It seems that Simone Ashley is as rebellious as her character Kate Sharma, and we are all loving her more. The Bridgerton star has been in everyone's conversation after the second season was finally released letting the fans see her in her spectacular performance as the new leading lady of the show. While Simone Ashley portrayed Kate Sharma on Bridgerton 2, many fans also recognize her for her participation in Sex Education where she played Olivia.

Many of us dealt with the pandemic and lockdowns by binge-watching Netflix series and working from home, but apparently, the actress got inventive and did something we bet not many people did.

In a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Simone Ashley revealed that she got so bored in lockdown that she tattoed herself. The actress has many talents, but a tattoo artist? Apparently, the actress learned to do this by watching tutorials on Youtube created by inmates.

Simone Ashley revealed that back in 2020 when the lockdown was happening around the world she was in Los Angeles and while there, just like everybody else, she started to learn new things like baking banana bread and tie-dying. But her imagination took her to another level and started to wonder if she could get her own tattoo pen “with the needle and everything.”

Kimmel then asked her where did she get it and Simone said that online because it was surprisingly easy and not even her ID was needed.

Then, in order to learn how to tattoo because it was the first time she was doing this, she did the most relatable thing, she went to Youtube and searched “How to do a tattoo at home?” She obviously found one video that helped her a lot because it gave her all the information she needed.

“I found this video and it was like 'you can use this deodorant stick, it has a chemical reaction on the transfer paper' and all of that stuff and then it started getting a bit deep and I was like 'oh, this is really interesting stuff.

When she finished watching the video, she went on to look at the username and got surprised by it. “I looked at the username and it was called and then I went to his videos and was like 'oh there is an inmate doing videos in prison this is a fab idea' and then I did it”

Then, the actress revealed she inked herself an Egyptian sphynx on her ankle. Kimmel, who thought the design was a dog, told his guest, "Keep practicing, I guess," before agreeing with her that she did a "pretty good" job on the design. "I'm doing your tattoo after the show, right?" she asked Kimmel, who replied, "I have no tattoos, but if I ever get one, I'm gonna call you and ask you to do it."
