Heather Rae Young Explains Real Reason For Butt Tattoo For Tarek El Moussa

Heather Rae Young and Tarek El Moussa

After being together for almost two years, Flip or Flop’s Tarek El Moussa and Selling Sunset’s Heather Rae Young are prepping for their forthcoming wedding. The couple’s journey from dating to engagement to the altar has been well documented on social media. El Moussa and Young have been shown a lot of love and affection toward each other. Young’s latest show of love made quite a splash online. The Selling Sunset star finally explained the real reason for her butt tattoo dedicated to El Moussa.

Heather Rae Young and Tarek El Moussa have become America’s favorite real estate couple since announcing their relationship in 2019. Young and El Moussa got engaged last year and have been documenting their wedding planning process in El Moussa’s new show Tarek’s Flip Side. The reality couple did a sit-down interview with E!’s Daily Pop. After making headlines for her tattoo, which says "Yes sir, Mr. El Moussa" in cursive lettering, Young gave her reasoning for tattooing her future husband’s name on her body.

I did it as something special for my fiancé, my future husband. I will be Mrs. El Moussa, so this is my name. And it is a special thing that we do around the house: Daddy is the boss, I'm the queen of the house. We do it with the kids.

Heather Rae Young’s reasoning for getting the tattoo came as an innocent tribute to Tarek El Moussa. Knowing the meaning behind it and how the couple interacts at home puts things in a different perspective. El Moussa had already made his feelings known on social media before deleting the post. Since the two reality stars are getting married, her nod to her new last name was admirable. Some might still find the act a little cringy, but at the same time, the couple doesn’t mind showing their love for one another.

While Heather Rae Young and Tarek El Moussa prepare for their wedding, the relationship has become part of their brand as much as the real estate backgrounds. Shortly after their engagement, Young even teased she and El Moussa might appear on each other’s shows (as evident by her appearance on El Moussa's new show). As their lives play out on reality television, El Moussa gave his thoughts on why people are obsessed with his and ex Christina Anstead’s private lives. The former couple has managed to still work together despite getting a divorce.

Throughout their relationship, Heather Rae Young and Tarek El Moussa have been affectionate so the tattoo actually isn’t unusual for them. The reality couple has pet names for each other like many couples. Young, like many fiancées, decided to make her devotion to El Moussa permanent.
