Hudgens explained how she’s wanted the tattoo, situated on the back of her neck, for years; butterfly means Vanessa in Latin.
Now that her High School Musical days with Zac Efron are over, Hudgens wants to reinvent herself and leave her Disney reputation behind. She said:
It’s my very first tattoo, and I kind of feel like a badass now!
