Halsey has a tattoo on her right forearm which says “BRAT” in graffiti-style capital letters. She showed off the brand-new tattoo in a May 2017 instagram photo. In a message with a fan, she explained that she got the tattoo because her mom and dad call her a brat. A brat is a spoiled child and it’s usually an insult, but Halsey sees it as a term of endearment instead.
Fans have pointed out that the word “brat” means brother/sibling in many languages including Russian, Polish and Serbian but this doesn’t seem to be what Halsey intended.
