Kylie Jenner got a small tattoo on her hip from a NYC celebrity tattoo artist

In keeping with her reputation of being the rebel of the Jenner-Kardashian klan, Kylie Jenner ignored sister Kim and Mom Kris’ advice and went under the tattoo gun of celebrity inker Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy in New York City last night. Then Bang Bang ignored the advice of any rational person in the world and let Kylie turn the gun on him.

The 18-year-old, who recently criticized a female paparazzo, was in the Big Apple to support Caitlyn Jenner as she accepted Glamour Magazine’s “Woman of the Year” award. Tonight, she will be in the audience as sister Kendall hits the runway in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Even though big sister Kim told her younger siblings that getting inked was akin to “putting a bumper sticker on a Bentley”, Kylie went ahead got a small bit of text inked on her hip. For a family who puts it all out there, the placement is kind of surprising – but she could be following sis Kendall’s lead. Probably fearing losing modeling gigs, but wanting to have a moment of rebellion, Kendall walked into NYC’s Jon Boy tattoo studio and walked out with a small white dot on the inside of her finger. So rebel, much crazy.

After Bang Bang finished up with Kylie, she grabbed the gun and added her own artwork to Bang’s already ink-covered skin, which you can see on Bang’s Instagram. She added a small crown with the letter K on it on the back of Bang’s calf. This isn’t the first time Bang has allowed an amateur to give him a permanent autograph. Among his many pieces of celebrity skin art include a cartoon mouse drawn by Justin Bieber, a peppermint from Katy Perry, an umbrella from Rihanna and a crescent moon from Miley Cyrus. Neat, huh? Neat but risky for Bang – a quick Google search reveals that all of these shenanigans are kind of frowned upon by the law. As far as NYC goes, “The law requires tattoo and body piercing operators to obtain a permit in order to operate a tattoo or body piercing studio and for all tattoo and piercing artists to obtain an individual permit.”

Of course, this whole incident is a publicity bonus for both artist and subject. Bang has a new book, My Life in Ink, with a forward by Rihanna, hitting shelves on November 17 and Kylie, well, the girl not only has to keep her followers happy on Instagram and Snapchat, she also has to deliver content to fans who – for some reason I still can’t figure out – pay $2.99 a month for exclusive duck face selfies and such. Well, if she’s going to be such an influential teen, hip tattoos are at least an improvements over duck lips – but let’s hope the amateur tattoo artist thing doesn’t take off.

    Her duck lips are looking weirder and weirder and I feel like she wears same outfits as Kim. I would like her to disappear
    Where is that flying saucer to probe and abduct her when you need one? Ha Nick Jonas???

    Can we STOP getting “reports” on every insignificant thing this stupid girl does? It’s out of control!

  3. Freebunny says:

    As far as the tattoos. Kendall’s is probably all but gone. My daughter had a heart put on a little finger and it was gone within a month (at most). So, with all the hand washing that gets done, dead skin washes off which includes any that has the tattoo on it. Such a rebel that girl was. Kylie, who cares. Just another thing she may regret as she gets put down by her siblings for it. I’m not against tattoos as I have two myself (one I’m going to have redone to get rid of the initials of my ex – yeah I was one of those. But in my defense we had been married 25 years before I did it). And that tattoo artist is an idiot for allowing an amateur to ink him.
