Lea Michele Reveals Tattoo Honoring Cory Monteith on New Magazine Cover

Lea Michele is baring it all- and revealing something special in the process.

The actress stripped down for the September cover of Women's Health U.K., showing off her multiple tattoos, but one in particular caught fans' attention- the word "Finn" inscribed on the actress' backside, Us Weekly reports.

Fans already knew that Michele had gotten a tattoo of the number five, which was the number of the football jersey Monteith's character Finn Hudson wore on Glee, as well as a tattoo of Monteith's last words to her, but this cover is a first glimpse of even more of Michele's ink.

The "Finn" tattoo is also significant because Michele's character on Glee, Rachel Berry, got a "Finn" tattoo on the show after Monteith's character passed away, and this is the first time fans are discovering that Michele sports the same ink in real life.

In a tweet posted Monday, Michele revealed that she actually got the aforementioned ink in 2011, nearly two years before Monteith's passing in 2013.

"Actually got that tattoo in December 2011!" she wrote. "Boy was that a fun night!"

Michele also spoke to the magazine about her current well-being.


"Right now, I feel physically in my best shape, and emotionally in my best place...I'm not perfect," she said. "I'm not trying to represent myself as being some perfect girl, but I love myself, flaws and all."

Michele's interview will be on stands Wednesday.
