Hilary Duff has a new tattoo, and fans of old Hollywood will recognize its meaning. On Thursday, the 30-year-old actress’s tattoo artist, Dr. Woo, posted an Instagram debuting the star’s fresh ink: a delicate wrist tattoo with the quote “Take Fountain.”
The design nods to a famous quote uttered by television and film legend, Bette Davis. In an interview with “The Tonight Show” host, Johnny Carson, Davis was asked for her advice on the best way to break into Hollywood. Without missing a beat, she replied, “Take Fountain.”
“Fountain” refers to “Fountain Avenue” in Hollywood, California. The avenue is said to be a quicker and more efficient route to travel though Los Angeles and avoid traffic than the streets that parallel it, Santa Monica and Sunset Boulevards
“Just a super tiny reminder on @hilaryduff , one of the best tips when you are driving in LA via #bettedavis 🧐,” Woo captioned the Instagram.
Woo’s Instagram follows Duff’s trip to the artist’s tattoo parlor last week. Along with Duff, the artist has also recently worked with stars like Miley Cyrus and Brooklyn Beckham. “Always a good hang @_dr_woo_,” Duff captioned a boomerang of her sitting in Woo’s tattoo chair.
We’re loving Duff’s new tattoo for multiple reasons. Not only is it super pretty, but it also provides us life-changing advice when driving through Los Angeles. Thanks for the heads up, Hilary.
