Kylie Jenner shared a photo of a gun tattoo on her ribs but is it real?

On Tuesday, Sept. 2, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star took to Instagram, where she posted, and quickly deleted, a new photo of herself sporting a gun tattoo on the left side of her ribcage.

"Luv me some @badwoodx," Jenner wrote in the caption of the photo, via a Sept. 2 report by Life & Style. In the photo, Jenner is seen from the neck down, holding up her white T-shirt and showing off her new tattoo.

Although it is unclear why Jenner deleted the photo, Life & Style suspects it may have been the result of Jenner's realization that being tattooed under the age of 18 (Jenner is 17-years-old) is illegal in the state of California.

According to Jenner's deleted Instagram post, she was tattooed by Los Angeles-based artist, Nat Wood, who also, via her Twitter account, is the owner and designer of Badwood Streetwear. On her Instagram account, Wood lists "art, tats & streetwear" as her specialties.

Earlier this year, a then-16-year-old Jenner made headlines after illegally tattooing Lionel Richie's son, Miles.

At the time, TMZ reported the incident had gone down in a record studio in Hollywood, Calif. with Jenner's sister, Khloe Kardashian, and her boyfriend, French Montana.

Sources told TMZ that 19-year-old Richie was being tattooed by John Petro when Jenner jumped in and gave him some help.

While it may have seemed harmless to some, Jenner could have been fined up to $1,000 for tattooing underage, and Petro was at risk of losing his license.

As for whether or not Jenner's tattoo is real or fake, it's hard to know for sure. That being said, it doesn't seem logical that she would delete the photo, in which a tattoo artist was tagged, if it weren't a real tattoo.
