Frank Ocean Gets New Tattoo Inspired by 'Simpsons' Creator Matt Groening's Cartoon About Gay Romance
Ever since coming out as bisexual in 2012, R&B superstar Frank Ocean has made it a habit to not speak out very frequently about his sexuality, or about anything involving his personal life. But over the weekend, the star made a clear statement on his Instagram.
On Sunday, Ocean shared an image on his Instagram Story (which has since disappeared) of a brand-new tattoo on his thigh, covering up an older, faded tattoo. The new image is a replica of an old illustration by The Simpsons creator Matt Groening.
The original drawing, published in 1983 as part of Groening’s Life in Hell comic strip series, shows two male rabbits and two female rabbits, with the text reading “Homo vs. Hetero. Which is Better?” The comic proceeds to show the “differences” between the two types of relationships, ultimately making the statement that other than oppression and “breeding like rabbits,” they are ultimately the same.
Ocean’s image comes as the singer has seemingly re-emerged on social media, posting more regularly on his various accounts and his blog. After one cryptic Tumblr post, fans speculated that the star had new music on the way, though later posts made it clear that the star’s account had been hacked.
