Leigh-Anne Pinnock has two tattoos which are both located on her back. First she got the word “Believe” on the back of her neck.
In March 2013 she added a large tattoo spanning from the center of her back onto her right shoulder blade. The design is of sheet music with a treble clef on the left side and four butterflies which get progressively larger in size from left to right.
Leigh-Anne had the design drawn up by her good friend Hannah Lisa, who is a Fine Art student at Arts University Bournemouth. “Inked again mixers.. Designed by my beautiful bestie @hannahlisab :) thanks chick i love it!” Leigh-Anne tweeted.
The tattoo seems to have been quite painful. “A lot of squealing but we got through it and it turned out beautifully,” Hannah tweeted. Another friend responded “a little squealing? That’s an understatement, I was covering my ears lol.”
Leigh-Anne has not spoken about the meaning of the tattoo, but it is possible that it was inspired by Little Mix’s single “Wings,” with four butterflies for the four members of the group. The song contains the line “Mama told me not to waste my life, she said spread your wings my little butterfly.” (more…)
