Continue reading to find out more about Jaden Smith’s fake tattoos and about who actually does have tattoos.
Jaden Smith was born in 1998 and despite his young age, has accomplished a lot. He started his acting career because of his famous dad, Will Smith.
It was in this album, Erys that Jaden started to explore the use of fake tattoos in his music videos and album promotion.
The fake tattoos are likely meant to represent that he is acting as his alter ego, not himself. The tattoos looked so realistic, that many people thought he really did get face tattoos.
To promote the album, Jaden also did a photoshoot. In the promotional pictures, he has various tattoos on his chest. This is again, likely to emphasize that the album is about his alter ego.
Another run in that Jaden Smith had with fake tattoos was in 2015. Pictures of him with a tattoo of Drake on his chest were released. It has since come out that it was a fake tattoo.
Tattoos of Jaden Smith
Although Jaden Smith does not have any tattoos, there is a celebrity with a tattoo of Jaden Smith.
The show typically consists of competitive dares, like sitting in a waiting room with a stranger and showing them every text one of the four men on the show receives.
Whoever gives the worst performance in the dare has to receive a punishment. On the 27th episode of season 3, the punishment was to get a real tattoo of the other men’s choosing.
Sal was the loser of this episode and the other men decided to give Sal a tattoo of Jaden Smith’s 15-year old face.
The tattoo is not very prominent as it is on Sal’s thigh. Sal even says he forgets about it most of the time until he gets out of the shower.
It is quite a large tattoo though and is very realistic, there is no doubt that it is Jaden Smith. Sal was unhappy about the tattoo because he says it has nothing to do with himl.
His co-star Joe Gatto says that was the point, the irrelevance is what makes it funny.
Sal has since shown Jaden Smith the tattoo in person at Comic-Con in 2017. Smith seemed to take it well and even took a selfie with Sal’s thigh.
So, although Jaden Smith does not have any tattoos of his own, his face now permanently lives on Sal Vulcano’s thigh.
