"Thank you @trinegrimm for my warrior's chest plate/tit chandelier," she captioned the picture. "This is my first original piece by a female tattoo artist and it felt sacred and cool and she didn't chide me for copying @badgalriri's placement. If you're ever in Oslo, go meet this metal queen and let her handle your body."
Indeed, Dunham's tattoo immediately brought Rihanna's iconic wings tattoo to mind. The "Work" singer has had the Egyptian goddess Isis inked under her breasts for years now.
Dunham has never been shy about showing off her body either on social media or on her hit HBO show, which is currently in the midst of its sixth and final season. The Lenny Letter co-founder has received harsh criticism and backlash for continually showing herself naked on "Girls," which she has admitted is impossible to completely ignore.
"It didn't occur to me that in the first season, TV critics and people on the Internet would be seeing this," Dunham told Refinery29 last year on stripping down for her show. "Now, for better or worse, when I take my clothes off, I already can hear the din of the reaction."

Just wanted to share that one of the reasons @eatingboys has inspired me so much is because of the way she mixes her humor and sexuality. I spent so many years loving my body but thinking it wasn't lovable by others- its sole purpose was to be fodder for jokes. I performed the insult so no one else could. I don't regret any of it- that's my art and that was my truth- but now, at age 31, having been through hell and back with my health and other people's perceptions of my physicality, I feel deeply comfortable with the idea that this pear-shaped pot of honey is equally good for making people laugh and laying out like a Suicide Girl circa 2004. Love it all.
I’ll tell you what freedom is to me. No fear. #NinaSimone
Something special today 🖤
