On Kreayshawn’s collarbone is a red bow. She tried to do this tattoo herself, but it was a bit of a disaster. She says: “I did the whole outline for the bow on my chest myself, and it was so fucked up because I was tattooing myself in the mirror. But I got it fixed so it looks a little bit normal.”
