Grimes, who has dating Elon Musk on and off from 2018, took to Instagram to show off her two new tattoos, including a huge one on her leg and a delicate inking on her head.

The musician posted a photo of her leg, adorned from her ankle to the top of her thigh with sprawling red ink, depicting an intricate branch.

Her second post was even more shocking, detailing a similar design in black on her inner ear, captioned: "One step closer to a face tattoo," tagging the artist behind her new body art.

Elon's next high-profile relationship was with actress Talulah Riley. The star is known for her roles in titles such as Pride & Prejudice, Inception and St. Trinian's. Talulah and Elon married in 2010 but two years later Elon called off their marriage and filed for divorce.

However, a year later, the pair remarried and announced they were officially back together. But, by the end of 2014, Elon had filed for divorce again and by 2016, the marriage was over.

In late 2016, Aquaman actress Amber Heard began dating Elon shortly after her high-profile divorce from Johnny Depp. Amber only dated Elon for a year, and the couple parted ways due to busy careers getting in the way.
