Ashley Rickards recently got her first tattoo, and the “Awkward” star has a great story to go with it. She ended up getting an infinity symbol on the back of her neck, but she didn’t know how she wanted the tattoo to look until she got to the parlor.

“I woke up and I called my friend and I was like, I think I need to get a tattoo, so I just met him and we went to this tattoo place,” she tells PopSugar. “You like look up the image and pick it out, and I picked it out.”

There were other people in the tattoo parlor getting inked up, and Rickards says she turned to them to help her decide which infinity symbol to get.

“I’ve wanted that since I was 14, and I literally told the strangers to pick out — because there are millions of types of ways you can I do it, and I literally told them, ‘Pick it.’ And they picked it,” she explains.

“Awkward” returns with the second half of Season 3 on Oct. 22 at 10:30 p.m. ET.
