Although it's unclear if the tattoo was designed in Tess's likeness, the woman on her leg has the same auburn waves and flushed cheeks that she does.

Tess's close-up photo of the tattoo sees the woman posed with her hands behind her head while surrounded by flowers.

The size 22 model is clearly a fan of the ink, but she admitted that the timing of her new tattoo probably wasn't the best.

Tess and her husband, Nick Holliday, are celebrating their six-year anniversary this week with a getaway, but she will be forced to refrain from some vacation activities while her leg is heeling.?

'Who gets a giant tattoo right before you leave on a mini vacation?!' she asked while sharing a picture of her leg propped up on a pillow. 'No hot tubbin for me.'

A tattoo typically takes three to four weeks to heal, and while it is okay to shower, continued exposure to water in a bathtub or hot tub could damage the tattoo.?

Of course Tess knows the drill; her arms and legs are covered with tattoos, including portraits of Dolly Parton and Miss Piggy.?

'My tattoos are like a living journal for me as each one is indicative of where I was at on life,' she told Stylist?in 2016. 'I was inspired by everything from other artists to nature and traveling when getting them.'

'As most of you know, @nickhollidayco & I got engaged in an old photobooth, & ever since then, it’s been our thing (but only the chemical photobooths),' she wrote.?

'This week we celebrate our 6th anniversary of driving each other nuts & I’m grateful for not only him, but the friends in our life like @jackiedunnsmith that make our hearts so full #havelovewilltravel #effyourbeautystandards.'

Nick reached out to Tess on Tumblr in 2012 to tell her he loved her body positive stance, and the two have been together ever since. Together, they are raising their one-year-old son Bowie and her 11-year-old son Rylee from a previous relationship.?

'Maybe it’s my cold medicine talking, but do you ever notice that the angriest ppl, the ones that are always trying to bring others down to their level are the ones who failed at life?' she asked.

' I say it in my book: No person who is content with their life spends their time b***hing about other people,' she continued. '2018 is gonna be the year all the fed up folks like me come for the ignorant ones & ignite real change. Let’s love each other, k?'
