Paris Jackson and her godfather, former Home Alone actor Macaulay Culkin, seem to have a lot of fun together. She gives him pedicures; they hang out over the holidays; they draw each other masterpieces; and, apparently, they even hit the tattoo parlor together.
Jackson, 19, and Culkin, 36, were spotted at West Hollywood’s Tattoo Mania parlor Saturday; they emerged, freshly inked, Jackson adding to her already impressive spread of tattoos with a tiny spoon on her left forearm. (Just a month ago, Jackson also got a foot tattoo, which read “Applehead” in swirling cursive, a tribute to her father.) Culkin matched her spoon with the same illustration on his right, the mirror image. Jackson later posted an image of herself posing with Culkin, showing off their new ink, to her Instagram stories over the weekend.
Entertainment Weekly wrote, reporting on the new tattoos, that spoons are frequently representative of a chronic struggle (likely referring to the Spoon Theory of chronic illness)—and there’s no denying both Jackson and Culkin have confronted. (They also share a history childhoods spent in the limelight.) Then again, spoons can mean a whole lot of things. You use them to eat your cereal; a silver spoon is also a metaphor for privilege.
Culkin, Jackson’s godfather, became friends with her late father when he starred in the video for Michael Jackson’s “Black or White”; in the past year, he’s been spotted numerous times with his goddaughter, a rising model and, apparently, also a burgeoning nail artist. (Elsewhere, he popped up in Adam Green’s Aladdin with Natasha Lyonne and Father John Misty’s “Total Entertainment Forever” video, adding to his eclectic resume that includes his gig as the frontman for the pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band The Pizza Underground.)
Culkin doesn’t have Instagram—but he can leave it to Jackson to document their travails, and their shared ink.
A Guide to All Your Favorite Models’s Tattoos, from Paris Jackson’s New Ink to Kate Moss’s £1 Million Tramp Stamp
Kate Moss, who bared her anchor tattoo on W‘s March 2012 cover, also has a “tramp stamp” in the form of two birds on her lower back, inked by none other than Lucian Freud.
Cara Delevingne, a Leo, got her very first tattoo in 2013—the first of many to come, including an elephant on her forearm.
And then there was the time Delevingne let her Suicide Squad costar Margot Robbie tattoo a smiley face onto the bottom of her big toe.
Bella Hadid got two teensy matching wing tattoos on her ankles—quite apt for someone who’d just stolen the show on the Victoria’s Secret runway.
Kendall Jenner got a lip tattoo reading “MEOW” late last year, courtesy of “Bang Bang.”
A few months before she got her own tat, Jenner designed this one for her pal Hailey Baldwin, which was also inked by Bang Bang.
Like the Delevingne sisters, Ireland and Hailey Baldwin also have teamed up on tats to remind you of their legacy.
Hot felon-turned-model Jeremy Meeks is covered in tattoos, including some that stretch up to his neck.
Jourdan Dunn, who has a bevy of tattoos, including her son Riley’s name on her hand, got matching D’s with Cara Delevingne back in 2014.
A master of subtle tattoos—including her matching butterfly with Travis Scott—Kylie Jenner has also adorned her forearm with a teensy red dot.
Last year, Kylie Jenner got matching red squiggly lines with her BFF Jordyn Woods, tucked away inside both of their pinky fingers.
You may not have heard of “Zombie Boy” Rick Genest, who inspired Lady Gaga and walked for brands like Thierry Mugler in six years or so, but he’s definitely still covered in tats!
In case you forgot she was a model named Chanel Iman, Chanel Iman has her name and a clothes hanger emblazoned across the back of her neck.
Fellow Balenciaga model and Insta star Ilana Kozlov also has some sleeves in the making, as well as “NO GODS, NO MASTERS,” across her chest.
Perhaps the most tatted name in the game, Cat McNeil has a back covered in ink—not too surprising for a model who cut off all her hair for Alexander Wang.
Julia Nobis may not have Instagram, but the longtime Raf Simons muse’s tats have still made their way around the internet, like the Dr. Seuss phrase “Oh, the places you’ll go!” across her forearm.
Joan Smalls got her “first and last tattoo” in 2015, dedicated to her mother.
