has been in NYC for fashion week but she managed to find some time to add in a little East Side ink, that is, a neck tattoo at Manhattan's Avenue B tattoo parlor.
Via E! News:
"...famed tat artist Keith "Bang Bang" McCurdy was the one that did the tattoo, which soon surfaced as twitpic courtesy of one of Vanessa's pals. The shop is the same one that got slapped with a fine after they let Rihanna tattoo an umbrella and an "R" onto some workers there in 2009. BangBang had tattooed a "Sssh" on the singer's finger and a gun on her ribcage."
I'm all for neck tattoos, as a a matter of fact, I have one too, but I can't help think that Vanessa's fast approaching a bad girl image, especially after her very seductive campaign for Candies and sexy shoot for Details
(where she wore lingerie and rolled around a bed or under a shower). Is she finding her identity? Or, is she trying to send a message to her ex Zac Efron that she doesn't need him to have fun? Or, is she just a young celeb with lots of money have an exceptionally good time being rich and good looking? No judgment either way. But this Disney darling has fallen far from the cutesy High School Musical tree.
