Lindsay Lohan appeared at a Los Angeles court yesterday (despite claiming she was too sick with a respiratory infection to fly) with two new tattoos in tow. The 26-year-old "Canyons" star flew from New York to L.A. to face charges relating to her summer 2012 car crash.
On the inside of her right arm, Lohan sported a pair of red triangles and the words "What Dreams May Come." Many of us know those words from the title of a 1998 Robin Williams drama about a dead physician who searches for his wife in the afterlife. But the film was actually based on a 1978 novel by the same name by Richard Matheson, who took the title from "Hamlet."
During the eponymous Shakespeare character's famous "To be, or not to be..." speech, he says the following: "For in that sleep of death what dreams may come/When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,/Must give us pause."
Lohan's mortal coil has been tightening over the past few months, first with a damning NY Times article about her behaviour on the "Canyons" set and then with co-star James Deen calling her a "child," not to mention the ongoing saga of her parents' relationship. It has also just been announced that she will not be appearing in the "Machete" sequel, "Machete Kills."
"We thought to (sic) bring her back because we like that character, but it didn’t fit into the story,” director Robert Rodriguez told MTV on Wednesday. You may remember that Lohan, who played the "nun with a gun" in the film, was reportedly cut from the original film's trailer and credits in 2010 after she violated her 2007 DUI arrest probation.

On Wednesday, the troubled starlet also sported another new tattoo, this one on her right hand down to her thumb, which simply read: "I leave before being left. I decide."
