Los Angeles, Jan 2 (IANS) Reality TV star Snooki has acquired a new piece of body art - a winged leopard. This is her sixth tattoo.

The flying cat is a commemoration of TV show "Jersey Shore", says Snooki, reports

Snooki, 25, met other members of the show for their last reunion, and so to mark the occasion, she got herself inked with a "fierce leopard tattoo".

She says she acquired the inking around mid-December 2012, and insists there are hidden depths behind the design.

"I haven't mentioned or showed anyone besides Jionni (fiance Jionni LaValle) this tattoo! I got this last week when we shot our final 'Jersey Shore' reunion. My fierce leopard tattoo. I wanted to get this because to me it represents being a strong independent woman, and obviously I love leopards/ leopard print," said Snooki.

"The crown represents being a queen and being fabulous, and the wings represent everyone who has passed in my family. Anytime I can incorporate my loved ones who have passed, I do it. This tattoo also will always remind me of getting it while being in Los Angeles shooting our FINAL reunion of 'Jersey Shore'," she added.
