The Internet went into a state of frenzy last week when #TheDress made everyone wonder: “White and gold? Or black and blue?”

This week, reports have emerged of a man in Texas named Daniel Howland who will likely never forget that mind-boggling, eye-tricking outfit -- or the total meltdown it triggered. That’s because Howland reportedly got an image of the dress (in black and blue) tattooed on his leg, accompanied by the words “white and gold?”

“I pretty much got it because, I mean, I keep up with all the social memes and hysteria and whatever, and this is the only one that I really couldn’t wrap my brain around. So I just decided to do it,” Howland, a piercing artist who is heavily tattooed, told Buzzfeed of his new ink.

Howland added that while he saw the dress -- whose colors are perceived differently by different people -- as black and blue, he was able to see it as white and gold “after a couple of drinks.”

"I thought it was funny that it upset a lot of people," Howland told WABC-TV of the confounding dress, adding that he got the tattoo done on an area of his leg that he “didn’t care about.”

The tattoo is “great,” he told the news outlet. “It’s just dumb.”
