Halle Berry has shocked her fans on Monday evening when she took to her Instagram page to reveal a large, gorgeous and just-inked tattoo spanning the length of her back.

She got the tattoo following the steps of Lady Gaga who revealed recently as well that she got a spine tattoo on her back in honour of her latest award winning movie, “A Star Is Born”.

Halle Berry’s new tattoo however, is a bit more whimsical as she hinted in the caption of her “reveal” post. She shared that the design makes her feel like a real-life mermaid. With her ageless beauty, who is to say that she isn’t a mermaid?

She captioned her post with the question: “Who says I’m not a mermaid”.

Note to world: If you are going to show off your body ink (or parts) then the 52-year old actress has given a smart template to do just that. It would involve going topless, donning on sequined attire and holding an egg in front of a cooking unit, just so that we don’t focus too much on the one most important thing.
