And Demi Lovato has now opened up about its meaning, after going ‘dark’ on social media ahead of her Grammy and Super Bowl performances.
The 27-year-old singer shared that it symbolized ‘the spiritual awakening’ that she was feeling in the moment.
‘I recently went dark on social media in preparation for my Grammy and Super Bowl performances but while I was off socials I got this incredibly meaningful tattoo done by @alessandro_capozzi,’ she began the lengthy post.
‘Getting tatted by him was an experience I’ve never had before.. no idea what I was going to get done, I told him about my life and where I was at in that moment and we created a combination on images that best symbolized the spiritual awakening I was having.’
She continued: ‘Having a fallen angel being lifted by 3, pure, angelic doves (the Holy trinity) as her inner light is being guided by a higher consciousness, and the disintegration of her dark wings was representing the darkness I was shedding.’
Demi went on to thank her tattoo artist, Alessandro Capozzi.
‘Alessandro – you are extremely talented and I can’t wait for more!! Thank you for this special experience.. the only bummer is I can’t physically see this amazing artwork because it’s on my back! Haha.’
‘Also shout out to @scooterbraun for introducing us! ps. I still can’t believe how life like this looks and it healed amazing as well.’
Demi met Alessandro at Ariana Grande’s concert in Los Angeles. Scooter is both their managers.
The session took place at Alessandro’s private studio in downtown L.A. and took between noon and 8:00 pm to create, it was reported at the time.
He shared the final result on Instagram after they worked on the design together.
‘“Divine Feminine” ✨ Destruction Effect,’ he explained on the social media platform.
‘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.’
He continued: ‘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.’
And despite having had sworn of social media until she releases new music at the time, she responded: ‘Thank you so much it’s incredible and you are so extremely talented.’
The special and significant tattoo comes after a big 2019 for the former Disney star.
Demi celebrated her one-year sobriety anniversary, got baptized in Israel in the Jordan river and split from her boyfriend, Austin Wilson just before she got the tattoo.
Late December also saw her commission Dr Woo for a neck tattoo that reads: ‘survivor.’
