Lea Michele Has Nine Tattoos

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, actress Lea Michele, 23, reveals that she isn’t as straight-laced as the giddy character she portrays on television’s Glee: the star has nine tattoos!

Lea, who plays overachieving Rachel Berry on the hit show, even convinced series co-stars Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) and Kevin McHale (Artie) to have matching tattoos of the word “Imagine” inked on their left feet.

“I’m known to be the instigator to do some more risky stuff – so we have little tattoos on our feet now… It made a lot of sense that night.”

Her other body art includes a blue butterfly on her right foot drawn by her cousin, a butterfly on her back which she got with her mother, and a bird on her hip. Lea also has two musical notes from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” on her left shoulder and a tattoo on her thigh in memory of her grandfather, who died in 2009.
