'Breaking Dawn' Soundtrack Artist Christina Perri Explains Her 'Twilight' Tattoo

Christina Perri is a really big Twilighter. So, having her song, "A Thousand Years," on the "Breaking Dawn- Part 1" soundtrack, out November 10, is a pretty big deal for the singer. MTV News was on the set for Christina's just-released video, and while there, the 25-year-old opened up about showing her love for the saga in a completely different way: her "Twilight"-themed tattoo!


"It's right here [on my wrist]," she said. "So it says 'bitten,' and if you're a Twi-hard like me, you would know it's in the font of the books, and I basically got this tattoo right when I read the books and became totally obsessed with the series. It's my most dorky moment."

What does the tat mean to Christina? "Well, I liked it because I felt like instead of anything real graphic, it just implies I've been bitten by the series," she explained. "That I'm apart of the club."

Christina actually got the ink while on a "Twilight"-related trek, taking in all things Edward and Bella. "I went up to Portland, where they filmed the first movie, and then I went and got the tattoo in Portland," she said, adding that she isn't sure she'll get any more saga-related markings.

"I don't think so," she teased. "I, unfortunately, don't think too far in advance before I get a tattoo. I can't say no, but I don't have any in mind. I would probably get Edward, just kidding. I don't know. I'd have to think about it."
