She said in her clip: 'What would the rock legends that inspired me have done in 2019? To pull this off, we needed a celebrity tattoo artist, [Romeo Lacoste] to make it look real…
'He traced Harry‘s 2017 Rolling Stone cover, applied it to my face, and then a special FX makeup artist did her thing.
'BTW. We know it looked ridiculous. That was the point.'

She added: 'The tattoo was not real. I love that Harry has introduced rock to a new generations of fans. Plus he’s nice to look at…
'This has always been about Rock & Roll. Harry is an anthem for the fans. The tattoo is gone. All that’s left is the music. Which is what my rockstar team and I had planned all along.'
A couple of days before, Kelsy had spoken about the inking, before she admitted ti was fake and had said: 'I wear my heart on my cheek'.

Kelsy explained in her video: 'In April of 2018, I was going through the hardest time of my life. My dog Diva died. My relationship ended.
