Demi Lovato’s beautiful tattoos
"You make me beautiful" and feathers: "It’s one of my favourite songs ever. I got it because I was dealing with self-image issues. So I got it tattooed on me to look in the mirror every day and remind myself that I am beautiful. The words were so encouraging and lifted me through a really dark time in my life. It’s kind of a Christian tattoo, so for me, it’s religious, but it could be for anybody."
"Stay Strong", love heart and kiss mark: "The message is for me. It says "Stay Strong." So every day, no matter if I’m putting on my shoes or my make up, I see it everyday, to stay strong. It was very symbolic for me to be able to cover up my scars and also replace it with something else that’s permanent so that I’ll never be able to forget the support that I had when I went in to treatment."
"The journey that I went through and the support of my fans was so meaningful to me that I wanted to thank my fans in a way that I know can never be forgotten. So I went ahead and I got a little heart tattoo on my wrist. Together they say "Stay Strong" but this one has a heart, which is something my fans actually were drawing on their wrists while I was still in treatment, and some people even got tattoos of it. So I wanted to show you guys that I will never forget the support you guys gave me. And I will look at it everyday and remember you guys and be completely thankful for you."
"I got like a kiss mark, and it’s just like a friendship tattoo and also it kinda reminds me not to take myself too seriously. I got like a fun tattoo rather than all these ones that are so serious."
"faith" and flock of birds: A matching tattoo with her friend, whom she met in treatment. “I think it’s beautiful. I love it!”
Cross on hand: Demi told Ryan Seacrest that she got this tattoo because she is a devout Christian and wants her fans to see it clearly every time she holds up her microphone.
Feather behind ear: "I have feather behind my ear, and it honestly doesn’t mean anything. I just think it’s cute. It’s a light blue feather, but it looks more like a leaf, so I gotta fix it." Demi got this tattoo on the back of a bus at Warped Tour.
"Let go and let God": "It’s kinda my favourite life motto. Sometimes life can get so hard that you don’t really know what to do and you just gotta be like ‘Okay, take it from here cause I don’t know what I’m doing.’ to the man upstairs."
"Now I’m a warrior": "I have a song on my album called "Warrior" and it’s a very, very meaningful song to me. It’s really heavy, the lyrics, but it’s an inspirational song as well. It’s a negative thing turned positive. And I’ve been through a lot and I’m really honest on this album. This was a song that was very difficult for me to write, record and release. It was kinda like a tribute to releasing an album, as well as overcoming some really, really difficult things in my life."
