Hatchet Man for Juggalos, Hatchet Girl for Juggalettes?

It should come as no surprise that the majority of Insane Clown Posse fans were men (Juggalos) when the band first appeared on the scene some 20+ years ago. Today, most fans are still of the extra chromosome persuasion, but there is an abundance of Juggalettes not found in the early 90s.

What is it about ICP’s music that attracts Juggalettes? After all, most of the lyrical content focuses on themes that historically are more male oriented, such as murder and other generally morbid topics. Is the idea that women aren’t also interested in these topics just a stereotype? If the Juggalettes provide any insight, the answer to that question is looking like yes.


Juggalettes are highly respected by their male Juggalo counterparts. They are paraded on display at the Gathering of the Juggalos annual horror rap music festival, and are cheered as they wrestle in kiddy pools of oil at the same event. But none of this is to say that Juggalettes exist only for Juggalo respect and aren’t appreciative ICP fans as well.

For instance, the Hatchet man, a symbol of pride in the Juggalo world, is only really available as a man. What is there for Juggalettes who want a symbol representing their sex, a hatchet girl if you will? They’re out there too, but it will take some digging to find them and you’ll often have to order them custom.

The hatchet girls you can find online right now come in a few varieties. The most common isn’t too surprising – it just takes the hatchet man logo and gives it a more slender figure and a ponytail. When the hatchet man and hatchet girl symbols are placed right next to each other, you’ve got quite the Juggalo / Juggalette power couple!

Other hatchet girl designs that Juggalettes might be fond of are that of a hatchet girl sonogram of a fetus (still with the hatchet), and one cartoon image of the hatchet man and hatchet girl kissing. It aptly reads “hatchet love.”

So there are some available designs, what kind of hatchet girl featuring ICP gear is out there for Juggalettes? Most ICP gear items featuring this design, not surprisingly, are jewelry items. There are hatchet girl belly rings, hatchet girl dog tags, hatchet girl necklaces, hatchet girl stickers, etc. The list of ICP gear built for Juggalettes is a long one, and rightly so. It should also come as no surprise that many Juggalettes have opted for a more permanent hatchet girl souvenir via an ICP tattoo just as Juggalos have done for the hatchet man.

Most Juggalos know the story of ICP founder Shaggy 2 Dope drawing the hatchet man on a napkin for it to be the Psychopathic Records logo, but there hasn’t been one person come forth to claim credit for the hatchet girl drawing. Whoever he or she is, wherever he or she is, is responsible for making a plethora of Psychopathic Records and ICP gear genderless and should be proud!

If it weren’t for whoever designed the hatchet girl logo, most ICP gear would still be sporting the hatchet man and marketed towards Juggalos. To learn more about the ICP gear available to Juggalos and
