Billie Eilish's collection of ink has been a longtime mystery to fans until recently, when the singer revealed she got her first tattoo this past year. While Eilish has shown off temporary ink in the past, she's keeping her first permanent tattoo a secret.

In her annual time-capsule video with Vanity Fair, which dropped on Nov. 30, the "Therefore I Am" singer reflected on her year and reacted to her responses to questions from the year prior. Back in 2019, when asked what she would embark on for the first time in the coming year, Eilish had admitted to wanting a tattoo. "No face tattoos," she said at the time. "The only two tattoos I want to get are the ones that barely anyone can see." After watching the clip from the previous year, Eilish shared that she did in fact get a tattoo, "but you won't ever see it." She continued, "I did what I said I'd do. What do you expect?"

While she didn't reveal any more details, our best guess is that Eilish opted for an easily hidden tiny tattoo. We likely won't get a glimpse of Eilish's ink anytime soon, but if her edgy nail art is any indication, we can imagine it's pretty damn cool.
