Ashley Tisdale, the talented actress-singer ofHigh School Musical fame, got a new tattoo Saturday in Hollywood, California. The Daisy dukes-clad 'Kiss the Girl' singer, accompanied by her mother and boyfriend, spent about a half hour inside the Shamrock Tattoo shop, emerging with a bandage on her back. We are still not sure what it reads entirely, it could be the word "bella"? "beta"? "bellisimo"? "believe"? Whatever the word might be, lets just hope it was spelt correctly!

The High School Musical star denies the move was in rebellion against her good-as-gold High School Musical image - insisting her new addition of body art is not naughty or suggestive. "I got a tattoo the other day. It says ‘Believe' and has two stars. It's something my mom has always told me - just to believe. It's not anywhere naughty though," she says. "It's on my back. In the middle on the left."
