It has been awhile since I last posted a feature on ‘New 2 Tats’. It has been one of those situations where the job can sometimes get in the way of a hobby (or ‘labor of love’, as I have long referred to this blog). I think a great celebrity to help get the ball rolling again is Jennifer Stone.
It has been absolutely no secret that one of the all-time favorites here at “New 2 Tats” is Selena Gomez (a former child star who, despite the pressures of growing up in the harsh spotlight of fame… made even stronger by her former high profile relationship with Justin Bieber…. has managed to stay fairly grounded…. and she has a great love of body art).
However, Selena’s fellow child star, and co-star of Disney’s “Wizards of Waverly Place”, Jennifer Stone is fast becoming another big favorite. While her post-“Wizards” career has been quieter than Selena’s, one only needs to follow her on Instagram and Twitter to see she’s making moves and enjoying life. One can also see exactly how much her love of tattoos has grown.
When I first published a feature on Jennifer, she just had one widely-known tattoo (though, I gather, she had already acquired others at that point). That first tattoo of her’s was not a tiny, hard to see design. She went bold with the bible verse Ecclesiastes 3:1 just beneath her shoulders. She first showed it off elegantly on the red carpet in a gorgeous black dress.
Jennifer now finds herself spending time working on many different endeavors, including modeling and music, while still keeping and ear to ground for the next good acting opportunity. She recently participated in a Project Mermaids photo shoot, an environmental charity where many celebrities pose in mermaid outfits to help bring awareness and raise funds for protecting beaches and oceans.
One of the more prominent tattoos that is seen on Jennifer is an Italian phrase circling her left wrist (I do not have the translation).
Jennifer also has another foreign phrase running along the inside of her right wrist.
During her Project Mermaids photo shoot, she showed off what appears to a be a gorgeous piece of body art on her torso. Available photos have not been able to show a clear depiction of the design, but it looks stunning.
Jennifer’s most recent turn under the tattoo needle is an old-style pocket watch design, which includes the phrase ‘Made in Texas’ on one half (she was born there), and a quote by Tennessee Williams from his ‘Catastrophe of Success’ essay on the other half. A later photo of Jennifer with friends at the beach shows this design appears on her right thigh (the photo also shows another script tattoo underneath her left breast).
The boldness and enthusiasm with which Jennifer approaches body art all but guarantees we will be treated to more stunning tattoos from her in the future. I can tell from following her on social media that she is going to have some entertaining projects coming up in the future as well.
