Kanye West Wanted a Face Tattoo, But Kim Kardashian Talked Him Out of It

Pin It
While most of us were in bed sleeping at 4:00 this morning, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were at the tattoo parlor. "Four in the mornin' and he's zonin'," Kim captioned the above picture of Yeezy, referencing his hit 'Black Skinhead.'

In the pic, he's getting ink on his wrist, but he actually wanted to get the tattoo on his face. Yes, his face. "I talked him out of getting a face tattoo...for now," Kim shared with her 27 million Instagram followers. "He got it on his wrists instead. His mothers birthdate and North's birthdate in Roman numerals."

Kanye's mom, Donda, died in 2007 at the age of 58 from complications following a plastic surgery operation. The rapper's recently released "Only One" song is a tribute to his late mother.

"Everyone asks me what my favorite Kanye song is. It's Only One. Kanye felt like his mom was singing thru him to our daughter," Kim shared on Instagram the night the song was released. "This song makes me cry every time I hear it."

We think it's sweet that he got those tattoos...and we're really glad Kim talked him out of getting them on his face.
