It's no secret that singer/actress Demi Lovato has gone through a great deal over the past few years, which includes a stint in rehab for emotional issue. But now, the "Skyscraper" singer has dusted herself off and come full circle with a successful album and throngs of fans who have supported her road to recovery.
In a feature for Glamour magazine's January 2012 issue, she explains how she chose to cover up her self-inflicted scars due to cutting:
I can dig it!“I think scars are like battle wounds—beautiful, in a way. They show what you’ve been through and how strong you are for coming out of it. My tattoos say “Stay strong.” “Stay on one [wrist] and “strong” on the other. Now I’m able to look at them and be thankful for being alive. I think that I’ve been blessed over the past year to be able to start over.”
