Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday celebrations included fancy gifts from family, friends, and boyfriend Tyga, but it looks like the youngest Jenner decided to give herself a special birthday present. At the August 16 Beachclub party in Montreal party, Kylie changed from a long-sleeved tribal print dress into a more revealing white crop top and mini skirt. With all that “extra skin showing,” fans got a first look at “a red heart-shaped mark” on her left arm that looks like it’s the newest Jenner sister tattoo.

The tiny heart shape is on the back of Kylie’s upper arm, and not easily spotted. There’s no confirmation yet on whether the tattoo is permanent, but speculation is that it may have been a gift from Tyga. It could also just be a party tattoo that she got while celebrating her Beachclub birthday; something to cross “off her ‘I’m officially an adult’ bucket list.”

According to Hollywood Life, for Kylie the tattoo’s meaning is all about her guy Tyga, and it’s the real thing. An insider told the publication, “Kylie got her new heart tattoo to symbolize all the love in her life — and obviously Tyga is a big part of that. He has her heart completely, so of course he was on her mind when she chose the design.” The source also suggested that Kylie might already be thinking of a future without Tyga.
“Fortunately, she’s smarter than to get his name permanently inked on her.”
Older Jenner sister Kendall recently got some matching ink along with BFF and fellow model Hailey Baldwin. Kendall went for a tiny heart design similar to Kylie’s tattoo, but it’s a broken heart on her finger instead of on her arm. The broken heart is Kendall’s second tattoo. Earlier she visited the same tattoo artist (NYC based JonBoy) to add a white dot to the inside of one finger.

The Jenner sisters don’t have the approval of big sister Kim for their tattoos. In Kendall’s (pre-ink) cover shoot interview with Allure magazine, the model explained why she didn’t have any tattoos. She said she had a “weird thing with forever,” and shared Kim’s advice with readers.
“And my sister Kim always said, ‘Don’t put a bumper sticker on a Bentley.'”
The allure of ink was greater than the advice of Kim, and Kendall led the way for Kylie to start exploring skin art.
What do you think of Kylie’s heart tattoo? Did she do it for Tyga?
