Calling all Stieg Larsson fans! Check out the new Funny Or Die video, “The Girl With The Tramp Stamp Tattoo.” Doe-eyed Emma Roberts stars as a trashy, lush version of Salander (complete with a “Breathe” tramp-stamp) and “True Blood” hottie Joe Manganiello plays a bespectacled Blomkvist. For all those unfamiliar with Manganiello, a Google search of “Joe Maganiello shirtless” is required. You can thank me later. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »
Having a “tramp stamp” doesn’t make you a tramp at all, it makes you a person who made a bad decision at some point in your high school/college years. (Not to imply all lower back tattoos are bad decisions. Just, um, a lot of them.) I should know. I have one. My Chinese symbol for the word “Angel” was acquired two months before my 18th birthday at a hole-in-the-wall tat shop on Bleeker Street. I was a Freshman at NYU and I mostly got the regrettable tattoo because I was pumped that they didn’t card me. I know, really solid reason to get inked for life. Nowadays, my stamp makes me cringe, but at least it’s well hidden … most of the time. Ben Affleck probably feels similarly sheepish after he accidentally revealed his tramp stamp while getting his daughter out of the car. It’s a dolphin, which he got to cover up the name of a high school girlfriend. Geez, I don’t know which is more embarrassing. I feel for him. Click on through to see more celebs with tramp stamps.

Sometimes a girl just gets sick and tired of all the cutesy little words and phrases that exist to describe women. I mean, cougar? Puma? Cheetah? Who can keep them all straight?
Depending on the situation, most of my life I’ve been called either a “princess” (for wanting what I want when I want it) or a “femi-Nazi” (for being a feminist with thoughts and opinions).
Oh, but one lucky day I’ll be called a M.I.L.F., or even “a woman of a certain age.” Can you tell that I just can’t wait?
We at The Frisky put our pretty little heads together and made a list of 17 words and phrases about women and girls that we’re just sick and tired of hearing. Won’t you let us know which ones you’re done with, too? Keep reading »
While women like the cool Kat Von D of LA Ink are responsible for the rise in tattoos, ladies are still feeling the backlash from going under the needle. A 2006 survey conducted by Texas Tech found that while 25% of people ages 18-30 have a tattoo, 40% of women with works of art feel social pressure to get them removed. Compared to 5% of men who claim they’ve been teased, it seems like the new glass ceiling is a bit more skintimate. Now, we can understand if a lady regrets an eBay auction where she sold a casino the right to tattoo their URL on her forehead, but overall, it’s disheartening that we can’t get our lower back tattooed without it being called a tramp stamp. Let’s unite and take back the lower back tat for classy women! You know if Paris Hilton doesn’t want a trendy tat, especially one inherently nicknamed for sluts, then they must only be for the supremely lady-like! [LA Times via Fark]
