Video vixen Amber Rose continues to raise eyebrows by recently getting spotted sporting a face tattoo which had led to online speculation on whether or not the ink is permanent.
A photo of Rose's eye-catching new look alongside boyfriend/rapper Wiz Khalifa has begun circulating online.
On Saturday night, Amber Rose was spotted out outside a Miami nightclub with boyfriend Wiz Khalifa and a peculiar looking thing on her face: a lightning bolt tattoo. This morning, her rep denied the permanence of the her new ink, clarifying that the Harry Potter-meets-Mike Tyson art on her face was simply done with temporary makeup. (Complex)
When asked why she did not pretend the ink was legit, Rose told a Twitter follower she did not want to lead a potential movement.
"@HONKIEKONG Nah cuz I don't want my young Rosebuds to go get tatted cuz they think I did totally understand what ur saying tho :-)," she tweeted January 30th. (Amber Rose's Twitter)
Her facial tat is the latest trend since Rose was spotted wearing a long, dark wig last month.
What a way to go undercover! Amber Rose was spotted rocking out to the tunes of her boo Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg this past weekend at the Tabernacle in Atlanta. She was almost unrecognizable as she stood at the side of the stage rocking a white blazer, wolford tights and a long dark wig. Meanwhile, Wiz and Snoop tore it down, performing some of their latest collabos off of their new soundtrack, 'Mac & Devin Go To High School' from their upcoming movie with the same name.

Last year, G-Unit rap star 50 Cent offered his take on hip-hop artists like Gucci Mane tatooing their faces.
"That's the craziest thing," 50 explained in an interview. "Not necessarily Gucci, but to tattoo your face says that there's not a possibility that you can actually walk into a legitimate establishment without makeup covering your face every day. That does not work. It creates a separation. It says, 'I'm an artist.' That's it. That's the statement you make when you go and tattoo your face...But know that the public will not have interest in you as an artist for life. You have to be phenomenal. Talk to the best that do it and they will tell you that it will take more than you being an artist. It takes marketing, maneuvering to generate for that long. When you got 40 year-old rappers in the game, those guys have maneuvered and survived." (VIBE)
