It looks like Ariana Grande might be in the process of removing some of her tattoos—either that or she's just in the mood to cover them up! Fans noticed that multiple of Ari's arm tattoos were missing in her gorgeous wedding photos as well as in recent pics from her iHeartRadio Music Awards performance—including two previously prominent butterflies that were there as recently as March, according to Page Six. In case you've forgotten what they look like, here's one poking out of her elbow-length glove at the Grammy Awards back in 2020:
Meanwhile, here's a look at her now tattoo-less arm at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Thursday:
While there was speculation that Ari covered her tattoos specifically for her wedding, the fact that she showed up to perform without them has fans thinking the change might be permanent:
FYI, the iHeartRadio Music Awards also happened to be the first night Ariana debuted her wedding band in public, which Dalton Gomez happened to design himself with the help of Solow & Co.
"They worked with Dalton on this," a spokesperson for Solow & Co told E! News. "It's a beautiful, tasteful platinum and diamond pave band. Dalton was very happy with it."
The band complements Ari's diamond and pearl engagement ring, which Dalton also helped design. "Dalton was involved in every step of the selection process through FaceTime and Zoom since he was on the west coast and I was here in my office in New York," designer Jack Solow said. "He was very, very specific about what he wanted. He had very strong feelings about how he wanted this to look, a contemporary kind of way. It was his idea to do the diamond on an angle and he said to me we had to incorporate a pearl into the finished piece."
