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

Wow you guys really are sad. Shes done an amazing thinig for her fans and FYI most of her fans are over 11. Demi has been through so much and all her fans have been there for her the whole time. Her doing something like this is an amazing gesture. Her fans appreciate her and no one cares what haters think because they aren’t worth thinking about

I’m just glad she is getting better. She is not hurting anybody getting the tats. This is obviously part of her healing. So, I just wish her the best. I am not what you call a fan, but
I’d rather watch her than Miley Cyrus.
I hope that Demi continues to move forward with her life and not end up like other young celebrity
stars that didn’t. Prayers to you, girl!!!

Who is she?
People should at least say why she’s a starlet.

Please don’t thank my 8 year old by showing her your new tattoo.

I think she looks great. It’s called healthy, Heather, not fat. Why must you think she’s fat just because she is not a stick? You are not a nice person at all Heather. Anyway….I think she looks great and am glad she is doing better. For Tammy…not all of her fans are 11 year olds. And what does it matter if she got tattoo’s or not? I think they look great and it’s not like they are a bad thing. Self expression not ok in your house??? And last bout not least to Anna…GAG right back at ya. Leave the kid alone. I am not a big fan either but I think it’s great that she is doing better and is back out there. She has a good voice and seems to be a very sweet kid. At least she realized she had issues and took care of them instead of turning into another Lindsey Lohan!

I am so proud that she took the initative to say I need help and get the help! She stuck with her treatment without leaving 30 days in like most celebs. STAY STRONG Demi!!!! <3

Yeah, that’s great that she took care of the problem now before it got out of hand. Go Demi! I think the tattoos are a nice gester. They aren’t as big of a deal as they used to be. This is 2011

Tattoos? Yet another sign that the girl is still screwed up. Whether it’s knife cuts or skin ink, they are the same physical deformities that signal low-self esteem and a cry for help. Why do you think so many strippers have tattoos?

Sorry Demi, but why don’t you start out by apologizing to those you hurt. Don’t act so innocent. I know behind that “sweet” face is a dark person. I’m glad you went to therapy and I hope you did learn something. But you learned nothing if you didn’t start by apologizing to those you hurt because you were once hurt.

They are probably to cover cut marks. Hope she doesn’t end up another Lohan. It’s a slippery slope. It’ll be a lot of work to stay grounded & sane in her chosen profession. Hope she has the family and true friend support she needs.
