7 Times the Monogram Trend Went Too Far

Many Southern women live by the principle, “If it’s not moving, monogram it.”

A monogram, a motif consisting of one’s initials, can personalize an item and give it a touch of good ol’ Southern class.

From tote bags to t-shirts to necklaces, monograms are showing up everywhere these days. But sometimes the monogram trend can get a little out of hand. Here are ten times the monogram trend went too far.

Monograms are usually used to mark something as your personal property – kind of like marking your territory. So why would you need to monogram your nails? How do you lose them if they’re part of your body?

2. Monogram tattoo
