How to Never Lose Your To-Do List Again


I found this photo the other day while looking for a picture to go with one of my posts. Can you believe this lady actually tattooed a to-do list on her arm?

I mean, I’ve got my fair share of lists, but I generally just hang them on the refrigerator. 🙂

Questions to Ponder Before Getting the To-Do List Tattoo

  • What would you use to fill in the blanks. Pen or Marker?
  • Would your to-dos wash off if you got your arm wet?
  • Or would you not wash your arm until you finished the list? Ughh!!

Okay. So I figured since I got a kick out of this one, you might like it too.

What do you think?

  • Well, I found it quite entertaining. I would use crayola washable markers since I like daily lists and daily showers 🙂

      Good idea Jenn! With my luck though, I’d probably end up in the rain or accidentally washing it off before I got everything done. I think I’ll just stick with paper and pen. 🙂

    I don’t have a tatoo and have never had any desire to get one, but honestly, and this is crazy, something about this one speaks to me. I’ll never do it, but I guess I think it is one of the best tatoos I’ve ever seen. (I’m a very practical person)

    Hi guys! This is my tattoo so I can answer your questions. Firstly, I use it everyday. I’ve had it for almost 4 months now and it’s incredibly useful. Now for the questions. I don’t use a pen or a marker because if I’ve put lotion on my arm pens & markers don’t work. Plus they can be hard to get off. Instead, I use one of those “foolproof” eyeliner pens (this one, not because I’m brand specific but just because I already owned it: Basically, it’s easy to wash off but it’s meant to stay in place even with a certain amount of moisture. If I get my arm really wet, the entries do start to fade or blur or wash off but I find I can do dishes without having any problems.

    I usually write up my list while eating breakfast and then carry the pen with me so I can add things or check things off. At the end of the day, I either write down anything not done that I’m not going to remember on a little slip of paper which I set my mobile phone on top of when I go to bed so I can add those things to my list in the morning or I use a note in my phone. But, I’ve found that if I use my list everyday, I don’t have to write much down. My memory’s a bit better and I’m much more organized.

    Anyway, I’m so glad you got a kick out of my tattoo. I love it and have found it more useful than I originally thought it would. I’d be happy to answer any other questions people have as well.
