People have no problem walking into a tattoo parlor and blindly picking a design that looks cool. But, for some reason, coming up with your own tattoo design seems like such an intimidating endeavor, and sadly, that kind of intimidation leads to terrible decisions. Like getting this evolutionary drawing on this arm.
Darwin may approve, but that might be all. At first glance, you don’t really see the problem in this outline of “Evolution of Man”, and then you realize that a silhouette may not have been the best choice for this design. Why? Because the hand of the man on the right looks less like a hand and more like a… let’s cal lit a piece of bodily equipment.
Let's face it, relationships can be unpredictable, and things might not always work out. Getting your girlfriend's name tattooed on your arm could be a risky move. If you break up, you're left with a permanent reminder of an ex that might not be easy to explain to future partners.
When things inevitably don't end well with your girlfriend, you might need to get a cover-up tattoo. Instead of completely getting rid of the name Megan, this guy made it very obvious and simply inserted "Oops, I meant Hollie". You'd think he would have learned by now not to get your girlfriend's name tattooed...
What's the Tradition, Exactly?
This article has it all. From tattoos that do not age well, to easy-to-spot typos in quotes, to unfortunate choices people made when they were drunk. While there are many questionable tattoos out there, this “Family Tradition” tattoo placed on this guy's upper lip takes the cake.
Maybe all of his male family members have a big, bushy mustache, and he just can't manage more than a teen scruff. Sometimes it’s okay to uphold your family's tradition and heritage, but if it means tattooing this on your face, then maybe you should consider breaking tradition. Or pick a different family.
Nine Attempts and Still Not Good
We can't hide the fact that we feel at least a little bit of enjoyment in the misfortune of other people. Schadenfreude has, after all, been a bona fide phenomenon since people have been embarrassing themselves (so, forever). But it's always a little bit better when people brought the hilarious misfortune upon themselves.
Like this person, the tattoo artist had nine attempts at drawing a circle and somehow failed every single time. You'd think that after one or two tries, they'd give up but no, that was not the case. This was probably meant to resemble the crescent moon as it waxes and wanes but this artwork doesn't even come close.
Like all the fine folks who — inexplicably — thought it would be a good idea to permanently brand themselves in spectacularly horrific fashion, this guy thought their idea for a math equation was pretty cool. Sadly, it was not cool and it took up so much real estate on their arm!
We assume most of you know the meaning behind the bottom number, but the top number's meaning could be lost on some. For them, we will clarify that this is a number identified with those who like to dabble with Mary Jane. Anyone with those numbers on their dating app profile will be immediately swiped left. Too bad it can't be done in real life too.
