Simone Biles certainly brought plenty of joy to 2016, and while it may feel like we could practically be besties with the 20-year-old Olympian at this point, there may still be a few things you don’t know about the wildly inspiring Biles. That includes the fact that she previously had no body art. But that’s just changed, as the multiple-medal-winner just got her very first tattoo, and it couldn’t be more perfect.
Making a date of the sitch with bae, singer-songwriter Jake Miller, the pair both took a turn in the chair as Miller got a totally suitable music-related tattoo and Simone… well, she couldn’t have picked anything more significant if she tried.
Showing off her new ink, simple black Olympic rings on her forearm, Biles shared a series of pics on Instagram with the message, “first tat 😇 never too late to get the rings tatted 🤙🏾 thanks for taking me neighbor ☺️ @jakemiller.”
Miller also shared a pic of the pair, saying, “Took @simonebiles to get her first tattoo last night 🙈 I think she was more nervous than she was at the olympics lol.” Though that’s absolutely adorable, it’s also totally understandable since this was a brand new experience for Biles, and when it comes to competing, there’s no doubt that she knows exactly what’s up. Seriously, she has the medals to prove it.
