When she was asked what the inked message meant, she answered with “none of your business”. In 2011, the X Factor star revealed that her wrist tattoo was actually inked in the wrong language. Her intention was to get a Sanskrit message on her lower arm, but apparently she ended up with a Hindi message.

Anderson’s ankle tattoo is small and subtle, her second tattoo has a measurement of one inchwide and two inch in length. The tat has a tribal design and inking this one was an unforgettable experience, because the equipment used to ink was made of an electric razor, shish kebab sticks, a sewing needle, a ballpoint pen casing and the gear ran on a battery pack.
