There's no denying that girl power is having a long overdue moment. Between many examples of the gender pay gap coming to light, celebrities openly calling themselves feminists, and body positivity taking the place of unachievable #fitnessgoals, in some ways, 2017 has been the year women needed.
And now, there's a permanent way to show your support for girl power, equal rights, and women everywhere.
We're talking about GRL PWR tattoos. Removing the vowels but leaving the meaning, the tiny ink trend is the latest way to celebrate your strength, independence, and power that comes from being a woman.
Talking to Refinery29, Brooklyn-based tattoo artist Lalo Yunda said of the empowering ink trend:
'I get a lot of women who come to get a tattoo and they don't want flowers or any girly shit, they want a permanent symbol of their girl power. For the time in history where we are now, a lot of women feel like they are strong and successful, and they want to celebrate that.'
An inspiring statement that also happens to fit into our obsession with tiny, minimal tattoos? This is our kind of girl gang.
