Demi Lovato's New Tattoo Inspired By Her Fans

Vodpod videos no longer available.

She’s already thanked her fans for their support, and recently, Demi Lovato took her gratitude a step further. In a video posted to Tuesday, the 18-year-old unveils her new tattoos, one on her left wrist which reads “Stay” and another on the right that says “Strong,” plus a tiny heart that represents the love of her supporters. “I wanted to thank my fans in a way I know can never be forgotten,” she explains, adding that while she was receiving treatment for “emotional and physical issues” last year, many of her admirers drew (and even tattooed!) hearts on their own wrists in solidarity. “I wanted to show you guys that I will never forget the support that you … gave me, and I will look at it every day and remember you … and be completely thankful for you. Just thought you guys should know that. I love you.” The starlet also returned to Twitter Tuesday night, sending her first message since October. “Guess who’s baaaaaaaack…!!!!!!!” she wrote. “I love you guys SO MUCH… this support is UNBELIEVABLE!! I’m tearing up I’m so thankful…” Fans reciprocated, Tweeting, “#welcomebackdemi.” —Kate Hogan

i cant beleive people are so shallow and still hating on her. no one understands how rough her journey truly was but her. if shw wants to show her 11 year old fans or however old they are by getting a tattoo, she can do that. it’s NOT like they will go and get one themselves. some people try to pick out the littlest things out of people to try and hate on them. no shut up you just are making a complete fool of yourself. her stay strong tattoo has a lot more meaning behind it that just for her fans. it keeps her from doing ehat she did in her past, and to me that is so beautiful and SO strong on her part. i love demi. look how beautiful she is and i am so happy for her that she can finally break through and find happiness for herself. you go girl.

Why do you guys have to hate on Demi. Jennifer, Demi is not a cutter, that one picture there is out there, made it look like she is a cutter but it only looked like that because she was wearing tight plastic bracelets. All Demi haters out there you gotta lighten up.

I’m 14 and I understand that people make mistakes. I have always been a fan of Demi(: To me the worst move she made was going on Disney Channel, because you have to be perfect on there not to mess up! Everyone falls sometimes. But Demi got back on her feet no matter how many cruel people are out there she will prove them wrong! Maybe you need to step in Demi’s shoes for a while. Stay Strong Demi , I Love You! -Your #1 Fan Kami<3

No hate on

All these hateful remarks are so sad to see, be thankful you haven’t gone through what she has. She’s so amazingly gorgeous and seems so genuinely sweet. How in the world do you judge someone you have never met or have never personally known? kudos to you for being jerks (really wishing I could use a different word).

I would go through every comment and then give my opinion but really it isn’t worth it. I will just say this, she’s gotten the tattoos to let her fans know how much their support in such a rough time of her life meant to her. If you weren’t so hateful and went to any of her concerts or watched anything involving her you would see that while yes she has little kids as fans, she also has young teens and even adults that adore her too. How does getting tattoos and going to a treatment center now make you a role model? I would rather see people look up to her as an example, knowing that while she’s made mistakes, she’s admitted she needed professional help and has gotten it.

Unless you have known her personally or have gone through any of what she has gone through you have no right to judge. Even if you have there is still no room for judgement. People in not just Hollywood, but in this world in general demand such perfection, and sometimes us as humans get swept up in that “perfection”. And if we don’t end up living up to that “perfection” and people see us maturing and becoming more of an adult, an adult who have our own flaws, imperfections, then it’s an even bigger target for us as humans to generate more hate.

All I know is I love and respect Demi Lovatao and wish her nothing but the best.
