- Adrienne Bailon-Houghton has five known tattoos.
- Bailon-Houghton’s tattoo collection includes dedications to her son and husband.
- She’s talked about the meanings behind her tattoos in interviews.
Adrienne Bailon-Houghton has had a whirlwind year and the body art to prove it. On top of taking on the heavy lifting of serving us countless hair, makeup, and nail looks in late 2022, the singer welcomed a new addition to her family: a baby boy. To commemorate the moment, she got a script tattoo that simply reads, “Ever.” The ink is etched onto her right hand, permanently adding a part of her son’s name — Ever James Houghton — to her body forever.
Since revealing the new ink, there’s been increased interest in Bailon-Houghton’s tattoos. This, in part, could be residual curiosity from a 2016 conversation she had on her talk show, “The Real,” where she mentioned being in the process of removing a tattoo of Robert Kardashian’s name. She got the ink when dating him in the early ’00s. Since then, however, not much had been revealed about her collection until a 2022 episode where she shared that she got another name tattoo, this time in honor of her husband, Israel Houghton.
In total, Bailon-Houghton has five known tattoos, each having sentimental meaning to the star. Two are hidden between her fingers: the roman numeral “XI” (which is her favorite number) and three tiny dots that she got to match with her sister. The style of the designs falls in line with the rest of her tattoos: small, chic, and meaningful. If you’re a fan of tiny tattoos, you’ll be thoroughly inspired by her understated collection, which sports fine-line pieces that are easy to miss unless you’re really looking for them.
