Washington: Demi Lovato has revealed that the tattoos on her wrist remind her what she has overcome.

The former Disney starlet was admitted to rehab in November 2010 to receive three months treatment for an eating disorder and self-harming and got the inkings on her wrists to make sure she doesn’t forget how far she has come.

“I think scars are like battle wounds - beautiful, in a way. They show what you’ve been through and how strong you are for coming out of it. My tattoos say ‘Stay strong’/’Stay’ on one wrist and ‘strong’ on the other,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling US Glamour magazine.

“Now I’m able to look at them and be thankful for being alive. I think that I’ve been blessed over the past year to be able to start over,” she added.
