It doesn’t take Mean Girls‘ Karen character to report what this tattoo means! Amanda Seyfried’s ink is a cursive foot tattoo reading “minge.” Coincidentally, her Instagram handle is @mingey. So what does the word mean?
Seyfried revealed on Late Night With Seth Meyers in 2018 (via Refinery 29) that “minge” is British slang for vagina. Her Mamma Mia! costars Rachel McDowall and Ashley Lilley also share the same tat. “It’s a term of endearment, and in England, it means ‘vagina,'” Seyfried explained. “But in the U.S., which is where I spend most of my time, it just doesn’t mean anything. So we commemorated our friendship with ‘minge’ tattoos.” While she admits that there is “a lot of judgment” when Brits peer down at her ankle, the phrase “means so much more to me than the vagina.” Talk about a sweet sentiment!
Will Seyfried get any more meaningful tattoos in the future? Only time will tell!
