At just 17, Billie Eilish has scored a number one album, endless magazine covers, and a legion of fans who love her unique style. Eilish at 17 has built a very loyal fan base because of which every song becomes a hit. It seems as if she went to bed as a regular 14-year-old and woke up as a famous singer.

The ocean eyes singer recently bagged 6 Grammynominations in different categories, which many established artists struggle to achieve.
The ocean eyes singer seems to be 'very different from what we have' as said by her fans and supporters. Her brother Finneas' O' Connel produces her music, giving Billie her own space to be creative.
Billie Eilish wholly owns her aesthetic, which seems to be heavily influenced by street style, logo-covered clothes, and lots of jewelry. It's evident she likes oversized shirts, rings, and layered necklaces. In a ‘Calvin Klein’ ad, the 'bad guy' singer reveals reason behind her signature baggy clothes.

Eilish says, "That's why I wear loose clothes, nobody can have an opinion because they haven't seen what's underneath. Nobody can be like, 'she's slim-thick,' 'she's not slim-thick,' 'she's got a flat ass,' 'she's got a fat ass.' No one can say any of that because they don't know."
We know Billie's love for oversized shirts, rings, and layered necklaces. But does her aesthetic also include tattoos?

We know the young star is only 17 years old; regardless of her fame and money being underage, she would need permission from her parents to get a tattoo in the US legally. In some states, you can't even get inked under 18, even with parental consent.
