Inked! Demi Lovato has added a brand-new tattoo to her arsenal: a teeny-tiny smiley face on her pinky finger.

The "Body Say" singer, 23, unveiled the positive-minded body ink, which sits in the top third of her little finger, via her Instagram Sunday, August 7. "Cause life's too short not to tattoo your pinky 😂," she captioned.

The two-pic post flashed between a close-up on her pinky and a glam shot of her head, which also boasted something new: long, curly extensions in her natural raven shade. Lovato, who has been casually dating since splitting from her love of six years, Wilmer Valderrama, in June, also modeled a distressed striped sweater and black skinny jeans.

The "Skyscraper" singer, who's currently on tour with Nick Jonas, is a notorious tattoo lover. She has more than 25 works of body art, including the words "You Make Me Beautiful" across her rib cage and 12 birds flying up one arm (representing the 12 steps she completed post-rehab). She also has "Stay Strong" on her wrists, which she added, as she explained to iHeartRadio in 2014, "So anytime that I would feel triggered to either self-harm or act out in an unhealthy behavior, I could look down at that and stay strong."

The week before the ink reveal, Lovato attended the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, where she gave a powerful speech on mental illness. (Lovato has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and she's dealt with an eating disorder and drug addiction in the past.) Clad in a rhinestone-studded blush dress, she told the audience, "Like millions of Americans, I'm living with mental illness — but I'm lucky. I had the resources and support to get treatment at a top facility. Unfortunately, too many Americans from all walks of life don't get help, either because they fear the stigma or cannot afford treatment. Untreated mental illness can lead to devastating consequences, including suicide, substance abuse and long-term medical issues."

The former Disney Channel star continued, "We can do better. Every one of us can make a difference. By getting educated on this epidemic and its frightening statistics and by breaking the stigma. I urge every politician to support laws that will provide access to better health care and support for everyone. This is not about politics. It's simply the right thing to do."
