Kendall Jenner takes her astrological sign very seriously.
On September 29, the 26-year-old Scorpio debuted the image of large scorpion representing her star sign right on her derriere. The photo was a part of a series of images taken by photographer Stevie Dance for the 45th issue of The Pop Mag. Along with the cover photo, which featured Jenner in a backward cap with an irreverent facial expression, the model shared a series of black-and-white images and a video on Instagram that showed off the “tattoo” in all its glory. “We get it, you’re a Scorpio,” she captioned the slideshow, which you can see here.
No, it’s not a real tattoo. In another Instagram post by Dance, the photographer revealed that the black scorpion was hand-painted by makeup artist Fara Homidi. “When @stevie_dance asks you to hand paint a 🦂 and do it fast…you just go go go,” Homidi commented on the photo. “LU, thanks for this moment S, and for your generosity @kendalljenner.”
When it comes to modeling, Kendall Jenner has always been game for anything. Recently the reality star reflected on her first high fashion show in 2014. At 18 years of age, Jenner was unfazed by Marc Jacobs’s request for her to walk the runway in a completely sheer top and bleached eyebrows.
“I remember getting a call from my agent saying that Marc and Katie [Grand] wanted to put me in this kind of sheer top, and I was like, ‘I’m game. I don’t mind. I’m all good with the nipple,’” she said in Vogue’s “Life in Looks” video. “It didn’t make me any more nervous. I genuinely was just like, ‘Dope, whatever they want; it’s their vision, let’s do it.’ So I was completely comfortable.”
Jenner dove headfirst into walking lessons and never looked back. “I actually could not believe I was there,” she said. “I was pretty chill, even though my boobies were out.”
