Bad tattoos happen. Check your spelling. Check your spelling and grammar. Recheck all of that. Why? Because you’re getting a permanent tattoo on your body. You should take it somewhat seriously. Now, that we’ve gotten that out of the way, we also urge you to do your homework when it comes to your tattoo artist. Just because it’s “a deal” does not mean it’s worth it. Find an artist you trust and make sure to check out their portfolio.
We rounded up some really bad tattoos for you to look and laugh at. We must warn you, that you will probably kill some brain cells just by looking at several of these tattoos. That being said, we all make mistakes. Mistakes make us human. We know this is true because we saw professional tattoo removing services advertising with some of these tattoos! Now, let’s get down to business with these horrendously bad tattoos.
You Might Regret It But Check Out the Really Bad Tattoos Below:
The fact that this tattoo is at an angle really is just the icing on the cake. What do you think mom said?
Is this Dadaism? Is this one of the bad tattoos that’s actually a smart tattoo? We’re spiraling.
They Should’ve Given Up
In general, read and then re-read the text you plan on getting tattooed. That’s the first step. The second step involves asking a friend, asking an editor, asking a priest, and asking tattoo artists to check the grammar of the words you are getting tattooed. This is not okay and neither are we.
The adversity he will face after getting this tattoo will only make him stronger. Please think long and hard before getting a neck tattoo. Bad tattoos can happen anywhere but on the neck, you’re toast.
Not Enough Pen
This budding writer knew that the pen was his only ticket out. Wow.
‘Thy Known Self’
“To thy unknown self be false.” Is that the other part of this? Is that how this works? Help!
Living and Learning
It’s a cliche at this point, but people still do this. Learn from others’ mistakes not just your own to avoid bad tattoos. Names are generally a no-no.
What in the actual heck is going on with the bad tattoos all over this man? Mr. Ice? Does he think these are cool? Have mercy!
He Should Have Got a Life
He did it his way! Are there ever any adults in the room? How does this sort of thing keep happening?
A Stunningly Stupid Marvel
We don’t even like comics and we spotted the mistakes here. If you’re getting “MARVEL” tattooed across your shoulders you might want to know which characters belong in that universe. We could be wrong, but that seems like common sense.
Seize a Dictionary
Looks like someone was too caught up in the moment. Take your time and think things out. Moments are fleeting, bad tattoos last forever.
One Who Embodies His Faith
The personification of his own belief? This tattoo makes absolutely no sense. Time to make an appointment with a laser.
At least this bad tattoo is on her back. If she ever finds out, we know she’ll stay strong.
The Irony Is Painful
No one is defined by their mistakes… unless those mistakes are tattooed down an arm. At least they’re in the right headspace.
The Importance of Spacing
We’re all for messages of peace and choosing activism over violence. But… layout needs to be taken into consideration as much as spelling and grammar. What a shame.
The masks were already bad tattoos on their own but the spelling error is just a chef’s kiss. Get your act together or bad tattoos can plague you for a lifetime.
Clearly, no one was able to change his mind before getting this awful tattoo. It is riddled with mistakes. Take some advice the next time around?
Stay Clam, America
Please check on the tattoo artists in your life. Are they okay? How did this happen? Does she live in Florida? Bad tattoos often raise more questions than they answer.
Thankfully, He’s the Only One
Is that so? He should ask him for a little guidance before he goes to get any more bad tattoos. The power of prayer!
Regret Is Powerful
We’re all about a carefree and guilt-free lifestyle. Worrying? Who needs it? Live your life with no ragrets, people.
We often appreciate tattoos that resonate so deeply that they haunt us. However, this is one of the bad tattoos that will haunt you for the wrong reasons. Don’t stare too long or this demon will claim your soul.
We Want Off This Ride
Who needs actual hair when tattoo ink gets the job done just fine? Who are we kidding? This is one of the weirdest bad tattoos we’ve ever seen.
This person that it was a great idea to get a little body tattooed on his big body. Unsettling, no?
She Lives Abroad
Why would… Tattoos aren’t relationship status updates. Take a moment and think about how things are perceived before getting your bad tattoos.
The Lion Ding
Oh boy. This monstrosity takes up this man’s entire upper back. How could they do Simba like this? Bad tattoos are even worse when they’re enormous. Food for thought!
Not the Face!
Face tattoos should be considered very carefully if you enjoy being taken seriously. “The Illusionati” the forehead tattoo says in the above example. We wish it were more elusive.
What. Is. Happening?
Do people actively anger tattoo artists to get them to commit such atrocities? A yin-yang clown is not something we knew we needed to fear. Thanks for that, bad tattoos.
Making a Splash
We hate to yuck someone’s yum but this seems like a pretty big mistake. Do you think they got a refund?
A Great Question
If you have ever wondered what an existential crisis looks like in tattoo form, now you know. Carry on.
No More Sleep
We leave you with a couple of bad tattoos that will make you lose sleep. Nightmare fuel!
There you go! What did you think of these terribly bad tattoos? We hope they reminded you to take a breath and make good choices. You should always do your homework before getting a tattoo. Find an artist you can trust with a portfolio that establishes their experience. Otherwise, you could end up with some very bad tattoos.
