Tuesday evening’s GQ Men of the Year Awards left us reeling.
There’s no doubt that Matilde Mourinho stole the spotlight, but Jourdan Dunn made heads turn as she flashed her roman numeral 3 rib cage tattoo on the red carpet at London’s Royal Opera House for the awards ceremony.

Earlier this year, Jourdan became the first black model in 12 years to land a solo cover of Vogue.
Because it’s a part of the body that’s normally hidden, rib cage tattoos are becoming increasingly popular. According to The Guardian, visible tattoos can hurt your career prospects and may stop you from getting a job.
However, while not a stain on your job prospects, the rib area is also considered one of the most painful places to get a tattoo.
