Ivana Alawi just got a new tattoo! The YouTuber-actress recently posted a *topless* photo of herself, showing off the low-key ink under her left boob. The red tattoo says, "Je m'aime", a French phrase that means "I love myself" in English. It's her way of expressing self-love, and we're here for it!

What's cool about this tattoo placement is that it can be easily hiddenit's perfect for someone whose workplace does not allow visible ink. Brace yourself, thoughthe underboob area will hurt more than if you were to get a tattoo on your forearm or thigh.

Aside from her red ink, Ivana also has a butterfly tattoo on her backand there's a special meaning behind it. "Para sa'kin kasi para siyang rebirth," Ivana shared in an interview with Angelica Panganiban for her online talk show, Ask Angelica. "Kasi nu'ng time na 'yung lasenggera ako. Brokenhearted. So all-in-one siyaTapos ‘yung meaning kasi sa'kin ng butterfly para siyang rebirth na from a caterpillar, pwede kang mag-glow into something beautiful."
