Kelsea Ballerini is dishing on her very meaningful tattoo.
In her new interview with Shape magazine, the 27-year-old country singer revealed the story behind getting her very first tattoo, which is ‘How sweet the sound’ on her left forearm near her wrist.
“This is a story I’ve never told publicly. The day before my first photo shoot, I panicked because I wanted a tattoo but didn’t have one yet,” Kelsea shared. “And I was like, What if this single [‘Love Me Like You Mean It’] works and people start to follow me? Then all of a sudden, I get a tattoo. People will be like, ‘She’s going off the deep end.’”
She continued, “So I went to the tattoo parlor the day before that shoot and got a tattoo. It was just this youthfully innocent way of saying, ‘I’ve got to be who I am from the beginning of this.’”
