She went all out!
Luckily for Maci, it looks like the days of cheating rumors, drug scandals, and high-intensity fighting are finally behind her. Although some of the other cast members are still getting to a stable point in their lives, Maci can finally settle down and focus on herself. Maci Bookout has mostly managed to stay out of the spotlight when it comes to drama these days. She really has none of her own beefs, controversies, of other feuds and most of her time in the headlines is thanks to controversies surrounding her ex, Adam Lind, and his new wife. With everything she’s been through over the years, she should be able to treat herself as much as she wants!
Well, it looks like she’s done just that. Maci has debuted her most recent tattoo update, and this time she’s gone all in with a full sleeve tattoo!
Maci has been getting inked for a long time. In fact, she was one of the first moms to get multiple tattoos. Although she’s not the only Teen Mom to get a full sleeve, she is the most recent! She’s joined Kailyn in the ranks of inked up Teen Moms by covering her entire arm with art!
Maci hooked up with a Texas tattoo artist, Mike Diaz of Sunken City Ink, for her recent update. Mike took to Instagram to show off his handiwork. “It’s funny to hear that even at the airport and hotel everybody was stunned to see her and asked what in the world she was doing here and glad to be the reason for it,” he told Starcasm.
For anyone who’s never gotten a tattoo, the first question is you’ll have is probably how much it hurt to get her whole arm inked! Well, according to Mike, Maci was a trooper. He wrote in the caption of his Instagram post, “Def had a lot of fun with this girl, given that fact that she was low on sleep and went a whole 9 hours …she just got better with time.”
Even Maci said that she had a good time, which is impressive considering she was under a needle for an entire day. “Haha rare form Maci for sure!!” she wrote in the captions of Mike’s post. “It was a blast and im so in love with my sleeve.”
That’s not all that Maci had to share. In fact, it looks like she and Mike have something else in the works. Mike wrote, “Me and Maci are also in the process of putting something together for her fans here coming Feb 2-4 at the Lubbock Tattoo Expo when she comes back! So be looking out for a contest soon.”
Maci shot back, “Can’t wait for the expo! Thanks @mikediaztattoos ur a killer artist!”
The tattoo itself has numerous elements, including a compass, a hot air balloon, and a book with open pages, which may be a continuation of the words and paper tattoos she has on her back. At the bottom of the sleeve is written, “Things that matter” (the name of Maci’s apparel company).
Fans were divided about Maci’s tattoo, and they sounded off about it on Reddit. User TartofDarkness wrote, “I think it looks great. Certainly much better than her back!” Others weren’t so impressed. “I loooove sleeve tattoos, but this one… The tattoos look well done, but they don’t go well together (on a sleeve). It just seems like a bunch of random stickers on her arm with some shading in between,” wrote user miss-olliee.
Others were even less kind. User alainamazingbetch wrote, “Maci is an attractive woman, it’s a shame she got such horrible art done on her skin- these poorly done pieces distract from her natural beauty.” User peekabewbew summed up their feelings perfectly when they wrote, “I’ll just go ahead and take my grandmothers advice..’if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.’”
