Kailyn Lowry shows off her tattooKailyn Lowry may be known as one of the stars of Teen Mom 2 on MTV. But the mom from Pennsylvania has a growing number of fans for something that has nothing to do with motherhood. Kailyn is all about the body art these days. With tattoos popping up everywhere from her wrist to her thigh, this girl is all about ink.
But it seems like every time we turn around, Kailyn has another tattoo. Is she going to ever stop? The Stir had to ask, and Kailyn was more than happy to answer!
"I'm working on covering my whole body, so we'll see," Kailyn told us.
Got that? Her whole body. As in all that skin that's still uncovered! She certainly wouldn't be the first one to be covered in tats, but it's a controversial move. Although an estimated 45 million Americans have at least one tat, some 60 percent of employers in one survey said they wouldn't hire someone with visible ink.
So what about her critics?
"To me it's just art. I look at it as art," Lowry said. "I mean, people are going to judge, but I'm open-minded to it.
"I've had some kind of mixed reviews for my back, but it's not finished, so it's not fair! You can't judge an unfinished piece! The quote on my upper back says 'To the world you are one person but to one person you are the world,' with Isaac's initials. We kind of put a pretty scene of the world around it. That's what's going on with my back. It should be finished hopefully by the time I get married."
Kailyn also has a mermaid on her arm (which she showed off to us in our photo), a large dreamcatcher on her leg that she says is symbolic of her Native American heritage, and an infinity sign that matches fiance Javi Marroquin's. From there, who knows?
Where do you draw the line on tattoos? Would you cover your body?
