Pop star Katy Perry shared a photo of her old wrist tattoo that reads "Jesus" in a social media post on Easter Sunday, just weeks after she spoke about preparing for a "big soul overhaul."
In an Instagram post on Sunday, the singer showed off a close up of her tattoo and captioned it with the text, "my brokenness + God's Divinity = my wholeness."
Perry, who was born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, was raised by evangelical Christian parents and started her career as a Gospel singer. According to Popstartats, the singer got the tattoo when she was 18, just before she transitioned from a Christian singer to a mainstream artist.
The singer has previously stated that the tattoo was meant to be a reminder of where she came from. "I see it every time I'm playing guitar. It's looking back up at me. That's where I come from, and probably where I'm going back to," she said, according to Popstartats.
Perry's Instagram post came after she spoke about preparing for a "big soul overhaul" during an interview with Glamour magazine in February.
"I'm preparing to do a big soul overhaul very soon that I'm nervous about," Perry told the magazine.
The singer talked about letting go of her memories of her "childhood trauma" and expressed her desire to raise her own family in the future.
"I'm preparing myself for having a family of my own someday. And that's the thing: I want to do a little bit more soul surgery before I have a family of my own so that I don't transfer any of those lingering feelings," she continued.
Apart from her personal struggles, Perry is also currently embroiled in a legal dispute with a group of nuns over a former convent in Los Angeles.
Perry wanted to buy the property in the Los Feliz neighborhood for $14.5 million, but the nuns opposed the sale to Perry and tried to sell it to businesswoman Dana Hollister.
With the help of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Perry sued Hollister for interfering with the deal and was awarded $1.57 million as compensation for legal fees.
Last month, Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, one of the nuns involved in the legal dispute, suddenly collapsed in court and died. In an interview shortly before her death, Holzman had begged Perry to drop the lawsuit. "...To Katy Perry, please stop. It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people," the nun said, as reported by Fox News.
