You know you’re ready for space tourism and whatever dangers might lie ahead when your back is already scarred by aliens.
Musician Grimes, Elon Musk’s partner and the mother of his child, is also his ride-or-die in his efforts to send man into space and eventually colonize Mars. In reality, Grimes was fascinated by aliens long before Musk came into the picture, but it must be nice for her to know that there’s a shot of turning those dreams into reality during her lifetime, now that she’s dating the SpaceX CEO.

Shortly before declaring she was “ready to die with the red dirt of Mars beneath my feet,” while striking a pose at the SpaceX base in Texas, with SN11 in the background, Grimes got herself a new full back tattoo. The piece is relevant because it ties in with her and Musk’s conviction that space tourism will become a reality within the next decade. Tops.

Available below is a shot of the tattoo, which looks like apparently meaningless swirls. It was done entirely in white ink, meaning it will resemble scarring once it heals. Grimes herself calls it “beautiful alien scars,” though the internet is more of the opinion that it resembles either jellyfish scarring or the scribbles of a toddler armed with a felt-tip pen and imagination galore.

Artist Nusi Quero took part in the design process for the piece, and he explains that it was partly computer-generated, partly hand-drawn. It was also done in one go, and it was “such a beautiful experience and talisman [for Grimes’] world. Electric energy is abuzz.

Neither the tattoo artist nor Grimes says anything about the possible scenario that would result in the scars. But you know it’s real love when your girl prepares for space colonization by getting the worst out of the way.
