Bella Poarch opened up about the reason why she has so many tattoos

Though she’s one of TikTok’s top ten most-followed stars, Bella Poarch rarely speaks out about her personal life. This has led to a number of questions about her identity. On Nov. 11, though, Poarch opened up about the surprising reason she’s accumulated quite a bit of ink over the years. “I had a rough childhood. My scars from abuse made me insecure. And so I had to cover up my scars with tattoos,” Poarch responded. Commenters were impressed with her bravery in speaking out against alleged abuse. “This is the biggest reminder to everyone that you never know what someone is or has gone through,” one user said. “I am so sorry. Thank you for sharing. You are so brave in so many ways,” another wrote. Poarch took to the comments of her post to explain why she opened up. “I wasn’t comfortable posting this … but if ur having a hard time rn, just know that ur not alone and you’ll make it through this. U r brave & strong,” she wrote
