Back in April, Demi Lovato shocked and surprised the world with a beautiful Lion tattoo on the back of her right hand. But is she already getting tired of it? As she walked the red carpet at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday in a strapless dress, the ink appeared to have faded.
A vanishing act
Faded or concealed? The tattoo looked faded comparing it to when she inked it in April. See the difference!
The 25-year-old already has more than 20 tattoos. This particular design is created by New York City tattoo artist Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy who became known as a tattooist after creating a similar design for model Cara Delevingne’s finger in 2013.
The Albuquerque-born singer and actress added the Lion to her collection of body art after attending the Time 100 Gala in New York City in April. Canadian singer Justin Bieber also has a similar image of a Lion inked on his chest.

The singer also took the stage at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater during the AMA’s to perform ‘Sorry Not Sorry’. While she was singing the song, mean tweets were projected behind her.
She also brought a guest to the AMA’s: the first openly transgender legislator to be elected to the Virginia legislature, Danica Roem. The 33-year-old journalist and politician was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates in this year’s elections.
Demi is a vocal activist for transgender rights and took a stand against North Carolina’s bathroom law last year.
