Demi Lovato has a tattoo of red lips on left wrist 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. The tattoo is of Ivey’s lips.
This playful tattoo stands in contrast to some of Demi’s other ink with much more serious meanings. She told Hollywood Life “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 other ones that are so serious.”
You would have thought that having her feather ear tattoo turn out poorly would have taught Demi a lesson about getting tattoos in non-professional environments, but apparently it did not. She told MTV “It was also on Warped Tour. In a tour bus. Another one, different year,” while grimacing. In another interview, she said “It was just a spur of the moment stupid decision.”
Demi Lovato has come to hate this tattoo and joked that it looks like a vagina. Those comments upset tattoo artist Ashley McMullen, who claimed that Demi was drunk and rude when she got the tattoo, didn’t pay for it, and didn’t give Ashley any publicity. She put the blame for the bad tattoo on Demi, saying she gave Demi what she “specifically asked for…it is not my fault you wanted a pair of red lips on your wrist next to your upside down tattoo.”
She finally had the tattoo covered with a rose in April 2015. (more…)
