Lena Dunham is one of the new critical darlings of the summer 2012 TV season. Her quirky and controversial 20-something series on HBO, “Girls”, has been the talk of the TV critics and fans for several months (she’s also the creator, director and writer). Her frank approach to sexuality, nudity and many other topics that can make people squirm are part of the show’s appeal. The ‘true to life’ nerve it hits for that age group is the other part of its appeal.
Lena may not be one’s definition of a typical beauty because she’s not slim, tanned and toned. But, her look is a very real to life one that makes her feel more accessible as an actress. Part of that look includes her very visible tattoos. She has many of them. However, New 2 Tats will just cover her most prominent ones.

However, I do have the story behind it. Her friend (and “Girls” co-star), Jemima Kirke, inked a Yorkshire Terrier tattoo on Lena’s rib cage. Jemima discusses it here in this interview:
