Today, Martha Stewart asked the world a very important question, one the world perhaps never thought to wonder, and yet is far better off now knowing the answer to. It is this: What would life be like if Martha Stewart were covered in tattoos?

In an Instagram earlier this afternoon, Stewart posted one of her old modeling shots that had been Photoshopped to include tattoos covering her arms, legs, and neck. Though the original creator is unknown, the image appears to have been circulating for at least a year on Pinterest.

"An old modeling photo of me enhanced with modern day tattoos," she captioned the photo, then asked her followers, "Do you like? Do you love? Not that I would do such a thing but it is a bit appealing?"

Well? Is it? Do you like? Do you love? This, by the way, is an amazing caption for literally any Instagram photo. Cast your vote below.
