The only episode of the actress' podcast broached the topic of face tattoos. Bynes, who has a notable heart-shaped ink on her face, stated that having tattoos at such a location was no longer a big deal, and nobody cared about them.

"Nobody cares anymore if people have face tattoos. It shouldn't matter," Bynes shared at the time.

L.A.-based tattoo artist Dahlia Moth and her co-host, Paul Sieminski, joined her on the show. The trio also took a photo together, which Bynes posted on her Instagram.

Bynes notably did not talk about herself on the podcast and later confirmed to TMZ that discussions about her mental health were off-limits.

She Was Placed On Two Psychiatric Holds

Fans were excited to see Bynes make a comeback, especially after her incredibly chaotic year, which saw her get placed on two 5150 holds.

The "What A Girl Wants" actress raised concerns in March for a puzzling and concerning incident where she was seen wandering the streets in the buff and even hitchhiking from Hollywood to Beverly Hills.

At the time, it was claimed that she must have been on the street for several days before she was found naked and was subsequently placed on a psychiatric hold.

"Amanda has left the medical facility on her own recognizance," an insider told the Daily Mail after her treatment at a mental facility. "She was very cooperative and participated in her recovery; the staff supported her decision to leave as she had successfully completed the treatment program."

A few months after she left the facility, another incident happened in June when she called the cops on herself again. She was swiftly taken to a nearby station where she was considered "a danger to herself and others." Bynes was then placed back on 5150 psychiatric hold, which was extended at her family's request.

After these two events, Bynes seems to be on the mend and has had no issues ever since. We wish her the best as she chases her manicurist license.
