nervous tattoos

This is probably the only time I’m going to say this, because the Grey Lady is not known for being hilarious, but wow, The New York Times really nails it with their “tattoos for the terrified.” If you are a very anxious person who is bizarrely able to overcome their fear of needles and public ridicule enough to go and get a tattoo in the first place, consider some of Frank Lesser’s excellent suggestions like:

Wings on shoulder blades, captioned “Not actually a bird” in case a hunter sees it.

A “Memento”-style tattoo reminding you not to watch “Memento.” That movie is so intense!

A mermaid wearing a life preserver. She’s not taking any chances.
