The ink spells “Finn” on her left butt cheek, the name of Monteith’s Glee character, Finn Hudson.

Fans of the on- and offscreen couple were pleasantly surprised to hear the tattoo is not new. Michele took to Twitter revealing she got the ink back in 2011, prior to Monteith’s death. “Actually got that tattoo in December 2011!” tweeted the actress. “Boy was that a fun night!”

Michele has two other tattoos in honor of Monteith, who died three years ago due to drug overdose. Michele first revealed a number 5 tattoo, the football number of Monteith’s character in Glee. The actress also has “If you say so” inked on her ribcage, referencing her single of the same name written about Monteith from her 2013 album Louder
