Grimes just unveiled their latest ink … and it’s totally out of this world.
On Sunday April 11, the musician revealed her huge new back tattoo on Instagram, describing the design as “beautiful alien scars.”
The all-white design features an intricate network of lines that stretch from the “Delete Forever” singer’s shoulders to her tailbone. The piece is a work of artist Tweakt, which was later crafted by Nusi Quero’s “alien computer brain”.
Quero detailed the process behind the tattoo design in an Instagram story. “@tweakt drew the basic shapes on an iPad and then sent me the image file,” he explained. “I turned it into 3D geometry, selected vertices on the shape, and guided and grew the embellishments along and around the shapes that he first laid out with a series of procedural operators (mathematical rules) d ‘a way that I thought spoke to her forms. and @grimes. “
“Don’t have a good photo because it hurts too much and I need to sleep haha, and it will be red for a few weeks, but it will be nice alien scars,” Grimes wrote in the caption of her post. “Hope everyone is having a good day.”

Since revealing her latest tattoo online, Grimes has received comments from some of her famous followers. Singers Princess Nokia and Ashnikko, TikTok star Bella Poarch and makeup artist Paige Piskin all responded with compliments.
Grimes (née Claire Boucher) has always lined up with the unusual, from her daring fashion choices to the decision of her and boyfriend Elon Musk to name their baby X Æ A-12. That said, it’s no surprise that her new back tattoo is as unique as she is. We can’t wait to see what he looks like when he heals completely.
