There are a few trademarks that belong to
Cardi B and Cardi B alone: her signature "owww" and "okurrrr," the glittery nails we could spot from a mile away, and, of course, her unique tattoo collection. Unlike the dainty, fine-line tattoos that have become popular among Hollywood A-listers, Cardi's ink is the opposite: bold, colorful, and large — just like her personality. In total, the rapper has about eight pieces of ink (that is, those are the ones we can see). Some of her most noticeable pieces are often spotted when she performs onstage in bodysuits and leotards, but others are harder to hunt down. In honor of the 27-year-old's birthday, we rounded up all of her badass ink ahead. Peacock Cardi's most prominent tattoo is a large multi-colored peacock print that hugs her thigh, hip, and back.

Often hidden underneath her
is the name "Samuel." Since it sits on the back of Cardi's neck, we only get a glimpse of the red-ink tattoo when she's rocking an updo.

More "Hennessy" On the other arm, Cardi has Hennessy, her sister's name, printed in large black cursive and decorated with florals. Photo: ANGELA WEISS/AFP/Getty Images. More I Love You + Red Star Tucked behind her ear is the smallest of Cardi B's ink, a fine-line drawing of "I love you" in sign language, which is complemented with a red star.

Cardi tatted the Migos rapper's name in script on the back of her knee and shared a glimpse of it on Instagram Stories. Photo: Gary Miller/Getty Images. More Cheetah Right above her hip bone is a large drawing of a cheetah, which Cardi had on display during the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. Photo: Amy Sussman/FilmMagic. More "Belkis" Cardi B has the words Belkis stamped on the inside of her wrist. The ink is an abbreviated version of her real name, which is Belcalis. Photo: Nicholas Hunt/Getty Images. More "Tommy G" On her opposite wrist, you may have missed the words Tommy G, which is the name of the rapper's former boyfriend. Photo: John Shearer/Getty Images. More Like what you see?
