Anyone who has ever attended school knows what it’s like to doodle as your concentration slowly slips away and your teacher’s words blur into one another. Sometimes we doodle on the edges of our notebooks, sometimes we let our inner vandal doodle on the table, and sometimes we doodle on ourselves. All pretty common and normal.
What’s not common or normal, is getting that middle-school-level artistry permanently tattooed on your body. Nothing good ever comes out of middle school. The only good thing about this time of your life is that it inevitably ends so you can pretend it never happened. This guy, sadly, doesn’t have that luxury.
Who Is That?
Brace yourselves for the "What Were They Thinking?" tattoo. It's like a Picasso but more like Picasso's ten-year-old nephew who decided to draw. The proportions are all off, the colors look like a traffic jam, and the quality is... let's just say questionable at best. Congrats, this tattoo is absolutely awful!
Now, we must ask the million-dollar question: what possessed someone to get this tattoo? Was it a result of a wild night out fueled by questionable decisions and even more questionable substances? Or was it a case of misguided artistic enthusiasm? We may never know, but we can't help but shake our heads in wonder.
What on earth happened to this tiger?! The more we look at it the more we think it could be a tiger combined with a Proboscis Monkey with a nose like that. It almost looks like the animal version of Pinocchio. Let this serve as a gentle reminder that one person's idea for a tattoo, could be another's nightmare.
As the saying goes, beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. This saying holds true for all sorts of oddities, especially tattoos. Who needs a perfect, cookie-cutter world when you can have a treasure trove of tattoo fails instead? Just don't get carried away and intentionally get a bad tattoo.
Mom Knows Best
Some people are always on the lookout for a good idea when it comes to their next tattoo. They even ask their moms for advice, hoping to get some inspiration. That's exactly what this guy did. Sadly, he didn't quite think it through and thought he'd be incredibly original.
So he ended up choosing his mom's text message and now he has a terrible tattoo that's supposed to be a joke. Joke tattoos can be a way of telling a story or commemorating a funny memory, but that doesn't mean it will be as funny as you think it is!
This is definitely cringe-worthy, but it also looks like it is planned, in a wonderful bit of tattoo irony. This is a good lesson for life, not just when getting a tattoo. We get that they might have thought this would've been funny but all it really says is that you don't care about what you put on your body.
The tattoo designer or artist could plainly see what space is required, so odds are this lady got big, Gothic letters on her eight fingers as a joke that will last forever. We bet it won't be funny in ten years when she has to meet her fiance's parents or when applying for that lucrative job.
