There’s nothing like scrolling through a bunch of terrible tattoo nightmares and sitting back in gratitude that we’re not the ones featured in this article… (unless you are!) Read on to find out which tattoos made it onto the list of the most regretful inking experiences of all time. It’s totally worth the read!
The Bad, the Hilarious, and the Ugly: The Very Best of Regretful TattoosPublished 7 months ago
Not only tonight. This young woman was so obsessed with the night sky that she decided to tattoo it on her chest. Before we knew what was going on here, there were several ideas as to what was going on there.
First people thought it was a young woman craving some freckles. Later on they thought it was a coverup for some skin condition, so it sounded ok, but when the real reason was finally understood, social media went crazy.
She definitely isn’t riding fame from her childhood days winning "Spelling Bee," that’s for sure. Maybe she realized that if she got an ugly chest tattoo, in that ‘gangsta’ looking script with the word ‘finally’ spelled wrong, it would make her famous.
Jokes on us, actually, because we’re sharing her picture and tattoo all over the internet. Looks like she did get famous after all. Was it worth those 5 minutes, miss? We highly doubt it.
She sure did. There’s no mistaking what kind of girl this is. Normally, a tramp stamp tattoo of any kind in this area is enough, but she took it one step further to proudly tell the world who she is - White Trash. There’ll be no trying to cover this one up.
If you’re that bold and brave, then it’s booty shorts and crop tops from now until - well, forever. Unless she wants to upgrade her status as a social being, and get it removed. Hey, she seems to be working it quite well.
We've all seen those Sci-fi movies where the huge, bulky villain turns out to be either an alines navigating a human body, or a very small creature compensating for its size with a significantly larger robot body.
But in all honesty, we didn't think someone would aspire to be this type of alien villain. As we see it, if you ask the gentleman in this picture, there's a good chance he will tell you all about his genius plan to take over the planet using his superior intellect.
No, she will probably never get away with dating a vegetarian or vegan in her life. Unless some serious life and belief change happens. And in that case, we’d hope the laser removal technology is top-notch by that time.
We actually didn’t know anyone could love meat that much. We're giving points for dedication, but not enough points to make up for all the ones you lost with how a horribly ugly tattoo this turned out to be. Maybe you should have kept your meat love in your heart, just to yourself.
He never will. This Norwegian man took his love for fast food to a whole new level by tattooing a McDonald’s receipt on his body. First up, we’re impressed at your dedication to your favorite restaurant chain - we’re sure McDonald’s is thrilled. Secondly, why? Just, why?
Was it a particularly momentous day? An extra tasty meal you wanted to remember? We’d actually love to know the reason behind this atrocious tattoo, surely there’s a good story to tell.
Oh, dear! At least she isn’t alive to witness this. Portrait tattoos are extra tricky even for a skilled artist. And only a few out there are impressive enough to not make it on a like this one. However, this one sadly made it to the top of the list. If the intention was to imprint the beauty of this iconic lady on their body, it did just the opposite.
Not only will they remember that time they took a whim on an artist that clearly needed to practice his shading skills before he did the final piece, but it also seems that this person will now be creepily followed by a scary-looking face staring back at them. We wonder what the artist thought of his own work.
Have you by any chance seen her in your local news? This woman made headlines all around the world. The drama doesn't just lie in the horrible taste of stars inked all over her face, but also in the story that comes with it.
Apparently, she fell asleep in the chair and tried to blame her regretful decision on the artist. The other side of the story (a little more believable, because who falls asleep while getting a tattoo?!) is that she ended her drunken adventure with a GREAT idea to express her inner cosmic-star… all over her face.
We admit the Ninja Turtles are pretty cool, as long as they remain fantastic animated television characters. However, are they cool to the point of wanting a full-color nose tattoo of them? We think not. Even though the colors look quite impressive in their vibrancy, there’s no getting around the fact that this is a TURTLE TATTOO ON A NOSE.
We’re hoping for the sake of this person’s social life and dignity that it is only painting and not a real tattoo. Imagine having to explain the story behind that to your partner... if you still have one.
Is this the opposite tattoo to the one with an image of Jesus on his cross? Hey, we’ve always appreciated the simple genius of this depiction of evolution, but was it really necessary to ink it permanently on your body? Was it some kind of reminder that you’re human?
Or were you once an ape? We’re not quite sure what this person was thinking. Clearly, they’re into evolution and history, and more precisely a fan of Darwin. Great. We still don’t think this is tattoo-worthy material, though.
The award has to go to this person. It’s just too hilarious that they managed to get this particular word spelled wrong, of all words existing in the dictionary. Sure, it could have been on purpose, for the irony of it, but it’s more likely a case of no one noticing the incorrect spelling before it was too late.
I think the question we are all asking ourselves here is, do they regret this one? Or has it made them so famous on the internet (this tattoo picture has been around a lot), that they are actually pretty pleased with themselves in getting in the spotlight?
And we still aren’t impressed enough to call this a ‘good’ tattoo. It’s silly, and pretty ugly to our opinion, even if the person was trying to make an ironic statement. Clearly, the message here is ‘see what happens when you don’t plan ahead?’ You get half-finished words and tattoos and situations that make people just a little bit uncomfortable trying to work out if they did this on purpose or not.
We’re giving them the benefit of the doubt and saying they are making a statement and knew what they were doing, planning ahead to make it look like they weren’t planning ahead. But still, it could always be a case of miscounting and actually a mistake. We hope not.
This young woman is a model. She was very successful and landed some amazing modeling jobs including some of the big-paying perfume and cosmetics companies. But then it all changed.
One day this young model decided to add some ink to her body. There was nothing wrong or embarrassing about the tattoos themselves, and no matter the reason for the sudden change in "body design", but the fact is that the number of jobs she received declined drastically.
It's no secret that former reality show star Jemma Lucy is a fan of tattoos. She's got hundreds of them in very visible pieces of body art. Her neck, arms, legs, hands, just about all of her body has some kind of ink on it.
Just a few weeks after breaking up with her ex-beau Stephen Bear (from Celebrity Big Brother), Jemma announced the launch of a dating app for tattooed people, which is available via phone, tablet, and computer. The app is called Dating Ink, and is specifically catered to those who love tattoos, not just those who have them.
…And shall not ever be tattooed on another person. It seems as if this guy was inspired by J.K Rowling’s famous Harry Potter series to do the whole ‘face on the back of your head’ trick. The outcome - a deeply unsettling, scary-looking tattoo that will make even grown adults jump with fear.
The extra addition of his eyebrow hairs and beard on the face is clever, but not clever enough for us to forgive the craziness of actually following through with such an ugly tattoo.
Indeed. Our thoughts are: Why? What kind of deeper, contemplative meaning did this person wish to express? It’s actually intriguing to us, and if that was the intention - to have a conversation starter, then well done. We’d definitely be stopping this person to ask what her tattoo is about.
Beyond the curiosity, however, we still put this on the list of regretful tattoos because, well, it’s a chair. Honestly, when they get sick of answering what it’s all about, they’re going to be totally sick of this tattoo as well. We give it a few months, and the feeling of regret will probably appear.
We all know those people. The ones so in love with cheeseburgers that their lives depend on it. However, we’ve never seen an ode to a cheeseburger in the form of an idyllic image of it tattooed on someone's skin. The palm tree at sunset adds that extra little touch of confusion for us wondering, why?!
Is fast food your definition of paradise? Are you hoping to take your cheeseburger on holiday with you? We know what this person would bring on a deserted island if they could only take one thing.
There’s so much wrong with this tattoo that we don’t know where to begin. Okay, let's start with the grammar. ‘Its is’, first off, makes no sense. Did the artist not know that? Or were they both beginner-level English speakers just ‘winging it’?
Secondly, Bon Jovi’s name had a bit of confusion there, coming out as a backward reading ‘Jon Bovi.’ Lastly, was it his intention to have the script look like a 4-year-old wrote it? As a matter of fact, it looks like the 4-year-old also spelled it, too. Maybe the tattoo isn’t an ode to Bon Jovi at all, but to the person’s 4-year-old kid.
It really seems like this person walked into the tattoo parlor with the state of mind: ‘do what you can, Mr. Artist. No, I don’t need to see your prior work, I trust you’ve got it.’ In this case, we don’t think the customer should have trusted the artist at all.
It’s not all on the artist, however. There should have been a point where the outline was made and the person gave his thumbs up to go ahead with the design. So, WHY did they think that this poorly drawn picture of their favorite band was something they were happy to have on their bodies for the rest of their lives?
Another fan tattoo enters (and it won’t be the last!). You know that joke - when you're talking about not forgetting a certain piece of information… ‘I should get it tattooed on my head.’ Well, this lady took the advice a little too literally.
She’ll never forget her passion for this rapper/singer now. Neither will any person she ever comes across and can see her face. This tattoo is the definition of obvious (and regretful). Drake’s probably super flattered, and maybe a little scared.
This is Nadine Anderson and she is a nursing assistant. What you need to know about her is this: "I'm terrified of needles believe it or not." She told The Sun in an interview after she got her most recent tattoo and now 90% of her body is inked. Her first one was at the age of 18.
She said that the addiction was on the spot and a month later she was back for more, and never looked back. She is 23 now, with more than 200 hours under the needle. She spent around US$ 27,000 on ink. She's also into body modification and had some stuff done to her, including a split tongue.
You might be in love with your cats, but there are more subtle ways of showing your love to your furry friends, and the whole world. We think that inking your eyebrows as napping cats is not one of them.
This woman looks young, so what will happen in a few years? These cat-brows are stuck for life. Erasing them will also leave a mark, so she will need to find a career in pet stores only, right?
We really hope this is a result of a bet this dude had with his wife. Otherwise, we cannot understand what was he thinking. With a tattoo like this we can even question if he's even in a relationship.
One thing is for sure, he would wish for hair like that! Long and beautiful hair is something we all want, so maybe this guy just wants it too much.
Who can guess where the words on this man’s arms are extracted from? Read carefully… have you seen it before? It seems to be a rendition of the words that pop up on our computer screen when it randomly fails and shuts itself down. In that situation, the words have a purpose.
In this context, however, marked on this man's right arm in bold typing - what could possibly be the purpose here? A reminder to always back up his work before he loses it all in a system crash? He must really do some important work.
Yes, we had to bring in Mike Tyson on the list. This famous boxer was already known to be a little, ahem… different. Indeed, biting someone's ear off lends you that title. And his face tattoo solidifies the title even more.
He drew the attention of millions when he got this tribal face tattoo design. Was it to scare away potential fighters? Because, honestly, you didn’t need a tattoo to do that, Tyson. Your past actions were totally enough.
This one falls under the category of all of the most misspelled tattoos ever seen. We can accept this if you’re getting tattooed in a distant location, as part of a tribal ritual where no one speaks the language. Though, now that we have Google at our fingertips or just another person we can ask, there’s no excuse to misspelling a word as common and simple as ‘courage.’
He really should have taken a note from his own book and embodied a little courage to ask some advice on the spelling before he decided to permanently etch it into his body.
Just - wow. That’s one of the strangest playlists we’ve seen on one arm. Actually, maybe the only playlist we’ve seen tattooed on an arm. Still, what kind of a person listens to some Nickelback in the same session as Avril Lavigne.
Is there a more detailed story beyond the obviousness of having a list of some of the most uncool (well, uncool now) names in the 90s and 2000s' music? Or it is as simple and silly as it seems? You be the judge.
The neck tattoo - a tricky one to get right and look acceptable unless you’re part of a gang or an ex-con. We’re sure there are some decent ones out there. Sadly, this one isn’t one of them. And clearly, he didn’t fit into the categories above.
Who’s Jeb? If they’re a real politician, it seems they didn’t get far into the public eye for any of us to know about them. We suspect it’s more a case of this person having a friend called ‘Jeb’, and there’s some inside joke going on about presidency. Or the tattoo wearer himself is thinking of running for office in the future. We’re not sure that the ink will help your campaign efforts, though.
At least he never has to remember to jump on the cause for Movember. He’s got a permanent mustache now on his upper lip. Some men might have a hard time making the commitment to grow a mo, but not this guy. He’s taken on his ‘family tradition’ to a more intense degree, etching a mustache onto his bare skin.
On another note, not only is it an unattractive tattoo - but we also can’t help but wonder how much that might have hurt. Think of cutting yourself while shaving and multiply that by a million.
Not so. It’s almost enough to take our appetite away, actually. Is this a tattoo dedicated to the person’s love of cakes and sundaes? Or is it supposed to be a (failed) attempt at wit, highlighting how tasty this person’s love handles are?
Even if the images were actually decent pieces of art - which these aren’t - we don’t think anyone could pull off food and beverage tattoos. Especially in that child-like color palette. Our advice? Keep the cakes and sundaes for your mouth, not your body. It’s tastier - for everyone involved.
Maybe the style was meant to be that hand-drawn sketch look that’s all the rage these days. Or maybe the tattoo artist wasn't ready to take their training wheels off yet. It’s fine if you’re looking for a specific style in your tattoo, and it’s fine if that style is simple and ‘natural’ looking. What’s not fine is not being able to tell the difference.
If you’re going for ‘style’, next time make sure that the style is actually obvious, not confusing for anyone trying to tell whether it’s an artistic decision, or a drunken mistake (by the tattoo artist!)
This one is quite impressive in the creativity behind it. To be honest, if anyone could attempt to pull this tattoo off, it’s this guy. He’s not doing badly either. Still, we had to feature him in this list of regretful tattoos.
Think about it - when he ages, and the skin starts to wrinkle and sag a little more, so too will Mr. Bull along with it. Regretful for most people, for this man - maybe not so?
Did they get paid to do this? If not, they should've been. Someone forward this pic on to the marketing representatives of Chuck Taylor Shoes. A few criticisms of the art, however. #1: if you’re committing to the whole shoe being tattooed, then go all the way. They stopped halfway, leaving the foot bare through the sides and bottom.
Real shoes cover the whole feet, and this one is clearly trying to look like a real one. #2: Red? Really? You know that’s going to fade to a less popular style of pink Chuck Taylors. And #3: Weren’t your real shoes enough? Everything goes out of style at some point - fashion is not permanent.
Please tell us that the large eye circle is not a real tattoo, but just a permanent marker situation. Even her newborn knows something isn’t right, and he’s only been alive for less than an hour. If he can tell, everyone else can, too.
Plus, if you wanted to make it look like a monocle, it really didn’t live up to the image. It looks like the baby's older brother scribbled on her face. Either invest in some excellent makeup, mommy, or take some money out of the college fund savings to go toward the removal of this one.
Not plastered as in ‘drunk’. We mean plastered with patriotic symbols all over his body. Maybe he was sick of being asked where he was from when on vacation, or maybe he really does love his homeland Australia.
When every second something is out to try to kill you - spiders, snakes, the weather - why wouldn’t you be proud to call Australia home? He certainly is. It also seems to be the definition of ‘bogan.’ Don’t know the term? Look it up.
Oh hey, look. It’s another nip-tat. Another regretful, pointless nip-tat. Maybe he’s friends with the bull-ring guy. You know that friend… the one who makes inappropriate jokes and constantly gets himself in trouble…
That is definitely this guy. Unless he is actually handicapped, we hope he’s not seen shirtless in the company of people who are. Actually, scratch that - we hope he is. That would definitely be an interesting thing to witness him explain the logic behind this ugly, and frankly disrespectful tattoo.
…Another bad decision is made. Who else remembered the dramatic head-shaving incident that was splashed all over the media when Britney Spears had her famous meltdown moment?
This person will remember it for life. What’s horrifying about this tattoo isn’t actually the fact that they chose this image (which is still pretty terrible), but actually, it’s the creepy quality of the portrait that makes it look like they’re walking around with a cursed Britney on them.
This comes under the category of trashy tattoos for tramps. We're sorry for the owner to say this, but we expect it’s something she already knows. There’s a clear signal being presented in this image, one she clearly meant to portray.
Is it rude to ask how many rides she’s already taken? Since it’s a rude tattoo in its nature, we suspect she would openly share it anyways. The only thing with this tattoo is this: considering how big it is, does that mean she always has to wear a one-piece swimwear in the company of her parents? If not, that’s an interesting one to explain to them!
This is taking ‘art lover’ to a whole new level. The color itself (being dreadfully bold) is done quite well, and even the small details and textures seem fairly close to the style of impressionism they were maybe trying to go for. That doesn’t change the fact that his entire face is BLUE!
Well, not his entire face. At least he left some nose parts free of ink. Do you think it’s real? Many people would say face paint, but you’ve already seen it in the tattoos above - people do some pretty weird things. This guy included.
We always thought that a grandpa with tattoos would seem a little cooler, and a little less creepy. The fact that the photo looks like a mug shot, possibly when incarcerated or in a psychiatric ward, doesn't help. These demonic-like scribbles that make no sense almost require him to put some horns on his head and grow a tail.
The worst part is, if he really were a grandpa, he would definitely remain the favorite anymore. The poor grandchildren must be scarred for life. On to the next one!
Is that what his friends and family did when they saw him? Maybe even what he did when he looked at himself in the mirror? Here is a poorly drawn ice cream outline with a lightning bolt coming out of it. We can just imagine now him explaining what he wanted to the artist.
‘Where would you like that’ the artist asks, ‘right on my cheek, please, sir.’ What an odd situation that must have been. And now he has the odd experience to live with this on his face for the rest of his life. Regretful? Definitely. Even if you love ice cream.
An onion painted on the armpit… this tattoo could be saying many things or nothing at all. First, the specific message she’s trying to get across: my armpits smell. Then, my armpits smell like onion. I love onions. Onions are pretty. Onions are most pretty on armpits. Which one do you think it is?
Again, the alternative is that a dare or loss bet led her to this less than tasteful decision. We’ll admit, at least, that it’s a decent onion art piece. The tattoo artist can be proud of that (and only that).
The "Happy Days" fans will be both excited, and mildly confused, at this rendition of one of the favorite characters of the show, The Fonz. Blending your love of food and Fonz may have seemed like a good idea at the time (did it really, though?), but 10 years down the track, at your wedding, honeymoon, neighbors pool party or family gathering, you’re probably going to be having different thoughts.
Let’s keep the hotdogs in our hands, and The Fonz on the television, shall we?
Honestly, we’ve seen more nipple tattoos on this list than the average arm sleeve design. It must be a new trend sweeping the world of tattoo loving people who don’t really think things through enough. That’s what it seems like with this guy. Just because it would be funny to have an ugly shellfish on your body, squeezing your nipple with its claws, doesn’t mean that it’s going to keep being funny years after you tattoo it on your body.
This is the kind of thing best kept for one of those conversations that start with ‘you know what would be funny…?’ Next time, when you have this kind of idea - laugh about it with your friends, and then let it go. He grasped onto this idea a little too much - about as much as this lobster is grasping on to him!
We’d like to know. Maybe this woman does, too. Did she just decide halfway through getting this image on her arm that she actually preferred not to? Maybe she angered the artist enough for them to scribble nonsense at the bottom instead of finishing off the lady's body.
Either way, it’s one of the ugliest and cringeworthy tattoos for the simple reason that it is very clear that there’s a mistake somewhere in this process. We bet she’s saving up for laser removal if it's a real one, and that she showered right after getting it if it's a fake.
Yes, step very lightly. Like you’re walking on eggshells. Like you’re expecting maybe a bit of backlash for this tattoo. Because we’re sure he has definitely got some already. Now even if the intended purpose is to make a political statement on the horrid past of the white supremacy regime, it’s a bold way to do it.
Not to mention, the people still involved in these extremist groups would have a very intense reaction if they were to see this. We guess that this is his political statement due to his own skin color, as he appears to be Afro-American. Though the only other possible explanation we can think of is that he’s blind? Or he lost a big bet?
Is she a pilot? Or dating one? That seems more likely. Coming home to show her special beau, ‘look what I got for you baby!’ At least it’s not his name. At least she can fall back on the story in the future if the relationship ends by saying that she’s an avid aviator learning to fly.
This still leaves us with some confusion though - why are the planes so darn angry?! Is it the fact that they are feeling totally ridiculous on this woman’s chest, diving down into who knows where…
Yep. That’s true friendship, indeed. Etching your friend's name on your forearm forevermore to show them how undying your love is for them. Was that what was happening here? Or maybe he passed out during a night out with his prankster friends who happened to own a tattoo gun.
That story seems to fit well, considering that the writing itself looks like an inexperienced artist did it, or even a small child. We just hope they all stay friends forever. Otherwise, he’s going to have to find some new ones with the same names. We wonder how many Patsy’s there are out there…
Definitely not a sweet one. Fairytale tattoos are quite popular actually. For the fantasy lovers who want to express their inner longing to be a child and believe in magic again. That’s not exactly what this person was expressing, however. Clearly, there’s a reason behind the fairy looking so sad.
Is it because she was confined to someone’s body, and can never be free again? Is it because she knew it was a bad idea and that the owner of the tattoo would soon regret her existence? Maybe it’s purely because the tattoo artist did the smile from the opposite direction. Whoops. Sad fairy.
Keep them on your phone. Send them in messages, sure. Even get one of the trendy pillows shaped like your favorite emoji. But as a giant tattoo on your back - no emoji will look good there. Especially not a giant poo with swarming flies to complete it. Seriously - what was she thinking?
If this isn’t going to turn off a potential partner, or just anyone who sees her from behind, then we don’t know what will. It’s the opposite of inviting. Unless that was you’re tactic all along - scare them off with a little bit poo… works every time!
Unless Nina is with the hardcore spelling police, hopefully, this was a sweet enough proposal to convince her. We bet there was some giggling - or cringing - involved in this proposal. Didn’t the tattoo artist notice?
Surely, we all know how to spell the word 'marry'! What we like about this horrifying tattoo is that it really does express the right kind of energy going into a long term partnership. Nothing says commitment like inking yourself permanently. It’s a testament to how much this man wants to ‘merry’ Nina. You’re one lucky gal!
That’s not quite the word we would use to describe how this tattoo makes us feel. More like ‘creeped out’ and ‘cringing’. Really, man, you couldn’t have just settled for a tiny wee smile tattoo on your body?
At least if it was a small one, you would've had the option to cover it. However, there’s no escaping this image now - forever etched into our minds and influencing the way we feel about big-teeth smiling. What a sad thing to do to us! Thanks, buddy.
Here we have another brand rep - or wannabe Nike brand rep. Did he get paid for it? Or maybe he’s already part of the company and just extremely passionate about his life purpose selling people athletic footwear. Either way, does he realize that it’s a little redundant, given that it’s only going to be seen when he isn’t wearing Nikes?
And, when he actually is wearing his sneakers, no one will notice the fact that he’s got the logo tattooed on his foot because the real logo is already there on the shoe? Our conclusion is - you shouldn’t have bothered. It was one time when listening to the motivational slogan ‘just do it’ was a bad idea.
What do you think? If they are, then bless them, but we think there are probably better ways to express your love for a specific culture and land. This really does come across as a joke (since the phrase is usually meant to be a joke in its use).
When jokes have a cultural slant - especially related to skin color - then they’re often a sensitive topic and coming across as racist. We wonder what kind of backlash this person has gotten. If you want to express that love, then find a more subtle and respectable way to do it. This just seems like a poorly thought-out decision.
Seriously. That onion tattoo definitely seems to be fine now, compared to this atrocious image. We get it, it’s an X-rated joke that your friends absolutely love you for. But if you’re looking to ever settle down - or even just TALK to a lady again, you’re going to have some trouble now.
This is the definition of classless. Never will he attract any classy woman ever again. Come to think of it, if he is the type of person to make this decision for a tattoo, classy ladies are probably not his style anyway. Carry on then, with your ugly armpit picture.
That’s exactly what this tattoo looks like. It’s actually scary. Not just scary in the fact that he thought getting a face on his face was a good idea, but legitimately scary in that this baby looks possessed. Imagine not just walking around with people seeing an extra face on you, but a creepy killer-child that could possibly be on the cover of a horror movie.
It’s just all sorts of wrong. The shading. The child’s expression. Heck, his own expression. Maybe he finally saw himself in the mirror when the artist was done and was trying to figure out how not to freak out and have a meltdown.
This is so overdone that it just lost all humor. Who else has seen this? The six-pack of beer that was created to mock his lack of abs is an oversold joke and an overdone tattoo. We commend him for his obvious comfort and confidence in his physical body - well done in that regard, sir.
However, that still doesn’t make up for the fact that this tattoo is terrible. Has he ever planned to get into shape? Because if he has, then what would he do? The tattoo would totally lose its meaning. Guess he’s not thinking of going for a run - or giving up the beers - anytime soon.
Well, the tattoo is at least expressing some truth here. They look like they were actually properly telling the truth in being ‘too cool’ for school since they never learned how to properly spell it. Or was the tattoo artist too cool, so much that they were the one making the mistake? Either way, it looks like a 5-year-old did this. Unless the artist or tattoo owner (or both) dropped out of school at the age of 5.
This tattoo is proof that even though you feel like you’re too cool, school is still a helpful thing to do in your life if you want a basic skill like, say, spelling correctly.
Uh-oh, looks like this person entrusted their 4-year-old kid to do the artistic rendition of a smurf for their tattoo. Cute, but maybe not the best idea. On one hand, this little guy is adorable - the kid can draw. On the other hand, adorable for a piece of paper, but not permanently etched onto a body.
Even if you’ll think of your kid for the rest of your life when you see these sweet big eyes and blue splotch on your skin, we think just a painting stuck on the fridge would have sufficed.
He’s right about one thing. The tattoo slapped across his forehead is the perfect description of this person. Anyone willing to get ‘stupid’ right there on their face, has to be just that - extremely stupid. How on earth will he ever be taken seriously again? So maybe friends and family never did take him seriously.
Though, what about potential employers? Or the children he might have? Or a partner? Let alone random people in the street… he’s just crushed himself socially in one simple word.
This lady decided that earning money the old fashioned way, through an honest job, wasn’t efficient enough for her. She wanted a good deal of money, without having to really do anything. Except for getting tattooed by a random brand’s URL. Easy enough, right?
She auctioned off her forehead space on eBay, with the winner paying $10,000. The sweet part of this cringe-worthy story is that she apparently used the money to pay for her child’s private school fees. That kid better go to college!
She certainly does. For any gaming nerd, this is probably their ultimate girlfriend. Not to mention that she comes along with a handy and rare cheat code for everyone to use. Score! Seriously though, we wonder if this is a real tattoo with just terrible quality shading of colors because it totally looks like a kid colored her in with some crayons.
Actually, it looks like they even created the design themselves. Like any gamer who doesn’t appreciate crappy graphics, maybe they won’t be so impressed at the quality of this one, too.
Good thing McDonald’s restaurants have a dress code for shirts. This man would totally leave all of the children scared for life. It’s too much. The full-back placement, the expression, and rendering of our much loved fast food clown to be demonized and evil.
Beyond the concept of the tattoo, the quality and colors are also poorly made. A tattoo like that takes hours to do. Surely that was hours for the person (or artist) to rethink the design and maybe just choose a simple and less scary tribal tattoo instead. Or even the cheeseburger! Anything would've been better than this.
If you’ve not been living under a rock, and have come across the everyday social media of millennials posting every meal they’ve had, you’ve probably gathered that avocado has become a little bit of a star. It wasn’t enough to declare their love for avos this way, though.
This person wanted to show more than just their followers how much they enjoy avocado, to extend it to the world - or whoever sees their tattoo. There you go, now everyone knows you’re an avo freak. Worth the lifelong tattoo commitment?
No for the trashy font. No for the super cliché phrase. No for the placement on his bare chest. And extra no for misspelling the ‘too’ as ‘to.’ This is a dismal failure on all counts. Can no dream be too big, really?
Possibly his dream of becoming a creative writer is a little too big. The spelling talent isn’t there, and neither is any kind of creativity. Sorry, man. You tried to be cool and inspirational and it turned into a regretful tattoo situation.
There is really none. Not for anyone who thinks this is an appropriate thing to put on a body. Or on paper. Or anywhere. If it’s a feminist statement, they’re going about it the wrong way.
This is hardly liberating for the female population. It’s just not a good look for anyone at all. We can think of absolutely no reason - or excuse - for this to be a real thing. What on earth was the artist thinking when he agreed to this?
This is too much. Too gross, rude, disrespectful, ugly, and just plain bad. The artistic additions of cobwebs and shattered windows are even more confusing, especially because it meant that the person put some ‘thought’ into the design.
Clearly, they didn’t put enough thought into the actual decision of getting a tattoo. We get it, you have something to say. Think you’re clever? We definitely don’t.
