The Twilight actress, 23, chose to have her new inking done at the Pride & Glory tattoo parlour during a pit-stop in Nashville, Tennessee, with her friends and happily posed for a couple of pictures afterwards with the tattoo team.
In the snaps, Kristen can be seen dressed in her usual low-key look, sporting a loose fitting cropped T-shirt, jeans and a baseball cap.
She also appears to be holding up her arm (or perhaps pointing to her elbow?!), which has led a number of people to assume that the star's debut piece of body art is on her wrist. However, we are unable to see what the tattoo depicts.
And it sounds like Kristen wants to keep us in suspense, as the tattoo parlour then uploaded their pictures with the award-winning actress on Facebook and Instagram, but admitted that she'd told them to keep her design "hush hush".
The brunette A-lister is currently spending time with her pals in the Southern States and was even spotted dining out at Hooters in Texas recently.
No doubt Kristen is trying to keep herself distracted and have some fun now that she's reported to have split up with on-off boyfriend and Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson.
R-Patz reportedly ended his romance with Kristen (again!) in May, after he was spotted leaving her house with packed suitcases.
