Eva Marcille is no stranger to tattoos. The Real Housewives of Atlanta pal flashed a few of them in her pregnancy photo shoot — but we weren't quite able to keep up with how many she had. (Plus, who knows how many more were hiding under her Free People threads?) So when Eva stopped by Bravo HQ, The Lookbook had to ask her about her passion for ink.
"I love ink, I love ink," the model said. "It’s such an expression of who you are, like if I couldn’t speak and I couldn’t do anything, you could look at me and kind of get an idea of who I am... I don’t know, it’s amazing."
Eva went on to share just how meaningful her tattoos are. "I have one of my friend, she passed away, but we had these tattoos, it’s me and her. She’s gone but I have this, so ink means a lot," she said. Eva also has a tattoo of her daughter Marley Rae's name, along with her birth date, birth weight, and birth length.
And that's not all! "I have a 38 revolver on my hip right now with a holster," she told us. "I want to get my holster to go all the way around — but then I also found this really cool, it’s like the evolution of a sunflower. And so it’s like a little flower and you see it evolve into this beautiful woman… So I think I’m going to get the sunflower into the woman."
And will that be it? The only thing holding Eva back is space! "We don’t have that many spaces," she said. "I already have 23 tattoos." But when and if she wants to get another tattoo, "we’ll figure something out," she said. Cheers to 24!
