With a new reality-TV series, upcoming album, shapewear line, and now, a fresh tattoo under her belt, Lizzo has had quite the busy month. On March 30, shortly after announcing Yitty, a shapewear brand named after a childhood nickname, the “About Damn Time” singer finally unveiled her new (temporary) ink, a tattoo on her butt reading “Yitty” in the same font as the brand’s logo. In a photo posted to her Instagram, she showed off the tattoo while wearing underwear from the collection and even sported matching nails.
Prior to the reveal, Lizzo teased both the tattoo and her new endeavor, offering a sneak peek on her Instagram on Tuesday. In the video, a friend is seen pulling a temporary sheet off her skin, but the clip cuts out before the full word is shown. “I CANT WAIT TO SHOW YALL MY NEW ASS TATTOO- UNTIL THEN U GOTTA PRE-SAVE *MY NEW SONG* ‘ABOUT DAMN TIME,'” she wrote. At the time, fans guessed she’d gotten a decal of her album release date or the name of her upcoming album.
For non-tattooers like Lizzo – who has no visible tats – or those who have commitment issues, temporary iterations are the perfect solution, and there are plenty of brands out there that specialize in the art. At the Off-White show in Paris earlier this month, Kaia Gerber and Kendall Jenner were among the many models on the runway with fake face decals under their eyes. Ahead, get a closer look at Lizzo’s new ink.
