So yeah, that’s a leopard with wings wearing a crown. Does it have a beak? I don’t even know.
Here’s what Snooki had to say about it on her blog:
I haven’t mentioned or showed anyone besides Jionni this tattoo! I got this last week when we shot our final Jersey Shore reunion :( My fierce leopard tattoo. I wanted to get this because to me it represents being a strong independent woman, and obviously I love leopards/leopard print! The crown represents being a queen and being fabulous, and the wings represent everyone who has passed in my family. Anytime I can incorporate my loved ones who have passed, I do it! This tattoo also will always remind me of getting it while being in LA shooting our FINAL reunion of Jersey Shore. This tattoo was done by my one and only favorite artist in LA ,Bryce Oprandi, at the The Martlet Tattoo!
This is her sixth tattoo, and she said that every Monday, she’s going to be revealing another tattoo and the story behind it. And that’s how Monday just became my favorite day of the week.
Let’s just get right down to it: it’s the C word. C-nt. See? It’s so bad that our advertisers don’t want us to use it. Everybody hates that word, it seems.
Here’s what Snooki said:
Ok, that’s fair, but I kind of love the word, to be honest. I like the way it sounds, and I like to have something extra intense to pull out if needed. I also like the way that, every time I say it, my BFF goes “ewwwww, stop, ugh,” because she feels the same way that Snooki feels. It’s not because she’s offended on some feminist level, it’s because she just really hates the way it sounds. Isn’t that neat?
And while this discussion has definitely happened before, I always think it’s interesting to hear what people think about the word. Some people think it’s horrible, and that to use it is harmful to all people who possess a literal vagina. Some people think that it’s something to reclaim, like some awful slur that they need to take back. But I kind of just really like the way it sounds.
I can’t even believe it, guys. Do you know that it’s been over a month since we last talked about Snooki? Do you remember the times when a day or two couldn’t go by without some crazy Snooki story dominating the news? Gosh. I guess she really would rather talk politics than get wasted these days.
And in all honesty? There’s really no story here, either—I just wanted to know what you thought about her outfit. It’s way, way better than some other things that she’s worn in the past (like this):
Awful, right? So awful that there’s actually a whole gallery of Snooki’s worst outfits down there, but hey. What do you think about today? Are you feeling Snooki ’12?
