Last week, rumors of Dolly Parton's alleged tattoos began rumbling once again. So, during her appearance on the "Today" show on Tuesday, May 13, the blonde bombshell, who hasn't been since in short sleeves in decades, came clean about her ink.

"People said the other day that the reason you wear sleeves is that you have snake tattoos all over you, and I said, 'No, I don't,'" the Steel Magnolias star told host Savannah Guthrie. "I do have a few little tattoos, but they were mostly done to cover scars because I'm so fair."

The 68-year-old, who just released her 42nd album, continued, "So it started with that, and I'm not really one to have tattoos, but I do have a few and they're not where you can see them ... They're mostly for my husband, [Carl Thomas Dean]."

There you have it, folks!
