Jada Pinkett Smith gets a new tattoo: ‘I’m starting to build my sleeve now!’

Jada Pinkett Smith has unveiled a new tattoo and also promised her Instagram followers that there are many more to come.

On Sunday, the 49-year-old Girls Trip star shared an image in which she was seen crouching on the floor in a light green sweatsuit and extending her arm to show off her new ink.  

‘I always said I would get a sleeve at 60 but tomorrow is not promised. Soooo … I’m starting to build my sleeve now!’ Jada exclaimed in the caption.

She continued, ‘Repp’n the Divine Feminine journey within and without. ✨Jai Ma✨ #MataSita #Allat #Oshun #QuanYin.

Jada’s tattoo is an intricate rendering of Mata Sita, a Hindu goddess and the heroine of the Sanskrit epic Ramayana. She is the goddess of sacrifice, purity, love and simplicity.

The other goddesses that Pinkett-Smith hashtagged in her caption include Arabian goddess Allat, African goddess Oshun and Quan Yin, the Buddhist bodhisattva of compassion.

Pinkett-Smith’s new tattoo was inked just above the tattoo that she got in May along with her daughter Willow, and mother Adrienne ‘Gammy’ Banfield-Norris. The trio all got matching tattoos of three blossoming lotuses. 

Jada showcased the ink on her Instagram account, where she shared photos of the tattoo process followed by the finished product.

The ink was done by tattoo artist-to-the-stars Dr. Woo, and the process was all documented on their hit Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk.

As Willow got her tattoo done, she explained the significance of the flower.

‘The lotus represents spiritual enlightenment,’ Willow said. ‘And we hear this saying, “through the mud grows the lotus.”‘

‘That’s definitely my story,’ Adrienne chimed in.

‘Yes, 100%, and I think all of us from different perspectives in life have had that journey,’ Willow continued. ‘The bud to the little blossom to the bloom, also I feel like expresses the spiritual journey but also the three of us. I’m the youngest, you know my mom is the middle and Gam is the fully-bloomed lotus.’

‘And it means something different for each of us,’ Adrienne added. ‘Our stories, our journeys, are different. But it still represents us so well. I thought that was brilliant.

‘”Out of the mud comes the lotus.” You have to go through the mud, the dirt and still something beautiful is created,’ Adrienne said. ‘And that kind of describes my journey. I kind of been through some really tough times. 

‘But I’m still worthy, you know, and there’s still room for me to grow and change even now, at 67. I’m still growing and changing and trying to be better. So getting the lotus was just everything.’
