In 2016, during his stay in Mexico AB Quintanilla took to his Instagram handle to flaunt his 3 tattoos. The first tattoo he flaunted is curved on his face. It is a figure with a tint of alien style to it. His second tattoo is a K on one of his fingers.

He founded the Kumbia Kings then so it was believed that the initial K was dedicated to his band. The third one is really amazing! We adored the fact that he inked his sister Selena’s name on his head. It was indeed an eye-catching method of honoring his late sister.
