Paris Jackson, the late Michael Jackson’s 19-year-old daughter, took to Instagram this weekend to show off a new tattoo—or seven.
In a post on her named account, she parted her clothing a little to show off a column of seven symbols tattooed down her chest, along her sternum.
Fans who follow her @shittyextraterrestrial account got a slightly closer—and slightly less clothed—view in a separate post. It’s clear in this view that the symbols are each of the seven chakras, the energy centers recognized by some Eastern traditions.
People magazine screengrabbed the model’s topless Instagram story and contextualized her latest reveal: Jackson has over 50 tattoos, many of which she has shown off in topless photos on the social platform.

In 2016, Jackson made a statement on Instagram defending her frequent revealing posts, saying “being naked is part of what makes us human. for me it helps me feel more connected to mama gaia. … it is who i am and i refuse to shy away and keep my beliefs a secret.”
i'll say it again for those questioning what i stand for and how i express myself. nudity started as a movement for ‘going back to nature’, ‘expressing freedom’, ‘being healthier’ and was even called a philosophy. being naked is part of what makes us human. for me it helps me feel more connected to mama gaia. i'm usually naked when i garden. it's actually a beautiful thing and you don't have to make it sexual the way many hollywood stars (and the media) do. not only is your body a temple and should be worshipped as so, but also part of feminism is being able to express yourself in your own way, whether it's being conservative and wearing lots of clothes or showing yourself. there's different ways of absorbing mother earth's energy, my favorites are earthing which is absorbing the earths vibrations from contact between the soil and your bare feet, as well as letting your naked skin absorb the rays of the sun. the human body is a beautiful thing and no matter what "flaws" you have, whether it be scars, or extra weight, stretch marks, freckles, whatever, it is beautiful and you should express yourself however you feel comfortable. if this makes some of you upset i completely understand and i encourage you to maybe no longer follow me, but i cannot apologize for this in any way. it is who i am and i refuse to shy away and keep my beliefs a secret. every one as an opinion and every one has their beliefs. we don't always agree with one another and that's okay. but again, we are all human, and to appreciate the things that other people do that make us human helps us feel connected. how can that be a bad thing?
It must not have scared off too many, as her latest reveal was public to some 2 million followers.
