Cardi dominated social media this weekend as she revealed a new and huge back tattoo that she got inked on her. The tattoo artist responsible for the amazing look that featured roses, butterflies, and birds is Jamie Schene of Union3Tattoo. She showed off the tattoo while sporting a pair of Christian Louboutin heels and a Birkin handbag.
“Okay guys!” said Cardi on Instagram. Soooo here it is! It took me several months but I’m finally finished. This is my back tattoo! It goes from the top of my back to the middle of my thigh.”
Cardi also went on to say that she added some more weight to her face and body as it appeared that this was a goal of hers. She said “I definitely gained weight on my face, and my whole body but like on my face.”
When Cardi recorded this video, she also sported a green swimsuit while wearing a yellow top over it. As far as the new music goes, she said on Instagram Live that it’s coming “very soon” but she “doesn’t want to give too much information because my fans be watching but also the haters too.” Turns out, the new single will be released sometime this week. This song was initially delayed back in early March due to the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
