In one of two posts on Instagram. the 35-year-old artist first shows off her new "alien scars" across her chest, which appears to actually be a white ink tattoo that gives the visual appearance of scarification sans the actual process of cutting into the skin to do so.

According to the post's caption, the white ink tattoo was done by ZHENJA 777R, an artist who is currently in Berlin, according to the bio on their IG account.

Shortly after posting her "alien scars," Grimes shared another snap of a different piece of body art.

In addition to her white ink "alien scars," Grimes also got some line work done on her leg in red ink while asking fans to check out her new music.

"Obligatory 'plz listen to new music' post," she says in the second post, before shouting out the artist behind her red linework tattoo:

"Ps so stoked w this tattoo by @caidasindesamparo," Grimes writes, adding, "I am marveling at this masterpiece on my leg."

Though some social media users were confused by Grimes' new tattoos, one fan commented: "What’s with all the normies questioning your looks? Do they even know who you are?"

Tattoos are all about self-expression, and it seems Grimes knows this all too well!
