Leah is not anti-masker, it’s just that the timing was off. I had a friend tell me this quote about me. We were just talking about things we admire about the other person, and he said, ‘You courageously refuse to wear a mask.'”
Right here is the woman who won the latest trend on TikTok
People on TikTok are sharing their “dumbest tattoos,” and this smiling lady wins the race for all the right reasons.
The tattoo Leah Holland, 25, chose relates to the current state of the world, but she had planned to get it for two years before finally getting it.
Leah had no idea the tattoo she got before the pandemic would cause trouble during these chaotic times.
This quote was said about her by a friend, she told BuzzFeed News. “We were just talking about things that we really admire about the other person, and he said, ‘You courageously and radically refuse to wear a mask.'”
Leah loved the quote so much that she decided to get it tattooed forever
Considering that Leah believes it’s pointless to pretend to be someone you aren’t, she got the quote tattooed.
Two days before the first COVID-19 case was reported in her city, Leah got a tattoo
The tattoo was given to the 25-year-old on March 4, 2020, and Kentucky announced its first case of COVID-19 two days later on March 6, 2020.
Leah was okay with her tattoo at first, but then things started getting weird for real.
She had no idea there would be a thing called anti-masker in the future.
“I assumed that we would probably have to wear masks and stuff. I didn’t think that the anti-maskers were going to be such a thing,” she said.@wakaflockafloccar
Leah believed in wearing masks and was afraid people might misunderstand her.
“I spent the entire summer wearing cardigans so that could not be misconstrued,” she said. “For most of the summer, I was mortified.”
As soon as Leah spotted the new trend on TikTok, she knew she had to participate
Leah and her mother, who is not a fan of tattoos, loved reading the hilarious comments on her now-viral video.
Leah’s mom posted a picture of her wearing the mask with the tattoo calling her a hypocrite, but she made sure to emphasize that it was just a joke.
Leah, on the other hand, says the timing of the tattoo was unfortunate, but now “it feels hilarious.”
“It’s just a funny story now. I can laugh about it,” she said. “I think it’s funny when other people are like, ‘I laughed so hard.’ I’m laughing about it too!”
Now Leah is also less self-conscious as she was the year before.
“It’s part of the thing of realizing that people aren’t looking at you as much as you think they are,” she said.
“It’s not really worth me being self-conscious about it.”
