Sarah Hyland has had a pretty rough year. 

Over the past few months, Hyland has confronted her anorexia bullies, defended her "Modern Family" co-star Ariel Winter against body-shamers, and coped with heartbreak after ending her relationship of two years — all while battling very serious health issues

Even one of these obstacles would be enough to weaken a person's spirit, but Hyland has continued to hold her head high. She navigates through each challenge with confidence, never letting her doubters get the best of her. 

To commemorate her strength, Hyland recently hit up tattoo artist Dr. Woo for some symbolic ink. 

On Tuesday, Hyland unveiled her inspirational ink.

"'The best way out is always through,'" Hyland quoted Robert Front. 

She thanked Dr. Woo for bringing the quote to life without even using words.

Fans loved the meaning behind Hyland's new tattoo.

Of course, Hyland's fans also noticed a suspicious shadow on her booty.

Many people wondered if she got an additional tattoo on her butt.

(But that's just her "dino tat.")

Earlier this month, Hyland posted a cheeky Instagram to show off the matching "booty tattoo" she got with her friend Katie Welch.

Hyland's Frost-inspired tattoo serves as a permanent reminder that she can — and will — get through tough moments.
