Demi Lovato has marked the holiday season by getting some new body art.

The singer collaborated with tattoo artist Alessandro Capozzi on Monday to design a fallen angel being lifted up by doves, which is meant to represent "a rebirth of spirit".

"We created this piece together to represent a rebirth of the spirit," Capozzi wrote on Instagram, along with images of the detailed black-and-white design being etched onto Lovato's back. "The dark wings represent the bad times, their fading away is how she moved forward. The light from within represents the inner strength necessary for the change and the doves, pulling her up, symbolise the reach of an higher state of consciousness (sic). Congratulations on your inspiring journey Demi, honoured to have represented this for you."

In the comments, the 27-year-old praised Capozzi's work by writing, "Thank you so much it’s incredible and you are so extremely talented."

According to TMZ.com, Demi was introduced to the tattoo artist by her manager Scooter Braun at Ariana Grande's concert the day before, and they spent eight hours working on the ink at his private studio in Los Angeles on Monday.

The artwork comes months after the Confident hitmaker celebrated a year of sobriety following her near-fatal overdose in the summer of 2018, six years after previously kicking her substance abuse habit.

This is the latest body art she has acquired to serve as a lasting reminder of her recovery. Earlier this month, Lovato turned to celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo to create a neck tattoo declaring herself a "survivor". She also had the word "me" inked onto her left ring finger earlier this year, joining her "stay strong" mantra on her wrists, and her "now I'm a warrior" declaration on her back.
