Glee’s Lea Michele (Rachel) has at least 13 tattoos at this point, regularly getting inked with meaningful memories. And what could be more meaningful than the death of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith (Finn)?
It’s been two months since that awful day, and we always see Lea wearing her special silver “Cory” necklace, but will she also get a Cory-related tattoo?
According to Star magazine (via HollywoodLife), she’s already done it. An unnamed “friend” of hers told the magazine, “It’s in a private place, with Cory’s initials in a black heart. It’s something she did for herself and to always remember the love they shared.” It’s certainly possible she did just that, but we’ll have to wait and see if Lea (or someone with an actual name) confirms it.
HollywoodLife says this would be Lea’s 15th tattoo, but the counting gets tricky when you factor in the tats she’s had removed, and any new ones she may have gotten and just not mentioned.
We know she has the most ink of anyone in the Glee cast, including two butterflies (one on her right foot and one on her lower back); the words "I Believe" inside her right wrist; music notes from the song "Bohemian Rhapsody" (left shoulder blade); a gold star on her left wrist in honor of Rachel Berry; the word "Imagine" on her left foot; a cross on the side of her left rib cage; and a tattoo on her thigh in memory of her deceased grandfather (unseen).
Last September, Lea removed her small red heart tattoo from inside her left middle finger. She also covered her “Our City, Our Love” tattoo after breaking up with ex Theo Stockman. That’s now covered by three butterflies flying in a line.
Do you think Lea should (or did) get a Cory tattoo? Is it something you would do in her shoes?
