Busy Philipps has hit back at her haters by adding to her tattoo collection with an edgy “f**k ’em” etching.
The 39-year-old actress, who only got her first inking last year (18), went under the needle once again on Saturday, and shared an image of the new design on her Instagram page.
The tattoo, on Busy’s foot, showed a woman on ice skates skating along the words “f**k ’em” in cursive underneath. The Geoff McFetridge illustration was taken from the talk show host’s memoir This Will Only Hurt A Little, which detailed her time in Hollywood, and she explained: “My favourite illustration drawn by @mcfetridge for my book #thiswillonlyhurtalittle (it’s in the A Movie Script Ending chapter).
‘Tattooed beautifully by @dre.dayli in Dallas at @thirdeyegallery last night. And weirdly true to form and as things always tend to be, it really always only hurts a little.”
Tattooist Dre Li added a snap of herself and Busy posing together on her own Instagram page, and captioned it: “Honored to have tattooed the incredible @busyphilipps the other night. As y’all know, she’s a badass and sweetheart. The design is from her book by amazing illustrator @mcfetridge. Thanks for the trust and having me do it, and for the reminder #f**kem Done @thirdeyegallery.”
When one fan praised Busy for having the powerful message tattooed on herself, but asked how she would explain it to her children – Birdie, 10, and five-year-old Cricket – the screen star replied: “I tell them that these are words to live by. Especially as a woman.”
Busy documented the process of getting her first-ever tattoo, the phrase “aced out in her nudes” on her left forearm, on her social media pages last year. Explaining she wasn’t feeling too nervous about being inked, she told her Instagram followers: “I’m not actually nervous. I had two kids with no pain drugs, I’m fine.”
