In August 2022, tattoo artist Robinson De Los Santos shared a video of himself inking something along the Grammy winner's jawline, though the reveal photo he posted didn't make it immediately clear what the tattoo depicted.

A "mom" tattoo in a heart? So passé. Drake showed mom Sandra "Sandi" Gayle Graham she was forever his girl by inking her initials right under his eye.

The three miniature dots below Anwar Hadid's eye are just a few of the unique tattoos that cover his chest, arms, hands and neck. The 20-year-old model brother of Gigi and Bella Hadid also has a cross chain necklace inked around his wrist, the number 55 on his chest and the phrase "the world gold" on his neck. "I have so many weird tattoos that at one point meant something to me, but no longer do," he told Vanity Fair last year. "I find it so beautiful that at one point I could have cared about something so much to have gotten it tattooed on my body. I have to respect who I was at that moment."

Celebrity tattoo artist JonBoy delicately inked "grace" in a script font above Bieber's right eyebrow. The singer showed a glimpse of the tattoo back in July 2019 when he was spotted by paparazzi in Brooklyn, but the tattoo artist's Instagram post was the first time the ink was shown up-close to the public.

For proof that face tats can be dainty and adorable, look no further than the Manic singer. In 2018, Halsey added a queen of diamonds card symbol in front of her left ear, courtesy of tattoo artist NAL. She posted a photo of the ink on Instagram and called it her "first (and hopefully only lol) face tattoo." However, it seems she's since either removed the ink or decided to cover it with makeup.

Valena also shared photos of his work, captioning one photo "sorry mom," perhaps referencing Gerber's famous mother, runway legend Cindy Crawford.

You can't talk about face tattoos without talking about Tyson. In his 2008 documentary, Tyson, the boxer said he got the tribal design on his face because he thought it was "cool," according to Lad Bible. "I just thought it was hot," he said.
