Halle Berry shows off an enormous back tattoo: is it real or just semi-permanent?

76th Golden Globe Awards Arrivals

Halle Berry is surprisingly good at social media, have you noticed that? She’s not a Kardashian about it, but she creates unique content for her followers and fans, and she shows a different side of herself online – funnier and more “real” I guess. Halle posts sexy photos of herself quite often, and she’s definitely not above a “stunt” for social media. So what do you make of this?

CB thinks it’s possible that this is a temporary or “semi-permanent” tattoo, like henna or something stronger. It feels like she would have documented the process of getting a huge back tattoo if it was real, but maybe she would have just wanted to show it off once it healed and looked cool. I don’t know. It feels like this would have taken a really long time overall, and we just would have heard about it before now? But… when I first saw it, I thought it was real… and ill-advised. Some people can really pull off these huge body tattoos and I’m not sure Halle is one of them. Granted, her body is still crazy. But some people are “tattoo people” and some are not. I’m not sure Halle is.

    Maybe it’s something to do with her part in John Wick III?
    Keanu has several huge tattoos for the movies, apparently JW got them while working for the (Russian) Mafia.

      I agree and I CAN’T WAIT for JW III!
      Anyways, she looks incredible, real beauty.

    All I can think is — who uses a frying pan shirtless while wearing sequined bottoms? All of that splattering bacon grease could just do untold amounts of damage….

    • Erinn says:

      ME TOO. I cringed just thinking how much it stings to get hot grease on my hands, I can’t imagine going shirtless.

    • marmalazed says:

      Haha! My first thought as well.

    • Beth says:

      My bf absolutely loves cooking, and he is often shirtless while at the stove but hadn’t been harmed by the splattering grease and boiling water so far. Thankfully he doesn’t wear sequined bottoms though! LOL

    • deezee says:

      My brother made bacon like that all the time when he was a teen. *eyeroll*

      I’d hear “ouch” often.

    I doubt it’s real but I think she could pull it off if it was. But it honestly would not surprise me if she went and did it for real. Halle has never been a woman to do what is expected and I love her for that sass!

    She’s gorgeous, no matter what.

    It could be something like Inkbox. You can get pre-made patterns, or a free hand kit. Similar to henna, lasts just over 1 week to just over 2 weeks. I keep meaning to order some of the freehand stuff to try out tattoo ideas I have before getting them.

  6. Brittney says:

    Real or not, I absolutely love it. Follows and complements her body’s shape so perfectly.

    I was picturing an Affleck-type of back tatt … I quite like this!

  8. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    She’s a cylon!

    It’s horrible.

  10. SM says:

    Either way, that photo is ahhhmazing!

    I’m just having trouble with the mermaid reference -because I’m seeing leaves or possibly feathers?

  12. Beer&Crumpets says:

    What does that have to do with mermaids, though? Is it seaweed?

    Are diabetes advised to get tattoos?!?
