Temporary bee tatoo

Whenever I think of tatooing a general-purpose reminder on myself, I remember that I habituate pretty quickly, so that I’d probably soon ignore the tattoo.

But this striking bee temporary tattoo has me thinking that it could be an effective reminder, as I could move it to different spots and perhaps defeat habituation that way.

And just after I posted this, I realized that perhaps a way of making a permanent tattoo memorable to myself is to have it noticeable enough to others that they remark on it. Hmmmm…

If you get a permanent Beeminder tattoo you are getting a lot of Beeminder premium credit.

Also I wonder if we could add temporary tattoos to our merch store… Maybe @lejuletre knows?

Well, for the first person to do it, I don’t know, $1k? Once the trend is set and everyone’s doing it, that’s another story. Oh yeah, it should also depend how visible it is. Lower back shouldn’t count for nearly as much.

Holy cow! I’m going to repeat my reaction from Discord where I first saw this:

D: omg is this real?
B: You bet
D: wait, really real, for real? that’s a tattoo, embedded in your skin, with a needle? (just eager to clarify before i follow through on the huge premium credit promise!)
D: and can we get this in the forum as well, for posterity?
D: you are amazing

I’ve now applied the $1k of premium credit! :heart: :money_mouth_face:
