On Tuesday, more than 100 women lined up in front of Brass Knuckle Tattoo Studio in Minneapolis. Each one awaited a tattoo designed by artist Chelsea Brink: scripted letters of the already-storied quote from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's attempt to silence Sen. Elizabeth Warren earlier this month. Explaining Warren's silencing, McConnell said, "She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
Immediately following McConnell's condemnation of Warren, his words began appearing everywhere — on t-shirts, memes, stickers, signs. And now tattoos.
While waiting to get inked, prospective-tattooee Nora McInerny told the Star Tribune, "Did I ever think I would get a Mitch McConnell quote tattooed on my body? No, I did not. But those are three words that any woman would be able to see themselves in, regardless of politics."
Kate O'Reilly, one of the organizers of the event — which spanned over nine hours — echoed McInerny's sentiments: "I finally found something meaningful enough to put permanently on my body. In the face of everything right now, it will be a constant reminder to keep going."
