Paris Jackson has grown up in the media eye in the most acute way possible — you can't really have a more famous dad than Michael Jackson. Still, after a period of struggle with the trappings of fame, it seems that Paris is more comfortable in her own skin — looking great, expressing herself and being who she wants to be. Check out these stunning photos of this smart young woman rocking her bad self:
Boyfriend Michael Snoddy seems to be a big part of Paris's new happiness, and the pair are clearly very close. Good for them!
Paris's Instagram is full of lovely pics of her and Michael together. Awww!
If you think Paris has gotten super tatted up recently, you're not wrong. After a difficult time of alcohol addiction and self harm, Paris bravely opened up on Instagram about using her ink to create something positive from something painful:
the craftsmanship of tattoos will always be a controversy. some people like them, some people absolutely hate them. i appreciate art, i always have. especially when that art means something to me. today i can look at my inner forearms and see art that has meaning for me, i don't see a dark past anymore. my scars and past of self-hatred have been covered by loving marks, creativity, ingenuity.. and depth. sure i will always carry my past with me, but i see ink as a way of changing for the better, always improving. they represent strength for me. i look back at my old self and then i look in the mirror, and i see a fighter looking back at me. i'll always keep fighting, and encouraging others to stay strong. we all go through hell every now and then but it makes us the warriors of love we were meant to be. so to anyone struggling, it gets better. you're not alone.
