DMX is forever inscribed on the flesh of the woman he was set to marry before his untimely death — because she got some new ink to honor him … and it’s right up his doggone alley.
Desiree Lindstrom — who was engaged to X, and birthed his 15th child — actually enlisted the services of a famous tattoo artist in NY to show her love for her late fiance in endearing terms … hitting up one-time ‘Black Ink Crew’ star Krystal Kills for the custom job.
As you can see, Desiree got “Dog Love” written on her forearm … with a big X underneath it. The meaning might seem self-explanatory — if you know DMX, you know canines were a big part of his artistic aesthetic — but this wording is actually a bit more personal than that.
We’re told Desiree got “Dog Love” etched in for 2 reasons — one, it’s something X himself used to say. Second, our sources say Desiree considers a dog’s love to be unconditional, much like X’s. BTW, she got this done Friday night … not too long after he passed.
As we reported … X died after his organs started failing and brain function never returned.
Desiree was on hand with their young son, Exodus, for one of the vigils held for X right outside the hospital — part of the outpouring of fan love for him during his final days.
In light of all that, it’s touching to see Desiree now has a way to hold on to his memory for good and by such intimate means. X popped the question to her at Exodus’ birthday party in 2019.
