Grimes is debating a face tattoo: ‘Feels like it’s time’

Grimes is no stranger to white ink tattoos — and she’s now considering getting one on her face.

The singer, 34, asked her Instagram followers for their opinion of the possible addition on Friday while sharing a colorful selfie.

“I am very seriously considering getting a white ink tattoo on my face next week,” Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, captioned the social media upload.

“Any thoughts?” she asked. “It feels like it’s time.”

Although the musician did not clarify when she snapped the selfie, it came nearly one week after she shared a photo of her bandaged face and sparked rumors that she got elf ear surgery.

While some of the songwriter’s fans speculated about her “swelling,” the majority shared their support for her desired ink in the comments.

Many simply wrote, “do it.” One Instagram user added, “I will get a matching one.”

In January, Grimes wrote via Stories that she is in the middle of a “long slow effort to have a full alien body … totally covered in white ink.”

The “Alter Ego” judge gave a glimpse of her new chest tattoo at the time, completed with the help of tattoo artist Tweakt and digital designer Nusi Quero.

Grimes tasked the same duo with covering her back in a tangled web of white lines, meant to represent “alien scars,” in April 2021.

“[It’s] a courageous and beautiful decision and talisman she will carry with her from here forward, an armor, a spectral field that will affect and protect her in ways unknown but no doubt with a benevolence of some kind,” Quero said of the ink, which was completed in a single session.

Grimes, who has showcased many more tattoos on her head and hands, told Teen Vogue in April 2016 that she often doesn’t decide on the art she wants until “10 minutes” prior.

The record producer added at the time that she sees her image as a way to “enhance” her artistic projects.

The musician has been vocal about wanting elf ear surgery.

“The way you dress, even if it’s just a shirt and pants, is a statement in itself whether you like it or not,” she explained.

Two years later, the “My Sister” singer was romantically linked to Elon Musk for the first time, and they made their red carpet debut at the Met Gala.

The on-again, off-again couple have had a tumultuous relationship and currently co-parent son X AE A-XII, 2, and daughter Exa, 9 months.

The duo split earlier this year after welcoming their youngest child via surrogate.

“Me and E have broken up *again*,” Grimes tweeted in March. “he’s my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are forever dedicated to The Mission now.”

News broke the following month that the Tesla CEO, 51, welcomed twins with Neuralink executive Shivon Zilis in November 2021.

Musk also shares twins Vivian and Griffin, 18, and triplets Kai, Saxon and Damian, 16, with his ex-wife Justine Musk.
