Bella Hadid never shies away from sharing her pride to be Palestinian, but the supermodel recently made a more permanent move to pay tribute to her heritage.
The 24-year-old has inked herself with two new tattoos in Arabic script which acknowledges her Palestinian background, which is where her father, Mohamed Hadid, was born.
The supermodel recruited celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo to complete the new tattoos, which were done in a very minimal design.
The artist shared the new inkings on Instagram saying, “Some writings for the always kind and lovely @bellahadid.”
The Arabic script which can be seen on the model’s shoulders translates in English to “my love” and “I love you”.

Hadid’s father recently publicly reflected on having to leave Palestine when he was just a newborn baby, becoming a refugee along with his other family members.
Sharing a picture from his younger years, the 72-year-old explained that he doesn’t have “a single picture of me [as] when I was a baby I was just about 9 days old when I and my family were refugees to the refugee camps in Syria from Palestine”.
He shared his thanks to Syria, Lebanon and Tunisia and most of all Jordan, where he and his family received Jordanian citizenship many years ago.
He also shared his gratitude for being able to relocate to the USA with his family.
While the model’s father is Palestinian, her mother, Yolanda Hadid, is from The Netherlands, making her Palestinian-Dutch., which she states in her Instagram bio.
