US singer Halsey has just made her current trip to Australia even more special, scoring a bit of ink while in the country.
This last year has been pretty special for chart-topping singer Halsey. Having worked on some pretty huge tracks recently, including ‘Without Me’, and Benny Blanco’s ‘Eastside’ (both of which made the Hottest 100 for 2018), the US singer has managed to unexpectedly find herself in Australia.
Meeting up with English boyfriend Yungblud, who is currently in the country for his own tour, the pair have excited fans all over the country, announcing not only a pop-up appearance in Sydney today, but also releasing ’11 Minutes’, her fresh collaboration with Yungblud and Blink-182’s Travis Barker.
However, despite being considered one of the most popular singers going around at the moment, it turns out that Halsey’s influences come from a much heavier place, as evidenced by her most recent tattoo.
Taking to Instagram yesterday, the singer revealed that she had used her recent trip to Adelaide to cop a new Manson tattoo (“Marilyn, not Charles”, she clarified on Twitter).
Marilyn. not Charles. Sheeesh lol

A rather intriguing depiction of the artist, the tattoo was administered by Celia Dunne at Fifth Sanctum in Adelaide, and has raised a few eyebrows from some of her followers. While most have lauded the inky memento of her idol, others have criticised the rather unorthodox depiction of Manson.
Of course, while this tattoo will certainly have introduced a few of the singer’s younger fans to Marilyn Manson and his music, we’re pretty certain that Halsey is at least humble enough not to pull a Justin Bieber and claim that she made Manson relevant again.
Yungblud’s Aussie tour wraps up in a few days, so there’s still plenty of time for Halsey to hit up a few more tattoo parlours while she’s in the country.
