Kaia Gerber’s change of heart over love tattoo: Model reveals faded ink on her shoulder as she hits red carpet


Kaia Gerber walked the red carpet at the 2021 InStyle Awards on Monday night in a glittering white gown.

The 20-year-old rising star looked glamorous as ever, but there was one noticeable difference in her appearance.

The brunette beauty appears to have begun removing a tiny tattoo on her shoulder.

Gerber’s arms were on full display In the sleeveless white number by Alexander McQueen, calling attention to the subtle shift. 

Another tattoo was visible right underneath her arm – an angel on her ribs. Additionally, the word ‘prez’ could be seen inked on the catwalk queen’s other shoulder.

The disappearing scribble was once an etch of a female torso with the arm’s crossed into a self-hug, giving the image a heart shape.

Kaia had it less than two years, as she added it to her collection in January 2020. 

The 5ft9in stunner has a series of fine-lined tattoos throughout her model figure. 

She began committing to the permanent marks only three years ago in 2018. 

Her collection includes a ‘444’ on her right arm, ’23’ on her elbow, the words ‘STRAWBERRY FIELDS’ on her back, a rocket ship, a wine glass, and more.

The American Horror Story actress even has matching designs with her BFF, singer-songwriter Charlotte Lawrence.

Kaia isn’t the only Gerber to backtrack on her tattoo choices – she’s following in the steps of her big brother Presley Gerber, 22, who also reversed what was once intended to be a permanent doodle.

Earlier this year in August, Presley started the removal process for a face tattoo that read ‘misunderstood.’

It was inscribed on his cheek under his left eye. 

Just a year and a half after getting the adjective written on his visage, he changed his mind and decided against it. 

In the past the sibling duo has gone for their tattoo sessions together.
