Paris Jackson says tattoos helped her cover ‘dark past’

paris-jacksonParis Jackson, daughter of the late pop star Michael Jackson, says her tattoos are more than just body art to her and that they represent the struggles she has overcome.

The 18-year-old — who attempted to take her own life in 2013 — shared an Instagram post on Tuesday, saying that the tattoos have covered the scars on her arms and reminded her that she is “a fighter”, reports dailymail.co.uk.

“I can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me. I don’t see a dark past anymore. My scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity and depth,” Paris wrote.

“The craftsmanship of tattoos will always be a controversy. Some people like them, some people absolutely hate them. I appreciate art, I always have. Especially when that art means something to me,” she added.

Paris was photographed with what appeared to be self-harm scars six weeks before she tried to take her own life on June 5, 2013.

Paris, who was 15 at the time, was admitted to a psychiatric ward after she cut her wrists and took painkillers.
