Vanessa Hudgens has been hitting mini milestones in her tattoo journey at a rapid pace. As of June 2021, the actor has 10 pieces of ink in her collection, which is rather small — at least compared to her pals Selena Gomez (who has at least 17 known tattoos) and Ashley Benson (who has somewhere around 25 known tattoos).
As far as free-spirited stars go, Hudgens definitely reigns supreme, and her fine-line tattoos match that vibe. She’s the queen of delicate, small artwork. In addition to the sunflower on her side-boob and angel on her other, she’s gotten a phrase in script on her shoulder, the number “22” on the side of her wrist, a couple of finger tattoos, a tiny design in her ear, and a snake on her ankle. Hudgens also has halves of the om symbol on each of her hands — part on one pinky finger and part on the other — so that when she puts her hands together in a meditating position, it forms the whole ॐ symbol. The ink is a bit hard to see, not just because of how small it is; the artwork is from 2011 when she got tatted with long-time bestie Ashley Tisdale.
Hudgens’s most noticeable tattoo happens to be her first: a colorful butterfly on the left side of her neck. The actress got it in 2011 at New York City parlor Bang Bang Tattoo.
