Beatrice Luigi Gomez's wrap-up sleeve tattoo has long been turning heads in the Miss Universe pageant. And during the early portion of the pageant, host Steve Harvey finally got the chance to ask the Cebuana queen the story behind it.
When asked the meaning behind her first tattoo, Bea shared: “So the tattoo you’re talking about is the one I’m wearing on my sleeve. It actually means rebirth and new beginnings. This is a cherry blossom."
"I got it for my 23rd birthday and I got it to celebrate my womanhood.”
Cherry blossoms have long symbolized rebirth and optimism in the tattoo world, as they bloom quickly and only stay for a short period of time during Japan's spring season.
Beatrice also brought up her tattoos during the Q&A portion of Binibining Cebu 2020.
“I guess what makes me beautiful is my bravery and being true to myself. To tell you guys, honestly, I have a girlfriend. I have tattoos, and I am proud of my imperfections. I guess that is what makes me beautiful,” she shared.
Beatrice also got inked with a set of dainty finger tattoos in Cebu City before her Miss Universe run.
