Butterfly Tattoo

Album: The Rebirth (2009)
  • djbooth.net asked Valentino if he really liked the women who have butterfly tattoos. The R&B singer replied: "Nah – it's the essence of where that song comes from, and, really, that song comes from the strip club. That's where the whole concept came from. I know that a lot of people have tattoos, and a butterfly tattoo is definitely a popular tattoo to have, but I kinda got the idea in the strip club. You know, some women have butterfly tattoos actually on their booty, know what I'm saying? It's more of a creative edge, it's more of a fantasy than anything."
