Grimes, 33, real name Claire Elise Boucher, shared in her social media posts that she was getting the design in white ink.

It’s a less common styling for tattoos but seems appropriate for the spidery design that covers her entire back. 

Her ‘alien’ stylings come after her partner – the world’s richest man – Elon revealed an ambitious plan to get humans on Mars by 2026 – seven years before NASA aims to land astronauts on the Red Planet.

The tattoo was designed by Nusi Quero and she called Nusi ‘an alien brain’.

The most common form of tattoo is made up of black ink and color inks, white tattoos contain nothing but a single white ink.

What is a white tattoo? 

The most common form of tattoo is made up of black ink and colour inks, white tattoos contain nothing but a single white ink. 

White tattoos are seen as a more subtle art form than common black or coloured tattoos and is essential they are undertaken by a skilled artist. 

The marks will fade much quicker than with other tattoos as they are thick in their consistency but very lightly pigmented.     

White tattoos will often cause a raised appearance as the thick ink causes scars underneath the skin.

Last month, Grimes took to Instagram, to express her extraterrestrial interests amid her partner’s ongoing efforts to enable travel to Mars. 

The star, who shares son X Æ A-Xii with the SpaceX CEO Musk, 49, wrote in the caption: ‘Ready to die with the red dirt of Mars beneath my feet Starbase Tx.’

The Canadian songstress wore a long-sleeved black top with a red plaid skirt with black boots and floral leggings while posing in front of both massive cranes and the interior of Musk’s Starbase facility in Texas.

Last month, Grimes, who began seeing Musk in 2018, said in an online Q&A that she wanted to relocate to Mars after she turns 50 to help erect a human colony there, The Sun reported. 

Grimes added of the ambitious move, ‘Manual labor until death most likely, but hopefully that can change.’

SpaceX recently had another setback with its Starship project, as a prototype Mars rocket failed about six minutes into its test flight, according to the AP.

After the stainless steel rocket shattered in Texas, Musk took the attempt in stride, tweeting, ‘At least the crater is in the right place!’

He noted that a ‘significant’ event took place before the landing sequence involving the engines.

‘Should know what it was once we can examine the bits later today,’ he said.

Musk said that he and his staff continue streamlining the design of the rocket, adding, ‘Hopefully, one of those improvements covers this problem.’

Musk said earlier this month that his company will touch their ships down on Mars ‘well before 2030,’ and the vexing overlying issue of the endeavor ‘is making Mars Base Alpha self-sustaining.’

In regards to his Mars plans, last month, he spoke on the audio-only Clubhouse app about his was to establish a self-sustaining Martian civilisation.

The ambitious deadline gives him five and a half years to get the massive Starship spacecraft off the ground – but there is a long way to go as the massive 160ft rocket is still at the prototype stage – with a second high-altitude test flight due soon.
