On May 13, Chris Rock shared on the show Live with Kelly and Ryan that he got his first tattoo at age 55 with his eldest daughter, Lola.
The two decided to get a tattoo a crown in honor of the infamous artist, [Jean-Michel] Basquiat.
“I got a tattoo with my daughter,” Rock said.
“My daughter turned 18. She wanted a tattoo, and she said, ‘I want you to come with me because I may go crazy. So if you come with me, I’ll be sane, and I want you to get one, too.’ So we both got the [Jean-Michel] Basquiat tattoo, we got like the Basquiat crowns,” he added.
The actor expressed his feelings about his daughters growing up.
“It’s crazy!” he said.
“Lola’s out the house. Lola goes to school in Paris. She’s studying to be a documentary filmmaker, which means I’m going to be lending her lots of money. And Zahra’s almost a senior. So Zahra’s got one more year, then she’s out the house. Then I’m free!”

The father of two then talked about what life will look like when his daughters move away.
“I already told Zahra, I said, when you go to college, you’re going to get one holiday where I’m actually here. I’ll be here Thanksgiving, but Christmas? I could be anywhere. You’re going to knock on the door. It’s going to be a new family. Like when Dan Aykroyd came back to his house in Trading Places. Like, who are you?”
The “Spiral” star’s daughters are born from his nearly 20-year marriage to Malaak Compton-Rock, according to Essence.
The two married in 1996 and filed for divorce in 2014. The divorce was final in 2016, and Rock now owns a home near his ex-wife to live in close quarters to their daughters.
