Carrie Ann Inaba Hilariously Opens Up About the Misspelled Tattoo She Got While on Tour With Madonna
Yikes! A moment of joy quickly turned into a moment of regret when Carrie Ann Inaba made a “rash” decision and got a tattoo in 1993 when she was on tour with Madonna.
While the TV personality was working as one of the “Borderline” singer, she decided to get some ink on her ankle that was supposed to spell “courageous love” in Japanese characters. It wasn’t until much later, though, that Carrie Ann found out what her tattoo actually meant.
“I’m in Japan many years later and these girls were like ‘he hehe’ and I go, ‘I know, courageous love — cool right?’” the 51-year-old explained during a recent episode of The Talk. “And they were like, ‘Rough sex.’”
The Dancing With the Stars judge then lifted up her leg to show everyone in the audience the proof. “I need to fix it,” she laughed. Since Carrie Ann replaced Julie Chen on The Talk, after the Big Brother host decided to leave the program, she has been sharing a bunch of great stories on the CBS series that her fans can relate to.
“I realized I love having a voice and being able to help people by sharing my own stories,” she previously shared to Closer Weekly. “That’s the key to success and fulfillment: to work hard and go to bed at night feeling that I used my time well.”

Carrie Ann seems to have found her true calling on The Talk. Although we loved her over the past 27 season of the reality competition show, this just seems to just come natural to her.
“They auditioned a lot of people, so I’m just really lucky that it worked out the way it did,” she said about getting the gig. “It’s a very diverse panel and I like being a part of that.”
Here’s to hoping all of Carrie Ann’s future tattoos are spelled correctly!
