Woman Uses Clever Tattoo To Remind People That She's Deaf

One woman came up with an incredibly creative way to remind people that she was hard of hearing.

A user on the website Imgur (we don't know her name- just that her username is 'raingoose') blew people's minds when she posted a picture of one of the most creatively indicative tattoos I've ever seen. Since posting, the image has reached over 2 million views.

We've all seen that little symbol pop up on our computer screens before, but 'raingoose' 's use of it gives the image a whole new meaning.

She stated along with her photo that, since she's deaf in her left ear, she thought the tattoo would be a clever and polite way to remind people before they tried to speak to her in it. Genius.

The photo obviously inspired users with similar stories, and soon enough, photos of other clever deaf awareness tattoos started popping up on the thread alongside praise for raingoose's creativity and sense of humor.

This guy had a similar idea to 'raingoose'...
