Lucy Hale and her older sister Maggie got matching tattoos in memory of their late grandmother. The sisters both inked “I love you” on their right forearm in their grandmother’s own handwriting. Lucy showed off the matching tatts on her instagram and wrote:
Nothing says sisterly bonding more than permanently tattooing your body. After years of wanting our grandmothers writing, we did it! Our Grammy was our favorite person & now she’s even more a part of us. Also, my sister is a badass who raises two kids, teaches combat classes AND goes on tattoo runs with her baby sister. Also, ouch. This one hurt.
Lucy’s grandmother is still a major part of her life even after she passed away. She attempted to connect with her grandma on an episode of E!’s Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry and said:
I definitely felt like I was with her today, but then again I always feel close to her…I definitely always feel her presence.
Me and my sister talk about it all the time that we wish she could be here to see what I’ve done. I don’t think many people thought in my family that [my career] would be what it is, but I always think that she did.
This tattoo, which they got in July 2018, is actually the second tattoo that Lucy and her sister got together to honor their grandmother. She already had a sun on her upper back.
