Dove Cameron Plans On Getting A Special Tattoo For Her Dad Soon

Dove Cameron is chatting all about her tattoos in a new interview with Refinery29.

Check out the meanings behind some of the 23-year-old actress’s ink:

On getting her first tattoo, in a unconventional way: “I got my first tattoo when was 14 — illegally and without parental permission. My best friend made friends with this guy who had a tattoo gun. He told us he’d been practicing on oranges and was ready. Keep in mind we’re in 7th grade and I still had braces.”

On the one she’ll get in honor of her father: “My dad passed away when I was 15, and when I was younger he used to always have me say, ‘Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker’. I think it’s from Willy Wonka, but it’s such an inappropriate thing for a child to say. He would always send me up to people and be like, ‘Go tell that person what I said!’ It would piss off my grandparents to no end and it makes me laugh so much and reminds me of the kind of person he was. I don’t have any tattoos for my dad yet, so I am planning to get ‘candy is dandy’ soon.”

On getting a matching tattoo with co-star Kiersey Clemons: “After that, I got an X with [actress] Kiersey Clemons. We did our first movie together [Cloud 9], and we fell madly in love. On my 21st birthday, we went to Vegas and we were so drunk and Kiersey was like, ‘Let’s get an X and an O, so we’re X and O and bonded! Pinky swear!’ It was pretty cute. She wanted the O for wholeness and I wanted the X because it was at a crossroads in my life — or whatever figurative s*** we came up with that night.”
