The Canadian musician, Grimes, has unveiled a new tattoo that covers her entire back, which is out of this world. 

The singer has described her new tattoo as "beautiful alien scars" and shared a photo to Instagram of her new inking, a tangle of lines and swirls.

"Don't have a good pic cuz it hurts too much, and I need to sleep haha, and it'll be red for a few wks , but gna be beautiful alien scars."

She further explained that the tattoo had been completed in white ink, which is expected to look like scarring. It is the latest addition to her tattoo collection, which also features designs on her arms and hands.

Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, said in 2020 that she now goes by "c". This single-letter nickname is something Grimes now has in common with her 11-month-old, who goes by "X", for short. 

C, 32, shares X with her boyfriend, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, 49, who made headlines after announcing their child's birth and unusual name. 

Fans still struggle to pronounce the name, even after Grimes shared a full breakdown of her son's name on Twitter. Musk then later broke down how to pronounce the name on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. 

The X is pronounced "like the letter, X"; Æ is pronounced "ash", and A-12 ("my contribution") is said how it appears. Thus "X-Ash-A-12".

Musk gave credit to Grimes, who "mostly came up with the name. She's great at names."
