Salma Hayek Got A Secret Tattoo On Her Boob

Tattoos and the taboos around them have come a long way from the days in which we were berated about having them by our mamas. These days just about any celebrity can be seen rocking a tattoo, with many of them getting the pieces of designs to their bodies to permanently memorialize a huge accomplishment in their life. Some get them for movie projects others to honor family members.

Salma Hayek’s newest tattoo is for a role and (behalf of our moms, thank god) it’s just watercolor!

For her latest role, the Mexican actress got a black raven tattoo on her chest.

One of the latest Salma Hayek tattoos really is just a watercolor piece for her role as Sonia Kincaid in the upcoming film “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard.”

In a post to her Instagram page, the actress wrote “A little peek of #soniakincaid secret tattoo! El tatuaje secreto de Sonia Kincaid!” The photo has a painting of a black raven placed on her left breast and it looks a whole heck of a lot like a real tattoo.

It’s not the first time Hayek hasn’t gotten fake ink for her role in a Kincaid film. “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” is a sequel to the action thriller comedy starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson called “The Hitman’s Bodyguard.” In the original film, Hayek has a tattoo of a rosary her wrist and an assortment of other pieces along her arms.

While this piece of ink might be fake for Hayek, plenty of other of our fave Latinos have gotten the real needle deed done.

Kehlani has several tattoos en español and this one across her temple says ‘Espíritu Libre’ in a cursive font. We think it’s a good description of the singer’s personality.

The 78th annual Golden Globes Awards aired last night, and because of the pandemic, the ceremony was like nothing we’ve ever seen before. The awards show was a “hybrid ceremony”, with some attendees joining the festivities in person and some joining virtually from their homes.

Because of that, the fashion situation was varied. While many people went full Hollywood glam, others went work-from-home casual (we’re looking at you Jason Sudeikis).

Yes, there was an actual physical red carpet in both New York City and Los Angeles (the awards were being broadcast from two cities), but many celebs opted to bring the red carpet into their homes.

Here is a round-up of our favorite fashion moments from the 2021 Golden Globes.

Anya Taylor-Joy

The Argentine beauty stunned in a beautiful emerald custom Dior gown and matching cape. Apparently, the ensemble took over 300 hours to make. Taylor-Joy was one of the many stars that decided to attend the awards show from home.

Yalitza Aparicio

The beautiful and super-talented Yalitza Aparicio wore head-to-toe Mexican designers. Her bold color-block dress was made by Mexican designer Kris Goyri and her jewelry was designed by Daniela Villegas.

Eiza Gonzalez

Mexican-born actress Eiza Gonzalez wore a figure-flattering Versace dress to her virtual awards ceremony. She paired the look with slicked-back hair and a bold pink lip.

Laverne Cox

Laverne Cox didn’t let a home-based ceremony cramp her style. The “Orange is the New Black” star wore a plunging ruby-red embroidered Thai Nguyen gown with caped sleeves.

Dan Levy

We can’t forget about the men! 2020’s breakout star wore a mustard yellow Valentino Men’s Haute Couture suit. He was one of the many stars that opted to attend the ceremony virtually.
