While one fan recently made headlines for a tattoo she received of the singer’s signature after Lizzo autographed her backside at Australian music festival Splendour in the Grass, others say their designs are looking a little awkward now.
This week, a former dancer accused the singer of allegedly pressuring her to touch a nude performer at a strip club.
Dancers have also alleged that Lizzo, an advocate for body positivity, criticized a performer's weight gain and then later allegedly fired the employee for recording a meeting.
Claims in the lawsuit against the 'Water Me' singer, include sexual harassment, creating a hostile work environment, false imprisonment, and interference with prospective economic advantage.
The lawsuit added that the 35-year-old made dancers go through an ‘excruciating’ 12-hour audition.
The captain of Lizzo’s dance team, Shirlene Quigley, is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
One Twitter user by the name of Payton Mitchell said following the news that she will never get ink honoring a celebrity again.

“This Lizzo lawsuit has solidified that I will never get a tattoo that references a celebrity or their music/book/etc unless that person is dead and can’t screw up horribly lmao,” they wrote.
Another former fan said: “After the recent controversy, I have decided to join the movement removing my Lizzo tattoo.”
A third commented: “My Lizzo tattoo is irrevocably harmed.”
Whereas one user gave some sound advice to those with Lizzo ink.
“If you have a Lizzo tattoo you’re fine .. change it to activision blizzard or shinzo Abe,” they shared.
I mean, who could forget when Johnny Depp changed his tribute tattoo to his former flame Winona Ryder to ‘Wino Forever’.
Major props for creativity.
Lizzo has since hit at the ‘sensationalist’ claims, adding that she isn't the 'villain' in this narrative.
"My character has been criticized. Usually I choose not to respond to false allegations but these are as unbelievable as they sound and too outrageous to not be addressed,” she penned.
"These sensationalized stories are coming from former employees who have already publicly admitted that they were told their behaviour on tour was inappropriate and unprofessional."
She finished with: "I'm hurt but I will not let the good work I've done in the world be overshadowed by this.
"I want to thank everyone who has reached out in support to lift me up during this difficult time."
