Paris Jackson changed up her style in a big way for the 66th annual Grammy Awards red carpet.
The normally tattooed daughter of the late Michael Jackson appeared to have no tattoos at all as she was photographed wearing a black strapless dress with a major torso cutout and high slit.
However, Jackson didn’t have all her ink removed for the occasion.
In a social media video with makeup company Cover FX, Jackson showed a time-lapse video of the behind-the-scenes process for covering up her reported 80-plus tattoos.

“#CoverFX meant business when they said total cover cream foundation would have me covered,” she wrote in the caption.
In an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” Jackson said the process “took a few hours.”
“I like switching things up,” she continued, explaining her decision. “I love my tattoos, I love my piercings, I love all the body modification stuff, art, and also sometimes I don’t want it to distract from the art that is the fashion I’m wearing. And it gives the dress its own moment, you know?”
Many fans in the comments of the video wondered why Jackson would choose to cover up her tattoos and seemed disappointed.
“The makeup is really amazing, but I love your tattoos, they are your personality,” wrote one fan.
But others were supportive: “Beautiful inside and out, makeup/ no makeup,” wrote one person.
“With or without tattoos you remain incredible and the same beautiful soul inside!” wrote another.

“It’s on my boob, it’s an alien,” she said, telling the outlet it was a spontaneous decision when she was younger.

Jackson and her godfather, Macaulay Culkin, also have matching tattoos, which she shared on social media in 2017.
