Lizzo got a butt tattoo well, kind of. The “Juice” singer is promoting her new single, “It’s About Damn Time,” on Instagram by teasing ink on her derriere.
“I CANT WAIT TO SHOW YALL MY NEW ASS TATTOO— UNTIL THEN U GOTTA PRE-SAVE *MY NEW SONG* ‘ABOUT DAMN TIME’ LINK IN, UM, FREAKIN UM, BIO, MAN ” she wrote on Instagram alongside a one-second clip of someone peeling paper from her behind to almost reveal a design, scored by the titular line from her upcoming song.
In the video, posted on Monday, March 28, an ungloved hand removes covering from her skin. If you’ve ever gotten a tattoo I have! With my mommy! So cute, I know you know that’s not really how it goes. That hand would be in a latex glove, for one. Just check out this TikTok of Charli D’Amelio, Iris Apatow, Olivia Rodrigo, and Avani Gregg getting matching finger tats for a glimpse at a tattoo artist at work.
For another, permanent tattoos are a little bloody at first and covered with a see-through film for protection. Temporary transfer tats, however, go on exactly like the one on Lizzo. Not calling her a liar! She said it was a tattoo, and a tattoo it is. Just pointing out that if you’re going to get a genuine tattoo of your own, don’t expect it to go like this.
Lizzo has a history of using her body to promote her music, and why shouldn’t she? If you’re going to be looked at anyway, might as well get some streams out of it!
In addition to her new music and her new booty accessory, Lizzo is celebrating the release of her Amazon Prime reality show, Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, a dance competition for a spot on her next tour. And like every dance nowadays, there is an accompanying TikTok challenge. About damn time too.
