Camila Mendes Opened Up About The Meaning Behind Her Ribcage Tattoo


Camila Mendes is on the cover of Women's Health this month and she opened up about the inspiration behind her "to build a home" tattoo on her ribcage!

Camila said she had, "A very very bad experience; I was roofied by someone who sexually assaulted me." After that, Camila was committed to making everything around her feel safe and comfortable, something she's always wanted in a home. So, she got the tattoo after her freshman year.


I'm really happy that Camila opened up about this experience because I do think things like this really have an impact on how you live your life. My freshman year I was roofied my first week at college and I was so scared. I didn't want to tell my parents because I didn't want them to worry. I actually didn't want to tell anyone because they would just tell me I got too drunk.

It was SO scary and I truly believe it's the reason I never once tried any drugs in college. Also why I wanted to throw myself into a sorority, I wanted to have people around met at all times.
