You’re not the only one who has put time and thought into making a to-do list… only to have it somehow disappear before you have a chance to check off more than one or two items.

One woman decided on a creative — and permanent — solution: she had a blank list with checkboxes tattooed in black ink on the inside of her lower arm.

Stephanie Levy in Queensland, Australia, got this to-do tattoo from her husband as an anniversary gift after she’d been talking about having it done for two years.

The second photo below shows the fun and functional tat in action, reminding her of chores to be completed and bills to be paid.

Would you get this kind of utilitarian body art? It’s definitely an unforgettable way to keep track of everything you need to get done… as long as you don’t have to wear long-sleeved shirts or jackets.
