In the video Cardi explained that she would like to give Offset a tattoo in exchange for one of her own—at least, after they’ve both learned from his favorite artist, Nikko Hurtado. Offset was initially hesitant, claiming that his wife doesn’t know how to draw, but the pair ultimately agreed to tattoo the date of their wedding, September 20, 2017 (9.20.17), which wouldn’t require too much artistic skill.
Guided by Nikko, the pair learned the finer points of body art: tracing, practicing on a rubber arm, and eventually, inking the date on each other’s hands. Though Cardi said her tattoo hurt, Offset was a total pro under the needle. He didn’t flinch and even sang a little song. The best part? He’ll never forget their anniversary, which almost happened earlier in the episode.
