Today, I finally got the courage to ask my workmate about her tattoo. She's been in the office for 4 months and I'd always wondered why she had a red cheese grater tattooed on her arm. So I asked. Turns out it's a lady's shoe. She walked away from me and never talked to me again. FML

So she never talked to you again. Of course, since this happened yesterday, it means that she hasn't talked to you for a few hours.

Just apologize and try to phrase your question better next time. For instance: "Oh, nice tattoo, what's the story behind it?".

I so want to see the tattoo! Also, OP, don't feel too bad, if people can't figure out your tattoo after looking at it for four months, maybe another tattoo artist would have been a better choice.

And now you're workmate finally realized what her tattoo really is.

ALWAYS open with, "Hey, may I ask, what's your tattoo?"
Then she would have said... "Uh, a red shoe?"
Then you would have said, "Oh! Silly me!"
