Lindsay LohanYikes! Have you seen Lindsay Lohan’s new ink? The troubled starlet arrived in Los Angeles for court Wednesday morning bearing two seriously disturbing new tattoos.

The one on her upper right arms reads simply: "What dreams may come." Shakespeare lovers will recognize the quote as being from Hamlet's famous "to be or not to be" speech, in which the poor prince ponders whether or not to commit suicide. He's wondering what "dreams may come" in the sleep of death. Pretty grim stuff, LiLo. 

The next one is equally unnerving: "I leave before being left. I decide." Apparently this is a famous Brigitte Bardot quote on the glamour girl's relationship strategy, but juxtaposed with the other phrase and what we already know of Lindsay's unstable life, it's scary. And in fact it brings to mind another famous bombshell that Lindsay Lohan has a seriously unhealthy obsession with: the doomed beauty Marilyn Monroe.

In addition to her unsettling tattoos, Lindsay accessorized her cap-sleeved black dress with platform Christian Louboutin heels, giant sunglasses, and a classic LiLo fake tan. I can’t even THINK what was going through Dina Lohan’s mind as she escorted her daughter, yet again, to court -- this time over a car crash last summer that could land Lindsay in jail (though as we know jail for celebs in Hollywood is pretty theoretical).

Maybe Dina was just glad Lindsay didn't redo that F*** YOU manicure she sported to her last court appearance. One thing is for certain: whether these tattoos are permanent or not, they’re a loud and clear distress signal. This poor girl needs help with a lot more than her wardrobe choices, and it really doesn't seem like she’s getting it.

What do you think about Linday’s new tats: just another grab for attention or a serious cry for help?
