Girls star Lena Dunham is as controversial as her character on the popular show. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind, and she doesn’t care what people think of her, which some fans appreciate, and others resent. Things were no different when the actress revealed her new body art – a tattoo on the back of her head with the word “sick.”
The actress has been coping with a chronic illness for some time now, and this tattoo is evidently a homage to her illness and an attempt to embrace it. We feel as if the rope design of the letters symbolizes the ropes of the illness that won’t let go, but that’s just our interpretation. Comments were controversial, from people applauding her courage, to people saying this tattoo is reducing the person behind the disease.
