Billie Eilish recently revealed her thigh tattoo in a new photo shoot with British Vogue.
Fans believe the tattoo to be a design of a slithering dragon.
The singer previously said she'd never show her ink to the world.
Billie Eilish has revealed her thigh tattoo for the first time.
In a photo shoot with British Vogue, which she described as being outside of her realm, the 19-year-old singer donned a Burberry corset, stockings, and a trench coat, giving a glimpse of a massive tattoo running from her hip to thigh.
The tattoo's origins and symbolism are unclear, but some fans on social media say it is a design of a slithering dragon, according to PopSugar.
She has kept the tattoo private for at least four months. In her annual interview with Vanity Fair in November 2020, she confirmed she had gotten her first tattoo in the year since her previous interview.
"But you won't ever see it," she said at the time.
But she explained to British Vogue why her decision to show the tattoo wasn't hypocritical.
"Suddenly you're a hypocrite if you want to show your skin," she told British Vogue, adding, "Showing your body and showing your skin - or not - should not take any respect away from you."
Eilish has been vocal about her experience with body-shaming. In March 2020, she stripped down to a bra in an interlude at her Miami concert to call out people who have criticized her body or used her decision to wear baggy clothes as a means to body-shame other women.
"Some people hate what I wear. Some people praise it. Some people use it to shame others. Some people use it to shame me," she said in the voice-over.
"If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I'm a slut," Eilish said, adding, "Though you've never seen my body, you still judge it, and judge me for it. Why?"
The "Bad Guy" hitmaker has also said in the past that she prefers wearing baggy ensembles so she won't be sexually objectified.
"That's why I wear big, baggy clothes," she said in a Calvin Klein ad in 2019. "Nobody can have an opinion because they haven't seen what's underneath."
She also told Dazed in April 2020 that her decision to wear loose clothing "was 'cos I hated my body." While she told British Vogue that her body remains her "deepest insecurity," she also has gained the confidence to now do "whatever I want."
"It's all about what makes you feel good. If you want to get surgery, go get surgery. If you want to wear a dress that somebody thinks that you look too big wearing, f--- it - if you feel like you look good, you look good," she said.
The singer expanded on her feelings about the shoot in a series of posts on social media.
"i love these pictures and i loved doing this shoot. do whatever you want whenever you want. f--- everything else," she captioned one of the images.
