Bicep Tattoos

Taraji P. Henson


Actress Taraji P. Henson has a tattoo on her left bicep which reads “The Truth”.
On an interview at the Good Day New York she said, pointing to her tattoo that “You can’t be afraid of your past, or ashamed about it, because that’s what makes you who you are today. Life isn’t easy. As humans we’re all beautifully flawed. No human is perfect”.

    Lena Dunham


    In July 2017, Lena Dunham got a heart tattoo on her inner right inspired by New York doll artist Greer Lankton.  The  “Love Me” heart design appears on the chest of one of Lankton’s dolls. Lena showed off the new ink on her instagram, writing:

    “So I cry, I pray and I beg… Greer Lankton’s last act on earth was this heart. These words were her mantra.”

    Lankton used her own body image issues as the inspiration for her doll sculptures. The artist underwent gender confirmation surgery at the age of 21 and struggled with anorexia throughout her life. The personal nature of her art is what makes it so meaningful to Lena Dunham, who first saw Lankton’s work as a child. She told AnOther:

    “I think Greer’s conflicted emotions about transitioning helped make her work just so emotionally resonant. We all feel that sense of being lost in and betrayed by our own bodies. She made it into poetry.”

    Jana Kramer


    Jana Kramer has two important dates tattooed on the inside of her right arm. “5-22-15” represents her marriage to former NFL tight end Michael Caussin on May 22, 2015. “1-31-16” represents the birth of their daughter Jolie Rae Caussin on January 31, 2016.

    Unfortunately the couple separated in August 2016 due to Michael’s repeated extramarital affairs. He went to rehab for his sex additiction, but it wasn’t enough to hold the family together.

    Jana had been divorced twice previously, first from her abusive ex-husband Michael Gambino and then from actor Johnathon Schaech, but she thought that Caussin would be the one forever.

    She told People: “Mike was the biggest of the betrayals because it was the first time in a relationship where I truly loved the version of me. I didn’t feel I had to prove that I was good enough, I was vulnerable and finally at peace with myself. But I was fooled.”
