBoard says:

        Exactly. They’re just sharing anecdotes that have shaped how they feel about various points in life, not issuing blanket statements about what they think about everyone who doesn’t believe or live the same.

        Not sure about Kanye (or any of the other baby-daddies/boyfriends, etc.), but yes, it is possible for someone to not want to put something on their own body but not necessarily find it undesirable on others.

  41. Obsidian says:

    She’s actually the prettiest of all the Kardashians. Hope she doesn’t try to mess up that face like Kim.

  42. Penelope says:

    She looks great on the cover–the best she ever has.

  43. Sarah says:

    Hang on just a minute. I’m sure she does have a tattoo!!! Something about you are beautiful in French or Italian at the back of her neck?!? I am off to google it

    • word says:

      No she had a fake one put on during and episode of their show. She wanted to get one and even flew to Las Vegas with Kylie to get it but then “chickened out” at the end. She got a fake one to fool Bruce (who was completely against it). I don’t know if that story line was fake or not (the girls were able to get out of the house and fly to Vegas without anyone knowing ???) but Bruce also hated seeing Kris smoke and was afraid his daughters would start smoking. Ironic how Bruce has been seen smoking a lot lately. Pretty much every story line for their show is fake.

  44. Mar says:

    Kim says not to get tattoos but stuffing your body with saline, silicone, fat injections, and getting nose jobs, fake cheeks and Botox is totally fine!

  45. lile says:

    Wow. Judgemental much? I’m trying to like Kendall because I appreciate that she doesn’t push the idea that a woman needs to b surgically enhanced to b considered beautiful. However comments like this are a step backwards. How about her BFF JB?? Not that he’s a Bentley by any stretch of the imagination, but tattoos are a personal choice that an individual does for themselves. If you don’t like them, don’t get any but don’t make blanket insults about the people that do.

  46. lile says:

    It’s also an absolutely ridiculous statement from an individual who has only been on this planet for 19 years and has never known anything other than a pampered lifestyle. It’s comments like these that cause people to view you as stupid and uneducated. Try thinking b4 u speak dear. Even if it hurts.

  47. Michelle says:

    I think Kendall is beautiful and hope for her own sake that she continues to walk her own path instead of drinking the Kardashian kool aid the way Kylie has. I see a lot of people referring to her as “judgmental” and even uneducated for her comments on not liking tattoos. Why is it that people with tattoos want to jump down others’ throats if they don’t share their sentiment or interest in them? I don’t personally have any and I don’t personally like tattoos, but almost all of my friends have them and I think in recent years as tattoos have become more and more popular, people without them are in the minority now. My tattoo-less friends and I have discussed how people just ask “how many tattoos do you have?” instead of “do you have any tattoos?” because they’re so common now, so I don’t get the backlash in these comments over her comments that she personally isn’t into them. It’s not like society hasn’t accepted them for people with tattoos to be feeling so judged by one girl saying she dislikes them.

  48. Snappyfish says:

    I have always liked this girl. She’s quite lovely & seems the most well rounded (rode horses, was a cheerleader not at all caught up in the machine when she was younger) she is also v outdoorsy & athletic (was, the fashion career may have curtailed that some) she is also the only one that tried to spend time w/her Jenner siblings.

    I hope she tries to steer clear of the kartrashian “brand” & is okay. She seems the only decent one of the lot. As for her comments, she is a teenager who was removed from HS to be “home schooled” & clearly education is not a top priority in that house

  49. cyndi says:

    Awwww…she was soooo shy. Wasn’t she head cheerleader? Mmmhmmm.

  50. Goodnight says:

    I have two tattoos. One is on my side and isn’t visible to anyone. I have a very small one on my inner left wrist, just 4 characters, and it can be covered by long sleeves or makeup. I like my tattoos to be able to be hidden because in the line of work I want to go in after my MA tattoos are a negative (juries take experts less seriously if they have tattoos) but I want to be able to see the work that I’ve had done rather than have it hidden away where nobody including me can see it.

    Both are personal reminders of things that help me with my depression. The first is a reminder of the pets I have loved and lost and who have loved me and given me so much, and the second is a reminder of my friends and the importance of having them.

    I think tattoos can be trashy, but merely having a tattoo in and of itself isn’t trashy. It’s super judgmental coming from the Kardashians, most if not all of whom have permanently altered their bodies with surgical procedures. If anyone should know not to say alterations are tacky, it’s them.
