Grimes is no stranger to white ink tattoos — and she’s now considering getting one on her face.
She asked her Instagram users for their thoughts on the possibility of an addition to her band, at 34 years old, while sharing a colorful selfie.
“I am very seriously considering getting a white ink tattoo on my face next week,” Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, captioned the social media upload.
“Any thoughts?” she asked. “It feels like it’s time.”
While the artist did not say when the selfie was taken, it happened almost one week after her photo with her bandaged face. This led to speculations that the musician had undergone elf ear surgery.
While some of the songwriter’s fans speculated about her “swelling,” the majority shared their support for her desired ink in the comments.
Many simply wrote, “do it.” One Instagram user added, “I will get a matching one.”
In January, Grimes wrote via Stories that she is in the middle of a “long slow effort to have a full alien body … totally covered in white ink.”
The “Alter Ego” judge gave a glimpse of her new chest tattoo at the time, completed with the help of tattoo artist Tweakt and digital designer Nusi Quero.
Grimes tasked the same duo with covering her back in a tangled web of white lines, meant to represent “alien scars,” in April 2021.
“[It’s] a courageous and beautiful decision and talisman she will carry with her from here forward, an armor, a spectral field that will affect and protect her in ways unknown but no doubt with a benevolence of some kind,” Quero said of the ink, which was completed in a single session.
Grimes, who has showcased many more tattoos on her head and hands, told Teen Vogue in April 2016 that she often doesn’t decide on the art she wants until “10 minutes” prior.
The record producer added at the time that she sees her image as a way to “enhance” her artistic projects.
“The way you dress, even if it’s just a shirt and pants, is a statement in itself whether you like it or not,” she explained.
Two years later, the “My Sister” singer was romantically linked to Elon Musk for the first time, and they made their red carpet debut at the Met Gala.
Both the on-again-off-again couple had a turbulent relationship. They co-parent two children, son X AEA-XII, 2 and daughter Exa at 9 months.
After having their first child through surrogate, the couple split.
“Me and E have broken up *again*,” Grimes tweeted In March. “he’s my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are forever dedicated to The Mission now.”
The Tesla CEO Shivon Zilis, 51, announced that he had welcomed twins in November 2021 with Neuralink Executive Shivon Zilis.
Musk shares Vivian (18) and Griffin (16), twins with Justine Musk. He also has triplets Kai, Saxon,, and Damian (16) with Justine Musk.
