About the artist
Lorine Talhaoui - aka Loreen - needs no introduction to Eurovision devotees.
Loreen first broke onto the Swedish music scene by competing in the local version of Idol in 2004, where she finished 4th. She then worked as a TV presenter and behind the scenes of various reality shows before she rebooted her singing career in 2011 and competed in Sweden's national competition, Melodifestivalen.
After just missing out on the final that year, she returned in 2012 with 'Euphoria' and went all the way to win Melodifestivalen earning the right to represent Sweden at Eurovision in Azerbaijan.
Loreen's entry 'Euphoria' was an instant hit with the audience and the juries - and the song romped its way to victory in the Grand Final scoring 372 points.
About the song
'Tattoo' was written by Loreen in conjunction with Jimmy Thörnfeldt, Jimmy Jansson, Moa Carlebecker, Peter Boström and Thomas G:son.
The song is a slickly-produced up-tempo track combining tender moments with a banger of a chorus. Loreen has previously described 'Tattoo' as a "love song" with "energy and power" and "depth".
'Tattoo' has already hit No.1 on the Swedish charts and is currently sitting in 23rd on Spotify's playlist of the Eurovision Top 100 most played songs of all time.
