Trendspotting: face tattoos. I’m sure someone at the New York Times has already pitched it to their editors, but seriously, it feels like a dozen celebrities all got face tattoos in the past week. Presley Gerber. Chris Brown. And… Amber Rose. Amber is a model and celebrity and “personality” and her face makes her a lot of money. So what happens when Amber debuts a giant forehead tattoo reading “Bash Slash.” Her son Sebastian’s nickname is Bash. And her infant son is named Slash. So this forehead tattoo is on trend with the “mommy tatts” going around (where moms get something meaningful tattoo’d for their children), only with a Post Malone twist. Obviously, people were like “why” and “oh god.” Amber says those critics can suck it, writing this on Instagram:
“For the people that are telling me I’m too pretty for a face tat are the same people that would tell me that I’m ‘too pretty’ even if they thought I was ugly and lie to me Lol. Or they would just tell me I’m ugly so either way the moral of the story is do whatever the f–k you want in life – muva.”
I…well… yes, people should do whatever they want and if you want a face tattoo, God bless. Some people love having ink all over their bodies and even their faces. But I do think it sort of ruins Amber’s look? I’m not going to say that she’s “too pretty” for face tattoos, because I just don’t think people – however fug or pretty – should get tattoos on their faces!! Lord.
