Dove Cameron revealed that she got a permanent tribute dedicated to her late co-star and close friend, Cameron Boyce. As you remember, the young actor tragically lost his life at the age of 20 after suffering a seizure in his sleep.
It has been a bit over five months since then and people haven’t forgotten.
Still painful, the loss is on many people’s minds, be it fans or loved ones of Cameron’s and the list includes Descendants co-star Dove Cameron.
The actress shared the touching tattoo she got to remember him forever.
While shooting a clip for Vogue’s 24 Hours series, during which she was meant to, as the title says, document her whole day, she also captured on camera the process of getting inked.
Dove shared that she wanted her 11th tattoo to be of a firearm but with a rose or a bouquet of flowers coming out of it.
She went on to explain the meaning of the tattoo, saying that it has not one but two!
‘Because I’m very anti-gun, and I’m very pro-gun regulation. It is sort of like a nationally recognized symbol for peace and anti-gun. And also, my friend Cameron, who passed away a few months ago, he was starting an organization called Wielding Peace.’
The actress went on: ‘He wanted to get influential people to hold things that looked like they were in the shape of a gun, but it would be artistic or peaceful. Actually, he did it with a bouquet of flowers, and I think that is really beautiful and I have been trying to think of a tattoo to get for him since he passed, and I felt that this one was really appropriate.’
The piece of permanent body art ended up on the side of her arm and it looks beautiful.
Sure enough, Dove was also super in love with how it came out.
