The Danish supermodel, 52, showcased her unbelievably toned physique on Instagram in a cute striped, two-piece - but it was her many tattoos which caused a stir.
In the photos, Helena looked natural as she posed in the waves with a beautiful backdrop. One image saw her lifting her arms and placing her hands in her hair, and she showed off her many inkings.

Helena’s arms had a series of tattoos up them from stars, to flowers and numerous other natural-inspired markings.
Her fans loved her look, but some of them were left less than impressed.
"You are amazing. But the tatoo [sic] is too much," wrote one fan, to which Helena quickly commented back: "Thank god there's only 9 of them then."
The follower was left a little sheepish and responded: "Oops," before lavishing Helena with more praise for being "natural" and "perfect".

Helena has been fortunate enough to be able to be with some of her loved ones, including her son, Mingus, during the lockdowns.
On New Years Eve she gave thanks with a heartfelt message. "This year made me grateful as well," she wrote on Instagram. "For all the time I got to spend with my son, for how much more immersed in nature I was.
