We've all wanted a tattoo at one point or another. Usually, it's because we're going through a life crisis/rebellious phase, or are sentimental/drunk enough to think a matching best friend or sister tattoo is a good idea (It never is).

Holding, typing, styling, high-fiving -- your hands go through a lot on a daily basis. But they usually end up at the bottom of the totem pole that is our beauty routine.
