Jhené Aiko Gets Boyfriend Big Sean’s Face Tattooed on Her Arm a Week After Finalizing Divorce
Jhene Aiko now wears her heart on her sleeve… permanently. On Monday, Los Angeles-based celebrity tattoo artist Miryam “The Witchdoctor” Lumpini shared a gallery of photos of Aiko’s new ink to Instagram, writing, “Art is love.” Aiko’s bold new tat — which shows Sean in a bowtie and tuxedo jacket — comes a week after she and ex-husband Dot da Genius finalized their divorce, E! News reports. The pair, who tied the knot in July 2004, separated in June 2015 and filed for divorced back in August 2016 citing “irreconcilable differences.”
A week after the singer finalized her divorce from Dot Da Genius, Jhene paid a visit to her local tattoo artist in hopes of paying homage to her new boyfriend of about a year, rapper Big Sean. The “Bed Peace” songstress received a large, colored portrait of Big Sean wearing a tuxedo on the back of her arm above the elbow.
Big Sean and Aiko have been dating for about a year, making it Instagram official in October 2016 with an adorable Instagram selfie.
Celebrity tattoo artist Miryam “The Witchdoctor” Lumpini completed the ink for Aiko, captioning a snapshot, “Art is ❤️ thanks Jheńe for allowing me to share this moment.” And as is the case when any star makes the (often inevitably regrettable) decision to tattoo their S.O.’s name or likeness, their fans have opinions. Lots of opinions. The two are collaborators in business too, performing as a duo under the moniker Twenty88. Their self-titled debut album dropped on April 1, 2016 featuring guest appearances from the R&B group K-Ci & JoJ and recording artist/producer Detail. The album peaked at number five on the Billboard 200.
He’s previously been in high-profile relationships with Naya Rivera and Ariana Grande. Aiko, meanwhile, has a daughter from a previous relationship named Namiko, who turns 9 in November.
