Tattoos You Should Never Get

10 awful Tattoos You Should avoid like the plague

Things fade. Trends change. Your tattoo doesn't.


Tattoos can be an amazing form of expression and artwork. But sometimes, permanence is underestimated, and a tattoo can turn into a decision you really regret.

1. The name of an (ex) girlfriend or boyfriend

They are the love of your life...until they aren't in your life anymore. Your love wasn't forever, but now your permanent tattoo is.

2. The spontaneous tattoo

Generally, it's a good idea not to make spur of the moment decisions that have permanent consequences.

3. The current trend

Remember when everyone was dancing like that? Or singing that song? You'll have to remember it when it's tattooed on you.

4. The sexual joke

What would your mom say?

5. Offensive cultural tattoos

Don't degrade another culture by slapping a tribal tattoo on your body.

6. The matching tattoo with someone you barely know

You've been dating this guy for a week and you're getting matching tattoos, which will, in most cases, serve as a constant reminder of someone you don't speak to anymore.

7. A celebrity

It's kind of creepy in the first place, because you don't know them. But also, do you really want to plaster the face or name of some celebrity on your body that may or may not be your favorite celebrity in a couple of years or months?

8. Words you haven't spellchecked

Always. Spellcheck. And, if you don't know what it's probably best not to get it inked.

9. The tramp stamp

Rarely has there been a tasteful tramp stamp. Just generally something to steer clear of.

10. The unprofessional tattoo

Your friend wants to be a tattoo artist. That's great, but might not be the best idea for you to be her first canvas.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
