Emily Ratajkowski hasn't been shy about her life as a new mom. Beyond a Vogue cover shoot and the countless photos she shares on Instagram, she recently embraced motherhood with a new piece of art - on her body that is.

On June 9, the model, author, entrepreneur, and artist posted an Instagram showing off a new, tiny tattoo on her inner arm in honor of her son. In addition to Ratajkowski's ink, the photo showcased two other tattoos that spelled out "Sly" in different fonts. Sly is a nickname for Sylvester Apollo Bear, her son with Sebastian Bear-McClard, who just turned one year old on March 8. The carousel post, captioned "sly forever," also featured a candid photo of Ratajkowski and her baby boy. Based on an Instagram post from her tattoo artist, Jonboy, the other tattoos belong to Ratajkowski's friends Sarah Hoover and Barbara Knapp.

An acclaimed artist, Jonboy is known for his fine-lined and small tattoos, long waitlist, and celebrity clientele. His work can be found on Justin and Hailey Bieber, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Travis Scott, and many more. Keep scrolling for a closer look at Ratajkowski's sentimental ink.
