    The Tattoo

    I know this is discussed throughout many threads, but I didn't see a thread dedicated to the tattoo.

    If there is a thread for just the tattoo..please bump it for discussion and I will delete this one.

    I have seen different reports as to how it reads exactly. Can anyone defintively confirm what the tattoo says?
    TIA.

    She used Iron. It says "Bella Vida." That's the title of A Lindsey Lohan song she likes.

    She complained about Tony "not loving her" while she got the tat. She told the artist that Caylee was with the Nanny in Sanford or Stanford (which is north).

    Thanks, JBean! I will have to check on that one because I am not positive. I do think the one on her lower back is a four-leaf clover (or is it 3?) I have to check that photo again, too!

    Thanks SS. I would appreciate any and all fact finding regarding the tattoo. If she did indeed get it during the *month* it could indeed be very telling. but I need some factoids!

    Right- I have looked everywhere- you got news outlets accessing her cell phone records but they can't source where and when she got her last tattoo?? AAH

    It's a shamrock.

    You know when people are booked into jail, their distinguishing features and things like tattoos are carefully documented for any future arrests or identification.
    So I am certain that there are exact descriptions of any and all tattoos on her jail records. I have briefly looked at her booking page and charges, but did not see where the information on her records is public. If anyone knows if FL posts that information it would be very helpful, because it would be a concrete answer to any and all tattoos and what they say or depict.

    The shamrock has something to do with an Irish sports team....

    The "Bella Vida" / Beautiful Life tattoo was done after Caylee's disappearance.
    If I were an investigator, I'd talk to the person that did the tattoo.
    Maybe they were given a reason for the tattoo.

    why would she or Tone want to buy a vacation home (or possible rental/vacation property?). The home is 4000 sq ft or so...NOPE. I don't think it has anything to do with this property.
    I'm sure Casey speaks a bit of spanish considering the area she grew up in...not uncommon to go back and forth with spanish terms.

    I posted on the general thread some time ago one of the tattoo artists I am aware that she knows. If it was him, they would know by now.

    I remember reading recently someone's post about a tattoo parlor named "Solid Ink" or "Solid...something" that Casey reportedly mentioned to a friend? No doubt Orlando has a million tattoo parlors, but again - getting a tattoo is something people find worthy of mentioning to friends and/or family (even if they can't show it off) because of the permanency and symbolic nature of tattoos. It's like showing off a new limb because a tattoo becomes part of you, only you can control the originality and design.

    Tony at the very least can testify when Casey got the tattoo, and probably where, since he and Casey were spending practically every night together for the last two weeks of June (according to Clint House, Tony's roommate). Tattoo's take a couple of weeks to completely heal, and require special care and bandaging for the first few days. Not something easily hidden from a lover.

    I hope LE has figured out and spoken to the tattoo artist who did Casey's tattoo. Shouldn't be too hard to figure out as it's common to either take a friend with you when one gets a tatto, or you tell everyone where you got it (and usually how much you paid) when you show it off to friends and family. I doubt Tony would have missed seeing it. He would be a good source for the date Casey got the Bella Vida tattoo, and where Casey claimed to have received it.

    Talking to the artist is a great idea, because it is common for people to explain the symbology behind the tattoos they are getting as a matter of small talk with the person giving the tattoo. Maybe Casey was open enough to mention the tattoo was a memorial, but I bet she didn't. I bet she said she was just a proud mom.

    Nah....She's so narcissistic she probably told people it meant SHE had a beautiful life, wouldn't have been thinking of Caylee at all.

    I think KC had some pretensions to an Irish background. Her handle was "caseyomarie."

    Though a harp is a bit more Irish ethnic than a shamrock, IMHO.

    The LE report has both versions. One account says "la bella vida" (Spanish) and the second says "la bella vita" (Italian). Based on her photobucket pic and the fact that part of her heritage is Italian, I think she went with the Italian version. MOO

    Also Amy saw it and said Casey said it's Italian so this would be " Bueno Vita " or "la bella vita"

    IIRC it's on her left shoulder..I found it ironic b/c Caylee's birthmark is on her left shoulder as well. My bets are on the Italian version La Bella Vita since that was in her photobucket.
