lea michele is delighting fans and admirers with a nude photoshoot for Women’s Health UK and, to accompany the pictures, the former Glee actress is talking about getting fit and living a healthy life. 

While all of that is inspiring to her millions of followers, those fans of Glee have been drawn to a secret tattoo, one which Lea is only now revealing.

Lea Michele poses nude and Glee fans love her for it

In helping Women’s Health UK celebrate its annual Naked Issue, Ms. Michele has bared her impressively fit form for the issue’s cover.

While fans, new and old, have been drawn to the magazine specifically for Lea’s pictures and accompanying article, it was her Glee fans who have found the most to love about the issue. 

In the cover image, Michele bares more than her body.

She reveals a tattoo that reads “Finn,” which, of course, refers to the Glee character played by her ex-boyfriend and former co-star, the late Cory Monteith.

Fans of the series will recall that Rachel Berry, the character played by Michele, received a similar tattoo in season 5 of Glee

Lea was fond enough of the tattoo that she had it permanently placed on her lower hip. The inked hip can be seen on the Women’s Health cover, along with much more.

This isn’t the first tattoo on Lea’s body to pay tribute to Monteith. She has several more, including the number 5, which pays tribute to Finn’s high school football jersey.

That 5 can be found inked under her arm. Also, Ms. Michele has the last words ever spoken between her and Monteith, "I love you more. If you say so...," tattooed just over her rib cage.

While Lea still misses Cory, she reveals that she’s been able to get herself back into a good place in her life.

"Right now, I feel physically in my best shape, and emotionally in my best place...I'm not perfect. I'm not trying to represent myself as being some perfect girl, but I love myself, flaws and all."

As for the “Finn” tattoo, Ms. Michele says it’s not a new ink job. The Scream Queens star tweeted to her fans that the tattoo is five years old now, having had it done in December of 2011.
