How many tattoos does Cardi B have?

In September 2021, Cardi B and her husband Offset welcomed their second child, a baby boy.

At this time, the name of her baby boy is still unknown, however, she reportedly wants to get his name tattooed on her face.

“Random but ….I’m 1% close to tatting my son’s name on my face…I really really wanna do it!” the “WAP” rapper tweeted on January 17.

“I want mine on my jaw,” she later added.

The news of her new tattoo consideration comes one year after the rapper told fans that she was “thankful” that she did not get any tattoos on her face as a teenager.

“Every day I’m thankful at the fact that [I] ain’t get this face tatt I wanted when I was 16,” she tweeted in 2021, adding that she initially wanted “little stars from the top of my eyebrow swirling down to my jaw.”

What tattoos does Cardi B have?

Cardi B has several tattoos. On March 18, 2022, Cardi B displayed her new back tattoo on her Instagram page.

The caption of the post reads: “Last night.” The picture for the post featured a multi-colored floral design on her back.

On February 11, 2022, Cardi B tried her hands at tattooing for the first time as seen on her Facebook show called Cardi Tries.

Using her husband as a canvas for her tattoo, she stated: “Hey guys, I’m going to do something crazy for Valentine’s Day for my husband. I’m going to give him a tattoo, you know, I wanna do something really special, so make sure you guys check out this episode where me and Set are getting tatted.”

The episode sees Cardi B tattooing the numbers of their wedding date, 9/20/17, on Offset’s hand.

Also, in June 2020, Cardi showed fans on Twitter her coverup tattoo of a butterfly on her neck. She previously had the name “Samuel” in the same location.

She also has the hand sign for “I love you,” along with a red star tattooed behind her right ear, as well as a flower piece that extends from her left leg all the way up her back.

That piece reportedly took over 60 hours to complete.

On her right side, Cardi also has a massive peacock tattoo that extends from her mid-thigh up over her lower back.

Other tattoos include:

“Belkis,” which is a abbreviated version of her real name, is tattooed on her wrist
“Offset” is tattooed on her leg
“Hennessey” is also tattooed on her arm
