- Everyone always seems to wonder about Dolly Parton's tattoos.
- The “Jolene” singer admitted that she is hiding a few, and gave an interesting explanation as to why she got them.
Here we come again with yet another reason to love Dolly Parton.
For years, people speculated that Dolly was covered in tattoos and often wore long-sleeve dresses or tops to keep them covered. The CMAs host has already admitted there is some truth to these particular rumors, but now we’re learning a bit more about why she got them in the first place.
“I got them to cover scars or things,” Dolly said on Good Morning America. “If I have to get a scar for any reason, I never can get rid of that purple look. So I thought, ‘Well, I’m going to kind of decorate these with some flowers or little butterflies or whatever.”
Can you think of anything more fitting for Dolly? We don’t think so!
Jay Leno was actually one of the first to get Dolly to spill on her hidden ink in the late '90s when she admitted to having an angel and a butterfly. But the full explanation about her scarring first went to Larry King, according to Inked.
Though she wasn’t embarrassed about the designs, she made sure to say, “I splattered them here and there, but I wouldn’t be a biker chick or anything!”
Dolly’s always full of surprises, and we’ll definitely keep an eye out for her tattoos when we watch her Netflix special, Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, and the CMAs. Even if we don’t spot them, an evening with Dolly is an evening well spent!
