Last month, Kendall Jenner got a tattoo. It’s a tiny tattoo, hardly bigger than a freckle, and it’s on the inside of her middle finger, and it’s in white ink, so that the tattoo looks like Kendall spilled Wite-Out on her hand and failed to notice–but it’s a tattoo nonetheless. But that might have been just the beginning of Kendall’s summer: now, it looks like a Kendall Jenner nipple ring might be the newest fashion development for the 19-year-old. Reports are rampant–but are they accurate?
Several sources are reporting Kendall Jenner nipple ring sightings. TMZ was first out of the gate with the rumor, stating that Kendall had gotten the jewelry recently and had also taken to wearing it to red carpet events–including the ESPYs, at which father Caitlyn Jenner was celebrated with the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage. The site claimed to have spotted “a faint trace of what looked like metal balls in the nipple area.” Furthermore, they pointed out, Kylie’s already on record with a nipple piercing, having gotten hers earlier this year.
Later, the UK’s Mirror advanced the claim, stating that Kendall was hiding her piercing in a tiny orange bikini–the very one at the top of this page, which Kendall shared a photo of on Instagram only hours earlier. The Mirror was quick to suggest, though, that it might have been tougher to see the piercing through the crimson dress Kendall wore to the Paper Towns premiere earlier in the weekend.
And the Daily Mail further acknowledged nipple ringitude, though that publication added the caveat that said piercing is “difficult to detect.”
Difficult is right–depending, of course, on how long you’re willing to squint. All of the photographs attached to this article are from the past week. Do you see a Kendall Jenner nipple ring–or any other kind of piercing? Or is this all just more fodder for gossip?
