Nearly three months after releasing her candid memoir, The Weight of BeautifulThe Real Housewives of New Jersey alum hit the Big Apple to fulfill a promise to herself. Jackie shared the moment in a December 12 Instagram post that showed her lying stomach-down on a tattoo bed while getting some ink. The mother of four confirmed she had received a new piece by Keith Scott “Bang Bang” McCurdy, a celebrity tattoo artist who has done work for A-list stars, like Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Adele, LeBron James, and many more.

Jackie Goldschneider says her new tattoo was a "promise" to herself

“Got inked by the GOAT today!!” she captioned the carousel. “I promised myself that if I ever wrote a book, I’d find my way to Bang Bang and have him tattoo the title on my back. My favorite tattoo yet and an experience I’ll never forget! Bang – you are the coolest!”

The second slide was a close-up shot of Jackie’s completed tattoo: a right shoulder piece of her book title written in capital letters. The text was placed near another tiny tattoo she revealed back in 2021. Since then, Jackie has made several body art additions, including two small tats on her left shoulder blade.

Bravolebrities react to Jackie Goldschneider's new ink

Jackie’s post received both congratulatory and complimentary comments from several Bravolebrities, such as The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Tamra JudgeThe Real Housewives of Potomac daughter Rayvin HugerRHONJ boyfriend Paulie Connell; and RHONJ friend Jennifer Fessler, who is also Jackie’s podcast co-host.

RHONJ OG Teresa Giudice seemingly cosigned the tattoo by leaving a series of flame emojis. Jackie responded to the comment with a pink heart emoji.

Jackie Goldschneider and Teresa Giudice's Friendship

Although the exchange was relatively short, it reminded fans that the two are still on good terms. Teresa and Jackie have spent the past year repairing their friendship after their messy falling-out in RHONJ Season 11. Teresa even attended Jackie’s book signing back in September along with her oldest daughter, Gia Giudice.

Jackie addressed her and Teresa’s renewed friendship in a recent interview with The Messenger, where she dismissed claims that the reunion was for publicity.

“There’s this narrative going around by some people that I did it for relevancy,” Jackie told the outlet while attending the 2023 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball. “I can breathe and be relevant enough. I can show up and just be relevant enough. So I didn’t need to do that… I can’t wait for people to see organically how a new friendship came about. I think it’s great. That’s what the shows should be like — you were fighting and then you found your way back to each other. Who wants to stay on a ‘team’?”
