"Everyone keeps asking me about this. I hide my stomach tattoo and I'm getting all my little ones lasered off," she said in a YouTube video. "My stomach tattoo is very sentimental. When my brother died, I was pregnant with my firstborn. SO after he was born I got a tribute on my stomach."
The detailed black-and-white geometric design has her brother's name in the middle with the words "forever young" written below.
"I may or may not post a close-up one day, but it's very sentimental to me," she added. "Even with bikinis I'll wear a one-piece or put a sarong over it."
During the series, the TV bride ensured her stomach was always concealed and even wore a pair of high waisted shorts while going for a swim in her ex-husband, Michael Goonan's pool.
Stacey also revealed in the video that she's been "struggling" to find work since filming wrapped, admitting she's been turned away from several law firms because she wishes to work part-time.
"A lot of people ask why I'm not using my law degree, but not many law firms like to take on people who only want three days a week," said the single mum who shares sons Kosta and Kruz, with her ex.
"If I did five days a week then I feel like I'm not being fair on my children and I'm not there for them. Being a single parent has impacted me quite a lot, but I'm also so blessed and wouldn't have my life any other way."
