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?

The only names I would ever tattoo on my body are the names of my children

I have my son and ‘sisters’ in Hebrew. So does my sister. We got them together and I love both my tattoos. I love my husband but would never put his name on myself. I feel like it would curse my marriage or something! LOL

NEVER get names like that! Your kids, yes. Your mom, sure. Significant other, never. Because you NEVER know. I have bee married 15 years, and I will still never get my husband’s name. And when he said he wanted to tattoo mine on himself, I said h*ll no!

Me on

My husband and I have been married for 34 years and I LOVE tattoos, but I would never tattoo his name on me. To each his/her own.

She calls it ratchet, and she’s dressed like that?

Laura on

She needs to look up the word ratchet. She does not know what it means.

I have My husband name as well as our 2 kids names tattooed around my right ankle… I dont regret it one bit

What’s the big deal if you get their names tattooed on after a long marriage. You can always put “is/was an a$$hole” below it. lol

Robert the father should have pulled out. All his kids are disasters. I am sure he is turning in his grave at their actions. But yes, he should have pulled out and not knocked up the bimbo Kris with all these train wrecks.

She is lighthearted and sweet about a foolhardy thing she did. It’s cute and she learned from it. But everybody has to swoop in and be hateful about it — really? “If you can’t say anything nice,” applies, even on the internet.
Also, she has a GORGEOUS butt!
