Thigh Tattoos

Bishop Briggs


Bishop Briggs has a “traditional Chinese dragon” on the side of her left thigh, by artist @denise_tpinto.
In an interview Bishop said about the artwork: “I love to get spontaneous tattoos so in the moment, I decided that I needed something that reminded me of power. I also loved the idea of dragons having this fire in their bellies but only releasing it in times of danger or protection. I thought it could be a parallel to my life – keep the fire as fuel and use it wisely.”

Lena Dunham


This tattoo of a rose on Lena Dunham’s right thigh is the second inking which she got in quick succession in June 2017.  She shared some pictures of the new rose and the Kewpie dolls on her hip on her instagram story, writing:

“Been tatting myself up like crazy this month. These Kewpies have been on me a few weeks. I think it gives me a sense of control and ownership of a body that’s often beyond my control.”

She suffers from endometriosis and has undergone many surgeries to keep the condition in check. She announced that she was disease-free in April 2017 following her fifth surgery, but unfortunately the disease had spread and she was rushed to the hospital for immediate surgery the following month.
