Grimes got this huge brushstroke tattoo on her right forearm in December 2015. Although most of her other tattoos have been done by herself or friends, this one one created by Delphine Noiztoy, an artist who specializes in realism blackwork.
In an instagram post, she explained “Big streaks of paint so I always remember that I’m an artist, Delphine is a master of this style. I hope to add more specks of paint with her later, so that my hands always look as if I’ve just been painting and making a mess.”
The tattoo is a redesign of her existing cross tattoo, which was smaller and more ornate.
