Cardi B’s new tattoo

Cardi B used to have the name “Samuel,” written in cursive with red ink, on the back of her neck. But she has since covered it up with a butterfly.

Some parts of the old tattoo are still visible, but, nonetheless, many fans were amazed by the results.

“That’s dope af! Your tats look like MONEY,” read one tweet.

“The color is so f*ckin [fire],” said another. “I’m scared of tatts but all of your tatts make me wanna get one. They’re just so damn detailed & perfect”

What did Cardi B’s ‘Samuel’ tattoo mean?

Cardi B has never revealed the meaning of the tattoo, but people in the comment section claimed that it’s the name of someone she dated before achieving fame.

Many noted that she has a history of getting tattoos in honor of her loved ones, pointing to the “Hennessy” artwork she got for her baby sister Hennessy Carolina and the “Tommy G” tattoo for her old boyfriend.

They also reminded fans that Cardi B once admitted to Ellen DeGeneres: “I have like three different men tatted on me, you know what I’m saying? They gotta go!” But the “Money Bag” rapper did not appear to address the speculation.

She met Offset of the rap trio Migos later in 2016 and began dating him just before she dropped her breakout hit, “Bodak Yellow,” in June 2017. She and the “Clout” rapper went on to get married that September and are now parents to a daughter, Kulture Kiari Cephus, who was born in July 2018.

Days after Kulture’s arrival, Cardi B revealed that she’d gotten a tattoo of Offset’s name on the back of her thigh. It came about a year after he got a tattoo of Buttercup from The Powerpuff Girls in honor of his “Lick” collaborator.
