Getting inked is a pretty fun way to mark a momentous occasion: Just ask Lucy Hale, who debuted a new daisy tattoo in celebration of her 32nd birthday. The Pretty Little Liars star documented the process on her Instagram stories this morning, writing “I love her !!!” of the final result. Hale opted for a small purple flower on her forearm, just beneath her elbow.

The actor — who’s currently in London filming Ragdoll, a new crime drama set to premiere on AMC later this year — got her fresh design from tattoo artist Claudio Traina, who confirmed to Bustle that Hale’s tattoo is a daisy. And because getting a celebratory tattoo is double the fun with a pal, she brought along her friend, personal trainer and clothing designer, Nathalie Ballout (who got a Hamsa on her bicep).

Hale’s daisy tattoo is the newest addition to her fast-growing collection of ink. Last June, she revealed four micro tattoos she got in honor of her “loves:” her two nieces, nephew, and dog Elvis. The actor also has matching tattoos with her sister and her PLL castmates. That’s not to mention the self-love tat she got on Valentine’s Day two years ago, as well as the elephant, lightbulb, bow, C.S. Lewis quote, evil eye, and various other symbols she’s gotten over the years. Obviously, Hale loves a meaningful, dainty tattoo. It’s unclear what exactly her new floral ink represents, but time will tell.
