Amanda Seyfried's Foot Tattoo

What Do You Think About One-Word Tattoos?

It was recently brought to attention that the seemingly sweet Amanda Seyfried has a rather naughty tattoo on her inner left foot. The actress, who has admitted that she has a dirty sense of humor, said of her ink:

"It's a nickname, it's evolved into kind of an endearing term, a term of endearment. I don't really take that many things seriously so I thought, 'Hey, why not?' I wanted to know what a tattoo felt like. I got it in October, and a couple of us have it. 'Minge' [is] slang in Britain for like, 'vagina.' I don't know, a lot of people think I don't know what it means, but I've lived there before I know what it means."

What do you think about that one, FabSugar UK? But Amanda's not alone when it comes to one-word tats. Rihanna has "love" tattooed on her left middle finger and model Freja Beha Erichsen has the word "float" on the left side of her neck. When it comes to these straight-to-the-point designs, what's your opinion? Do you love 'em, or do you prefer other types of ink?

I have a one word tattoo myself on the inside of my wrist. It says Hope with a tiny little star next to. So yeah... I love one word tattoo's :) As long as they have a good meaning behind it for the owner. I don't really like silly tattoo's that are basically meaningless and just for fun.

i think one word tats are ok if it has meaning to them... i dont think i would ever get a one word tat but hey thats at the moment... you never know what the future holds... but if i did get one it would have to have alot of meaning... i couldnt just put any one word on my body... i always ask the meaning when i see some one get or has a one word tat...

Hate it with a passion and I'd love to talk with you ladies in about 25 years. Note: I have several tattoos (long before they were a fad) but you'd never see them unless you're sleeping with me. How about "Tramp Stamps"? Anyone remember that? Well the removal tat business is booming cause they all want them removed now that they have careers or babies or just things that were too trendy. Think before you leap! Friendly advice ladies, not trying to tell you how to live your life.

I have a one word tattoo on my inner right wrist. "Beloved". It's from Beethoven's letters, and I haven't seen the movie... So it wasn't influenced by anything but his words. It's done in a cursive script, and my first and probably only tattoo. I got it on vacation and felt it was time. I also chose one of the best artists because I could never fathom going to a random artist.

I like the one word thing, most of my friends have only one word tats- my best friend has her name on her back in Arabic. It's pretty cool.

I am indifferent. But then again I am not much of a tattoo person.

My friend has "imagine" and I like that, but "minge" is a bit of an odd choice. Kinda hilarious, but odd. But hey, with dyslexia it's almost "imagine" lol. All of my tattoos are pictures so far, but if I add words it's more likely I'll get a phrase or quote than just one word... I tend to like them big :)

i like them too. i have a one word tattoo 'fly' and i feel as if it's both mysterious and straight to the point.

i like them, but i don't know about the British slang for vag i don't have any tattoos but this is a trend i would choose if i were to get inked, most likely i've been trying to talk my sister into getting her nickname on the back of her's super short (2 letters) and it would be so cute and usually covered by parents weren't a big fan when i told them though!! my nickname is my last name for the most part (the most consistent nickname anyway) so maybe i could get a tiny cursive of that maybe when i get married and change my name or something...hmm that idea just popped into my head!!
