Philipps’ Instagrammed a photo of the tattoo, which reads, “aced out in her nudes,” and is on her left forearm. In the caption on her photo, Philipps wrote, “what it means is in my book” along with a heart emoji and information on where to preorder her memoir. She added, “Oh! And similar to the TITLE of my book- this only hurt a little.”

She also shared a photo of herself leaning back in the tattoo chair while the artist worked on her ink. Us Weekly reports that Philipps updated her Instagram Story before she got the tattoo. In a video update, she said, “I’m not actually nervous, you guys. I had two kids with no pain drugs. I’m fine.”

Philipps hit the tattoo parlor with her friend Kelly Oxford, a best-selling author and screenwriter. According to People magazine, Oxford was already planning to get new ink. “I came to get a tattoo and texted Bus, and she was like, ‘You know what, this morning I woke up and I wanted a tattoo.’ So here we are getting tattoos,” Oxford explained on Philipps’ Instagram Story.

In regard to Philipps’ actual tattoo, Oxford said, “I love it. I know what it is and I love it. I’m really excited for you.”

We’re excited for Philipps too, but we’re also so curious about the meaning of her tattoo! What do you think “aced out in her nudes” means? We won’t know until this fall, unfortunately, but we totally get the desire to keep the meaning secret for a while. Philipps’ memoir hits bookstores on Oct. 23. We were excited for its release before, but now, that’s only compounded by her mystery ink.
