Kaitlyn Bristowe shows off 'beautiful' new minimalist tattoo: 'Obsessed with this!'

The Canadian "Bachelor" star's new tattoo is a Buddhist symbol that represents one's life journey.

Kaitlyn Bristowe has new ink.

On Wednesday, the 37-year-old "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" star took to Instagram to share a set of makeup-free photos while showing off her newest tattoo, a unalome symbol on her right forearm.

In the first snap, the Leduc, Alta.-native posed in a pair of light blue ripped jeans and a black crewneck sweater, pointing at her tattoo. In the second, she stood next to the tattoo artist, JonBoy — a Hollywood go-to for minimalist designs.

"I put this tattoo on the inside of my arm because I wanted to be able to see it. Unalome. A symbol for the journey to enlightenment," Bristowe captioned the post for her more than 1.9 million followers. "I love this ride that I'm on. I will always look at it and know the path isn't always straight or perfect, but beautiful lessons will always be learned."

Fans met Bristowe's photos with praise for her stunning tattoo choice.

"Gorgeous! I had never seen this symbol before. I love the meaning behind it," one Instagram user commented, while another echoed, "Love this and the meaning behind it."

"Turned out beautiful!" someone else wrote.

"Perfectly placed! I love it and its meaning!" a fan shared.

"Great choice," another chimed in. "It's beautiful just like you."

One person penned: "Absolutely love it! It suits you!"

On Tuesday, the Canadian reality TV star shared a stencil of the symbol and its definition with her followers, asking them where she should have the tattoo placed.

"The Unalome is a symbol for the journey to enlightenment. I personally love this symbol, as it reminds us that the path isn't always straight," the photo's on-screen text reads.

"Help! Where on my bod should I tattoo this? Back or arm. It will be very dainty and fine lines. From the one and only [JonBoy]," Bristowse added in her caption.

In November, fans applauded Bristowe for embracing her Canadian roots after she shared a carousel of photos posing in a denim-clad outfit.

The "Dancing with the Stars" winner paired a denim body con dress and a matching choker necklace with natural makeup, while wearing her hair in a half-up half-down style.

"A Canadian tuxedo party? Jeanious," the "Off The Vine" podcast host cleverly captioned her post.

"First of all, you look amazing! I love that dress on you. A Canadian tuxedo has never looked so good! Secondly, I'm living for this caption. Hilarious!" one fan commented. "You are the queen of puns!"

"Yes, Canadian queen," added another.

"Full outfit envy," one person wrote.

"This is actually jeanious though!" a fan added, while another wrote, "I forgot how good you are at punny captions."
