We all know Cardi B as the fun-loving, outspoken and hugely successful hip-hop rapper.

Cardi is well known for a lot of things! And one of them is certainly her image.

But it's taken quite the change recently - after the star revealed a huge new back tattoo!

Take a look below.

We all know and love Cardi B for her no-nonsense approach to life...

She's constantly entertaining fans via her social media accounts, and updating us on her daily life.

There's no doubt, she is hugely successful...

And she has been named as one of the most popular female rap artists of our generation.

But Cardi had a pretty difficult start in life...

Born in the Bronx, NY, Cardi (her real name is Belcalis Almanzar) came from a life of domestic violence and poverty and had to resort to stripping aged nineteen to make ends meet. "The first time I stripped I was really embarrassed, I felt like I could hear my parents voice in my head," she told ID magazine last year. "After a while, I didn't even care anymore. I was seeing the money that I feel like I would've never seen ever."

But alongside her stripping...

Cardi would be a very popular social media presence and she would regularly upload music videos of herself to Vine and Instagram. Keep scrolling to read her worrying Twitter post...

In 2015, she joined the cast of the VH1 reality TV series Love & Hip Hop: New York...

But after 2 seasons, Cardi announced that she would be leaving the show to pursue a career in music - the thing she was truly passionate about.

She soon made her musical debut on Jamaican reggae fusion singer Shaggy's remix to his single "Boom Boom"...

And the rest is history.

With an estimated net worth of around $8m, and even being hailed as one of TIME's most influential people in the world last year, the star has truly made her mark on the industry.

Her breakthrough hit landed her in some trouble, however...

"Bodak Yellow" skyrocketed to number one on the Billboard Top 100, making her the second rapper to get to number 1 with a solo song. The first was Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)" in 1998, BBC News reports. But it wasn't long before things went south...

Many accused Cardi of stealing from another rapper...

Waves of  listeners pointed out the resemblance between Cardi's hit and Kodak Black's 2015 tune "No Flockin."

But, in response to the backlash, Cardi insisted she was merely inspired by Kodak Black's song...

Cardi was fully open about the fact she was inspired by "him and his flow," but denied she plagiarized the song. In fact, Kodak Black later released a remix of "Bodak Yellow," so he can't have been too phased by the whole thing.

Before she became an awarding-winning singer, she was a social media star...

She first found fame when some of her posts on Vine and Instagram went viral, catapulting her to instant stardom. Her stage name, Cardi B, came from her family nickname... Bacardi. Quite fitting, don't you agree?

The star has since become renowned for her headline-making behavior...

With her explicit lyrics and brazen behavior both on and off stage, Cardi B has certainly made a name for herself in the world of music.

She hasn't fallen short of raising a few eyebrows.

Cardi has never been one to shy away from the spotlight and has often flaunted her assets in revealing and figure-hugging outfits both on and off the stage.

She even appeared as a regular cast member on the VH1 series Love & Hip Hop: New York from 2015 to 2017.

And, in usual Cardi B-style, the spoke candidly about her then-boyfriend who was banged up in jail, and of course, she chatted all things music too.

Cardi's outlandish behavior has only propelled her even further...

Cardi's crude lyrics and overall overwhelming stage presence certainly haven't stopped her from succeeding; they've done quite the opposite, in fact. Throughout her career, she has bagged herself a Grammy, 7 Billboard Awards, 3 MTV Music Awards and 2 Guinness World Record Awards. Not too shabby.

Because if you've got it...

Flaunt it, right?

You have to admire her confidence...

Part of Cardi's overall image is her sassy attitude. She's never afraid to speak her mind and is always open to experimenting with new and outlandish looks.

But Cardi took on the role of a lifetime in 2018...

She gave birth to her daughter, Kulture, who she shares with rapper Offset. Recently however, the star experienced some worrying health symptoms...

Cardi B is currently recovering from her trip to the ER.

The star said she had been suffering from extreme stomach pains for days.

The rapper revealed the problem.

She made the decision on Tuesday night to go to the ER, and that's no small decision during this pandemic. She said: "some real bad stomach problems for 4 days."

She posted a picture of her hospital bracelet.

Showing the date of hospitalization as March thirty-first. Cardi said the ER trip had her feeling much better, and that she hoped to be pain-free soon.

She deleted the tweet shortly after.

But the good news is the star is back to posting funny stuff on social media, so let's hope her social media presence reflects her current state of health.

Although it seems her condition was actually rather critical...

As she revealed on Twitter she had lost a shocking 5lbs in just 4 days. We just hope she's on the mend now!

And it certainly seems like she is.

After the rapper revealed a HUGE new back tattoo online.

She posted the image on Instagram.

It's quite the thirst trap - and reveals the huge tattoo, of what appears to be flowers, across the entirety of her back and butt.

It took months to complete.

The bright and colorful piece goes covers Cardi's entire backside, from the top of her back down to the middle of her thigh. According to TMZ, 'it's festooned with flowers, butterflies and even a hummingbird'.

It's so Cardi!
