Today, I realized that the "holla" tattoo I stupidly got on my lower lip five years ago isn't fading as I expected it to, and will probably contribute to my unemployment for years to come. FML

Why would you EVER consider doing that??

at least youve come to grips with the stupidity of your purchase!

Well I assume alcohol was involved. I mean someone can only make intelligent decisions after some heavy drinking.

Because op is a bananamuffin...

I think we can safely assume that OP is an idiot without the help of alcohol.

So OP can "holla" in the unemployment line of course....

What makes you think it's a girl? "BananaMuffin" is THE MOST masculine username.

Yeah, tattoos on your face generally aren't a good idea...unless you're mike tyson, of course.

Jesus Christ. Just wear some lipstick to cover it.

Try this stuff called Copenhagen tears lips up

It could have been worse. She could have gotten "Insert dick here". But then again, she could definitely get a job with that tattoo...

Or Kat Von D. You have to admit, she pulls off the stars above her left eye. ? ? ?

OP could always cover it up with make up.

Are you an idiot? People can usually see other peoples lips...

1- I'm more curious as to why they thought a tattoo would fade away? Let alone why you would tat your face with something so frivolous. YDI moron

Well if op is a girl she can wear lipstick…

I'm with 230 it doesn't fade away the color lightens and touch ups would be needed but it wont fade LASER IT OFF DICK HEAD

..err.. yeah, because LASERING a tattoo from your lip is an even better idea..!? Im sure OPs lip will look great after that!

It makes me sad that people are thumbing you up. If it was on the inside, she wouldn't be making an FML about it. Kinda obvious. *facepalm*

WARNING! #3's stupidity is highly contagious. Please refrain from replying to his comment. You have been warned...

Well, considering that when people are usually talking about lip tattoos, it's usually inside. With the exception of people in jail or very heavily tattooed people, I've never seen anyone tattoo themselves on the outer lip unless it's permanent cosmetics.

Dumbass was stupid enough to get a lip tattoo that said "holla", I'm pretty sure op wasn't thinking about the implications of getting it on the inside of their lip

EG14_fml 8

Oh my gosh... you're an idiot....

I thought Op's meant the inside of their lip was tattooed and visable when they talk.

But if OPs tattoo was on the outside why would s/he think it would fade? Inner lip tattoos do fade.

hawaiianfire 0

It's just not deteriorating fast enough, she has to get "yolo" tattooed before that goes out of style too.

111- how the hell do you talk? You can't see the inside of my lower lip when I talk...

It makes more sense then OP having a tattoo on the outside of their lip and thinking that shit will fade

Maybe shes recently had a stroke or a severe case of the droopies. Bad experiences with botox anyone? Nope, I'm out of ideas, theres just no way an inner lip tattoo could be seen by anyone that wasn't practically sitting on your face.

You're halfway there. Now follow that path and you'll find the answer to your question.

Wow you idiot, it's pretty obvious that tattoo's last forever. Don't get them on your face where you can't hide them.

I feel like they mean the ones on the inside of the lower lip, those do fade, but I'm not sure if those are visible when the person talks.

Ikr! Who DOESN'T know that tattoos don't fade!?

Lip and knuckle tattoos do fade in some cases.

And on the underside of your foot (if you can bear to get one there), some tattooists practice there because they wear off pretty quick.

sharod101 5

Lol if you can't hide a tattoo with a shirt on, than you probably shouldn't get it! OP YDI, no questions asked.

72, I lived with a chef and his knuckle tattoos faded due to wear. I would suggest lazier removal but I'm scared for the damage it would do to your lips. This sucks OP, but YDI!

Only the ones on the inside of ur lip fade

omgcookeys 15

If its on the outside, op can just wear lipstick to cover it.

There's nothing wrong with visible tattoos on your arms or legs as long as they aren't offensive or just godawful. Neck and face tattoos are generally a bad idea though. As are hand/knuckle tattoos. Nothing says "I just got out of prison like a face/neck/knuckle tattoo."

Hindsight is always 20/20, isn't it? It isn't the tattoo specifically, trust me. It's just that when potential employers see the tattoo on your lip, they realise that only a COMPLETE MORON would actually do something like that.

but looking back it's still a bit fuzzy

He would have a pretty easy time as a wallmart greeter tho.

Ha 10 that song popped into mind when I read that too

Welcome to Walmart get your shit and get out

5, Some would say only a complete moron would think those old geocities sites looked good too. Plenty of things seem like a "cool" idea when you're younger, it doesn't reflect intelligence, only the maturity and life experience of the person at the time. Not that I'm trying to justify the activity as anything other than stupid, but current level of intelligence isn't necessarily at the same point as it was when they got the tattoo - as can be seen here.

Nope, it definitely reflects intelligence. One common earmark of not only maturity, but also intelligence is the ability to foresee the consequences of one's actions while putting aside personal (sometimes rash) feelings. Sorry, but you're wrong, this person was idiotic for tattooing their face, in the most objective sense.

Lmao drink alcohol gets rid off it

If you drink spirits get rid of lip tats happen to two ppl I know

I don't want to live on this planet anymore...

No, no, alcohol is how the tattoos got there. It would probably result in more stupid tattoos if OP drank more alcohol.

Do you know how stupid you sound??

99- I think she is very unaware. There's no helping this one..

Her looks make up for it though! Thumbs up!

She can't even spell which state she lives in

Epsilonyx 15

Some of you need to calm the **** down instead of jumping on the bandwagon and being pricks. You don't like her comment, then thumb it down.

dsbs 9

I'm pretty sure alcohol caused the problem. How would it solve it?

29, I want to throw a dictionary at you face....and then give you a shirt that doesn't look like it belongs on a two year old!

185, Really? Picking on her shirt now? Wow...thats just low. Yes, her spelling makes her look like she has a learning deficiency, but that comment just made you look a whole lot more pathetic.

MissHayleyJames 7

Well her shirt is ridiculously small for her...

Because she has cleavage her shirt is small? We can't see the rest of her shirt, so you can't tell if it's "too small" for her. And her shirt has nothing to do with her comment so I don't get why it was even brought up.

MissHayleyJames 7

Ok I'll rephrase. Her shirt is ridiculously too low cut. The first thing you think about a girl showing that much cleavage is "slutty and desperate". Those are the words straight out of my husbands mouth.

Well it happened to two people she knows - that's empirical scientific evidence if I've ever heard any!

erockinthesuburb 17

Nothing says "Hire Me!" quite like a face tattoo!

bertoelmexicano 6

Lil Wayne got a job didnt he?

Should have just had "Hire Me" tattooed there instead.

HonestTruth 5

Holla Girl! If you are just realizing this, how old were you when you got it? 12 or something?

Isn't that illegal? It is here in the UK, you have to be at least 18!

Calen5556 0

That "are you ******* kidding me" face goes great with this comment and FML!

She's 5 years older than she was then, obviously...

... If only your next interviewer has a sense of humor :) Try an opaque lipstick!
