PHOTO – Snooki explains the meaning behind her winged-leopard tattoo


Snooki shared her new winged leopard tattoo on her new Celebuzz blog Monday. She says she got the tattoo last week in L.A. when she was there for the last Jersey Shore reunion ever! *tear* The tattoo artist was her favorite, Bryce Oprandi, at the The Martlet Tattoo.

She chose a leopard for this one because she loves leopards and leopard print, and she feels it represents a strong, independent woman. The wings are for everyone in her family who has passed away, and the crown is for Snooki being a strong, independent woman.

Snooks is going to give the story behind her other five tattoos one at a time every Monday, and also reveal her plans for a seventh.

The 25-year-old reality star brought in the New Year last night with her fiance Jionni LaValle. She’s not hoping for a long engagement though, last night she tweeted to Jionni, who’s also her baby’s father “I LOVE U! Ur amazing and you made my 2012 AMAZING! Thank u for giving me Lorenzo, I love my family. NOW LETS GET MARRIED!”
