The tattoo on the chest of the model Danny Lopes who appears in the Katy Perry video 'Firework' reads either 'shame' or 'shane' but is not fully visible in the video. It is most likely that the design is a temporary tattoo as it doesn't appear in any of his more recent work.

Background of the song Firework Firework was a single by the popular American artist Katy Perry, taken from her album 'Teenage Dream' (2010).

A song about empowerment and being true to yourself, the video features a number of scenes of people overcoming their inner demons and shyness.

Firstly, it portrays an overweight wallflower finding the courage to undress at a pool party; a leukemia patient managing to overcome her illness, and a magician using his magic tricks to outwit a group of muggers. It also shows a young boy stopping his parents from arguing, and finally a young man finding the courage to approach and kiss a guy he is in love with.
