Camila Cabello gets tattoo inspired by Shakespeare in Love

Camila Cabello has been inked with her first tattoo.

The Havana hitmaker appears to have taken inspiration from Gwyneth Paltrow’s 1998 movie Shakespeare in Love for her new ink, which features on the inside of her right pinky finger.

The tattoo is a quote from the romantic period comedy-drama and reads, “It’s a mystery.”


Cabello decided to take the plunge during a recent night out in Los Angeles with her boyfriend, Shawn Mendes, who also added a new design to his collection of body art.

West Hollywood tattoo artist Kane Navasard debuted the small inking of the letter “A” in script font behind Mendes’s right ear – a tiny tribute to his teenage sister Aaliyah – in a post on Instagram.

“Little letter ‘A’ for the man @shawnmendes,” Navasard captioned the black-and-white photo.

The couple has yet to comment on its new tattoos, but Cabello previously indicated having a permanent inking wasn’t for her.

Asked if she had ever considered getting a tattoo, the 22-year-old told New York radio station KTU 103.5 FM, “I don’t think so because, for me, I feel like I go through different phases in my life and, for me, like everything has to change… I just like to transform. I don’t even like to wear the same clothes or like, the same bracelet. When I move on from something, it’s very drastic.”

The former Fifth Harmony singer has been dating Mendes since July.
