Grimes Gets Wild New Tattoo, Plans to Become "Post-Human"
"The long slow effort to have a full alien body — [gonna] be totally covered in white ink"
Published Jan 28, 2022Grimes is continuing her quest to become alien queen of Mars and/or Reddit with another gnarly white-ink tattoo.
A follow-up tattoo to last year's massive extraterrestrial back piece — which Grimes called "beautiful alien scars" — the new ink is on the producer and pop star's upper abdomen and wraps under her breasts. It's in the same spindly, spacey style as her first, and in a series of Instagram stories showing off the new work, Grimes says she's nowhere near done.
"The long slow effort to have a full alien body — gna [sic] be totally covered in white ink…post-human" she wrote on a closeup image of the new tattoo.
Remember when Grimes was just a musician from Montreal who tried to live on a houseboat full of chickens? Simpler times!
Grimes shared the hyper-active, NFT-core video for new song "Shinigami Eyes" earlier this week, and revealed that the single would feature on a new EP called Fairies Cum First, which she described as a "prelude" to her forthcoming full-length — and alleged lesbian AI space opera — Book 1.
