Happy tattoo day, Snooki!

 

Last week, the Jersey Shore star debuted her latest arm tat -- her "fierce leopard" -- on her Celebuzz site, kicking off her now-weekly tattoo series, in which she explains the meaning behind her ink. 

 

Now the reality TV personality is dishing out the details on her most mysterious marking: Her crown tattoo! The ambitious ink, which she had done during a September 2011 trip to Las Vegas, was her very first arm tattoo, and the meatball admits she was really "nervous" to get such a big tat.

 

"I wanted a crown to represent being a strong independent woman," she wrote, sounding awfully familiar to the statement she made regarding her "fierce leopard" tat. "I also added in a tiny cross on the top for remembering my loved ones that passed but also being Catholic."

 

As for the pretty pink bow, Snooki said she wanted that to "represent how girly I am." And as most Jersey Shore aficionados know, Snooki's bows are almost as important to her as her iconic poof.
