"Teen Mom 2" star Jenelle Evans has debuted her new leopard tattoo. It's been a tough year for the young mom, but she has said her tattoo is meant to represent the personal strength that she has but often doesn't show.
"I have been planning this tattoo out for a while now but I never wanted to get it done because I didn't feel as if it was the correct timing because it didn't mean anything to me. I thought that it would be stupid to get it without any meaning," Evans posted on her blog.
"Just recently I thought about it and got it! The Leopard itself represents how strong I am but no one knows and they underestimate my strength so that's why the leopard print fades away. I'm so strong and no one sees, I guess no one sees my strengths because I do it discreetly," Evans added.
She is definitely not the first "Teen Mom" to reveal brand new ink. Just a few months ago, Evans' co-star Kailyn Lowry displayed the next stage of her back tattoo. Lowry is working to have her entire back completely covered in ink and managed to have the outer frame finished before posting a picture.
Nearly all of the "Teen Mom" stars have ink at some level, whether it be their children's names or other designs. Evans already had nine tattoos, including her son's name, "Jace Vahn." Others include the shortened phrase "You Only Live Once (YOLO)" and a "J" on her neck, which is the first letter of her and son Jace's names.
Evans has been up and down this year, yet continues to try and fight to gain custody of her son Jace, who is currently in the care of her mother. Her tumultuous relationships with family and significant others will be featured on the upcoming season of "Teen Mom 2."
