EXCLUSIVE! Demi Lovato Reveals That One Of Her Tattoos Reminds Her Of A 'Dark Time' In Her Life!

Could Demi be talking about her split from Joe Jonas?

Demi Lovato is certainly trying to prove she’s not a child anymore!  In addition to her sexy new look, the Disney darling reveals that she’s got multiple tattoos and piercings — AND has been through a “dark time.”

“I already have tattoos and piercings. I have one [tattoo] behind my ear and one on my ribs. The other day I pierced my ear; I got my cartilage pierced,” the 18-year-old Camp Rock 2 starlet told HollywoodLife.com exclusively during a phone  chat. “It’s not that cool or whatever but I decided I really wanted to do it, so it was the first time I didn’t need anybody there like a parent. But I want more [tattoos] and I’m excited to be able to just like call a friend and be like, ‘I want a tattoo, let’s go.'”

But what does all this body art MEAN to the seemingly sweet young actress — and what, exactly, does she have imprinted on her body forever and ever? “I have a feather behind my ear, and it honestly doesn’t mean anything. I just think it’s cute. It’s a light blue feather, but it looks more like a leaf, so I gotta fix it,” she said, before adding, “I have a side piece that says ‘You Make Me Beautiful’ and it’s a song by Bethany Dillon. The words were so encouraging and lifted me through a really dark time in my life. It’s kind of a Christian tattoo, so for me it’s religious, but it could be for anybody.”

Dark time, eh? Could Demi be talking about her split from ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas? The former BFFs broke up in May of this year after only two months of dating; he started dating Twilight star Ashley Greene soon after and even brought her on tour with he and Demi! Ouch.

Perhaps that’s why Demi is changing things up! In addition to her tattoos and piercings, she’s been dressing sexier — just check out the LBD she wore onstage at the Shoreline  Amphitheatre in Mountain View, Calif. Sept. 18 and you be the judge!

Although we’re guessing there’s another reason behind her new look, Demi denies it. “No, I’m just changing it because I’m getting older and I feel more comfortable in things that make me feel more confident!”

I believe that she does not understand the Christian religion. If she did, she would not be getting tattoos to help encourage her! She needs a relationship with God! Celebs get lost when they enter the lime light and don’t know how to handle it!

It’s not…it’s about when she was a young teen and was struggling with her weight and bullying. She also was cutting herself when she was fourteen, and so the years from twelve to fifteen were her dark years. That also has contributed to her recent stint in rehab. She has seeken treatment a couple years ago for anger management and therapy to help deal with the grief of her years when she was bullied. I know this for a fact, and you can’t always hear whats on the internet.

Her “you make me beautiful” tattoo is about a dark time in her life. But it’s really not about Joe.
If you’re a true fan you know that she was bullied severely in middle school. It’s related to that.

Obviously she’s referring to the time when she was bullied and didn’t have a lot of friends… She talked about the song’s significance to her long before she even dated Joe.

But of course you had to SOMEHOW make it to be about Joe to get people’s attention. : )
