Demi Lovato loves to live what she preaches. The talented artist uses permanent ink to remind herself and her fans of the incredible strength she possesses. Living in the spotlight means scrutiny at all times, and Demi hasn’t had the easiest time dealing with the fame.

She actively reminds those around her that sobriety is her number one priority. She openly spoke about her mental health issues in the past, her struggles with drugs and her eating disorder. The girl had a lot to deal with, but it’s not slowing her down. She’s determined to keep fighting for her health and wellbeing, and the latest tattoo seems to be yet another reminder.

While Demi hasn’t publicly commented on her new ink, her tattooist, Alessandro Capozzi, took to Instagram to share the inspiration behind the cool 3D angel on the star’s upper back. “We created this piece together to represent a rebirth of the spirit. The dark wings represent the bad times, their fading away is how she moved forward,” Capozzi commented in the photo.

“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. Congratulations on your inspiring journey Demi, honored to have represented this for you.”

Demi responded to his post with, “Thank you so much 🙌🏼 it’s incredible and you are so extremely talented 😊💕” The singer often shares how grateful she is for her journey, despite the hard times. We stand with you, Demi. This is a beautiful reminder of the journey!
