Watch This Man React to Seeing His Wife Without Tattoos

From Esquire

Identical twin sisters Aline and Alena are both tattoo artists known as the "Petunia Twins." By their own estimation, they have been giving each other a new tattoo around once a month for the last seven years, and they are now covered in body art. In a new episode of the Transformed webseries from Truly, Aline decides to cover up her full-body tattoos with makeup in order to see what kind of response it will get from her husband, Salvatore.

"I have never seen Aline without a tattoo at all," says Salvatore. "I think she will look completely different, because the skin is such an important part of how we see people."

First, Alena helps Aline apply a base layer of makeup to mask the ink, and then a second layer which is matched to her skin tone. "I'm really nervous to get covered, because my tattoos are a part of my life," she says. "They tell a story, and because we're artists, we live our passion, we live our art."

While Salvatore and close friend Lillie were expecting a big change, neither of them is prepared for just how much of a transformation Aline has gone through in a matter of hours. "It's shockingly different," says Salvatore, while Lillie jokes that the previously inked-up Aline now resembles a "California girl."

While she appreciates the experiment, Aline states she's ready to go back. "It's a cool experience, to see my body like this, to have no tattoos," she says, adding that she already misses the way she usually looks. "Tattoos are more than just color, I think it's a part of you."
