20 Feminist Tattoos That Scream “Grl Pwr“

Move over feminazis, we're here to show you how feminism is really done with these ass-kicking feminist tattoos done the right way.

With the rise of millennials and their alternative taste for tattoos, it's no surprise that the strong and uprising of pro-equality movements like feminism are expressing their beliefs with these rocking feminist tattoos.

I'm part of the female populace myself and I surely don't tolerate anyone—man or woman—walking over me. But that does not mean I see myself as superior to any other human being in general. Equality's a nice thing to have, but it isn't something that's understood by many. Someone always has to be above somebody in the social order and call it fair because well, f-ck it, rights.

Unlike the image most people conjure up in their heads when they hear the word ‘feminist,’ true feminism “revolves around the principle that just because human bodies are designed to perform certain procreative functions, biological elements need not dictate intellectual and social functions, capabilities, and rights.” Not only women can be feminists, though. Shout-out to the men who are all for this too!

Forget about feminazis, those who somehow got a simple concept mixed up. True feminists are fearless, fierce, independent women who aren't afraid to show the world what they're about. We're loving their feminist tattoos!

If you're a woman who thinks shaving is a real drag, then by all means don't. I don't think you can really be stopped once you chose not to. As long as it makes you happy and you're not hurting anyone really.

Someone has to have this quote plastered on major establishments. Not only does it explain a lot, but it can also be applied to men, as well as women.

Bra slavery, though:

Seriously though, have you ever tried wearing a bra? These things can get so uncomfortable, even when it's the right size. This is why many women can relate to home is where the bra isn't.
