Florence Pugh changed her mind over wrist tattoo at last minute

Florence Pugh has shared how she ended up getting a bee design tattooed on her wrist.

During Elle U.K. magazine’s Ask Me Anything video series, the Little Women actress showed off the inking on her left wrist and revealed that she doesn’t know why she asked for the bee because she had always been planning to get one of a snail.

“It’s the only one that I have. If I ever spoke about getting a tattoo, it was always that I was going to get a snail,” she explained. “And on the day, Evan Tattoo, he’s in New York, he’s an amazing tattoo artist, I went in with friends and they all got their tattoos done, and he said, ‘Are you sure you don’t want anything?’ and for some reason, it came out of me, and I said, ‘I want a bee.’

“Basically, I ended up shaving part of the bum (off the bee design), I said I wanted it to be rounded but slightly pointy – there’s very specific bees and this is a worker bee.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the 24-year-old named the tiered blue Louis Vuitton dress she wore to the Oscars and the pink and white Emilia Wickstead gown that she sported to a Little Women premiere as her favourite red carpet looks.

She also explained that while she likes to get dolled up for the red carpet, but has no issue with looking “normal” in her Instagram cooking videos.

“When I’m making marmalade, I don’t have pretty hair. There are moments in my life when I get dolled up and two amazing artists will come to my house and paint, pull and brush me for two hours. Then I go to the red carpet,” Florence continued. “That’s a two-hour event, then I go home and take it off. But when I make marmalade, I look normal.”
