Update: See Ariana’s second tattoo!
While her acting roles still remain within the Nickelodeon family, Ariana is working on establishing herself as a soulful adult singer. Her debut single, “The Way”, has already reached #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Now, while the song, itself, is relatively generic (with an unfortunate pairing with Mac Miller), it does show she has a ready-made appeal that lots of other young actresses don’t necessarily achieve in their singing debuts.
One area where Ariana differs from other young actresses is she didn’t get her acting education by being spoon-fed into family-friendly television at the start. Rather, Ariana cut her teeth on stage. Her debut was in the Broadway musical “13”, which she followed with other theatre performances in “Cuba Libre” and as the lead in “A Snow White Christmas”.
Ariana’s acting career has already garnered her some awards. For her performance in “13”, she won the National Youth Theatre Association Awards Best Actress Honor, and was also recognized as Favorite Television Actress by the Hollywood Teen TV Awards.
Once again, it should come as no surprise that Ariana has embraced that increasingly mainstream rite-of-passage: getting a tattoo. While taking a break in the recording studio, Ariana joined ‘Club Ink’ by getting a petite, cute heart tattoo on the second toe of her right foot. She even had the whole process filmed and posted on Youtube.
Below are photos of Ariana’s first tattoo:
