Amber Rose revealed how Kobe Bryant’s death inspired her to get her new face tattoo.
The model/activist explained how the NBA legend’s passing made her ‘reflect’ on life during an appearance of One On One With Keyshia Cole this week.
Amber, 36, told the songstress/TV personality that Kobe’s death reminded the star to ‘live [her] best life’ with no regrets.
Rose – a mother of two – debuted a forehead tattoo of son Sebastian ‘Bash’, seven, and baby boy Slash’s names last week.
The SlutWalk founder said that the basketball player’s death made her realize how precious life is.
‘I gotta be honest. And I don’t want this to sounds corny or whatever,’ she said. ‘After Kobe died… it made me reflect on my life. And I don’t want people to be like “Oh Kobe died and you went and got a tattoo.” But it was kind of like that.’
Her own personal experiences with loss colored her perspective too.
‘My dad had cancer when he was like 40,’ Amber revealed. ‘And he went through remission and he’s good, but he almost died and I’m 36 and I was like I’ve been wanting this tattoo for a long time.’
