Drew Barrymore, whose tattoos are believed to include a butterfly on her stomach, a cross on her leg, two angels on her lower back and a bouquet of flowers on her hip, has reportedly decided to have the inkings removed as she is becoming more “conservative.

According to Star magazine, the 37-year-old actress wants to ditch her collection of body art to ensure she is taken seriously.

There is also speculation that she made the decision as she is converting to Kopelman’s Jewish faith and cannot be buried in a traditional cemetery till she is tattoo-free, News.com.au reported.

A friend said that Barrymore also wants to be a Santa Barbara mom, and tattoos clash with that wardrobe and that she is growing up and turning conservative.

The former wild child reportedly started undergoing the painful process of removing the etchings recently.
