Amanda Bynes has shocked fans by unveiling a striking new face tattoo.
The former child star took to Instagram to reveal she’d treated herself to a sketch of a black love heart on her left cheek, just below her eye.
Amanda, 33, didn’t speak any further on her new artwork but left an alien emoji in the caption.
While posing for the selfie, Amanda also showed off her quirky fashion taste displaying her pink hair, khol-lined eyes and septum nose ring.
Earlier this month, the former actress checked out of the sober living facility she had been staying at to return to her parents’ home.
US site The Blast claimed Amanda had “bailed” on the facility and “dropped out of school”, where she was studying fashion design.
Amanda was then pictured heading to court amid reports of a legal battle over her conservatorship.
According to an insider, Amanda wants new conservators to look after her affairs, though she she is keen not to ‘replace her parents.’
A source told the Mail online that Amanda was now doing ‘better’ overall.
The former child star – who rose to fame in the 1990s before appearing in films such as What A Girl Wants, She’s The Man and Hairspray – was one of Hollywood’s hottest talents when drug use led to a downward spiral.
Last year, Amanda gave a candid interview with Paper Magazine where she opened up about her past addictions.
She said: “My advice to anyone who is struggling with substance abuse would be to be really careful because drugs can really take a hold of your life.”
The What A Girl Wants star also told the mag that she’d started smoking marijuana when she was just 16, and then progressed onto harder drugs, including cocaine.
She said: “Everybody is different, obviously, but for me, the mixture of marijuana and whatever other drugs and sometimes drinking really messed up my brain.”
After a string of successful films, Amanda fled the limelight with her last big screen appearance being in 2010s Easy A.
She suffered a public meltdown in 2013 as a result of drug-induced psychosis, and announced her retirement before undergoing a raft of surgery and infamously asking Drake to ‘murder my vagina’ on Twitter .
After falling into a downward spiral, Amanda had a series of run-ins with the law including a drink-driving arrest in 2012 and a marijuana possession charge in 2013.
The same year Amanda was hospitalised on a 72 hour mental health hold after she started a fire in a Los Angeles drive way.
The actress avoided jailtime by completing inpatient treatment and was placed on three years’ probation in early 2014.
Amanda also claimed her father had sexually abused her – though later retracted the claims saying that: “The microchip in my brain made me say those things.”
