Lea Michele has vowed to have more tattoos.
The 'Glee' actress - who plays Rachel Berry in the musical TV show - likes to mark events and pay tribute to people in her life with her body art, and insists her recent tenth design, the word 'Imagine' which she shares with co-stars Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz, won't be the last inking she gets.
She said: "I have 10, but they're tiny, a gold star for Rachel, one for (stage show) 'Spring Awakening', the butterfly on my back is for my mom, another on my foot is for my cousins, and Kevin and Jenna and I have 'Imagine.' The day I got my newest one - it won't be my last - I texted Kevin, 'At the tattoo parlour,' and he replied, 'We just got here. Where are you?' And I said, 'I'm in New York. Where are you?' And he goes, 'At the tattoo parlour in Los Angeles.' We'd randomly gone on the same night."
Lea's love of tattoos has also made her co-star Dianna Agron consider getting more body art because she loves her friend's designs so much.
Asked by America's Marie Claire magazine how many tattoos she has, Dianna said: "One. It says 'Mary had a little lamb'; my mom's name is Mary. I don't know if I'd get more, even though around Jenna and Lea, I'm like, 'Yeah, I want another!' "
