Demi’s first tattoo was revealed in June 2010, 2 months before the Disney star’s 18th birthday. However Demi stated in an interview that she got the tattoo when she was 16 — how did no one notice it?! 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. 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 first heard the song when she was 13 years old and it changed her outlook on life. She connected with the song because she has dealt with eating disorders, self-harm and low self-esteem for many years. Demi had the uplifting words inscribed in a time when she was still struggling, before receiving treatment. This tattoo is very rarely seen so it seems that Demi got it mostly as a reminder to herself. She told MTV:
It’s one of my favorite 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.
Demi later added a pair of feathers to the piece which were first shown off in September 2011, though it is not known precisely when they were actually added.
Demi Lovato has a turquoise feather behind her left ear which is just for fun. In an interview with Hollywood Life she revealed that the feather 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 newest tattoo is also her largest. She added a flock of flying birds on her right forearm surrounding her “faith” tattoo in November 2012.
There are twelve black birds with a little swirl behind them. The tattoo was done by celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D.
