The tattoo poem which runs down from the nape of her neck till the middle of her back, reads like this :
This beautiful (?) write-up in form of a body art is her tribute to her favourite animal the horse.
Lewis, flaunted the risque tattoo as she donned a figure-hugging dress at The Love Ball at The Roundhouse, north-west London on 24th Feb 2010.
Leona is often branded dull and mocked as a lacking personality. This is her way of getting out of this image.
One of her friends revealed: “Leona loves tattoos and she felt having a really bold design running the length of her back would have a real impact. She’s seen what other people like Victoria have had done and used her passion for horses as the inspiration. She’s really proud of it and isn’t ashamed to show it off.”
My comments on the above news item :
1.”Compared to other Hollywood beauties, Leona herself looks somewhat horsy” was one comment by a reader. I agree and extend my sympathies to Leona !
2. There are many proverbs connected with horses. Here are some of them which I could recall offhand :

Better ride on ass that carries me, than on a horse that throws me.
For want of a nail the shoe is lost, for want of a shoe the horse is lost, for want of a horse the rider is lost.
Look not a gift horse in the mouth.
You can take a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.
