Another ex-Disney star, another set of young Hollywood ink. Demi Lovato unveiled her latest piece of bold and beautiful markings yesterday and we’re not talking about those new eyebrows either: a swooping flock of birds soaring across the skies of her forearm.
The new ink is flying over a tat the singer already got last year, the word “faith” in simple cursive. Hmm, looks like someone just read I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings this Thanksgiving weekend…
It’s Demi’s 13th tattoo, officially her largest, is inked by none other than “L.A. Ink” star and deadmau5 heartbreaker Kat Von D.
This permanent memento joins the ranks of the singer’s other separate tattoos that strung together read like the pins of your prototypical inspiration board on Pinterest: “Stay Strong” in calligraphy on her wrist, “Let Go & Let God” on her feet, “peace” and “rock n roll” on her fingers,” and “you make me beautiful” traced along her ribs,” and I don’t know where Demi Lovato ends and the Sharpie scrawled messages penned inside the pages of a high schooler’s yearbook begins anymore.
The youngest of the “X Factor” judging panel is known for her inspiring body art (see above). Following her trials with depression, an eating disorder, cutting, and subsequent rehab, all of Demi’s tattoos tie back to her dark past in some symbolic shape—turning a negative into something positive.
She has stated before that she regrets some of her earlier ink, but judging by her enthusiasm for these new birds, that doesn’t appear to be the case here.
“Thank you so much @thekatvond for my new ink!! I think it’s beautiful and I love it!!” she tweeted.
