Poor sense of direction? Be guided by simple tattoos

This girl had the bright idea of having her hands properly marked

To be honest, I’m not a big fan of tattoos. But I admit I admire skin art that serves a purpose. Take for example the above simple design shared by Sydney-based tattoo artist Lauren Winzer. She made this for a client who had difficulty following directions. She captioned it:

Not only are tattoos cute, but they can also be super functional!!! Good luck with all your future directions.

I personally have a poor sense of direction, so I can totally relate to this. Okay, maybe not too poor for me to get confused with left and right, but I’m the type who needs to visit a specific address at least five times before being able to go there without the help of Waze. So, yeah, I dig this brilliant life hack.

Now, if you’re really good at finding your way around but still want a motoring-themed tattoo, how about an illustration of your beloved car instead?
