Glee's Lea Michele on body art: 'I have 14 tattoos'

'Glee' beauty Lea Michele has opened up about her love of body art and revealed that she has 14 tattoos at the moment and wouldn't say no to getting more ink in the future.

Although Michele plays clean-cut Rachel Berry on the popular U.S. musical drama series, she is nothing like her character and admitted to David Letterman during a recent interview on The Late Show that getting tattoos is something of a "family tradition", but hers are "all so little that you don't see them":

"For me, it's weirdly enough a family activity. I come from a very big Italian family; tattoos are very popular. So, it'll be, like, Easter, and we'll be talking, and we'll be like, 'Let's all go get tattoos!'"

"And then we get super sentimental, and then the next day I wake up with another butterfly on my foot. And I'm like, 'It seemed more important in the moment'."
