This is a big "OOOOOOOH! You're right! I didn't even notice!" moment.
At Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, Lady Gaga collected her first acting award and gave a touching speech and maybe scared Leonardo DiCaprio and looked like the human personification of "YAAAAAAS."

So, how did Gaga cover up her ink? She enlisted professional makeup artist Mike Mekash, who works on American Horror Story as well as on movies like Mad Max: Fury Road.
Mekash revealed that he used PAX (an acrylic adhesive based makeup) and skin illustrators to complete the job, and he said on Facebook, "The covers I did looked great on the red carpet and on stage when she WON! And for 99% of the press photos." As for the why? You'd have to ask Gaga.
