Demi Lovato Fires Back At Tattoo Artist’s Nasty Instagram Attack
Um so Demi Lovato rules. Remember a few weeks ago when she had a regrettable kiss mark tattoo on her wrist which she called a “vagina” covered up? Well turns out the tattoo artist, Ashley McMullen, was none too pleased at Demi’s description of her work or the fact that she had it covered up. After what must have been many nights tossing and turning, Ashey coudn’t take it any longer and jumped on Instagram to lash out at the 22-year-old singer.
“Cool post @ddlovato, thanks for getting the tattoo covered up I did for free that you specifically asked for. Not to mention you didn’t even have the courtesy to offer me any money in the first place. You pissed all over our toilet seat and you made a fool of yourself. What a shame that people look up to you. The tattoo you covered it with kinda sucks too. Looks like you might forever be a goon. #demilovato #scumbag #turd #claimstobesober #drankallthebeer #peepeetoiletseat #yousuck”
Yikes! Those are some pretty damning words, but Demi knows how to stay strong and responded in a way that not only owned up to her past mistakes with drugs and alcohol, but smartly put Ashley in her place.
“Dear Ashley McMullen, I wasn’t going to acknowledge your bitter Instagram comments but since your side of the story has picked up some headlines, I would like to share my thoughts and send you a proper apology. First, I would like to say I’m really sorry I don’t remember you or getting tattooed by you, but as you know I was fucked up and sometimes people act like “#turds” when they’re loaded. Second, I apologize for my “#peepeetoiletseat”… That wasn’t on purpose, I was simply a drunken teenage girl. Lastly, I apologize for making fun of your work.. But… if I were you, I wouldn’t claim that one because it looked more like an open vagina (or even a butt hole as my 8 year old little sister called it at the time.) I also wouldn’t be admitting to the fact that you tattooed a very intoxicated 18 year old on a tour bus without the proper judgement that most legit tattoo artists have of saying “Hmm… This underage kid is wasted, maybe I shouldn’t permanently ink a hot pink kiss mark on this girl’s wrist….? Oh well… Fuck it, she’s famous.” I can’t blame you for getting the tattoo, I take full responsibility for that but if the issue here is you wanting credit, maybe next time you should wait for the person to get your tattoo sober so they would actually remember getting the tattoo in the first place, or perhaps you could’ve thought about all of this as a blessing that I forgot everything about you – that was until you outted yourself for the now internationally infamous “vagina tattoo.” But you’re right, I should give credit where credit is due, and you Ashley, surely deserve credit for this one. #justputitonmytab”
All I have for this is L-O-L-Z and mad mad respect for Demi. You go girl!
