    Amber Rose Said Kobe Bryant's Death Inspired Her Face Tattoos And She's "Happy" She Did It

    "Life is so short, just do it. Just live your best life with no regrets."

    This week, Amber Rose popped up with tattoos across her forehead and, naturally, critics had a lot to say about it...

    Well, the 36-year-old model and actor is opening up about her decision to ink the names of her two children on her face, telling singer Keyshia Cole she was inspired after the death of NBA icon Kobe Bryant.

    "I gotta be honest, and I don’t want this to sound corny, but after Kobe [Bryant] died, it made me reflect on my life,” Amber shared.

    “I thought about my dad and my dad had cancer when he was 40, and he went through remission and he’s good [now] but he almost died,” she continued.

    "And I’m 36… I’ve been wanting this tattoo for a long time. I was like, 'Life is so short, just do it. Just live your best life with no regrets.'"

    "And I'm happy I did it," she declared.

    Hey, if Amber likes it, then more power to her. It's nothing a little makeup or bangs couldn't cover if she really needed to, amirite?
