This past weekend, celebrities and beauty aficionados alike touched down at the Los Angeles Convention Center for Beautycon LA. Much like ESSENCE’s Beauty Carnival, it’s a playground of sorts for consumers to interact with some of their favorite beauty brands, and to discover new brands to love.
This year’s event was full of some of favorite beauties to watch, including Marsai Martin, Tyra Banks, Ciara, and Megan Thee Stallion. They were all bringing it in the ways we’ve come to enjoy and expect from them.
But it was Jhené Aiko who truly had our hearts. With her hair in a shoulder length wave, lips painted a vibrant red, and gorgeous ebony eye makeup, she made her mark on the festival. But it wasn’t her undeniably gorgeous hair and face that made her look truly stand out.
Her fluttery off the shoulder crop top allowed for a full view of the singer’s colorful tattoo which extends across her entire back (and even makes its way onto the back of her arms).
The “Triggered” singer has several tattoos, and is known for expressing herself through her ink. Her half dragon, half phoenix tattoo is actually a work that covered up other tattoos that she previously had across her back, sides, and on her arms (including the face of her ex Big Sean), proving that you can ink yourself a completely new look. We haven’t seen Aiko’s new ink a ton since she first revealed it earlier this year. But it’s bold, it’s creative, and we’re here for it.
What do you think about Jhené Aiko’s back covering tattoo?
