Casey Anthony was a huge fan of her Irish American heritage, it has been reported. According to Orlando television station WESH the shamrock was her favorite symbol and she had one tattooed on her lower back.

Reporting on a bag found during the search for missing Caylee, Anthony’s deceased daughter, the station stated that a plastic shamrock was found which investigators said was significant because it was Casey’s favorite symbol.

Tattooist Danny Knight of Cast Iron Tattoos told Fox News that Casey got a shamrock tattoo when she was a teenager.

“I gave her, her first one when she was eighteen. It was a little shamrock on her lower back,” Knight said.

Bobby Williams of Cast Iron Tattoos, who testified during the murder trial, described the young woman as a “regular”, saying she was in the tattoo parlor at least three to four times a year.

While her 2-year-old daughter was offically missing the Floridian woman got "Bella Vita" tattooed on his upper back, meaning "beautiful life" in Italian.

A friend of Casey’s reported that “Casey Anthony had many shamrocks in her life that she has a shamrock tattoo and a shamrock sticker on her car.”

Previously released photos of the 25-year-old show the shamrock tattoo on her back and wearing a shamrock necklace.

After a six week trial, Anthony was acquitted on charges of murder, manslaughter and aggravated child abuse on Tuesday. She was convicted of four misdemeanor counts of lying to police and is set to be sentenced tomorrow.

When the verdict was read out shocked celebrities repsonded via Twitter:

Irish-American comedian Kathy Griffin tweeted: 'Wow.Ok, now this case has my attn. Not guilty? Really? I just assumed.'

Kim Kardashian wrote: 'WHAT!!!!???!!!CASEY ANTHONY FOUND NOT GUILTY!!! I am speechless!!!.'
