Cardi B is proudly showing off new ink of her children’s names.
On Saturday, September 10, the 29-year old rap star took to Instagram Live to show new tattoos that featured her names, Wave (1, and Kulture (4, respectively). Wave’s name is penned in light red-colored cursive on the side of her face, while Kulture’s name is inked in a similarly styled darker shade on her arm.
“I tatted my son’s name because I love him,” Cardi told fans in the brief clip she pulled her hair back and showed off the tat. “And I tatted my daughter’s name,” she added, revealing the ink on her bicep.
Earlier this summer, the “I Like It” rapper’s hairstylist Luis Santana shared a video on social media of Cardi on a tattoo bed, getting some red ink done their jawline. “Tattoo surprise,” Santana captioned the clip on his Instagram Story, tagging the hip-hop star.
Shortly after, tattoo artist Robinson De Los Santos shared a selfie with Cardi on his own IG Story, with the new facial ink on display, though it wasn’t clear exactly what the tattoo said.
Fans guessed at the time that Cardi may have gotten Wave’s name permanently imprinted on her face, because she hinted at wanting the specific ink in a tweet from earlier this year. “Random but ….I’m 1% close too tatting my sons name on my face….I really really wanna do it!” Cardi wrote.
Wave, who was born on September 2021 is Cardi and her husband Offset’s second child together. Big sister Kulture is the couple’s first born. Offset has also been the father of three additional children through previous relationships.
