Tattoos have been around for a very long time, although you probably noticed just how popular these body modifications have become in the past decade or so. Some people go for more sentimental pieces, although others like to go with something more creative. Taste is subjective… or is it? There are certain designs out there that make us laugh out loud or cringe in secondhand embarrassment.
At any rate, you should always opt for the best artists you can find. When you get inked, you get what you paid for! If you want high-quality body art, you should go to a high-quality artist. Laser removal might be more accessible now, but no one wants to pay to get something supposedly beautiful removed. It is going to give you more pain on top of that. Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you the worst tattoo fails we have ever seen.
You Are What?
There are several reasons why bad tattoos happen. Sometimes, you have a little too much to drink during a holiday. Perhaps you refuse to lose when you played dare or truth. This guy is more than a little self-assured, and we wanted everyone to know that he is hot stuff.
However, we are sure he no longer felt that confident when he noticed the mistake on his back tattoo. The ‘old English’ font makes it look very cool but even that cannot distract us from the fact that it saws he is “Amsome” and not “awesome”! Oops. Next time, make sure you have a literate tattoo artist.
Does Not Fit
We like the idea of getting a tattoo with your best friend. There are many tattoo ideas you can go with, but this is not one of them. Do we need to explain to you why this is the case?
These are two Jigsaw puzzle pieces. However, their matching tattoos made it to the list because they do not even connect together. Girls, make sure the puzzles fit before you get them on your skin!
Facial Ice Cream
We are very sure that she has gotten the “You’ve got ice cream on your face” joke a ton of times before. What could she have been thinking when she got this tattooed on her face?
Maybe she thought this was how you look cool. We don’t think it works, but whatever floats your boat!
Marks On Her Face
Look at the face the baby is making! That is going to be the same face we make if this was what we saw as soon as w were born. What was she thinking when she got that tattoo anyway?!
If you ask us, it looks like someone thought it would be a good idea to pull her leg, at any rate… Yikes.
Dearest Darling Brenda
Well, we can definitely tell just how much he loves Brenda. This is the way he decided to show her how he feels as well.
We already think it is strange to get a name on your body, but this guy really took it to a whole new level. We just hope this never escapes hi attention.
Drake’s Biggest Fan
Drake is one of the biggest names in the world of hip-hop. He has won over many fans over the years, although we do not think we want to get this tattoo.
You can see just how passionate she is about her idols! Sometimes, that kind of passion is admirable. We do not think this is one of those cases.
All The Regrets
Will you look at how ironic this tattoo is? Wow. We have to say that the error makes it so deliciously ironic. Honestly, we cannot even tell if they did this on purpose or not.
The good thing here is that most people will miss the regret on first glance. You will only catch the spelling mistake when you take a good, long look at it!
Did you want to get a big, scary tiger? If that is the case, make sure you never get it from this artist. Unless you like the look of this tiger!
Well, we are ready to give the artist the benefit of the doubt. For all we know, this is exactly what the client had in mind when she sent those photos.
It Is Power
‘Knowledge is Power’, goes the famous quote by Sir Richard Bacon. This quote has been used an unbelievable number of times over the years.
However, we are not sure if nolege is truly the power. Next time, make sure to spell it out!
It’s My Life
Man, there should be a limit to the number of mistakes one can make while working on a tat.
Just in case you missed it, this is not how the song goes. We bet the tattoo artist said, “It’s my life” and did as they pleased instead. That’s a bad look, pal.
Amen To That
Oh, did you miss the bit in the new testament that goes, ‘Only God Can Fudge Me’? Well, it might be because it is not actually present there.
To be fair, this is not the worst misquote we have ever seen. It is actually pretty cool, as a matter of fact.
The Aliens Are Here
If he were a true Marshian, we are sure this fella would have a tattoo that is not this embarrassing.
It’s too bad that people have some really amazing design ideas that the artists cannot bring to life. Isn’t that the saddest thing ever?
Here are some tattoo fails that are nothing more than portraits gone horribly wrong. It is a great idea to get a photo of your baby on your skin, but maybe you should go to a different artist.
In the photo, the baby looks very adorable. Let us just say that this is not a flattering version of the child.
Hold It Closer
Where do we even start with this one? There are so many questions that this incredible photo has.
First of all, why is that human hugging a huge lizard? Why would she even that thing to come even closer? If someone could give us the answers to these questions, that would be great.
A True Reble
There are words that are so complicated it is easy to misspell them. However, we never thought that it would be possible to misspell something as simple as ‘rebel’.
A rebel is “a person who rises in opposition or armed resistance against an established government or ruler”. Perhaps he was only trying to make a point.
Like Harry Potter
What was he thinking when he got this prison tattoo right on his forehead? We cannot answer that.
We have to say that this might be the most ridiculous mug shot that we have ever seen thus far.
From The Movies
We do not know what kind of person walks into the tattoo shop and asks for a tattoo of the girl from the Exorcist, but it does happen.
Unfortunately, they had a true horror story. They wanted a great tattoo but got this instead. Oops.
There is something so heartwarming about tattoos with uplifting messages. Take this one for example.
A Proposal Tattoo
It was pretty gutsy of this guy to get a tattoo to propose. We would love to hear how the story ended.
Do you think Nina ended up seeing this and running a mile? This is pretty crazy on its own, but the fact that ‘marry’ was misspelled makes it even worse.
When he was still with Megan, his girlfriend was excited to see the way he put her name on his skin. However, they eventually called it quits.
Laser removal can be very pricey. The moment he got together with Hollie, he had to get a little creative.
Makes No Sense
Here is an example of yet another tattoo meant to lift our spirits. Of course, it did not go well either…
Clearly, this person was trying to say ‘Never give up’ or something to that effect. Unfortunately, he ended up with a double negative tattoo instead. Oops.
There are lots of McDonald’s fans out there, and we are sure you have eaten there in the past. This guy was a bigger fan than most, however.
We have to admit that this is one cool-looking tattoo. Is it odd? Definitely. Does it look neat? For sure.
This guy definitely has quite the sense of humor! We love the fact that he styled his hair to make the effect even stronger. However, we would it if he was sitting right in front of us.
At the very least, the tattooist finally got a one-of-a-kind project that they would never ever forget.
If you want to talk about glamorous celebrities, good luck finding someone who bits to bill better than Marilyn Munroe. We are sure you are familiar with this photo of hers!
This is a great image, and we are not confused about why people want to get it tattooed. The one on the right side, however…
A Different Lion
It seems like some people forget that the tattoos are supposed to be on their bodies for the rest of their lives. True, there are laser removal options. Just keep in mind that those things are expensive, of course.
This tattoo is not exactly up to our standards. We appreciate the unique look it has to it, at any rate.
If you ever watched Pokemon, you must be familiar with the saying “Gotta catch em all”. With that look, we are sure that Pikachu could kill everyone else.
We are saying that because this pokemon looks extremely angry. We would personally prefer a smiley Pikachu than this one. To be fair, this is a lot better than some of the other tattoo fails on this list.
For some reason, people love to get tattoos in a different language. When you do this, it is very important to do your research. You do not want to be the guy with the inappropriate tat, right?
It would be best to avoid tattoos in languages you don’t understand for that matter. Apparently, his tattoo spells out turkey sandwich. Yikes.
Some of us enjoy watching shows and documentaries about space. This girl is one of those people. We have to admit that we also enjoy hearing and seeing things about the outer space.
She finally decided to get a tattoo to showcase how serious she was. However, let us just say it ended up looking very different from what she had in mind. Oops.
It seems like people enjoy getting bad tattoos of Marilyn Munroe for some reason. In all fairness, this probably means a lot of people get tattoos of her. The more people have them, the higher the chances that there is a bad one out there.
We like the old English style they used here, and this is not even half bad. However, we do not think we can deny that it looks nothing like the first photo. As a matter of fact, the woman in the second photo looks a little deranged.
Shell Out Money For A Tat
Do you remember when we told you to opt for a more expensive tattoo artist? This is the reason why you should start doing that, folks. The Joker in The Dark Knight was one of the most superhero villains we have ever seen.
We can definitely see why this fella wanted to get Heath Ledger’s face tattooed. Sadly, the person in the first photo wanted to get it done as cheaply as possible. The person in the second one, meanwhile, was ready to shell out some serious bucks if it meant getting high-quality ink. The difference is pretty astounding, isn’t it?
