New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson, 60, is kind of a badass.
In an interview with Out magazine published Tuesday, Abramson admitted that she has four tattoos, including the New York Times “T” and an “H” for her alma mater, Harvard University.
“It’s become for me a strange form of personal hieroglyphics,” Abramson said. “I have now four. I think eventually, when I finish doing them, will tell the story of me, of where I lived, and what things have been important to me. That doesn’t mean that I have my kid’s pictures tattooed.”
“I have two then on my back that are the two institutions that I revere, that have shaped me,” She continued. “One is unsurprisingly the amazing ‘T’ in The New York Times newspaper. Then I have a Crimson Harvard ‘H’ and that’s for Harvard, and also for my husband Henry, who we met when we were in the same class at Harvard.
The mother-of-two started at the Times in 1997, so she could have gotten the ink anytime over the past 17 years.
