Fresh ink! Cardi B completes her extensive body art collection with her first face tattoo
Cardi B decided to add new artwork to her already extensive tattoo collection.
The 29-year-old Bodak Yellow rapper was spotted in a video posted on Instagram by the tattoo artist Robinson DeLos Santos on Sunday, while getting the side of her jaw tattooed.
The short thirteen-second clip shows the musician covering her face while Santos works on the design, which resembles letters in red ink.

“Today’s work Cardi B,” he captioned the video clip in Spanish.
Santos also shared a selfie of him and Cardi that partly showed the singer’s new design, although neither has spoken about the meaning of the tattoo.
Fans in the comments reacted to the new body art with mixed feelings, warning that a facial tattoo is never a good idea.

“OMG not a good move…I love cardi.B trust…NEVA the face takes away your beauty….” wrote one follower.
Another added: “Well, don’t screw up your face with tattoos, your body is okay, but the face isn’t.”
But others defended her choice, with one fan writing, “Her body her choice, you all buggin and what she does doesn’t even affect your daily life.”

“Random but….I’m 1% too close to typing my son’s name on my face….I really want to do it!” she wrote in a Tweet at the time, sharing that she wanted the new tattoo on her jaw.
