Jennifer Lawrence Reveals H2O Tattoo... And Admits Its Embarrassing Design Mistake (PICS)

Jennifer Lawrence has unveiled a new tattoo on her hand - but science buffs won’t be keen to hear she went a little bit wrong with the chemistry-themed ink.


The ‘Hunger Games’ actress was photographed at Comic-Con, showing off a tiny H2O tattoo on her hand, the chemical symbol for water.

Speaking to HitFix, she admitted that she got the ink on a whim, while out with her co-star Liam Hemsworth and his family.

Jennifer explains: “I was with Liam's family and everybody was getting tattoos and I was like, well, I'm always going to need to be hydrated, so I guess I should just get an H2O on my hand.

“It's the color of a scar so it's au naturel and it's literally the most unrebellious tattoo that anybody could ever get. You know, I call this tattoo a watered-down rebellion because it's not like a real tattoo.”

However, after having the body art permanently inked on her skin, Jennifer looked at her hand and noticed it wasn’t completely accurate.

She adds: “By the way, I know that the two is high and H2O the two is supposed to be low. I should've Googled it before I got it tattooed on my body forever.”

Erm… yeah, you probably should have.

Don’t worry, though, Jen-Law - you’re in good company, with several other stars admitting their body art isn’t 100% accurate.

Last year, Kym Marsh told the ‘Loose Women’ panel that she’d had a Chinese symbol tattooed on her arm, believing it to say ‘Jack’ - the name of her then-husband - only to learn it actually said ‘Communist’.

Meanwhile, Jessie J has also confessed that there’s a spelling mistake in her tattoo, despite the fact that the design is actually of her own song lyrics.
