A Handy Guide To Kehlani's Coolest Tattoos

Illustration by Louisa Cannell.
When we first met Kehlani in 2011 as a contestant on America's Got Talent, the then-16-year-old had yet to even get her first tattoo. Now, she's covered in ink from head to toe, adding to her collection so often fans can barely keep up — until now.
Luckily, the star is an open book when it comes to a lot of her visible ink. For example, we know her first (her knuckles, all stick and poke done by her sister) and her most sentimental ("La Dreamer," as a tribute to a friend she met in a group home as a teen).

That's why we compiled some of her most colorful pieces, so you can get a closer look at the star's raddest ink. Ahead, a guide to Kehlani's tattoo collection...
