Jada Pinkett Smith Got a Meaningful New Tattoo

"Tomorrow is not promised."

Jada Pinkett Smith shared that she planned on getting a full sleeve tattoo, but things are getting started much earlier than she anticipated. In a new Instagram post, she explained that she wanted to start the process when she turned 60 years old. However, the new post shows the beginnings of a new sleeve already — and Pinkett Smith is only 49. In her caption, she wrote that "tomorrow is not promised" and that she wanted to get started on the art ASAP, since she's ready to represent "the Divine Feminine journey within and without."

E! News notes that back in May, Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow Smith, and her mother Adrienne Banfield got lotus flower tattoos on an episode of Red Table Talk. The "three-generational lotus artwork" is on the same arm as Pinkett Smith's new goddess piece, which could be expanding to include more deities. Her caption named other goddesses from various faiths.

"I always said I would get a sleeve at 60 but tomorrow is not promised. Soooo … I'm starting to build my sleeve now!" she wrote. "Repp'n the Divine Feminine journey within and without. ✨Jai Ma✨ #MataSita #Allat #Oshun #QuanYin."

Friends Jahnavi Harrison and Jay Shetty commented on the post, writing, "Oh wow. So so so so beautiful Jada!!! I can't wait to see her in person!!" and, "So Dope and divine."

Though Pinkett Smith didn't name the artist for her latest piece, the lotus designs came courtesy of celebrity-favorite artist Doctor Woo. When she got the flowers, Pinkett Smith mentioned that she was considering getting more and it's clear now she's committing to the process.

"Look what we did!!!!," she wrote alongside her Instagram post at the time. "Thank you @_dr_woo_ for your patience and generosity of your craft and spirit [sparkle emoji] Now I want a sleeve!!!!"
