Lake Bell finally got inked.
Despite being in a relationship to one of the world’s most in-demand tattooists, Scott Campbell, for six years, the Home Again actress, 38, has only just now taken the plunge and let her add some permanent art to her body.
“After six years on the waiting list… finally sat down with my favorite client ever… @lakebell ,” he wrote in the caption, featuring a photo of Bell with a tattoo on each shoulder.
For the first time the needle was in the other hand as, despite Bell not knowing how to tattoo, she has added some ink to her husband on more than one occasion.
She told Rachael Ray that they use his body as a type of vision board.
“So the thing is, we have this way of praying, in a way,” Lake explained on the Rachael show in September, “which is to send positive energy or juju out there, when we really, really want something — and we only use it when it’s really important — he’s like, ‘Tattoo it on me.’”

In September, the actress spoke to PEOPLE about the difficulties of being a mom of two young children.
“It’s complicated,” she said about her expanded family. “I tweeted recently, ‘Does anyone have any advice about this two-kids things?’ And I think people thought I was joking, but I was not joking. I was like, ‘Seriously, what do you do?’”
Bell also spoke about normalizing the challenges women face in “bouncing back” after pregnancy.
“It’s nice that people say, ‘Wow, you’re doing well!’ But it’s going to take a second for me to get in fighting shape,” she said. “I want to debunk that a little bit. I want people to admit, ‘I’m wearing Spanx!’ which I am.”
She added, “You’ve created a human. My baby was 11 pounds; the body is incredible. I’m still breastfeeding. I wish it was more normalized, that you have some poundage after.”
