Leighton Meester is best known as the social-climbing manipulator, Blair Waldorf, from the popular, and controversial, CW teen drama “Gossip Girl”. This devilish and dastardly character has put the dual-threat (singer/actress) Leighton on the map as one of pop culture’s current ‘It’ girls.
Prior to her breakthrough role on “Gossip Girl”, this actress made earlier waves in roles such as the doomed girlfriend of a terrorist’s son in “24” and the virginal object of Vinny Chase’ desire in “Entourage”. More recently, she put her vocal skills to the test alongside Gwyneth Paltrow in “Country Strong” and she did her own “Single White Female” film called “The Roommate” with her acting doppleganger, Minka Kelly. She even starred alongside ‘New 2 Tats’ favorite, Selena Gomez, in 2011’s “Monte Carlo” (which also starred Katie Cassidy, the daughter of “The Partridge Family’s” David Cassidy, and who will be the subject of a future ‘New 2 Tats’ feature herself)
At the current time, Leighton has only one known tattoo (although she does periodically get photographed with temporary body art). It is a flower just below her left wrist. The story of how she got it is kind of sweet. Years earlier, she had been directed in a movie called “Remember the Daze” by her friend, Jess Manafort. Jess has a little star tattoo design on her wrist and Leighton decided she wanted a tattoo, herself. So, at the conclusion of filming, they went and commemorated that fun experience by getting inked together. This picture below shows the tattoos of Leighton, Jess, and another actress
As you can see, Leighton’s design is very cute. Here are several other pictures that show the very glamorous Leighton with her very visible tattoo (just another step in showing how body art is really just becoming another accessory in expressing one’s self)
