Demi Lovato has memorialized her journey over the past year with a powerful tattoo. Located just below her neck, the new black-and-white tattoo illustrates a woman being lifted up by three doves. According to the artist, Alessandro Capozzi, the tattoo is also inspired by the spiritual concept of the Divine Feminine.
"We created this piece together to represent a rebirth of the spirit," Capozzi wrote on Instagram. "The dark wings represent the bad times, their fading away is how she moved forward. The light from within represents the inner strength necessary for the change and the doves, pulling her up, symbolize the reach of an higher state of consciousness." In her comment thanking Capozzi, Lovato said, "It's incredible and you are so extremely talented."
The meaningful tattoo is one of many Lovato has received since her hospitalization from an apparent overdose in July 2018. Following her recovery, she got the word "survivor" tattooed on her neck, as well as a rose on her index finger, the word "me" on her ring finger, a portrait of her great-grandmother on her forearm, and a "t" tattoo honoring her late friend Thomas Trussell.
