Amber Rose Shows Off Her Tattoos on the Cover of “Urban Ink” and “Inked” Magazines
Amber Rose put her many tattoos on display on the cover of not just one … but TWO celebrity tattoo magazines!
Wiz Khalifa’s girlfriend’s body art is on display on the cover of the November 2011 issue of Inked Magazine, as well as the cover of Inked Magazine’s December 2011 issue.
Peep both covers, in addition to Inked Magazine’s Q&A and photoshoot with Rose, below:
What makes you feel sexy?
When I have a fresh cut and a tan.
What made you cut off all your hair?
When I was a little girl I used to love Sinéad O’Connor’s video and song “Nothing Compares 2 U.” I knew I wanted to look as beautiful as she did one day, so when I was old enough to make my own decisions, at 19, I cut it off, and it’s been over eight years now.
Was the decision to cut your hair easy to do, or was it something you went back and forth on?
I knew I wanted to do it really bad, but I was scared. As a woman your hair is your confidence. But once I did it, I never went back.
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.
