My friend cannot decide whether or not to get a tattoo

So she decided to take a survey. She sent this to a bunch of her friends to find out what we think. She informs me that this is very serious, but here it is for your entertainment. I'm taking her name out, and replacing it with the initial L. Those of you who know her will probably figure it out anyway.
