Country singer Dolly Parton has dismissed rumors that claim her body is covered in tattoos. Instead, she insists she only has a few small pieces.
She has been often asked if her tattoo collection for her wearing long sleeves all the time, but the star explained she likes to cover up.
She said, “I do have a few little tattoos, but they were mostly done to cover scars because I’m so fair. I do have a few but they’re not where you can see them… they are mostly for my husband.”
In 2012, comedienne Jennifer Saunders and Roseanne Barr were left speechless when the 68-year old unzipped her top to reveal tattoos on her breasts.
During an appearance the U.K.’s The Graham Norton Show, Saunders said, “I was in a restaurant with Rosanne Barr. Dolly was there and talking about tattoos. She winked at us and said, ‘This will go no further’, and then undid her top and there were her t**s and she has the most exquisite tattoos – angels and butterflies.”
“They are the most divine, Titian like drawings… I kid you not. Although I did wake up in the morning and thought that couldn’t have happened. But it did. It was one of the strangest evenings ever.”
More on Dolly news, she said she still keeps up with modern times. She said, “I try to surround myself with folks that keep up with it. But it’s completely different now, but it’s wonderful that I’m still here.”
“I say I’m as old as yesterday, but hopefully as new as tomorrow.”
