Malu Trevejo got a surrealist design tattooed on the center of her chest in June 2018. Her tattoo artist Alex Chiong created the unique ocean-inspired design by superimposing multiple images on top of each other. There are a pair of eyes inked below Malu’s breasts and a conch shell where the woman’s nose would be. A school of fish fills in the space on the bottom while the top of the design features curved lines that represent waves and sea birds. On top of the tattoo is a little black crescent moon, which is often a symbol for women since the menstrual cycle lines up with the lunar cycle. The moon also controls the tides of the ocean.
Malu’s young age is always a source of controversy every time she gets a new tattoo, but this time things don’t add up. The tattoo was done by a licensed artist at a reputable parlor in Florida, where it is only legal to tattoo a minor with parental consent if they are 16 or older — and Malu was 15. The artist actually defended himself by posting a picture on instagram of Malu posing with police officers and wrote “Try again guys Malú is not 13 you guys are haters and her mom is here everyone and everything is fine.” Someone watching her livestream had called the cops who showed up at the parlor but did nothing. So either Malu has been lying about her age and she’s older than she says, or, more likely, she and her mom lied to the tattoo artist and the police and said that she was 16.
