Actress Bella Thorne is known for sharing her life to the fullest on social media, whether it be her relationship drama, upcoming professional projects, or an update on her mental health. And these days, it takes something big to surprise us from the former Disney darling. However, on July 14th, the 21-year-old posted a photo that quickly caught our attention: an enormous tattoo.

In the past, Thorne has followed in the footsteps of many starlets in Hollywood by collection small and delicate tattoos. But, just yesterday, she posted a photo rocking a full sleeve. This led many of her fans to question if the tattoo was real or fake, as most people cannot get their entire arm tattooed over night. Yet, whether the tattoo is real or fake, we can certainly appreciate the artistry.

Over the years, we've been very critical of celebrities' tattoo decisions. However, if this is a real tattoo on Thorne, we'd applaud her for selecting a tasteful illustrative rendition of an Alphonse Mucha design. Either way, her post definitely has the potential to spawn some beautiful and elegant tattoos from her very impressionable fan base.

While the jury is still out on the status on Bella's sleeve, there's one thing that we do know for sure. And that's her brand new back tattoo. Shortly after sharing a photo of her arm, Thorne flipped the switch and showed off a very real script piece on her spine. The tattoo reads "Bruised but not broken," and if we had to guess, the piece was inked by celebrity tattooer Winter Stone—who tattooed a similar lettering design above Thorne's knee on June 23rd.
