We were minding our own business, scrolling through Instagram, when we almost scrolled right past the biggest news to hit Bella Hadid’s feed since she became an auntie. The supermodel has apparently gotten a new tattoo. And not just any tattoo. In a nod to her Palestinian roots, Hadid has inked “أحبك”, or “Ahebak,” the Arabic word for “I love you” in dainty script on her upper left arm.
She hasn’t made a big deal about it by announcing it publicly, but she was definitely showing it off in her cute, plaid, sleeveless top under a 90s-inspired sleeveless black leather vest with a heart cutout in the back. Now, not only have we been researching plaid and sleeveless leather vests, but we also added Arabic tattoos to our Google queries.
Hadid already has two other tattoos — a rosebud just above her left elbow, and a small pair of angel wings on her right ankle. She’s been discreet about her tattoos and their meanings, leaving fans guessing as to why she chooses the symbols that she does. But we, for one, love her latest addition.
