Lindsay Lohan's Tattoos
The story of Lindsay Lohan's tattoos starts with her first piece of body art, a small tattoo of a star on her forearm. The tattoo is a tiny outlined star in black.
Her second tattoo has more meaning. The Italian phrase "la bella vita" is scripted on her lower backwith a little flourish. This simple, black ink tattoo means "life is beautiful" and Lindsay intended the tattoo to be a dedication to and remembrance of her Italian grandfather. Lindsay said that this tattoo hurt so little that she was able to eat ice cream while she was getting inked.
Lohan's latest tattoo is another saying, or word - "breathe". It is written in script on the inside of her right wrist. She planned to get the tattoo for a while, reportedly having been inspired by the John Lennon quote: "Get out there and get peace, think peace, live peace, and breathe peace, and you'll get it as soon as you like." Lohan also says that the tattoo is a reminder of how important life is after she suffered a dangerous asthma attack on New Year's Eve '05.
