“For the people that are telling me I’m too pretty for a face tat are the same people that would tell me that I’m ‘too pretty’ even if they thought I was ugly and lie to me Lol,” Rose wrote on Instagram in response to the criticism.

“Or they would just tell me I’m ugly so either way the moral of the story is do whatever the f**k you want in life,” she added.

Rose appeared on Wednesday’s episode of “Fox Soul TV” where she talked about the inspiration behind the face tattoo, which features Bash and Slash written in cursive.

“I gotta be honest, and I don’t want this to sound corny, but after Kobe died it made me reflect on my life,” Rose shared on the episode. (RELATED: Check Out The Best Photos Of Amber Rose On The Internet)

“I thought about my dad and my dad had cancer when he was 40, and he went through remission and he’s good now but he almost died,” she continued. “And I’m 36… I’ve been wanting this tattoo for a long time… life is so short, just do it. Just live your best life with no regrets.”

“That’s just how I felt, and I’m happy I did it,” she said.

The model claimed she isn’t letting the criticism get to her.

“I’ve been through worse scrutiny than the tattoo. I sleep like a baby every night,” she said. “I don’t even worry.”
