- Chrissy Teigen just got a new tattoo of all her family member’s birth dates.
- In dainty numbers, the tattoo shows the birthdays of Chrissy’s parents, husband John Legend, and their kids Luna and Miles.
- While some love Chrissy’s tattoo, others have criticized it for its resemblance to tattoos forced upon Jewish people during the Holocaust.
Chrissy Teigen just got a new tattoo celebrating her family. While getting tatted up is already a BFD, this one is especially significant to the model and Bring the Funny judge. Chrissy shared photos from the experience—along with the final result, natch—on Instagram. And the reaction was…mixed.
“Cool mom back at it again with @winterstone!!!!” Chrissy captioned several photos of herself getting tattooed. (A publicist for Daniel Winter, a.k.a. Winter Stone, an LA tattoo artist, told Women’s Health in a press release that this is Chrissy’s third tattoo with him.)
In one shot, Chrissy can be seen giving her tattoo artist the side eye as he works on her. In another, you can see a close-up of the action going down. And, in the final photo, you see the result.
The tattoo is a series of numbers going up Chrissy’s forearm. Though she didn’t explain the significance of the tattoo herself, multiple fans pointed out that it marks the birthdates of Chrissy’s father Ron Teigen Sr., mother Vilailuck Teigen, husband John Legend, and their kids Luna and Miles.
John joked in the comments that Chrissy’s new tat is “the ultimate mnemonic device!” a.k.a. a great way to help her remember all those birthdays.
Plenty of people in the comments said they were into Chrissy’s latest ink. “Love itttttttt,” said fellow model Tess Holliday. Others wanted to know the meaning behind it (luckily, internet sleuths cleared it up for them).
And some straight-up hated it, noting that it looked similar to the way Jewish people were forcibly tattooed during the Holocaust. “Yikes really strong holocaust vibes,” one person wrote. “Idk I think this would make any Jewish person very uncomfortable even if unintentionally,” another said, while others chimed in with things like “it’s definitely making me uncomfortable.”
Chrissy has yet to comment on the backlash.
