On Thursday we got our first look at the new butterfly tattoo that Vanessa Hudgens got inked onto the back of her neck. Today we get to see a few more photos of Vanessa getting her tattoo and of the tattoo itself. I gotta say, I like the tat much more based on these photos. While I still personally think it’s a bit large, I love the tattoo itself.
It was quite literally a pain in the neck, but Vanessa Hudgens didn’t let the agony show as she got her first tattoo this week. Pictures have emerged showing the 22-year-old getting inked by Rihanna’s favourite tattoo artist, Bang Bang. While she first gave a glimpse of her tattoo on Twitter, the final full colour version has now been unveiled. New York based Bang Bang later said: ‘Vanessa told me it was an exhilarating experience. She loves this tattoo and was a dream to work with.’ Clasping what appears to be a beer in one hand, Hudgens grinned as he filled in the outline of the freshly drawn butterfly tattoo. Vanessa, who split from her High School Musical co-star Zac Efron in December, decided to get a tattoo after a dinner in Manhattan with Australian band The Veronicas and their friend, Ruby Rose. Model and DJ Ruby, 24, accompanied Hudgens to the tattoo parlour, East Side Ink.
Oh yeah, the tattoo looks much better with color. Bang Bang is a very talented tattoo artist, this butterfly is beautiful. It looks like Vanessa is really happy with her piece of body art … at least, I hope she is. What do you think?
