Priyanka Chopra is one of the most talented and successful actresses, singers, and film producers. She is also a winner of the Miss World 2000 pageant, which helped her come under the spotlight. She has had major roles in several movies. However, what most fans are wondering is what is the meaning of her tattoo? Here is everything there is to know about Priyanka Chopra’s tattoo.
The Inspiration Behind the Tattoo
The tattoo Mrs Jonas got is far from a random tattoo. In fact, the inspiration for behind her tattoo was the close relationship she had with her father, Ashok Chopra. Unfortunately, her father passed away in 2013 from cancer. He has been battling with the disease since 2008 and Priyanka has shifted all her focus on praying for his recovery. In an interview she gave for Harper’s BAZAAR last year, she said:
‘I was very close to my father. Losing my dad changed me in a big way. I think it created a space in my heart which is empty, and it’s always going to be. My dad was my biggest fan, my biggest supporter. He loved my achievements, he was a major achiever himself. He was a very creative person. So just losing that and losing his insight on my life. I used to be angry with him after he died, I felt abandoned.’
Her father had a huge influence on her life and losing him was devastating for her. Hence, as a result of their close relationship, Priyanka decided to get a tattoo, which will always remind her what’s important to her.
The Meaning of the Tattoo
Priyanka Chopra was truly devastated going through the trauma of her father’s sickness. So, soon after his death, she decided to get a tattoo, which reads ‘Daddy’s lil girl.’ What’s so great about the tattoo is that it’s extra special as it’s in her father’s handwriting. Hence, she made sure that her father would stay with her forever. Priyanka got inked in 2012, only a year before the day passing of her dad.
Does Priyanka Have Other Tattoos?
Priyanka doesn’t have any other tattoo, except the one she dedicated to her father. Even if she did, no one knows about them as she has managed to keep them a secret. Nevertheless, she does have a piercing. Chopra has a navel ring, which she got during her rebellious years. Regarding this fashionable adornment, in a Times of India interview, she said,
‘In one moment of madness, I went ahead and got my belly button pierced. I was sh*tting bricks later. I got hold of a friend and went over and told my mother about it. I knew she would freak out. But once things cooled down, my father even got me the diamond I wear. And I’m happy to show it off.’
However, it is very obvious that Priyanka wears her tattoo with pride.
