In the January issue of ‘Glamour’ magazine, Demi opens up about tattoos she has on her wrists that cover up the scars she has from cutting herself.

“I think the scars are like battle wounds — beautiful, in a way,” Demi Lovato tells Glamour. “They show what you’ve been through and how strong you are for coming out of it.” Instead of looking down at her cuts and feeling sad, she covered them with tattoos that bring her thankfulness. Demi has three tattoos over the scars with the words: “Stay strong,” “Strong” and “Stay.” What Demi talk about her tattoos below!

“Now I’m able to look at them and be thankful for being alive,” Demi explains. “I think that I’ve been blessed over the past year to be able to start over.”

It’s amazing that Demi can find a positive message out of a dark time in her life and that she’s not afraid to share her struggles with her fans. By speaking out, she could be helping other people experiencing similar issues.
