When Tattoos Go Horribly Wrong
Let’s hope this woman stays a Drake fan for life. If not, she better marry somebody named Drake ASAP! I can’t judge her though, if I had gotten a tattoo at the height of my celebrity obsession, I might have a tattoo of Jonathan Taylor Thomas on my forehead. At least this lady can cut bangs if her love for Drake fades (because unfortunately the tattoo will not).
Hey I Just Met You
These men must really love Carly Rae Jepson to immortalize her hit song on their beautiful man thighs. More than likely they got drunk and lost a bet. But who knows? Maybe the lyrics really speak to them.
This tattoo is beyond bizarre. It’s like a cartoon portrait of a guy who kind of looks like Ryan Gosling, but this artist put his head on a spider. Pretty creepy; but at least they spelled his name right!
Christopher Walken is a phenomenal actor, dancer, and writer – however getting his face tattooed on your arm is kind of weird. When you add the skin tone of Frankenstein’s monster, and a severe case of double pink eye – this tattoo is especially frightening!
This person’s Karl Pilkington tattoo is pretty strange looking – but posting this tattoo got his attention! Hopefully they are best friends now.
Celebrities aren’t the only tattoo muses. Many people choose to get portraits of their loved ones’ faces. As you can see…. They usually turn out slightly uncanny. Opt for your kid’s name instead – but you know, spelled correctly!
It’s not just human portraits that can take a wrong turn either. Getting your deceased pet’s face poorly tattooed on your body might not be the best way to remember them.
Tiger Band aid
This tiger probably isn’t somebody’s pet, but somebody loved him enough to have his face permanently marked on their skin. This poor tiger deserved better.
I saved the best (worst!) portrait for last. I really hope that the child represented in this tattoo does not look like the actual child. And, is he eating a sock? This one is pretty painful to look at!
Be on Brand
This tattoo is amazing if your goal is for everyone within a 10-mile radius to know you love Monster energy drinks. Or maybe he’s renting his forehead out for advertising space. Effective!
Audis are nice cars, so why on earth wouldn’t you get the name and logo permanently printed on your fingers? Just be sure to trim your nails before showing your sweet new Audi tats off.
I’m Lovin’ It
Who doesn’t love MacDonald’s?
These guys really want the world to know how much they love McDonald’s. I’m more of a Burger King person myself; but to each his own! They’re obviously “lovin’ it.”
Never Forget Your Glasses
Getting a tattoo like this might not be the smartest idea this man has had. But if you can’t afford Raybans, you probably can’t afford a good tattoo of them either. But fair warning: this tattoo does not protect your eyes against harmful UV rays.
This person’s dedication to the almost obsolete Blackberry phone is highly admirable. And the “iPhone sucks” script underneath makes the piece extra elegant.
Game of Thornes
Game of Thrones has become a cultural phenomenon, so it’s no surprise people are getting themes from the show inked on their bodies. There is nothing wrong with representing your favorite TV series, but perhaps getting the catchphrase, “Winter is Coming” across your face is a little much. Talk about dedication!
Food for Thought
Who doesn’t love chicken wings? They are pretty delicious, but maybe inking them on your back, while clever, might not be the wisest decision.
This one is confusing. RIP June Cleaver on the side of a sirloin steak? Maybe there is an inside joke we are missing. I love steak, but not quite enough to permanently mark it on my body! Maybe June Cleaver would’ve been happy with a little cartoon character or something.
This lovely tattoo is a delicious avocado… but wait…. Is that a skull inside? Who knew avocados could be so edgy! This guy. This guy knew.
I cannot think of a better way to tell people on the bus you smell bad than to tattoo an onion under your armpit. I hope the other passengers’ eyes don’t start watering!
The Name Game
Let’s hope this man is still with Brenda. Let’s hope he at least knows Brenda! Getting your loved one’s name tattooed on you can be romantic… but this might be a little overkill. As long as Brenda loves it! (Brenda, blink twice if you are being held captive!)
This is a creative (and totally not tasteless!) way to honor your new wife when the old one bails over your bad decisions.
Nicknames are cute, but having an actual “babby” draw your tattoo is not cute. Oh baby girl, NO!
Where to start with this one?… The whole tattoo is bad, but “Jon Bovi” is so bad, it’s great! I hope Jon Bovi has seen this one.
Guess This Applies To Everyone
This person was so close to playing it safe. Inking “your name” on your arm can encompass any new love interest that comes into your life. But having “your nane” makes it kind of bad (okay, really bad!).
Rest in Peace
Memorial tattoos can be a beautiful expression to honor somebody you love. I bet Gradad is smiling down from Heaven. Good thing he’s too far away to see the misspelling!
This person NAILED the spelling of Grandpa. They also nailed a very creepy graveyard aesthetic that I bet Grandpa would’ve loved!
Spelling and Grammar Count
In the artist’s defense, “patience” and “patients” sound the same. Maybe they thought this person was a nurse. If not, maybe they should become one! Or invest in a large watch.
Fudge or Judge
I like the saying “Only God Can Judge Me.” But honestly, I like “Only God Can Fudge Me” even more! This one gets a pass.
You’re = You Are
This girl just wants you to live you are life. And that is very nice of her!
When choosing a tattoo artist, it is important to choose somebody with a steady hand, an eye for art, and proof they graduated from 5th grade spelling class. Maybe this lady can pass it off as irony. Because irony is very cool right now!
This whole piece doesn’t look professionally done, but perhaps if “heart” were spelled right, it wouldn’t be so bad. So close though!
Not much to say about this one except “Yikes!” Super Bowel sounds like the name of a fiber-rich superhero.
This tattoo is so sweet, but the misspelling makes it a little awkward to look at. At least his heart was in the right place!
Let me repeat again: if you are getting a tattoo in your non-native language, get a second opinion or two. Chicken noodle soup is great when you have a cold; not that great inked on your back.
Guess He Never Will
“Never don’t give up.” I actually like this one. Good life motto! (Although probably not the recipient’s objective).
This One’s Permanent
Again with the irony. Tattoos DO last forever, so maybe get your artist to run a quick spell check before firing up his gun.
There is nothing wrong with having IBS. But it probably isn’t something the whole world needs (or wants) to know every time you bend over.
He Likes Boob’s
How much do you want to bet that these classy tattoos haven’t worked yet?
Speaking of classy – there is no better way to let the world know how classy and elegant you are than to get a gigantic tattoo telling them how classy you are. Bonus points for the bling!
They Don’t Fit
Puzzle piece tattoos with best friends or lovers are actually a pretty cute idea! But make sure the pieces fit together. These two corner pieces certainly don’t. Hopefully it isn’t foreshadowing the demise of the relationship!
Please Zip It
A good way to ensure your partner loves you for who you are on the inside is to destroy your face with creepy tattoos. I’m sure nobody at the temp agency will judge your face by its cover either!
While we are talking face tattoos, I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s probably best to avoid them. If this guy ever commits a crime, there is no way the witnesses aren’t going to be able to describe the checkerboard-faced man.
This tattoo is done pretty well. And you can’t sue this guy for false advertising!
The Infamous Dress
You have to be careful with trendy tattoos. This ink was probably hilarious three years ago. Now it is just confusing. Maybe stick to something classic!
When You Go Cheap
This tattoo idea is really cute! Too bad the artist never learned to…. art? Do your research people. Don’t cheap out on a tattoo! And don’t let your tipsy friends practice on you either. Rookie mistake!
He’s Got Swag
I’m sure you could totally tell this guy had swag before the tattoo, but now you can REALLY tell. The fake necklace reinforces his “whiteboy swag.” Lock up your daughters!
This embarrassment could have easily been avoided had the artist and the patron realized that each hand has five fingers. Oops! Maybe next time.
Well now this is just handy! How else are you supposed to know how to wash your boyfriend? I, for one, would have thrown him in the dryer and shrank him! Thank goodness I had instructions.
No Ragrets! (Or Regerts!)
There are plenty of people who regret their tattoos; but is there anything more regrettable than a tattoo that says “regret”… but spelled wrong? I thought this one said “Rugrats” at a first glance. That might be better than RAGRETS.
There isn’t too much to point out here. Just another misspelling of “regrets,” which is the ultimate tattoo irony! Maybe it can be covered up with a nice black square – or maybe this person can move somewhere cold so a jacket (or tattoo invisibility cloak!) is a necessity.
Last One We Swear
Yay! This artist NAILED the spelling of “Regret” (which is apparently be harder than it seems!). Since this person obviously was unsure of the Chinese spelling of yet again, one of the most ironic tattoos to get – they played it safe with this brilliant idea. You can’t spell a word wrong in Chinese if you spell it in English and just throw (in Chinese) at the bottom. Well played!
Be Sure To Get The Sides Too
Honestly, I don’t even think this one is bad. Or maybe it’s so bad that it’s good! Can’t deny that it’s clever. And unless this man is four feet tall, nobody will be seeing it anyway. I approve!
Tattoos are a great way to express yourself with art. But before you run out to get a tattoo, scroll through these again and think twice!
