After nearly nine years as a couple, actors Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler ended their relationship in January 2020. Since the breakup, Hudgens has treated herself to some ink therapy. On January 23rd, Hudgens got a new tattoo by Bang Bang NYC's Dragon, who specializes in micro portraits and tattooed Hudgens's "High School Musical" cast mate Ashley Tisdale in November 2019. During this session, Hudgens got a small color sunflower on the side of her ribs and it didn't take long for the actor to find herself in Dragon's chair less than a month and a half later.

Hudgens visited Dragon at Bang Bang NYC's Grand St location last night, getting another delicate tattoo. This time, in addition to posting a photo of the tattoo, Hudgens took a video of herself reacting to the tattoo for the first time. And let me tell you, every artist hopes to get this reaction from a client. In the video, which currently has 5 million views, Hudgens runs to the mirror, sees her new tattoo and then proceeds to make a series of elated noises. Legendary.

Hudgens's new tattoo is a black-and-grey naked angel, which the actor called "Divine Feminine Angel" on her Instagram. What do you think of her new addition? Have you reacted this way toward a new tattoo? Let us know your thoughts on this story on social media.
