Blackwork Tattoos

Blac Chyna


Blac Chyna showed off this “FUCK” tattoo in January 2018. The expletive inking is on the left side of her ribcage, just below her armpit.

We’re not sure why she got this tattoo, and we have a feeling it’ll pose a problem when her two children start learning how to read. Chyna has already hidden other regrettable tatts with both cover-up tattoos and laser removal. We have to wonder whether this one will be the next.

Skylar Grey


Skylar Gray has a large tattoo on her right thigh based on art nouveau illustrator Aubrey Beardsley’s 1893 drawing “The Peacock Skirt.”  The original illustration (pictured below) is cut off with a hard line at the bottom, so tattoo artist Joshua Lord added his own creative flair to the design by changing the outline into a beautiful mermaid tail shape.

The tattoo celebrates Skylar’s involvement in the Suicide Squad movie soundtrack.  She contributed two songs: “Wreak Havoc” which she performed herself and Kehlani’s “Gangsta” which she co-wrote.  Fellow songwriter Jacob Luttrell drew something on her thigh on the night when they began writing “Gangsta” together.   The doodle was either a butterfly or a fish — neither of them can quite remember — but this piece of art evokes the feeling of both.
