Demi Lovato just debuted a new, very cool tattoo on their freshly-shaved head.
The singer unveiled the ink on Instagram Saturday, January 8. It’s a spider tattoo, placed on the side of Lovato’s head. Check it out for yourself, below.
Lovato then added a quote card to their Instagram Story that may explain the tattoo’s inspiration: “It was Grandmother Spider who taught us many things. She taught us about pottery and weaving. She taught us about fire and light and dark. She taught us that we are all connected on the web-each one of us having our place in this world.”
Demi Lovato came out as gender non-binary in May 2021 and announced they’d be using they/them pronouns going forward. “Every day we wake up, we are given another opportunity and chance to be who we want and wish to be,” Lovato wrote on Instagram. “I’ve spent the majority of my life growing in front of all of you… you’ve seen the good, the bad, and everything in between.”
They continued, “Not only has my life been a journey for myself, I was also living for those on the other side of the cameras. Today is a day I’m so happy to share more of my life with you all—I am proud to let you know that I identify as non-binary and will officially be changing my pronouns to they/them moving forward.”
Lovato added, “This has come after a lot of healing and self-reflective work. I’m still learning and coming into myself, and I don’t claim to be an expert or a spokesperson. Sharing this with you now opens another level of vulnerability for me. I’m doing this for those out there that haven’t been able to share who they truly are with their loved ones. Please keep living in your truths and know I am sending so much love your way xox.”
