The 31-year-old actress shared the snap with the caption: "It's only important to me that people know as they're busy tweeting bulls**t about me I'm most often dressed in a latex suit and crystal crown working from home on imagining new worlds #blessedb***h."
The image shows Dunham sporting a pink latex halter bodysuit putting her thigh tattoo on display. She accessorized her look with a crown while snapping a selfie in the mirror.
Dunham's picture was posted right around the time that American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy announced that the actress was going to be featured on Season 7 of the wildly popular FX series.
Murphy took to Twitter to share the announcement which read: "Thrilled that my talented friend Lena Dunham is joining the AMERICAN HORROR STORY family. Always wanted to work together, and now we r!"

No specific details about Dunham's role have been revealed at this time, and there is little known about the upcoming season other than the theme of the season is inspired by the 2016 presidential election.
Most recently, Dunham wrapped on her HBO series, Girls, and this will be her first major role since.
Other stars attached to appear in the next season of AHS include vets Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, as well as series newcomers Billie Lourd (who previously worked with Ryan Murphy on FOX's Scream Queens) and Billy Eichner, from Billy on the Street.
As for Dunham, this isn't the first time that she has posted photos on the Internet that have drawn criticism. At the end of June, she shared a topless selfie that received some backlash from social media users.
She captioned the photo, "really did wake up like this."
It's clear to see that the body-shaming and other remarks about Dunham's appearance haven't stopped her from posting the photos that she wants on the Internet. Judging by her latest message, she doesn't have any plans to stop sharing racy photos any time soon.
