London (ANI): Leona Lewis is trying her best to come out of her tame image – the singer has now got herself inked down her back. A pal revealed that the body art was a tribute to her favourite animal, horses. The tattoo is a poetic message that runs from the nape of her neck down the middle of her back. “Their beauty captures every eye, a gift from God for all mankind, they lend us wings so we may fly, to ride a horse is to ride the sky," the tattoo apparently reads.
Lewis, 24, unveiled the risque tattoo as she donned a figure-hugging dress at The Love Ball at The Roundhouse, north-west London. “Leona is often branded dull and mocked as lacking a personality. This is her way of hitting back at that," the Daily Star quoted an insider as saying. The source added: “Leona loves tattoos and she felt having a really bold design running the length of her back would have a real impact.
“She"s seen what other people like Victoria have had done and used her passion for horses as the inspiration. “She"s really proud of it and isn"t ashamed to show it off.". Lewis also has a tiny Hebrew inking on her wrist.
