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.”
I do kind of feel like I won the birthstone lottery by getting diamond (thank you April)! As my birthday month comes to a close, I’ve been reflecting on why these one-of-a-kind gemstones are so special to me. A few weeks ago, I posted about how my life choices to this point have woven the most exquisite path leading me to who I am in this very moment. I've always loved diamonds (who doesn’t?) and the journey of how they were created and how they are a symbol to celebrate all of life’s most important moments. My parents gave me this ring years ago for my birthday and every time I look down at it I’m reminded of how beautiful life is and how something so precious and authentic can symbolize my life’s journey up to this moment. This is #MyDiamondMoment. @RealisaDiamond #RealisRare #sponsored
