It’s common knowledge Lena Dunham does not abide by the Jewish law that forbids inking up your body, but she revealed over the weekend just what drives her passion for tattoos.
In a series of Instagram stories, Dunham shared pictures of her new tattoos and spoke out about how tattooing her body gives her a sense of “control.” While she didn’t elaborate on this sentiment, it’s more than likely that Dunham is referring to her public battle with endometriosis, the disease that kept Dunham from attending her Lenny tour in May.
The star shared two new designs, including a blooming rose and “Kewpie dolls,” which are characters from an old comic strip. Dunham doesn’t shy away from nudity both onscreen and on social media, so her new tattoos, like those of days past, will likely be no stranger to the pop culture-consuming-public soon enough.
You can go directly to Dunham’s Instagram to check out the photos, which are, as per usual, not totally safe for work.
