Ariana Grande’s arm tattoos appear to have suddenly disappeared – but has she actually had them removed?
The ‘God Is A Woman’ hitmaker famously had an Eevee the Pokémon design on the inside of her arm and a large butterfly below her right shoulder, as well as designs on her hands.
In her wedding pictures – which are so stunning btw – Ari’s arms were noticeably bare, but it’s understandable if she didn’t want the eye-catching designs distracting from her elegant Vera Wang dress.
But a few days later when the newly-married pop star performed 'Save Your Tears' with The Weeknd at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, her arm tattoos were still missing.
Only her hand tattoos, the quote on the back of hour shoulder, and a drawing of Chihiro from Spirited Away, remained visible.
And on 9 June when she shared outtakes from shooting The Voice – guess what? Still missing!
Has Ariana removed some of her tattoos?
Well, the last glimpse fans got of Ari’s now-awol tattoos were on 6 May, when she posted a selfie and the top of one tattoo was just in shot.
If the star had had any tattoos removed since then, it would have been a long process until her wedding day which was 15 May.
Another theory swirling around the Twittersphere is that Ari may have indeed been cast as Megara in the upcoming Hercules live-action remake, which could explain why she’s had her body ink covered.
They even pointed out that Ari’s purple outfit, arm movements and the style of her hair were all a nod to the character.
The biggest clue of all however, is that the company working in the production of the movie liked all of Ari’s wedding posts.
According to multiple reliable sources, Ariana Grande has been casted as Megara for the live action movie of Hercules. The sources revealed that this is the reason why the singer is spotted covering all her arm tattoos. They started and filmed a look test for the role recently. pic.twitter.com/ysvnBwC9bo— jay 👽 (@FUCKPOSITIONS) May 28, 2021
Fans began petitioning for Ariana to play Megara after her rendition of ‘I Won’t Say I’m In Love’ from the film during Disney’s Family Singalong went viral.
Have their prayers been answered? We’re hoping so!
