What Would Dolly Do? Well, she wouldn’t get a full sleeve, it seems.
Dolly Parton finally lets the fans into their secret tattoos. Her affinity for long sleeved tops and dresses sparked rumors that she is actually hiding something under those sleeves. But in a new interview for W Magazine, Dolly revealed that she’s not quite finished.
“I have a few little tattoos here and there,” said the singer, who previously revealed she has ink from ribbons, bows, beehives and butterflies. “I don’t have the really heavy, dark tattoos. Mine are all pastel colors.
As she mentioned in the past, Dolly decided to get a tattoo because of scars from medical procedures, even if she had a feeding tube.
“Most of my tattoos came because I’m very fair and tend to get scars if I get a cut,” she told the magazine. “I have had operations on a number of things and if the scars don’t heal properly, all I have to do is get tattoos to remove the sting.” (In 2015, she postponed rumors that she had stomach cancer while sharing her kidney stones removed.)
