Ouch Maps: Let People Know Where You Hurt

Ever had a co-worker give you a well-meaning slap on the back right where you got sunburned the day before? Or your spouse put their arm around you and unknowingly squeeze right on your huge bruise from last weekend’s bike crash? Don’t you think it would be great if we could stop this madness?

Me too. That’s why I created Ouch Maps on Tuesday. Ouch Maps are more than just a hastily-drawn pen sketch made on a moving train. Ouch Maps help communicate to loved ones, kids, co-workers and friends exactly where you hurt. It’s easy. Simply:

  1. Print off the below template
  2. Fill in the blank with body parts you don’t want anyone to touch
  3. use a red pen or crayon to illustrate the location of where you hurt
  4. Hang it on your kitchen refrigerator, office door, or cubicle wall, to let everyone know

Scroll down for some examples of how to use Ouch Maps.
