How Many Tattoos Does Demi Lovato Have? A Ton & They're All Pretty Meaningful — PHOTOS

What's better than getting a new tattoo? Seeing how magical your tattoo artist can be in covering up an old one with a new and improved, less impulsive one, of course. More plainly, Demi Lovato masked an old tattoo she didn't seem to be too pleased with any longer. The singer posted a picture to her Instagram account of her brand spankin' new ink that starts at her wrist and ends mid-forearm. She cheekily captioned the photo, "Bye bye [lips emoji] and hello [rose emoji].. Thank you SO MUCH to my brother @GEESPOTAT2... It looks beaaauutiful and I LOVE it!! #RIPvaginatattoo #kidsdontdodrugs."

The new rose she's sporting is just below the word, "Stay," one of the many other tattoos Lovato has painted her body with. And when I say "many," I mean tons. According to Cosmopolitan, as of July 2014, Lovato had 26 tattoos. So, I suppose this one can count as number 27, even though it's technically a replacement.

And that "Stay" tattoo? Well, it's only half of a phrase she got inked on both of her wrists. Lovato told iHeartRadio the purpose of her ink and it's incredibly sweet. She explained,

So, what are some Lovato's other tattoos? Let's take a look:

The Now-Covered Up Lips Tattoo

Hey, I didn't think this one was so bad, Demi.

"Faith" & Birds

Cosmo says, "Lovato had celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D ink 12 birds on her arm, representing freedom and the 12 steps she completed as part of her post-rehab sober living program."

"I have the number three in Roman numerals on my wrist and that was a number that was very significant to my birth father because he loved Dale Earnhardt. So when he passed away I got the number three tattooed on me to remind me of him, and also because I love Dale Earnhardt." Lovato explained to iHeartRadio.

A Tattoo Of Africa

Lovato told iHeartRadio, "I got Africa tattooed. I went there for my 21st birthday. I went to Kenya and it was just a very, very inspirational journey that I feel like really had a huge impact on my life. And, I would've gotten Kenya but then people would have been like, 'What's that?' So Africa's a little more distinct."

"Now I'm A Warrior"

Lyrics from her inspirational song, "Warrior."

"You Make Me Beautiful" With Feathers

Demi told iHeartRadio of this tattoo, "I was 16. And I got it in some tattoo artist's apartment. Like it was so sketch, it was in L.A. But I wanted to get tattooed so bad. I do things out of rebellion. So that was like one of the main reasons why I got it so young."

"Peace" & "Rock n Roll"

Demure but poignant.
