Demi Lovato may have more than 15 tattoos but her latest tat is her "most meaningful."
Early Thursday morning (May 16), the 26-year-old singer debuted a black-and-white full body portrait tattoo of her great-grandmother, who passed away in 2016 at the age of 93.
"This is for you Mimaw," she captioned an Instagram photo of her showing off her new ink, which showed her great-grandmother smiling in a 1940s-style white dress with a cinched waist, on Demi's left forearm. "You at 26 on my arm while I’m 26, and forever. I love you more. ❤️ Thank you @_dr_woo_ for making her come back to life for me.. it’s stunning and the most meaningful tattoo I have ever gotten. 🙏🏼🙌🏼."
Demi and her Mimaw were extremely close. When she passed back in 2016, Demi wrote a heartfelt Instagram post about her, calling her the "world's most special woman."
"I miss her more than words can even describe," she captioned a photo of her in bed with Mimaw. "There is an emptiness in my heart that only her spirit can fill and I pray that I will feel her by my side every single day until we meet again. I attribute my strength to her."
"She was my great-grandmother but we were so close that I never knew it was possible that anyone could have the bond that we shared even 70 years a part," Demi continued. "The pain I feel is almost unbearable but because of her strength I will power through it. The love and support I have received has been empowering and so special to me.. I love all of you so much and I am forever grateful for the prayers, texts and fan art my Lovatics have made me. Thank you. Mimaw, I hope you are with Papa now.. I hate that I can't hear your voice but I love that you are no longer in pain. I love you so much and I miss you more than anyone could ever imagine. I'll miss your smile, your wittiness, painting your nails and your kisses. I really do love you more. Rest in peace and most importantly rest in the Lord. #RIPMimaw"
