Demi Lovato‘s had an amazing year so far. After taking some off to seek treatment following her 2018 overdose, she returned to the spotlight recently to perform new music at the Grammys and sing a powerful rendition of the national anthem at this year’s Super Bowl.
So, how does one mark such a pivotal moment in life? With a tattoo, of course. Lovato returned to social media after a brief hiatus to show off her latest ink and explain its special significance. “I recently went dark on social media in preparation for my Grammy and Super Bowl performances but while I was off socials I got this incredibly meaningful tattoo done by @alessandro_capozzi,” she wrote on Instagram. “Getting tatted by him was an experience I’ve never had before.. no idea what I was going to get done, I told him about my life and where I was at in that moment and we created a combination on images that best symbolized the spiritual awakening I was having.”
She then went on to describe the design on her upper back, just below her neck, which you can see in the photos.
“Having a fallen angel being lifted by 3, pure, angelic doves (the Holy trinity) as her inner light is being guided by a higher consciousness, and the disintegration of her dark wings was representing the darkness I was shedding,” Lovato continued. “Alessandro – you are extremely talented and I can’t wait for more!! Thank you for this special experience.. the only bummer is I can’t physically see this amazing artwork because it’s on my back! Haha. Also shout out to @scooterbraun for introducing us! 🖤🕊💉 ps. I still can’t believe how life like this looks and it healed amazing as well 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼”
She’s right—the tattoo does look incredibly life-like. Let’s hope Demi Lovato only continues to rise like the angel on her back.
