Aaron Carter has many face tattoos with their own stories behind them. The “Aaron’s Party” singer has spoken out about expressing himself through his ink.

“You know what, I’ve always talked about getting face tattoos and honestly, I always get tattoos knowing the intention that I can get them removed if I want,” the performer previously shared on a May 2020 episode of theHollywood Raw” podcast. “They’re not permanent like everyone says.”

“My tattoos, they started off because I was such a little kid, a scrawny little kid,” he said, explaining how the art gave him confidence. “I started getting tattoos all over me to make me look like I’m tough so people wouldn’t mess with me. And they stopped.”

As for the tattoo of Medusa on the left side of his face, he referred to the design as a “defense mechanism,” adding, “This is my body, my life, my choices.”

You could probably already guess the meaning behind the “Melanie” tattoo placed above his left eyebrow. In March of 2020, Carter got his now-ex Melanie Martin‘s moniker in ink as a tribute to their blossoming romance. When the podcast hosts asked Carter how he felt about his ink amid their off-again romance just a few months later, Carter cryptically threw shade at the time, replying, “That says ‘mistake,’ that’s not Melanie.”

Carter and Martin did end up reconciling after that podcast interview and got engaged in June 2020, and the following year, the couple welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Prince, on November 22, 2021. 


Just days after their newborn son arrived, the new dad took to Twitter to share the “devastating” news that he and Martin had split, also calling out his twin sister, Angel Carter, in the process.

“Due to personal reason [sic], Melanie Martin and I have decided to go our separate ways,” he wrote in one message, alleging, “There has been a very big lie and my sister communicating w my ex-fiancé ruined everything considering she knew what angel tried to do to me in court thanks angel you ruined my family. God bless.”

Carter went on to call his ex’s actions “unforgivable” and said he would fight for custody if needed, later indicating that he and Martin may have come to some sort of agreement. 

“Mel and I appreciate the support and concern we have been shown. We both will continue to make Prince our priority during this difficult time,” he tweeted. “Please be respectful while we transition and navigate this unfortunate situation.”
