Halsey has joined the face tattoo club! The “Bad at Love” singer had some new ink to debut this week and, as with her 90s-inspired neck tattoo, she chose a rather unusual spot.
Taking to Instagram, the 23-year-old showed off a dainty queen of diamonds symbol on the side of her face, just in front of her ear lobe. Referencing the lyrics of her 2015 “Badlands” hit, which end with the words, “They want to make me their queen,” she wrote, “Headed straight for the castle.”
She also gave a shout-out to her tattoo artist, Nal C. I. Tattoo, saying, “Thanks for my first (and only hopefully lol) face tattoo.”
While the look is more subtle than say, Kat Von D’s famous stars, it’s still a plenty-noticeable addition to the performer’s ever-growing collection.
As we reported back in January, the musician is far from an ink rookie — she has more than 20 pieces of artwork on her body, including her most recent script addition of the words “I’m a loser baby” scrawled across her neck.
The new piece is small enough to be discreet while Halsey hits the stage, something she expressed concern over in a 2016 radio interview with 102.7 KIISFM. “I’m too nervous to get one and then have to perform,” she said at the time. “Because I don’t want to have to perform with like a bandage.”
