When Amber Rose showed up at the Grammy Awards, onlookers were definitely stunned – and not just because of her impressive post-baby body or curve-hugging gown with a plunging neckline. From the moment she stepped on the red carpet, it was immediately apparent that her trademark tatts had disappeared.

Was she having a moment of tattoo regret or did she simply not want to distract from her elegant ensemble? Either way, her lack of body art came as a surprise as Rose is known for proudly displaying her inkings. From a portrait of her husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa, to an image of her mother as a child, she has a multitude of elaborate designs on various parts of her body. In fact, she even made a house call earlier this month to renowned artist Nikko Hurtado, who gave her a new piece on her shoulder.

So how did Rose go from having a full-on sleeve to bare arms? Despite what you may think, she didn't undergo laser tattoo removal. Instead, the socialite opted to have a makeup artist temporarily cover up her ink for the Grammys. It must have taken a lot of cosmetics and some expert skin-matching techniques to camouflage her intricate and intense designs. Apparently, though, the blonde bombshell decided it was worth covering them up to keep up appearances at the star-studded event. It's not uncommon for celebs to conceal their tatts for a special occasion, such as an awards show or a wedding. Sometimes a particular piece of body art can take away from the overall intended look, and A-listers want to make sure the attention is on them – not their ink. After all, Rose worked hard to get back in shape after having son Sebastian nearly a year ago, and her efforts certainly paid off. By hiding her prominent ink, she made sure that all eyes were on her newly svelte figure and striking Naeem Khan gold gown.
