Dove Cameron Is Talking All About Her Tattoos & Reveals She Got Her First One at 14!

Dove Cameron is opening up all about her tiny tattoos in an interview with Refinery29.

The 23-year-old actress has a total of nine of them, including a snake on her right hand middle finger, a little x that matches with Kiersey Clemons‘ own, and the one she plans to get in honor of her dad. Check it:

On getting her first tattoo, in a unconventional way: “I got my first tattoo when was 14 — illegally and without parental permission. My best friend made friends with this guy who had a tattoo gun. He told us he’d been practicing on oranges and was ready. Keep in mind we’re in 7th grade and I still had braces.”

On the one she’ll get in honor of her father: “My dad passed away when I was 15, and when I was younger he used to always have me say, ‘Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker’. I think it’s from Willy Wonka, but it’s such an inappropriate thing for a child to say. He would always send me up to people and be like, ‘Go tell that person what I said!’ It would piss off my grandparents to no end and it makes me laugh so much and reminds me of the kind of person he was. I don’t have any tattoos for my dad yet, so I am planning to get ‘candy is dandy’ soon.”

On getting matching tattoos with her boyfriend, Thomas Doherty: “Thomas and I weren’t even dating yet, so it was very risqué to be getting a matching tattoo with this random guy, so good thing it worked out! We started dating a month later. But he told me he loved me a week before that, so it was a very whirlwind thing… Actors — they’re crazy!”
