Adrienne Bailon: My Rob Kardashian Butt Tattoo Is 'Ratchet'

We all have youthful beauty indiscretions that we’d rather not discuss, like orange highlights or bad spray tanning. But Adrienne Bailon may have us all beat.

“Everybody knows I have the ratchetest booty tattoo of an ex-boyfriend,” she said on her new chat show The Real. “I don’t know what I was thinking.”

And, she points out, it’s not like this particular ex had a short and sweet, easy-to-remove name. “Ten letter last name, Kardashian,” she says, noting that she included his first name and middle initial too. “I made a very bad decision. Don’t follow my example.”

Bailon has given us plenty of opportunities to check out where she may have placed this particular ink, but she said that she made it as tiny as possible so it’s hard to spot. “It was sized down so much that it started looking like a little black blob.”

Before you ask, yes, she is in the process of getting it lasered off. But it’s not going well. “You can smell your flesh burning,” she says, “and it’s your ass flesh burning. Booty tattoos, names of other men … don’t do it!”

Tell us: Do you have any tattoos you regret?

Well duh. Never get a guys name tattooed on your body. I have one name, my son.

I very carefully thought out where I put my 2 tattoos…One is on the inside of my right thigh, and the other is on the upper part of my lower left arm, right below the elbow bend…and yes, that one is my husbands name…I don’t regret either one…afterall…we have been married for 24 years, and we don’t plan on getting a divorce, (not that anyone does), but we plan on being together till one of us dies. So far, so good.

She speaks common sense which she obviously lacks. He does too and his is way bigger and worse! What were they thinking?!

kim on

Congrats Tammy! Hope you have a long, healthy and happy life together.

it may be a mistake, but its hurtful and rude for either one of them to continue to speak about it publicly. Get it removed and move on.

PJ on

I agree NEVER EVER put a guy or gals name on your skin because you NEVER know what will happen! Tammy, I hope you do have a happy life with your husband,but even tho you say how happy you are together,you really don’t know what will happen from day to day! I don’t even think I would ever have even thought of getting my now exes name on me & thank God I didn’t!!
I have 2 tatts, 1 I absolutely love on my back & the other on my chest that I got on a whim many many years ago & now wish I hadn’t! (no,not anyone’s name). I will be getting another one some day, & I will be very choosy about what I get, & where I get it!!

I could see SMALL initials or something, but his whole name written very large?!?!? no way.

It seems sensible to only get names tattooed of people that will never change in your life and are precious. Parents or children. Nothing changes that.

Liz on

No sh-t Sherlock!!! Anyone who gets a tattoo of their significant other’s name is a complete idiot!!
