True Paris Jackson TattoosParis Jackson has made headlines lately about her new tattoos. The 18-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson received some heat from critics about the 23 pieces of art covering her body. But now the young starlet is taking to Instagram to explain the reasoning behind her new addiction. "The craftsmanship of tattoos will always be a controversy. some people like them, some people absolutely hate them," she captioned a photo of her sporting a Motley Crue shirt and a smile. "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." Jackson has reportedly attempted suicide in the past and was a known cutter. "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," she writes. "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."
