Celebrities and questionable tattoos go together like peanut butter and jelly, so it’s no surprise Hailey Bieber has just added new ink to her growing collection. However, the inspiration behind the tattoo and its placement on her body has the Internet asking many questions.
Yesterday, tattoo artist Dr. Woo debuted Hailey’s new ink: the word ‘Lover’ in a fine, cursive font on the left side of her neck underneath a pre-existing crucifix. Instead of lusting over Hailey’s new tattoo, fans were quick to point out it’s in the exact same font as Taylor Swift’s new album ‘Lover.’
If the tattoo is a tribute to Taylor’s new tune, that would make things particularly awkward considering Hailey’s hubby Justin Bieber and Swift found themselves in a nasty feud involving Scooter Braun just a few months ago.
When you move past the Taylor Swift speculation, there’s one question left: when is Hailey going to realise she’s permanently etched the word ‘Lover’ into her neck!? Is she going to regret it one day?
It’s a bold move, but are we really that surprised? She is married to Justin Bieber, after all. That guy covered in tattoos – he even got the world ‘Grace’ inked above his eyebrow, then had it removed a hot second later.
If Hailey follows her husband’s lead, she won’t even have a chance to regret her neck tat if removing it is so simple. Tattoo removal is a costly and painful experience, but if you’re dripping in dollars like the Baldwin-Biebers, perhaps it’s not such a big deal.
Who knows whether Hailey’s tattoo is an ode to Taylor Swift, or a permanent reminder of a drunken night out, but either way she’s a grown woman who can make her own decisions – regretful or not.
