MANILA – Lovi Poe has tattoos and that’s no secret to her avid followers. But what they actually mean is something not everybody is aware of.

Until this past weekend when Poe answered one netizen who asked her why she had herself inked.

According to Poe, all her tattoos are actually related to her relationship with her father, late actor Fernando Poe Jr.

“My wings & my gravity, I call it the balance. It’s about my dad. He makes me fly but pulls me back to the ground,” she said about one of her tattoos.

For the other one, Poe explained: “Quiet Child. Again, about my dad cause not a lot of people know our story.”
