While assisting in the organization of hairstylist Chris Appleton’s Las Vegas wedding weekend, Kim Kardashian introduces an unexpected topic—tattoos. Surprising everyone, the 43-year-old star reveals a shocking secret in the November 9 episode of The Kardashians: her concealed lip tattoo. Kim discloses that she acquired the lip tattoo following her hosting stint on Saturday Night Live on October 9, 2021.
Revealing the tattoo to Chris, Kim lowers her lip to display a modest infinity symbol on the inside of her lower lip. Following her Saturday Night Live hosting debut, Kim and her friends opted for matching tattoos, with the others choosing the infinity symbol on their hands. However, Kim took a unique approach, opting for the discreet placement of the symbol on her lip.
Hosting SNL in 2021 turned out to be a particularly unforgettable evening for Kim. It marked the inception of her romance with Pete Davidson, a relationship that spanned from October 2021 to August 2022. During their time together, Pete commemorated their connection with tattoos, including “my girl is a lawyer” near his collarbone and “Kim” inked on his chest.
Kim shares footage of the night she received her lip tattoo, capturing the moment with La La Anthony by her side, assisting as the tattoo artist works on Kim’s lip. Playfully remarking to Chris, “I finally put a bumper sticker on a Bentley,” Kim confesses that her lip tattoo is a well-kept secret, known to very few. She even admits to forgetting about it most of the time. However, Kim does acknowledge that occasionally, she startles herself when catching a glimpse of the black ink on her lip during a routine like flossing her teeth.
In 2009, Kim made headlines for discussing her tattoo-free status during an interview on The Wendy Williams Show. Responding to Wendy’s inquiry about her lack of tattoos, Kim quipped, “Honey, would you put a bumper sticker on a Bentley?” Fast forward to the present, and times have indeed changed for Kim Kardashian! Currently, Kim orchestrates an extraordinary wedding weekend for her longtime hairstylist and Lukas Gage. The surprises include a special Shania Twain performance, and Kim even takes on the role of officiating their ceremony. Catch the latest episodes of The Kardashians airing Thursdays on Hulu.
