The tattoos of Teen Mom have always been a unique topic of discussion for fans. From Kailyn Lowry’s full sleeve tattoos to Maci’s colorful ink and Amber’s portrait of Leah, every time the girls get a new tattoo, it’s a change of their entire style.
That said, since many of the girls started getting tattoos while they were still young, they’re not all exactly works of art. Some of the cast members have opted for some pretty strange options that fans aren’t exactly in love with. But Leah’s tattoo may just take the cake for the most unique of ink anyone on the show.
Many of the cast members love to show off their tattoos at any opportunity, especially after they just had them completed. But not many people even noticed Leah’s new tattoo… because it’s on her eye!
When it comes to the most adventurous or “out there” members of the Teen Mom cast, Leah Messer probably isn’t the one to come to mind. Fans might think of Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, or Kailyn Lowry when they think of the daredevils of the group, but Leah tends to color inside of the lines. She’s set a good example of focusing on herself and her children to work through her personal struggles and come out on the other end in one new and improved person.
But even the good girls have to go a little out there sometime, and Leah is no exception. We all know that she’s had some difficulties in her past, from cheating scandals to mysterious stints in treatment, and allegations of drug abuse, her record isn’t exactly squeaky clean.
The girls don’t always update fans immediately when they make a life change — sometimes it’s a while before fans even notice — but when Leah posted this selfie, some fans noticed something slightly different about her.
She shared this snap of her smiling in a car, looking healthy and happy. She captioned it, “It was a no makeup kind of day.” That’s what set this fan off.
We all know that Leah is pretty — and has had a serious glow-up in recent years — but Twitter user @KarlAndrewBier was surprised at Leah’s appearance in this shot. They replied to Leah’s tweet by writing, “You are clearly wearing eyeliner (and using a filter) at the very least.”
As it turns out, their assessment was true… kind of. Even though Leah wasn’t technically wearing makeup, she revealed the secret to her looks: “Eyeliner is permanent and I have lash extensions in… not mascara.”
If Leah’s referring to the popular new technique of permanent eyeliner, it means that she’s gotten up close and personal with a tattoo gun: right next to her eye! This procedure puts a permanent dark brown or black line above and/or below people’s eyes so that they never have to put on makeup again.
Many fans showered Leah with praise regardless of her new tats. User kristinsmith74 wrote “No need to explain mama! Your [sic] beautiful regardless!”
“Did you get eye liner tattooed!? I love the idea, but it scares the crap outta me lol,” @mizzim88 wrote. Although some users had criticism, like user @MotivatedMeow who wrote “Regardless it’s not natural face as you implied Leah,” others were quick to defend her, like @Stephjo69, who wrote, “Ooh, just reading some tweets…..don’t let the nit pickers get to you! Truth be said I’m sure they’d need a bag over their heads!”
