New hot bod, new tattoo!
While some might mark a dramatic weight loss with a fresh wardrobe, Jordin Sparks is celebrating her sexy slimmed-down figure with new ink!
The American Idol alum posted a pic of her new tattoo located on her right side to her website on Saturday.
"New tat on my rib cage...'Respira' I love it. :)" the 21-year-old songstress wrote. "Respira'= Breathe. It's for my time on ITH, the people I met there & a reminder to take a moment when things get crazy. <3." (Sparks starred as Nina Rosario in Broadway's In the Heights during fall 2010.)
But in addition to debuting her seventh tattoo in the self-taken pic, the "Battlefield" singer also showed off her slimmer waist, a result of her weight-loss regimen that she kicked off earlier this spring.
"Instead of just talking about being active, I made it a priority," she told Ryan Seacrest during a May interview. It was one of those things where I was turning 21 and New Year's was coming. It was like I'm not going to start my resolution on New Year's Day -- I'm going to try to start it early and just stick to it."
