Paris Jackson’s tattoo collection just got a little (er, make that a lot) bigger! The 19-year-old has made no secret of her affinity for body art, getting another tribute piece to her late father on her foot back in June and a matching pair of spoons with Godfather Macauley Cullkin in July. She’s back at it this month, adding to what she told Rolling Stone in January was an assortment of more than 50 tattoos with a massive sternum piece of all seven Chakras, from LA artist Sweetpea.
The Star actress gave us a peek at the finished product over on Instagram, posing in an open kimono that showed off her perfectly centered artwork.
While she didn’t explain the artwork’s personal meaning, the image represents the seven centers of the body through which energy is said to flow, including the root, or tailbone chakra, which represents a feeling of groundedness, the sacral chakra (our connection to others and new experiences), solar plexus chakra (thought to rule our ability to to be confident and in control), heart chakra (for love), throat chakra (how we communicate), third eye chakra (to represent focus and our view of the big picture), and the crown chakra (for spirituality).
The IMG model did speak on what tattoos mean to her overall back in 2016, offering up a rather telling caption along with a throwback post in 2016.
“The craftsmanship of tattoos will always be a controversy,” she wrote at the time. “Some people like them, some people absolutely hate them. I appreciate art, I always have. Especially when that art means something to me. Today I can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me, I don’t see a dark past anymore. My scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity… and depth. Sure, I will always carry my past with me, but I see ink as a way of changing for the better, always improving. They represent strength for me. I look back at my old self and then I look in the mirror, and I see a fighter looking back at me.”
Sounds like reason enough to us!
