Celebrity socialite and model Amber Rose grabbed the cover of Inked magazine’s November issue.
Rose showcases her banging body and her body arts in a full spread. She also answered questions about her Tats. See some excerpts below.
When and what was your first tattoo?
I was 15 and I got paw prints on my upper thigh. It was kind of a fad in Philly and all the girls had them.
Do you plan on getting another tattoo? What would it be of?
I want to get two full sleeves eventually, but I just don’t know what I want yet.
How do you manage to ignore the haters and the negativity and remain confident?
It’s not easy—I won’t lie. But I choose to keep my life positive. I’m not perfect, so I ask God to forgive me all the time and thank him for helping me grow into a better woman. That gets me through everything.
Which tattoo of yours was the most painful?
Definitely the flower on my lower stomach; that’s a very sensitive area. I teared up a little.
What are your thoughts on couples showing their love for each other through ink?
Wiz and I did it, but we want to be together forever. So I guess really make sure you want to be with that person forever, and try to wait until you’re older, when you can make better decisions. I suggest getting a small tattoo, just in case you break up—then it’s an easy cover-up.
Have you ever regretted your big arm piece? Does it ever interfere with wardrobe choices?
No. I love my roses and I think it goes with everything I wear.
Have you found that having body art has restricted your career goals in any way?
No, not at all. But when I get my sleeves, it probably will be a problem.
Do you have a certain tattoo artist that is your go-to?
Yes! His name is Tuki [Carter], out of Atlanta.
