Fans learned about the new design when the Florida native visited L.A.-based hair-colorist Brandon Peach to lighten his strands. After freshening up his mane, the hairdresser snapped some pics of the singer, thus revealing his new tattoo. He now has “Melanie” permanently inked above his right eyebrow.
“Had so much fun hanging out with this guy and bringing him back his signature bright blonde,” Peach wrote in the Instagram photo series on Sunday, March 8. The rapper’s locks undoubtedly got a fierce upgrade, but it’s impossible to ignore his new ink. The stylist chose not to mention the new tattoo in his caption.
It appears as though Carter’s been hiding the ink from his 511k Instagram followers because none of his recent photos display the portion of his face with the new tattoo. Perhaps an official reveal is coming soon.
This isn’t the first time Carter’s surprised fans with a new tattoo. Back in September, Carter tattooed practically the entire left side of his face. The unexpected ink features a Medusa-inspired design and the word “love” underneath of his eye.
During the same visit, he also got a little crescent moon inked onto the other side of his face.
Apparently, the professional inker thought he was simply touching up a design on Carter’s torso rather than tattooing the “I Want Candy” singer’s entire face.
After completing the three tattoos requested by Carter, he urged the artist to keep on inkin.’ “[He] wanted to keep going and I had to stop him,” Carrasco told the outlet. “I couldn’t cover his whole face in a tattoo. I just couldn’t.”
