In a video unveiling the art, the Chicago native is seen lying on a chair with both eyes closed while Campbell works on her shoulder. The clip soon showed Rizzo smiling as she held and played with a boa albino snake in her hand.

The footage wrapped up with an uplose view of the "FabLife" star's tattoo. Rizzo, who donned a black-and-white checkered shirt over a white crop top and blue jeans, wrote in her accompanying caption:

"Had the best day getting tattooed by and hanging with the talented @scottcampbell (and a pet snake)... and can't wait to share more soon about a fun project we did."

Regarding her new relationship, the "Unfiltered with Kelly Rizzo" host and Meyer were the cynosure of all eyes when they posed on the red carpet of Janie's Fund charity event.

Rizzo looked stunning in a leopard print dress paired with leather boots as she embraced her new beau, who opted for a more casual look with a graphic tee, slacks, and a denim jacket.

While speaking to E! about debuting her romance publicly, she confessed, "It took a while to get to the point where I'm like, 'OK, I think he'd be happy with it.'"

Rizzo also shared that she felt empowered to make her new relationship public thanks to Saget's three adult daughters being supportive and cheering her on as she embarked on this new chapter.

"It's wonderful, it just meant so much to have their blessing. They're just angels. And to have them support is so meaningful," she said of the women whom her late husband shared with ex-wife Sherri Kramer.

Kelly Rizzo Admitted To Feeling Guilty About Enjoying Life Following Her Husband's Death

Rizzo first opened up about returning to the dating scene in October 2023, when she disclosed her willingness to go on a date if asked during an interview. According to The Blast, she also talked about experiencing "survivor's guilt" following Saget's passing at 65 in 2022. 

She admitted to feeling guilty for experiencing moments of happiness, expressing, "You feel guilty about that, but then I learned that's very normal. Now that enough time has passed, even his girls are always like, 'That's silly. Heavenly Bob wants you to be happy."

Rizzo even playfully proposed that Saget's "earthly" and "heavenly" selves might have contrasting views on her happiness, quipping, "Earthly Bob would've probably said, 'Not too thrilled.'"

The Eat Travel Rock founder's reflective demeanor was previously seen when she posted a tribute to Saget on the first anniversary of his passing. After acknowledging the hole that grief left in her life, Rizzo stated:

"I am the luckiest that I got to be his wife. I am the luckiest that I got to live with his warmth, laughter, and brilliance, and love. I am the luckiest that I get to have his girls by my side. I am the luckiest that I got to watch him first-hand help people, make them happy, and make the world a better place."
