Elon Musk's girlfriend Grimes shows off 'beautiful alien scars' newly inked across her back

Elon Musk's rapper girlfriend Grimes has unveiled her unique new back tattoo. 

On Sunday, the Oblivion hitmaker, who revealed earlier this year that she wants to help found a human colony on Mars, revealed her new inking, which she described as representing 'beautiful alien scars'. 

Grimes, 33, real name Claire Elise Boucher, posted a photo to Instagram of the inking that covers her whole back, with delicate waves etched into her skin with the use of white ink - a less common styling for tattoos.

In the caption, she wrote: 'Don't have a good pic cuz it hurts too much and I need to sleep haha, and it'll be red for a few wks, but gna be beautiful alien scars (sic).' 

The tattoo was designed by Nusi Quero and a tattoo artist known as Tweak T on Instagram, as she tagged the duo in the post. 

She called Nusi 'an alien brain' and revealed Tweak T had given her the inking.  

The most common form of tattoo is made up of black ink and colour inks, white tattoos contain nothing but a single white ink.

What is a white tattoo? 

The most common form of tattoo is made up of black ink and colour inks, white tattoos contain nothing but a single white ink. 

White tattoos are seen as a more subtle art form than common black or coloured tattoos and is essential they are undertaken by a skilled artist. 

The marks will fade much quicker than with other tattoos as they are thick in their consistency but very lightly pigmented.     

White tattoos will often cause a raised appearance as the thick ink causes scars underneath the skin.

Last month, Grimes took to Instagram, to express her extraterrestrial interests amid her partner's ongoing efforts to enable travel to Mars. 

The star, who shares son X Æ A-Xii with the SpaceX CEO Musk, 49, wrote in the caption: 'Ready to die with the red dirt of Mars beneath my feet Starbase Tx.'

The Canadian songstress wore a long-sleeved black top with a red plaid skirt with black boots and floral leggings while posing in front of both massive cranes and the interior of Musk's Starbase facility in Texas.

Last month, Grimes, who began seeing Musk in 2018, said in an online Q&A that she wanted to relocate to Mars after she turns 50 to help erect a human colony there, The Sun reported. 

Grimes added of the ambitious move, 'Manual labor until death most likely, but hopefully that can change.' 

Quirky style: The Vancouver native, whose real name is Claire Elise Boucher, started dating Elon Musk in 2018 and the couple welcomed a son together on May 4 2020

SpaceX recently had another setback with its Starship project, as a prototype Mars rocket failed about six minutes into its test flight, according to the AP.

After the stainless steel rocket shattered in Texas, Musk took the attempt in stride, tweeting, 'At least the crater is in the right place!'

He noted that a 'significant' event took place before the landing sequence involving the engines.

Visionary: Tech billionaire Musk, 49, has stated that his company will have space ships landing on the red planet 'well before 2030'

'Should know what it was once we can examine the bits later today,' he said.

Musk said that he and his staff continue streamlining the design of the rocket, adding, 'Hopefully, one of those improvements covers this problem.'

Musk said earlier this month that his company will touch their ships down on Mars 'well before 2030,' and the vexing overlying issue of the endeavor 'is making Mars Base Alpha self-sustaining.'

Family: Grimes and Musk, who started dating in 2018, share a son together, the unusually named X Æ A-Xii. The tot will turn one on May 4
