Kelsy Karter Admits Her Harry Styles Face Tattoo Was Fake

Remember this girl? The 24-year-old singer who seemingly got a tattoo of Harry Styles smack dab in the middle of her cheek? Emphasis on “seemingly”.

That’s because, on a not-so-surprising twist of events, it turns out that the singer, whose name is Kelsy Karter, just revealed that the tattoo was actually fake, and done as a PR stunt.

Well, say what you wish, it worked!

When the New Zealand singer first “revealed” the tattoo, she made viral news. She claimed that the tattoo was a birthday gift for the former One Direction star, tweeting ahead of the reveal that she has something special planned for Harry’s birthday.

Then, a few days prior to his birthday (which was yesterday, February 1st), she shared the pictures above to her Instagram, captioning it, “mama, look what i made me do”.

In the post, she is seen displaying her new ink (which is, quite frankly, not the best) and to make it appear even more believable, she got the help of make-up artist and celebrity tattoo artist, Romeo Lacoste, who is known for inking celebrities like Justin Bieber, Kendrick Lamar, and Swae Lee.

Her inspiration seems to have been Harry’s 2017 Rolling Stone magazine cover shoot.

Bt now, on a YouTube video shared to her account, titled “How I rocked the entire world for $300”, she has admitted that is was all a publicity stunt for her new single “Harry”, which, yes, is about Harry Styles. In the video, she explains she wrote the song after a dark time in her life, following the end of her relationship. Since she did not want to write another song about heartbreak, she just decided to write one about Harry Styles.

So, I guess she did get him a birthday gift after all…

Here are some of the lyrics to the song:

Harry, I’m gonna make you love me. You gonna make me breakfast. It’s a secret just between us.

We can keep it low-key. I ain’t being funny. You should be so lucky, to put your velvet arms around me.

You can watch the whole video here. According to her, she directed, produced and edited the entire music video for just $300, and it’s actually pretty impressive.
