No, Those Pics of Kristen Bell Covered in Tattoos Aren’t Real
Celebrities who live a very healthy lifestyle are the best. Kristen Bell is definitely near the top of the list — maybe even at the very top. Kristen has spoken candidly in interviews about kindness and is also co-founder of Hello Bello. Hello Bello offers environmentally friendly baby products at a reasonable price. Are you serious?
It’s exactly that wholesome quality that made Kristen Bell the perfect subject for a satirical video several years ago in which she was covered in a bunch of tattoos. People are starting to question the virality of images from her video, especially on TikTok. Does Kristen Bell really have tattoos?
Kristen Bell actually has a lot tattoos.
Kristen Bell’s images and many of her tattoos are a result of Kristen Bell. an old Funny or Die video From 2012, all the way back. In the video, Kristen appears to be covered in all different kinds of tattoos, including dozens of butterflies, portraits of both Steve Urkel and Stefan Urquelle (“representing the duality of man,” she explains), and a tribal-style armband — the only tattoo she regrets.
Now, we probably don’t have to explain to you that this is all a joke, but just in case: This is all a joke! None of Kristen’s tattoos in that video are real. The idea that one of Hollywood’s nicest actresses would be covered from head to toe in ink was apparently just funny enough to make a fake “behind the scenes” video about it.
These images can still throw people off their feet. (Even though you may not be as healthy as they appear, it is possible to still have a good time. And Have tattoos! Don’t feel too bad if you fell for the joke — you’re certainly not alone! For several weeks, images of Kristen with tattoos have been appearing on the internet. We’re guessing the original video makers are just as perplexed as we are at the video’s newfound audience!
Kristen spoke out about getting tattoos in the future, even though they are not real.
Interview featured on a March 2020 episode The Motherly Podcast Kristen briefly spoke about future plans to have a motherhood-related tattoo. “I realized I’ve had maternal instincts my entire life, and I never labeled them as that, but I will,” she said.
“I mean, at one point I’m going to get a little back tattoo that says ‘there’s no such thing as other people’s children’ because there’s just not, I mean, I believe it to my core because everyone you pass on the street was celebrated when they were born.” Not a bad plan for a future tattoo, if you ask us — and surely a far cry from the Steve Urkel/Steve Urquelle diptych she was sporting in that old video.
Basically, we’re in support of pretty much everything Kristen Bell does — and that includes both getting actual tattoos and appearing in videos covered in fake ones.
