John Legend is the proud owner of a new tattoo, courtesy of his 5-year-old daughter, Luna. On Sunday (Dec. 12), The Voice coach shared video of himself getting inked to his Instagram stories, and revealed that the tattoo — a small bouquet of flowers — is “based on a sketch” by his little girl.
“It’s happening,” the “All of Me” singer said in a clip as tattoo artist Winter Stone placed the ink on his right arm. “Finally keeping my promise,” he added, referring to the promise he made — and almost backed out of — to wife Chrissy Teigen of getting Luna’s drawing tattooed. Teigen explained the promise in detail during her Dec. 7 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“Luna was drawing on us one night, and she was like, ‘I love this. This is the best butterfly I’ve ever drawn,’ and I was like, ‘I agree,’” she told the host. “And then she drew a beautiful floral bouquet on John’s arm, and he was like, ‘I’ll tattoo mine if you tattoo yours,’ and I was like, ‘Well, I don’t wanna say it, but yours looks a lot better than mine.’ But we support the arts in our household, so …”
She continued, “He was like, ‘I’ll take a picture of it and then I’ll go get it done. Then I went and got mine done, and he never went and got his done!”
Though Legend fulfilled his promise at a later time, he’s been busy juggling being a coach on season 21 of The Voice and is preparing for his Las Vegas residency Love in Las Vegas, which it slated to take place in 2022.
