Demi Lovato gave fans a glimpse at her latest tattoo in photos she shared on Instagram on Wednesday.

The Grammy-nominated singer showed off a detailed black butterfly design on the right side of her neck in a selfie.

Lovato wore a pale-pink, floral mid-length dress with matching pumps and diamond jewelry that she showed off in a full-length shot, which she posted along with the selfie.

"Dear little me, I'm sorry that it took so long but baby your free," Lovato captioned the post.

Lovato's latest neck tattoo may be linked to new music, as she revealed in August that she was writing a new song called "Butterfly." The star was sporting a butterfly manicure on her Instagram story when she announced the forthcoming song. 

Though the star didn't explicitly reference her new tattoo in her Instagram post, fans on Instagram were quick to notice the ink, and some questioned whether the caption was a hint at forthcoming song lyrics.

"Is that a new tattoo I see?" one user wrote.

"If that's lyrics, I'm here for it," another commented.

The butterfly tattoo is the star's third neck tattoo. She debuted her first two neck tattoos in December 2019. One tattoo is of the word "survivor," and the second is a fallen angel lifted by three doves. She also has a number of tattoos on her hand and feet.

In February, Lovato posted photos of her first two neck tattoos, writing about how they represent a "spiritual awakening."

I recently went dark on social media in preparation for my Grammy and Super Bowl performances but while I was off socials I got this incredibly meaningful tattoo done by @alessandro_capozzi. Getting tatted by him was an experience I’ve never had before.. no idea what I was going to get done, I told him about my life and where I was at in that moment and we created a combination on images that best symbolized the spiritual awakening I was having. Having a fallen angel being lifted by 3, pure, angelic doves (the Holy trinity) as her inner light is being guided by a higher consciousness, and the disintegration of her dark wings was representing the darkness I was shedding. Alessandro – you are extremely talented and I can’t wait for more!! Thank you for this special experience.. the only bummer is I can’t physically see this amazing artwork because it’s on my back! Haha. Also shout out to @scooterbraun for introducing us! 🖤🕊💉 ps. I still can’t believe how life like this looks and it healed amazing as well 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
