When Jennifer Lawrence calls her tattoo “a watered-down rebellion,” she means that in more ways than one.

If you’ve never noticed that the Hunger Games star has a tattoo, you’re probably not alone. It’s hard to spot. It’s the smallest bit of ink on the back of her right hand that reads “H2O,” the chemical symbol for water.

“It’s not like a real tattoo,” she said in an interview with HitFix. “I was like, ‘I’m always going to need to be hydrated. So I guess I should just get ‘H2O’ on my hand.”

Lawrence, 24, explained that she only got inked in the first place because she was hanging out with her Hunger Games costar Liam Hemsworth and his family when the group decided to get tattoos. Lawrence joined in but opted for something inconspicuous. The tattoo is even “scar-colored,” as she puts it.

“It’s literally the most un-rebellious tattoo that anyone could ever get,” she joked, before noting that she’s also aware that the 2 was inked improperly – it should be a subscript, “low” 2 but she mistakenly got a superscript, “high” 2.

“I should have Googled it before I got it tattooed on my body forever,” Lawrence admitted.
