Is Ireland Baldwin another celebrity with a face tattoo?!

On Tuesday, September 8, the 24-year-old took to Instagram to share a set of beautiful selfies featuring a tiny black heart on the outside of her right eye. This left many to wonder whether it was real or not including her mom, Kim Basinger.

“You better not had……” the L.A. Confidential star commented. “That’s all I can say……….”

However, the model clarified in a series of Instagram Story posts. “Everyone thinks this f–king s–t is real,” she says at the start of the first video. “Like as if!”

She then zooms in on the design to reveal a bit of smudging that would only come from a fake tat likely drawn on with a pen. “It’s f–king dripping you a–holes.”

In the next video she continues, “Everyone is like ‘don’t get a face tattoo. Don’t get a face tattoo.” She then licks her fingers and wipes it every more. “Look at this.”

Well Basinger sure will be relieved!

Though this would have been Baldwin’s first face tattoo, she isn’t a body art newbie. She has at least 24 other tattoos. On her forearms alone she has a skeleton, a bra and a Hello Kitty. Not to mention, face tats are all the rage amongst celebrities.

This year alone we’ve seen A-listers like Amber Rose, Chris Brown and Presley Gerber get designs on their face. In February Rose debuted ink on her forehead that reads “Bash Slash,” courtesy of artist Jacob Ramirez, as a tribute to her kids. Brown got a Nike Air Jordan 3 Sneaker on the right side of his face while Gerber stirred up all kinds of backlash when he got “misunderstood” inked on the right side of his face. “He is definitely going through something bigger and more than that,” the insider told Us back in March after the 20-year-old debuted the design. “It’s hard for his parents to see.”
