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.
