Demi Lovato is inked for war.
The “Heart Attack” singer shared her latest addition to her body art collection on Wednesday, the same day she dropped her self-titled fourth album, Demi. Lovato shared an over-the-shoulder snap of the still-fresh tattoo, revealing the words “now I’m a warrior” scribed on her left shoulder blade.
“Thanks @BangBang!” she tweeted, shouting out her tattoo artist, Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy, whose work lives on the skin of Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne. “Album release day!!! #DEMI”
The tat is a reference to “Warrior,” one of the more revealing songs on Lovato’s new 13-track collection, which pulls back the curtain on the former Disney darling’s personal life and relationships. The ditty goes a little something like this, according to Directlyrics:
“Now I’m a warrior/ Now I’ve got thicker skin
I’m a warrior/ I’m stronger than ive ever been
And my armor, is made of steel, you cant get in
I’m a warrior/ And you can never hurt me again”
But the shoulder art is surely not Lovato’s first foray under the needle. The X Factor judge has many bits of ink scattered across her body, from the words “Stay” and “Strong” adorning her wrists, to a flock of birds flying up her arm, to “Let go” and “Let God” written on her feet.
