This Is Why Tove Lo Tattooed An Actual Vagina On Her Body
And it's a GREAT reason...
We’ve seen some pretty wacky tattoos in our time – hello Just Tattoo Of Us – but have we ever seen a vagine inked on someone? Doubtful.
Sassy Swedish singer Tove Lo has spoken out exactly why she got a vagina symbol put on her arm and it’s kind of a boss reason.
She told Teen Vogue: “My vagina tattoo reminds me not to make myself smaller, which is often what’s expected of women. To be loud is to be seen as being a troublemaker. As girls, we’re often not encouraged to speak up. I’m allowed to claim my space.”
“The symbol, which is also on the cover of my album Lady Wood, is a reminder to go for the things that scare you but also give you a rush.”
And it turns out that Tove is also sick of the expressions that refrence men’s ‘balls’ being a symbol of strength.
“People tell me all the time that I’m a chick with balls. It’s supposed to be a compliment, but really it’s insulting. Women don’t need balls to be brave. Our vaginas will do just fine.”
This reminds us of the words that the amazing Betty White spoke: “Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.”
