Zac Efron's ex Vanessa Hudgens flaunted a new companion at last night's L.A. premiere of her film "Beastly": a tiny butterfly on her neck. Hudgens got the insect art during a recent visit to New York City and told CNN she couldn't wait to show it off.
“I've actually wanted it for years, and it kind of spontaneously happened...I'm all for spontaneity," she said.
The name "Vanessa" reportedly means "butterfly," according to Just Jared Jr, and it was Hudgens's pal, Australian MTV VJ Ruby Rose, who convinced her to get inked at New York's popular Bang Bang.
"Please don't blame me, but I may have convinced Vanessa Hudgens to get a tattoo... Now. Her first. By Bang Bang," Rose tweeted on February 16.
For her part, Hudgens, who wore a multicolored gown to the premiere, couldn't be more thrilled with her new body adornment.
"It matches my dress," she told CNN.
You could definitely see your enthusiasm within the work you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart.
a pearl necklace would go great with that butterfly
For some reason two comments from me about CNN was omitted because maybe they can't handle the truth!
I think its absolutely beautiful
How can it be spontaneous if she's "actually wanted it for years?" Duh. Another under-educated, overpaid teenager.
@ D... Like the last part of your last comment ...lol
lol thanks I get irritated when people run their mouths and don't even know what the heck they're talking about.
She is a grown woman so what if she got tattoos I got 7 tattoos and it don't make me trashy I like the tattoo
im sure she couldnt care less about why u pathetic low lifes think. She is more beautiful and has more money & success than you negative people will ever see. But i guess talking bad about someone u dont even know makes u feel better about your own trailor trash self!
Who is she, why is this news?
Wth is with everyone saying this ink will look bad when she gets old? Even on 90 year olds, I have never seen a wrinkled or saggy back of the neck. Besides, even you conservative judmental jerks will be wrinkled up. Us girls with tattoos will just be a little more colorful and interesting when we are!
Those that have an issue with this ADULT getting a tat, you'd rather she "lash" out by drinking & driving, stealing expensive jewelry, smoking fake weed, and myriad of other (much), much worse ways? Big or small, its on HER body, not yours. And if you don't like it, its your right, but then don't read this ENTERTAINMENT article and look at photos of the tat.
Next time she should just get a decal or one of those kids butterfly bandages that you can remove. That tattoo is one of the most fugly that I've ever seen, and she will definably regret it someday.
Great another teen showing how low class she is not that anyone needed a reminder after the nude photos that made the net. And did the writer not see the picture attached to the article? The writer called the tattoo "tiny". The thing covers half her small neck.
Tattoos, in my opinion, are a major turnoff. You could be the most attractive woman on the planet, but as soon as you show me or tell me that you have a tattoo, I'm no longer interested.
You ever notice how people with tattoos never judge the people who choose not to have tattoos.
Get a life people.
she should get a tat of a lizard on the other side. they're popular in mesa, az with the trailer park kids
and you would know, alaska ron? your F AGG OT ass is probably there or from there and you b! tch A-SS momma that you hate lives there
Why do yall care if she got a tattoo? Why is she trash if she wanted to get the tattoo? it is HER BODY! she can do whatever she wants to do! if she wants to cover her body with tattoos she can its her decision not yours. I have tattoos myself and im getting another. Why is what she does your business anyway?
the tat looks nice. But, I confess I think most tats don't look so great as time marches on. What seemed like a good idea when your twenty might not be such a good idea 20 years later.
when her skin sages with age,that tattoo will look like a pair off eighty year old nuts!
it is a little big.... but thats obviously what she wanted and thats all that really matters here!!! its her decision and her body!! i give her props for being unique in her way... not like everyother young celebrity out there getting d.u.is snorting drugs or sleeping with every man known to t.v!! a tatt... wow people let her be who she is!! her way of showing a little expression!! you go vanessa!! be yourself!!
Come on people!! who are you to judge?!? its her body.. her life.. so its her decision on what she wants to do with it. if she was not a celebrity would you really care? being you are so judgemental you probably would huh?!? i bet more than half of you judging her has done a few things in life to be judged too. like a baby out of wedlock.. dropped out of school.. done a few drugs and or you have a tatt yourself! my occupation is a tattoo artist and we the artist look at it as a form of expression... art!! sit back and think about things you have done in your life before you start judging someones free will!!!!
“'I've actually wanted it for years, and it kind of spontaneously happened...I'm all for spontaneity,' she said." Nothing like those years-in-the-making decisions to add a little spontaneity to one's life.
WHO IN DA TRAP
I think I am going to puke!
Five years from now, the biggest growth industry will be tattoo removal.
WOW HOW SAD ITS JUST A TAT JUST ABOUT EVERYONE HAS THEM
Fifty years from now the butterfly will look like a bat or the letter X.
I think all yal is stupid and need a life
For the record... I'm 33. I'm female. I have a master's degree. I own the house I live in and a few more. I also bought and paid for my own tattoos. Somehow I manage to be a productive, classy, tax paying citizen. (and for the record... I've never lived in a trailer) Crazy huh? Tattoos don't make you trashy.... But obviously there are some people here who couldn't recognize worth if it slapped them in the face. They apparently don't feel as though they had very much or they wouldn't need to be condemning others for choices that are, quite frankly, none of their business.
Sounds to me like your white trash who is in denial.
And you're gay
This is news worthy? no wonder why the rest of the globe thinks we are all unintelligent idiots
Who cares if she got a tattoo. She already has one on her back. Its not like she doesnt have the money to cover it up! U guys need to worry about ur selves rather then her!
Oh girl its pretty I tink u look asom
So what she got a tattoo...people get em everyday
I'd hardly call it "tiny" ...
I'm one of those older professional women who would love to have a tattoo in a place where no one could see it unless I wanted them to. But I'm chicken!! Once it's there, it's there. I've always been afraid I'd regret it a few years later.
For those who want them, go for it but don't get upset if not everyone is as happy about it as you are!!.
"Vanessa" doesn't mean butterfly. It was invented by Jonathan Swift, author of Gulliver's Travels, and was later used as a genus name for butterfly. It's like saying Franklin means stove.
We all know that that's not the Real Rebel. Stop steaking peopls names. You stole the names Jade, T-rex, Beautiful Vixen, Rebal and more.
Yikes... it's big and its ugly ... why would she want that thing on her neck
So i make 100k a year on average and have a tatoo. Does that mean i am at the bottom of our society and my tatoo is the chinese symbol of love because love is all you need in life does that me stupid a low life?
A neck tattoo to me means there is not much there above the neck.
Hey, at least she got something somewhat meaningful to her and didnt just tattoo her name or some random fish or bird because it was cool. yea it probable could have stood to be a little smaller but big woop, its already done. as for her age, who cares, im 21 and ive already got 2 tattoos and im working on a 3rd one bujt they all mean something to me. at least have some respect that she cot something semi meaningfull and not just something cool is all im sayin
Hopefully it's temporary. Tattoos are simply low class.
Tattoos are low class? To me what's low class is judging someone with a tattoo! I have 4 and like most who get them they are very meaningful to me. If you don't like them that's fine they aren't on your body, but to say they are low class...ignorance at its finest!
I agree. Tattoos are for the lower echelons of society – the bottom feeders, and such.
You're low class.
oh no vanessa! no!
oh no vannessa! no!
Only idiots get neck tattoo's . Stupid,stupid,stupid !
Checking out her nude photos again, NICE.
Y'ALL JUDGIN PPL ON HERE IS STUPID AND YOU NEED TO WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE AND ENJOY LIFE HATIN WILL GET YOU NOWHERE IN LIFE

Don't throw stones if you live in a glass house. Judge not lest Ye be judged. Everyone here needs to take a step back and evaluate their lives this is a sad snapshot of our world.
LOL TATTOOS EQUAL TRASH LOL BLOWIN SOUR ALL DAY CHECK IT POP POP
I'd like to get her something else for her neck – a pearl necklace.

U guys r ridiculous I have tattoos. Say what ur typing to my face and u will have to have ur jaw wired after I crush it with my fists of fury. F all u haters usuk and u r all sad pathetic nerds
Empty threats from an illiterate. Enjoy a lifetime of minimum wage and poverty. And meth.

David needs to get a real life. Hey D, is your life that miserable that you have to make-up assinine generalizations on people with tattoos? Crawl back under the rock from which you came!
How was what I said a asinine generalization? I was responding to the idea from other bloggers that people who have tatoos are smoking, drinking, trailer trash people with no class. I was pointing out just 1 example about how that is innacurate, and I think you're just one of those people who missed my point- because I actually wasn't making any generalizations. Read the post slowly this time so you understand what I said you stupid, pessimistic F***.
I guess the tat I have as well as all my fellow Marine brothers & sisters who have earned the right to get the Eagle & Anchor tat are trashy?
The same people who are keeping our country safe.
What about all the firefighters who have tats symbolizing and proudly showing off their dedication in being a firefighter?
Tattoos is an art form and a way for people to express themself, and have been around for centuries.
Let the girl be if she wants a butterfly, then let her have a butterfly.
The only reason you guys are giving her flack is because she is a celebrity in the public eye.
Get a life.
Tats are for losers, plain and simple. With the exception of indigenous cultures.
Thanks, USMC NCC 1701-E! :-) (Trekkie and Marine in one name, awesome!)
As for you, Wolfgang, get a life. Tattoos are here to stay. :-p
I know, right? I'm also in the military. I've been to Iraq. I've served in foreign countries. Heck, I'm in one right now. Unless I wear a certain type of clothes, you wouldn't even know I have tattoos. I guess I am trash for having one though. People are seriously stupid.
@ jessica tattoos will never be unpopular! and to everyone else just cuz sumone gets a tattoo does not make them trailer trash or worthless!!! u just wish u had sum work done u gotta have money to get tatted period!! tattoos are a form of art so F$%k all u that are obiviously jealous u dont have ne money to get one... enough said.
When you're old enough to work the pole, you'll be a natural.
Its Pretty Cute Get Over It Shes Young Let Her Do Wat She Wants Wit Her Body ! Goodness
Really? People with tattoos are generally smokers and live in trashy tailers? Wow. I have a tattoo and don't smoke and live in apartment. I must be doing something wrong.
Really nice but I don't like u!!!!!!
really david i bet u have a lil baby infant penus peer pressure is that why you blow old men you idiot
How can she be his "ex" when he's gay?
Tat's arent trashy...only some are distasteful and this one really isn't...my own mother has a tatoo (little lizzard on her foot) and she is an engineer with a masters degree in her profession.
Man y iz yallz b hatin? Iz hatez it whenn haterz bee all hatin on stuff an stuff!!!!!!! I bee a hater hater yizzall!! OMGee!!!!!!
The thing that people don't consider when getting a tat, is that while it can look nice on youthful skin, it will look ridiculous in middle age and when you're a senior citizen. Getting tattooed is a very short-sighted decision that most people will regret later in life.
Yeah but I think a someone who is old that is tatted up would be more interesting then someone who isn't.
Damn!, I thought she was gonna get "my name is Vanessa" (written upside down) to go with her tramp stamp.
In the words of great comedian Todd Barry: Neck tattoos. Man, I feel like going up to everyone with a neck tattoo and saying, "Hey, you forgot to not do that."
First off she is 19 not 23 and its her body... Angelina Jolie, ,Alysaa Milino, Megan Fox and many other BEAUTIFUL Hollywood starlets have them. To bring politics into the conversation is moronic. I know many wonderful people who have Tats including me. The trailer park remark is uncalled for i know many hard working men and women who live in trailer parks, and they are all clean well kept HOMES. Sorry if everyone isn't rich enough to afford a House. But a Home is what you make of it, i have friends that live in multi-million dollar homes and they are no differnt than my friends that live in trailer parks. By A.J.
Do math much? Info I found on her says she was born in 1988.
I think it's Cool?#!? them Hater we got them ever were
That's not what I would call tiny.
I had to look up who she was, and I found she is only 22 or 23...yet she's already had lip filler injected! If you doubt it, compare the above photo to earlier pics of her. That is so sad! There is a beauty to a young face (and lips) that you can never attain later in life. She is a fool to destroy that fragile prettiness.
Its her body not yours get over it already.
I'm sure this is something she'll never regret!! (sarcasm)
The slag tag has moved up.
I believe she is Filipina and white. She doesn't live in a trailer park. What difference does it make whether she has one or a thousand tattoos? Why so many hateful comments?
A butterfly whats the point
Umm...where are her clothes?! U don't need to strip down for a neck tattoo!
Jake, you do need to remove your shirt for a tat that large. There would be a lot of blood. Notice she has a large surgical pad taped across her front.
What girl looks at her own neck and thinks, "Man, I really need to improve on God's work. Maybe some stupid piece of generic crap from a tattoo's parlor's wall will do it." It's beautiful as-is.
I've got the same question about the female lower back, but I'll stay on topic here.
who cares what who got where? what about the economy, missing kids, etc...
You're looking for the other blog
How dumb and disgusting
Good for her. I have a little ink and a couple of body piercings and I say if you do it right enjoy it. It's tasteful and she can hide it with her hair or a turtleneck / scarf if she wants. Good choice.
For all u ppl being so disgusting....dont hate someone if the real problem is u would give your 3rd leg to f*** them and u know u dont stand a snowballs chance in hell. i personally like her tat. i have one myself. mine is a memorial. do u hate me and think im trash too? please ppl for the love of whats left of the sanity of this falling apart country...PLEASE check yourselves! its a dam tattoo!
All this hate about a tat on a person u will never meet! SMDH
Who is this girl? She sure has a pretty mouth tattoo or no tattoo.
Really, people? Really? I think the tattoo is cute, I have no problem with them. how does Vanessa Hudgens getting a tattoo affect you? that's right, it doesn't. she got a tattoo and marked her body. deal with it.
Really? A tattoo? I don't thing vanessa has thought about what her tattoo is gonna look like on her when she's old and wrinkled.
She got her what the black folks call a chicken neck tattoo.
Actually she is right about the meaning of her name. Checked a few baby books and baby name sites and it is a Greek name meaning butterflym Check the link here: http://www.babynamescountry.com/meanings/Vanessa.html
Comment moderater PLEASE FOR ONCE IN UR LIFE do ur damm job. Commentary on this pg. highly innappropriate. BBC doesnt have trash talk like this. UR NOT THE BBC clearly!
Tattoos on women are like ugly grafitti on beautiful natural landscapes. And in a few years it will just look like a big ink blob. What a waste.
More like sans personality......
If u want the BBC move to the UK.. here in America we have something called the first amendment..
I totally agree. What are these morons thinking by doing this to their precious bodies. I am a guy and I sure as hell would not get one. I bet she is a smoker too. Most tattoos folks are smokers. This tells me they conform to peer pressure because of insecurity.
Vanessa is a genus of butterflies. for those idiots who dont know, don't talk.....
Nice tat v...call me
Tattoos are gross. SUCK IT!
Some of YOU are childish idiots. Sheep. I applaud her for having individuality. Every tat is unique. Unlike some of you morons.
Unfortunatly this one isn't very unique
Individuality?? Really? Been living under a rock for the past ten years?
After those naked pictures of her came out, it's hardly surprising that she's done something this trashy.
"I bet she is an Obama voter". Um, what does that have to do with this? How does which presidential candidate Vanessa Hudgens voted for in 2008 link to her decision to get a butterfly tattoo in 2011? You are an idiot.
That tattoo is a little big for the neck. I think she is the next Britney Spears...Pretty & Young with a hot boyfriend(Zac Effon) now that they broke up after a few years just like Britney and Justin now watch shes going to start going crazy and fall apart just like britney did but not before she gets married in vegas, divorsed married again and pops out 2kids then jus completely looses it!
Well if you were from ALABAMA like me you would be able to judge who is trashy looking or not. I have seen some pretty ugly looking girls in my trailer park. Thats why sometimes i just date the guys.
They're tighter, too.
Vanessa iso the name for a genus of butterflies.
And why is she white trash for a tattoo? Get over yourself.
She isn't white trash for her tattoo, she's trash because her only claim to fame is having the majority of the internet seeing multiple nude pictures of her.
tattoos have always been considered "low class". it will be interesting to see what happens when all the gen x, gen y people hit 40 or 50 and realize what a huge mistake it was to get tribal tats to look "cool" in their 20's. seriously folks. if you're getting tattoos because you like ink that's one thing, but marking yourself up to follow fashion is just incredibly stupid.
You guys are horribly judgmental. Please worry about you're own lives.
Really vanessa a tattoo. u have a life big time. and in what language does ur name mean butter fly??
Clearly not in whatever language YOU're typing in (which is not English as it was taught to me!)
It's the name of a genus of butterflies. Google it.
I bet she is an obama voter. Dont worry honey as soon as tattoos are not popular anymore you'll be the first in line for tattoo removal.
The tat is a little on the big side for the area on her. Tats are not for everyone- Tats do not define class either.
Shes hot...tattoo or not!
The article described it as tiny. That thing's pretty big! Yuck.
yeah i was thinking the same thing. iv'e seen tiny tattoos and thats not tiny.
I was thinking the same thing. This is NOT a small tat!
She wants a tattoo? Let her get the tattoo. Seems fairly discrete to me. I just don't get why this is "news." I don't even know (or care) who she is!
Yet you took time out of your busy day to let an Internet full of strangers know that you don't care. Sure about that?
Gotta love the "is this news? I couldn't care less!" crowd who never fail to actually waste time posting about something they allegedly know, or care, nothing about. Some folks here at CNN.com have elevated it to an art form. When I don't know, or care, about something, I typically don't make an effort to let everyone else know it. I just kinda ignore it...
This is the entertainment section u idiots!
makes her kind of look like the gurls on jersey shore. maybe that snooci one.
You're an idiot
You are just a hater, and a big idiot
Nahhhh.........Snooki's cuter. Smarter, too.
That's who I thought it was as soon as I saw the picture.
she sure is an idiot. it makes her look all trashy. it also makes her look alot heavier.
English: Learn it.
Now...In what language does "Vanessa" mean "butterfly", exactly? I call, "Horse-Pooky"!
Take it for what it is worth
Only Euro names don't mean anything. Or you all have lost the meaning of them.
Says who Stoney? Someone with a name that sounds like silverware hitting the pavenment?
She's an idiot!
Oh I like it. Very pretty :)
The butterfly is fitting, as "Vanessa" means butterfly, and there are tons of butterflies in my stomach when I look at this girl. Goodness, she's so pretty.
I never saw an image that I wanted scrawled, burned or poked into my one and only body for a lifetime.
everyone has them now.. it's really not news folks.. my grandmother has one above her butt now.. seriously
Tattoos make women look cheap, no matter how they try to justify it. The look no better on men, either. Need to remind yourself of something? Use a post-it note, or develop some long-term memory. FFS, people are dumb.
Another version of the tramp stamp. When will these folks stop marking up their bodies. In 30 years that butterfly will look like a sick moth.
and she would be much better looking without the tattoo.
Get a life
Couldna said it better myself...
Please get an education and learn spelling and grammar. Reading your post is like trying to read the ramblings of a retarded gimp. My dog can express himself better than you.
@STATG – C'mon, she's a thirteen year old wannabee from East Bent Twig, Montana... cut her some slack on the spelling and grammar stuff.
