Sam Smith’s brand new tattoo references their gender identity
Miles Langford revealed Sam Smith’s brand new tattoo. The tattoo depicts a short-haired person standing in front of a mirror in tighty whities and high heels.
The meaning this new inking is yet to be revealed by Sam Smith but it definitely has close connection to his gender identity.
The picture was posted on Instagram by Miles Langford on Thursday 22, 2021. Capturing it “Thanks for getting tattooed. Swipe to see Sam’s new tattoo and for a good time”
He said swipe, so let’s swipe!!!
Two years ago Sam Smith came out as non-binary, posting on Instagram at the time: “Today is a good day so here goes… I’ve decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM.”
What is non – binary?
According to healthline
“The term “nonbinary” can mean different things to different people. At its core, it’s used to describe someone whose gender identity isn’t exclusively male or female.
If someone tells you they’re nonbinary, it’s always important to ask what being nonbinary means to them. Some people who are nonbinary experience their gender as both male and female, and others experience their gender as neither male nor female.
Nonbinary can also be used as an umbrella term, encompassing many gender identities that don’t fit into the male-female binary .
Although nonbinary is often regarded as a new idea, the identifier has been around for as long as civilization has. In fact, nonbinary gender has been recorded as far back as 400 B.C. to 200 A.D. , when Hijras — people in India who identified as beyond male or female — were referenced in ancient Hindu texts.
India is one of many countries around the world with language and a social culture that acknowledges those whose gender can’t be exclusively categorized as male or female”
I remember when James Barr interviewed Smith in 2019 and tweeted about it referring Smith as “THEY”
This is really hilarious, i mean how can “one person” be referred to as “THEY” Does it mean that we have two of him?
This is not the first time the Grammy Award Winner is getting inked.These are his other tattoos.
