Today, I wore a sleeveless shirt for the first time in years, when I glimpsed something on my shoulder that looked like a spider. I let out a scream that sounded like a donkey having a stroke and flailed my arms. Then I realized it was my tattoo, and that I was freaking out everyone on the bus. FML

Whatever you're on...pass it the fuck around.

How do you forget you have a tattoo?


How do you forget you have a tattoo?

I have one on my back. I other it's there sometimes because I can't see it.

I forget about the tattoo on my ankle all the time.

Yeah, but one on your shoulder? Surely OP takes showers. You would definitely see that on your own shoulder.

I actually have one on my wrist. It's not small and sometimes I'm still left wondering what it is when I see it out of the corner of my eye. I love my tattoo and it's my only one but sometimes you do just forget that they're there

Exactly what I was thinking.

I have one on my neck. I always forrget about it and freak out when I glimpse in the mirror and think something's on me. after a while (and it's not one that's in a completely visiable spot ) you'll forget about it. you wouldn't think it but it is easy to do.

When I got my wrist tattoos, a few times I forgot about them and when caught a glimpse of one under my arm, I thought it was a spider as well! So it's not unheard of.

If people with tattoos are still fairly young, it's not like they had them for the majority of their lives. I forget I have mine sometimes!! Even the one that is spread from my right hip to upper rib cage! It's covered a lot of the time and I often forget I have it

Both tops of my feet are completely covered and if I'm not thinking about it and look quickly I forget and it's there and I double take like wtf is that, then I realize. It's really easy to forget they're there.. It's not like you Can feel them or anything.


my tattoo is on my back. I always have 1 of 2 reactions freakout because I think something is on me, or I am genuinely surprised I have a tattoo. it's easy to forget years later when its not always in direct line of sight

My best friend has a tattoo on his arm, but he is also a hoodie aficionado so he never sees it and often forgets that it's there.

How was the rest of the ride?

Can you imagine being on that bus? I would laugh so hard seeing someone trip out over technically nothing.

Yeah, I'll have what she's having.

Paranoia and donkey seizures? I'll pass

Some people pay extra for paranoia and donkey seizures.

What do you have tattooed on your shoulder?

Bieber. I would probably scream too.

Hopefully something that comes close to resembling a spider.

I bet it's "no ragrets."

We're The Millers, that's a good movie

Why would you get a spider tattoo if you are that afraid of spiders? Sorry, but epic fail.

OP said she thought her tattoo was a spider. Not that she had a spider tattoo...

Your comments an epic fail...

A friend of mine actually got a tattoo of a spider in an attempt to get rid of his fear. I'm not sure how successful that was.

that sounds like a good way to ensure you have panic attacks o.O

What exactly does a donkey having a stroke sound like?

I really want to make a bad joke here, but I don't want to be an ass about it.

#6 It sounds like anyone else having a stroke, but just a little horse.

They let asses on the bus nowadays? (Then I was down voted into hell.)

If you wouldn't have said you were going to be downvoted you wouldn't have been. The joke was actually funny, but putting 'then I was downvoted' in parentheses ruined it.

I actually upvoted it. Not for the joke but because the second part made me chuckle.

nothing92x 13

So this joke is funny but not the one where I didn't put the same ending in response to #6? I know they aren't great but I was hoping more people would like them.

They've both been down voted a few times, I'd start to work on new material.

What Street Fighter character is your profile picture?

#78 This is Dudley. This is artwork from Street Fighter 3: Third Strike.

I really hope it's not a spider tattoo, since you're scared of them.

You could scare a lot of people with it if it looks realistic enough!

Show it anyway

Wow, I was unaware that having a valid phobia is equal to immaturity. Are adults supposed to be afraid of nothing?

I'm terrified of spiders, and I am a mature, rational adu- Oh wait.

Nobody ever said it was a phobia. If it were a phobia, they'd have mentioned it.

I'm in my thirties and I'd still freak out if I thought there was a spider on me.

How do you know what a donkey having a stroke sounds like.
