Chrissy Teigen & John Legend Got Matching Tattoos and Pitched New ‘Legends of Ink’ Reality Series in 1 Fell Swoop

There are reality shows about housewives, private yacht stewardesses, gold miners and real estate agents. Now, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have an idea for a new series that’s totally too cool for school: Legends of Ink.

Wait, neither of them are tatted up, you might be thinking. Well, now they are and they’re ready to share their new journey as a “cool tattoo family” with the world.

It all started today when the 33-year-old author and Lip Sync Battle host and her 40-year-old singer hubby got their first tattoos. Naturally, Teigen shared their fresh tats on Instagram and revealed they’re really leaning into their new identities as people with tattoos.

She captioned a snap of their new ink, “Hey guys, please don’t talk to us unless u have tattoos we are a cool tattoo family now and we only want to talk to other tattoo families (srry if this seems harsh).”

She went on to thank celebrity tattoo artist Winter Stone, saying, “You are not only incredibly talented but you are very kind and delightful and welcome over any time!!” Stone, who has also tattooed Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas among many others, showcased his signature precise fine single needle style by tattooing a tiny heart on Teigen’s finger and the names “John-Luna-Miles” on her forearm. Legend’s version of the couples-tattoo reads, “Chrissy-Luna-Miles.”

But their new “no new non-tattooed friends” lifestyle doesn’t stop there. Teigen and Legend also put together a little reality show pitch to showcase their recently conceived passion project, Legends of Ink. You could call it a must-see.

“By far the stupidest thing you will see today,” Teigen joked about her and her hubby’s pitch.

Cheesy? Maybe. But, Bravo, if you’re reading this, hop to it. We need Legends of Ink ASAP.
