Halsey's New, Delicate Hand Tattoo Is a Special Tribute
It honors her late friend and collab partner, Juice WRLD.
Yesterday, July 6th, Juice WRLD’s “Life’s A Mess” featuring Halsey dropped six months after the rapper’s untimely death in December caused by an accidental overdose. To commemorate both the artist and the single, Halsey commissioned a delicate, new hand tattoo from artist NAL.
“Juice was one of the greatest people I have ever known, and one of the most brilliant artists we will ever live to witness,” Halsey captioned a July 6th snippet from “Life’s A Mess” on her Instagram. “A true genius who had lyric and melody spilling out of him without any second thought or hesitation. And a beautiful soul who believed in spreading love and creating a community for people to feel less alone.”
To honor her late friend and celebrate their final single together, Halsey got “life’s a mess 999” written in cursive script across her knuckles.
The 999 is a tribute to Juice WRLD’s 999 Club, which is all about “Taking the negative (666) and reversing it,” as the official 999 Club Instagram states.
“Life’s A Mess” is the third posthumous single released from Juice WRLD’s upcoming album Legends Never Die. The first was “Righteous,” followed by “Tell Me U Luv Me,” featuring Trippie Redd.
Halsey also wrote in her tattoo post, “It means everything to me that I could be a part of this album. I cried the first time that I heard it. With all the love in my heart, #lljw.”

Legends Never Die will be released this Friday, July 10th, and will feature 15 songs that “best represent the music Juice was in the process of creating,” before he passed, as stated in an Instagram post on Juice WRLD’s account.
