The Special Meaning Behind Helen Mirren’s #Tattoo

Helen Mirren spilled the tea on the special meaning behind her tattoo during her commencement speech at Tulane University in 2017. “I know, it’s hard to believe, Dame Helen Mirren does have a tattoo,” she told the students. “I got my tattoo when only Hells Angels, sailors, and convicted felons got them.”

Mirren shared that, in the early 1970s, she searched for spiritual meaning all around the globe. “Eastern, western, and all over the place,” she said. Mirren finally found the answer she was looking for in the southern extremity of North America. The actor drew inspiration from the ancient Maya civilization, which controlled the Mesoamerica area for more than 3,000 years. Mirren then gained insight from the Mayan affirmation “in La’kesh,” so much so that she had the ancient symbol tattooed on her left hand. “In La’Kesh means ‘You are my other self. We are one. I am another yourself,'” she explained.

The Chicano playwright Luis Valdes expanded on its meaning in his poem “Pensamiento Serpentino.” The English translation reads, “You are my other me. If I do harm to you. I do harm to myself. If I love and respect you. I love and respect myself.”
