Chrissy Teigen has some new ink, but there are now debates over its possible resemblance to tattoos during the holocaust.
Chrissy Teigen is always a vibe whether it’s on Twitter or Instagram, so it only makes sense that when she posted a picture of her new tattoo, it would stir up a conversation.
Teigen’s tattoo is a very small line of numbers on her inner forearm which represent the birthdates of her husband, John Legend (12/28/78), daughter, Luna (4/14/16), and son, Miles (5/16/18) in a barcode-style font.
While the tattoo is actually pretty unique and simple, her fans were divided in regards to the overall design. Now while its no one’s business but her own, fans still took their concerns to social media.
Some fans felt that her tattoo was similar to those that the Nazi’s gave to the Jews during the Holocaust.
“Chrissy, I love you,” one commenter said. “I just wish people were more aware of the connection to the Holocaust when they elect to get forearm tattoos of numbers.”
“Is anyone else a little bothered by the fact that she got a series of numbers on her forearm?” asked the commenter. “Is the Holocaust really that far removed from our reality? Anyone??”
