TBT: The Sharpie Phase

Middle School, aka the good old days. The days when life was carefree and wasn’t consumed by homework and exams. Don’t you wish you could go back? Well… maybe not.

Thinking back to the Middle School years, I’m sure it brings back a lot of memories, right? For instance, the Sharpie phase.

The Sharpie Tattoo

Back when no one was old enough to get a real tattoo, everyone thought it was cool to draw on each other with Sharpies and walk around with their “fake” tattoos. Recently, Kendall Jenner instagrammed a picture of her Sharpie tattoo, so maybe they’re coming back?

Cast Signing

As soon as one person in the school found out that someone had a broken arm, it was a race to see who could sign the cast first. Within minutes, that cast would be completely covered in Sharpie. And for the person with the broken arm, really the only upside to that is the popularity that comes along with the signing of the cast.

Drawing on Everything and Anything

Why was it that when you weren’t supposed to color or draw on something you would do it anyways? Especially all the boys out there. If you ever had an assignment book in Middle School, I’m sure it was covered in Sharpie and at times inappropriate drawings… thanks boys.

Nowadays, kids are drawing all over their faces with Sharpies for sporting events. If that doesn’t scream school spirit then I don’t know what does. I think we can all be happy that phase of our lives is over.
