Dolly Parton's Tattoos: "flowers or little butterflies"

"I got them to cover scars or things," the singer said. "If I have to get a scar for any reason, I never can kind of get rid of that purple look. So I thought, 'Well, I'm going to kind of decorate these with some flowers or little butterflies or whatever." It seems as though the famous country music star uses her ink as a sort of cover up!
