Amber Rose is certainly no stranger to tattoos (in fact, she has them all over her arms and back), but her latest ink session was a particularly special one, as she had her sons’ names tatted — onto her face, no less.
The 36-year-old first showed off her fresh face ink this week in a YouTube video for a brand called CoolKicks, a Los Angeles-based company that sells new and used sneakers. She appeared in the video alongside her music-executive boyfriend, Alexander “aka AE” Edwards, who is the father of her youngest son, three-month-old Slash Electric Alexander Edwards.
Both tattoos, which read “Slash” and “Bash” (the latter is a nickname for her seven-year-old son, Sebastian Taylor), are written in cursive letters on her forehead, front and center right below her hairline. For those who don’t know, Rose shares her older son with her ex-husband, Wiz Khalifa.
Shortly after the video was released, Rose took to Instagram to give fans a better look at the tattoos in a post that reads, “When ur Mom lets you draw on ur Barbie 😏 #Bash #Slash @el_jacob_ramirez.” In the photo, Rose’s arm tattoos are also on full display, and she looks as badass as ever. As for the artist behind her new ink, that would be none other than Hollywood favorite, Jacob Ramirez. Ramirez re-posted Rose’s photo to his own account with the caption, “Thank you @amberrose for trusting me with such a special piece #BashandSlash #eljacobramirez #scripttattoo.”
So far, Rose has received a slew of positive comments from loving fans — though sadly, she’s also gotten her fair share of rude ones. For instance, some folks left comments like, “Please say this isn’t real! Why would anyone in their RIGHT mind do such a thing. She has such a gorgeous face. Shame!” and “Why on your beautiful face 😤🥺😥 Of all places?” On the flip side, her supporters chimed in with messages like, “Beautiful!!! Your body your rules 🔥🖤🖤🖤” and “Mom goals 🔥😍.”
It goes without saying, but the talk show host can do whatever she wants with her body and doesn’t need anyone’s two cents. Congrats on adding to your tattoo collection, Rose!
