Why People Who Are Type A Should Never Design Tattoos

I used to love tattoos. (I still like them to some extent.) I've gone with friends to hang out while they get tattoos. It’s fun to watch, but I am not a tattoo kind of gal myself.

Over the weekend, I had a dream that I got a tattoo, but I couldn't remember how I got it. You can imagine the terror I felt when I realized I had a tattoo on my back. Scratch that. On my entire back. And it was the most ridiculously ugly tattoo there ever was. Even in my dreams, my mind couldn't come up with a better design.

I frantically thought about how I could hide it until I had laser removal which would have taken 50 sessions, I'm sure.  

This is what it looked like: 

A Visual - Why People Who Are Type A Should Never Design Tattoos

This is why people who are Type A should never design tattoos.

Also, in the words of Emily from The Devil Wears Prada: “I’m just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.” But who needs the stomach flu when you can get food poisoning instead? Oh, joy! If there is anything worse than a person with food poisoning, it’s two people with food poisoning. It's been a less than glamorous Monday in this house.

Hello, goal weight! Winking smile

LINDS! This is hilarious! Im glad you didnt cover your back with "dream" tattoos but knowing you I know you rock them ;)

Ha - that tattoo could be useful. I guess only in certain situations. Also, I had the flu in January and was saying the same thing because the days before I was cleansing. I hope your family feels better quick.

DYING. Hahaha this is too good.
I've never designed any of my tattoos...I tried with my first one, but the artist said it didn't have enough motion...#TypeAProblems

Boo for food poisoning. Feel better, sistaaa.

Oh this is SO funny Lindsay! Haha, I would have died if I had a dream that a tatoo covered my whole back! I mean a little something is do-able, but the entire back, NOPE! Glad you woke up and it wasn't real, haha!

Whitney said...

oh gosh, I would have done the same thing! I love tattoos on other people, but on me? No way!

Hope you and Mr. TBS are doing okay! Let me know if there's anything I can do for you!

Michelle said...

Hahaha!!! That is a NIGHTMARE! Hilarious!

Oh man! I can't imagine that kind of dream-panic! That is too funny.

Hope you guys are starting to feel better. My flu was passed onto Sebastian so it's been quite interesting around here too... (and filled with a lot of "babe... what did you do to us?" hahaha)

My parent's have threatened to write me out of their will if I ever got a tattoo. Fortunately, I never wanted one anyway.

That tattoo you "dreamed up" could be useful if you used it to make grocery list of some sort.

I hope you feel better, friend! Yuck! Stomach flu is no bueno. :(

there are typos in my comment. Like you, I can't stand them, even though I make errors all the time! You get what I was saying though ;)
