Demi Lovato has tattoos on both of her wrists, on her hand, on her ribcage, and behind her ear. Demi’s first tattoo was revealed in June 2010, 2 months before the Disney star’s 18th birthday. The tattoo is of the words “you make me beautiful” written on the right side of her ribs. The phrase comes from the song “Beautiful” by Bethany Dillon; a song which Demi claims changed her life. Demilater added a pair of feathers to the piece. When asked about it’s meaning, she explained: “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”.
Demi Lovato’s second “Stay Strong” wrist tattoos much more well known to the public are Demi Lovato’s “Stay Strong” tattoos on her wrists. Demi added these tattoosin March 2011 shortly after she spent nearly three months in rehab treating her issues with cutting and bulimia, with which she had struggled for many years. The tattoos remind her to think positively. The message is for me. It says “Stay Strong.” So every day no matter if I’m putting on my shoes or putting on my makeup, I see it every day, to stay strong.
On her left wrist is the word “Stay” in a cursive font and on her right wrist is the word “Strong” with a heart which Demi says that she got “In honor of my fans and their support.” Also on Demi’s left wrist is a tattoo of red lips which she got in July 2011 as a matching tattoo with friends Hanna Beth Merjos, Ivey Ensley and Lauren Pietra. Ivey and Hanna Beth had the kiss placed on their collarbones.
Demi Lovato’s feather tattoo behind her ear. Demi Lovato’s other just-for-fun tattoo is the turquoise feather behind her left ear. Demi first discussed the tattoo in a September 2010 interview with Hollywood Life, where she revealed that it has no personal meaning and is simply something that she likes. She says: “I have a 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 Lovato’s cross tattoo on her hand. In June 2011 Demi had a black cross tattooed on the side of her right hand below her pinkie finger. This tattoo is an obvious nod to her Christian faith. She told Ryan Secrets that she got this tattoo because she is a devout Christianand wants her fans to see it clearly every time she holds up a microphone.
