Rose debuted her face tattoo of the words “Bash” and “Slash” this week on Instagram. The tattoo was dedicated to her sons, Sebastian Taylor and Slash Electric Alexander.
According to PopCrush, in an interview with Keyshia Cole Wednesday, Rose said Bryant’s death made her realize just how temporary life is. Bryant, along with his daughter Gianna Bryant and seven others, died in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26.
“I don’t want this to sound corny or anything but kinda after Kobe died, it made me reflect on my life,” Rose said in the interview. “I don’t want people to be like, ‘Oh Kobe died and you went and got a tattoo,’ but it was kinda like that.”
Rose added that her father’s experience with cancer also served as inspiration for the new ink.
“I thought about my dad and my dad had cancer when he was 40, and he went through remission and he’s good now but he almost died,” Rose told Cole. “And I’m 36. I’ve been wanting this tattoo for a long time. Life is so short, just do it. Just live your best life with no regrets. That’s just how I felt, and I’m happy I did it.”
Shortly after becoming the trending topic of the day on Wednesday, Rose posted to her Instagram to defend herself against critics of her tattoo.
“For the people that are telling me I’m too pretty for a face tat are the same people that would tell me that I’m ‘too pretty’ even if they thought I was ugly and lie to me lol. Or they would just tell me I’m ugly,” she wrote. “So either way the moral of the story is do whatever the fuck you want in life.”
