Mandy Moore Explains the Meaning Behind Her Random Sperm Tattoo

Mandy Moore revealed the meaning behind the little sperm tattoo she has on her ankle.

The actress, who is currently promoting her new NBC show This Is Us, stopped by the Late Night with Seth Meyers, where she finally addressed the fact that she has a sperm tattoo. It’s actually a pretty interesting/sentimental story.

“Well, about 10 years ago, I was on tour with my band. I had my own room to shower in … all of the guys in my band shared a day room. Their one rule was nobody was allowed to do … that thing in the shower,” Moore, 32, explained, referring to masturbation.

“It became this big joke because one of my band members was like, ‘I don’t want babies on my feet.’ And so we created a song called ‘Babies on My Feet’ that we sang on stage every night. No one had any idea what we were talking about,” she continued.

“Right after I got it, I went and got a pedicure and the woman was like, ‘Honey, I’m trying to scrub this off and it looks like permanent marker,’ and I was like, ‘No, no, that’s a tattoo and it’s not going anywhere,’” she told a laughing Seth Meyers.
