Although we may not know a whole lot about her private life, one thing we do know is that she loves tattoos. Dakota Johnson's latest tattoo of a flower is actually not perfect -- but in a good way!


According to the actress's tattoo artist, Brian Woo (aka Doctor Woo), the new piece of ink is "a little f*cked up." He debuted Johnson's delicate new tattoo on his Instagram page earlier this week.

The small flower tat on her forearm is inspired by the work of early 20th century Austrian painter Egon Schiele. It's a little wilted, but that was actually done on purpose.

Woo's caption for the photo quoted Johnson saying, "It's a lil f*cked up, but it's still a flower, like me."

We absolutely love it, especially since it has such an important message attached to it. It's a reminder that despite our flaws, we're still beautiful.

And, as reported by Hello Giggles, Schiele specialized in Expressionist paintings that "focus on the complexity of human beings and our ever-changing emotional states." So yeah, Johnson definitely knew what she was doing when she decided to get this cute new tattoo.
