At the premiere for "Scream 4", the actress was spotted with a small black heart on her right cheek. The mark inspired many to wonder if the design is an actual tattoo or something temporary.
According to gossip blog SugerScape, the small mark isn't permanent. Grimes has been wearing it for the past several weeks in honor of the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
Grimes is part of a cause, called the Spread the Heart Movement. On a video on her official site, Grimes encourages her fans to take the extra dollars they usually spend on nonessential items and instead donate it to help the victims via the Yoshiki Foundation. Grimes says that she normally spends a few bucks on film for her camera, but that she's donating to help Japan. "Where are your extra dollars going?" she asks. "Spread your heart and let it be Japan." The Foundation describes itself as "a California non-profit, public benefit corporation founded in 2010 by Japanese musician Yoshiki of the multi-million-selling rock band X Japan."
While Grimes's dedication to a cause is certainly admirable, most Web searchers can't seem to get past the heart on her cheek. Over the past several weeks, online interest in "shenae grimes tattoo" and "does shenae grimes have a real tattoo" have both soared. Hopefully people can relax now--it isn't permanent.
The interest in Grimes is sure to have a positive effect on her career. The actress has a starring role in this weekend's highly anticipated horror flick, "Scream 4" opposite Emma Roberts and Neve Campbell.
