Cardi B is proudly showing off a new piercing … and the tattoo artist who gave it to her had no clue she was a huge celeb!!!
Luis Vega, the owner of City of Angels Tattoos, tells TMZ … Cardi randomly walked into his shop Monday looking to get her lip pierced. Luis says he didn’t know it was Cardi — amazing, right — until they started talking.
It’s funny … Luis thought he recognized CB’s face, and initially figured she was just a former client. After Cardi told him she was from New York, Luis told her she looked and sounded like Cardi … and that’s when light bulbs started going off.
Luis slowly realized he was dealing with an A-lister, but his suspicions weren’t confirmed until he poked his head outside and saw Cardi’s entourage in a caravan of luxury cars.
As for the piercing … we’re told CB paid a whopping $25. What a steal!!!
Luis has been so inspired by Cardi’s visit, he’s honoring her the rest of the month with a special $20 piercing for anyone who comes through.
