How amazing is this? Lady Gaga got a new tattoo yesterday and no it wasn’t just a personal art piece to match her collection, rather it was a matching tattoo that she got with the 50 sexual assault survivors who joined her onstage at the Oscars.
Lady Gaga made a snapchat video where she let her fans watch the video of her being tattooed. She said “At rehearsal, the survivors and I made a pact.” Gaga also took to Instagram saying “The first day of rehearsal with all the survivors I could barely get myself together. My body was wrecked with inflammation and pain, crying and shaking the whole walk to the stage. The whole night before I did not sleep. The fear of knowing I would finally face that I belonged in that group.”
Everyone got the same tattoo in a variety of sizes on different parts of their bodies, a tatto that symbolized freedom. Having been raped at age 19, Gaga is not only a survivor but a role model.
Watch her incredible Oscar performance with the 50 survivors.
