Demi Lovato amazes fans with huge ‘spider grandma’ tattoo on the side of their skull after debuting with a trendy new cut
DEMI Lovato stunned fans after revealing a sprawling “grandma spider” tattoo engraved on the side of their skull.
The Heart Attack singer, 29, showed off the new dramatic inking and symbolic meaning behind it on his Instagram page weeks after making his debut with his trendy haircut.
Demi, who relies on the they / them pronouns, took to their page as they sat in Dr. Woo’s tattooed chair.
One image captured them in a black leather jacket as he stood creating his design on the left side of their head.
Their hair had been shaved even shorter to allow access to the needle, which created a two-tone effect.
After Dr. Woo stamped the design, Demi turned her head to the side to fully show the huge insect image.
In the caption of the image, they called on their stylist to “please come and do my hair!”
Demi then reposted a dramatic black-and-white photo of the drawing their tattoo artist took, showing the scale of the inking.
In the next slide, the former Disney child star explained her tattoo choice, writing, “It’s the spider grandma who taught us a lot.
“She taught us pottery and weaving.
“She taught us about fire, light and darkness.
“She taught us that we are all connected to the web – each of us has our place in this world.”
Demi aptly ended her post with a black love heart Emoji and spider icon.
They recently liked one of Dr. Woo’s latest tattoo designs that saw a huge spider inked on the back of a man’s skull – stretching from the nape of the neck to the top of the head.
Many fans believed that was where Demi’s inspiration came from, with one comment: “We know 👀👀.”
Another questioned directly, “Was that your inspiration? 😅 ”while a third commented:“ @ddlovato loves you so much.
Demi recently revealed her trendy new haircut in a video posted on Christmas Eve.
Demi wore a casual tie-dye blue shirt in the clip which they paired with silver earrings.
They added a simple chain necklace and glamorous makeup to complete the look.
Demi captioned the clip with a series of smiley emojis.
It comes after Demi revealed they got “sober in California” in December after saying treating addiction was not a one-size-fits-all approach.
The pop singer said that after being sober for six years, they found it too difficult to continue down this path and would instead choose to eliminate only potentially deadly drugs.
At the time, Demi said they would only participate in occasional marijuana use and occasional alcohol use, sparking outrage from other celebrities who were recovering from drug addiction and / or alcohol.
Demi explained the reasons for the lifestyle change in an interview on CBS Sunday Morning earlier this year.
“I’ve learned that it doesn’t work for me to say I’ll never do this again,” Demi said in their docuseries, Dancing with the Devil. will kill them.
“Recovery is not a one-size-fits-all solution. You shouldn’t have to get sober if you’re not ready.
“You shouldn’t get sober for others. You should do it for yourself.”
Demi had a near-fatal fentanyl overdose in 2018.
After exploring a new approach earlier this year and becoming “California Sober,” Demi said they are no longer taking that approach.
Still, it was revealed this week that they had successfully completed a third stint in rehab at a Utah facility.
They have since returned home to Los Angeles and “are doing well,” a source told PageSix.
