The newly tattooed Vanessa Hudgens paid a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman to promote her new film Beastly. The less said about that atrocious movie, the better … so let’s move on. Vanessa was very excited to show off her new tattoo — a butterfly inked to the back of her neck — so, apparently, she chose to show it off on national television first for David Letterman.
[I]t seems Vanessa Hudgens is determined to leave her Disney past behind her, and reinvent herself as a ‘badass’. The 22-year-old actress started her reinvention with a butterfly tattoo on her neck, and last night revealed the inspiration behind the inking during an interview on the Late Show with David Letterman. She said: ‘It was very last minute, but I’ve actually wanted it for years. A butterfly landed on my mum’s stomach a week before I was born and that’s how I got my name, because Vanessa means butterfly – it’s a Latin derivative. ‘It’s my very first tattoo, and I kind of feel like a badass now!’
As I said before, I like the tattoo much more that it is colored in. Yes, it’s big but she seems to really love it so … good for her! I’m not the biggest Vanessa Hudgens fan but I think she is growing on me. Beastly looks wretched so I don’t think I can support her on that front … but as for the tattoo, yeah, I’m on board!
