Kaia Gerber is now the proud owner of some DIY ink. The 18-year-old model, who’s amassed quite the collection of tiny tattoos in just a few short years, recently added a new design all by herself while stuck at home in quarantine.
“I’ve been struggling because one of my favorite pastimes was going and getting tattoos, and nobody’s been able to do that,” Gerber told Glamour on Thursday. “So in the meantime, I gave myself a stick and poke, which I do not recommend.”
Continued the catwalker, “I think I have a newfound appreciation for tattoo artists. It’s not easy.”
Luckily, Gerber didn’t attempt an intricate design. “I didn’t get too ambitious,” she admitted. “I gave myself a dot, just so I could be like, ‘Alright, I got a tattoo this month, I’m cool.’”
The style star’s more easily visible tattoos include the Picasso painting on the inside of her arm, the winged angel on her ribs and “Jordan” (her middle name) on her inner bicep.
“It’s hard to pick a favorite!” Gerber told Glamour. “I think I was so worried I was going to regret every tattoo I got, and they all represent such an important time in my life, even if the tattoo itself doesn’t have much importance. It’s like they’re all memories, so I don’t feel like I could ever see myself regretting them.”
