Lea Michele’s coffee cup tattoo seemed to us like another shallow, whimsical hipster tattoo, but it holds a special meaning for the actress. The Glee star inked this cup of coffee on the inside of her finger in 2016 as a tribute to her late grandmother. We’ve seen stranger gestures than this, wouldn’t you say?
According to the actress, her grandmother wasn’t a typical grandmother, but a cool one, and she was the one who first allowed Lea to drink coffee, when she was only eight years old. After adding this tattoo to her art collection, the actress shared a photo on Instagram, with the caption, “I lost my beautiful grandma this week.. She wasn’t your typical grandma … She never made pie or knit me a sweater. But she was my grandma and I loved her.”
