Shay Mitchell has at least 4 known tattoos:
The six leading cast members from the TV show Pretty Little Liars celebrated their final day of filming on October 28th 2016 by getting matching tattoos of their characters’ initials. They chose their index fingers for the matching ink because of the shhhh that they all make in PLL’s opening credits to show that they are hiding secrets. Shay Mitchell got a lowercase “e.” for her character’s name Emily Fields.
In a snapchat video, Ashley Benson asks if she’s scared to get the tattoo, to which she responded “Yeah I am. It’s exposed. I have one [tattoo] and it’s white.” Shay’s white ink infinity wrist tattoo is barely noticeable, making this her first “real” tattoo. Ashley on the other hand has lots of tiny tattoos.
In fact Shay was so scared of the pain that she didn’t even want the tattoo at first, and had to be convinced by the other girls. She told Refinery 29:
“I didn’t want to be a part of this at all! I don’t understand what’s wrong with Henna, why can’t we get something like that? Not because of the permanent factor, but because of it’s painful. And on your finger, it’s even more painful! So, I mean, I ended up doing it, I just held onto everybody’s hands and was sweating profusely. But, I made it.”
