Those of you who watch the animated show “Adventure Time” probably understand the reference. For the sake of those of you who don’t, let us explain: in this cartoon series, which takes place in various locations around the universe, “The Lumps” is a disease that can get anyone who visits the Land of Oooo if they aren’t careful enough.
The way to get infected is similar to how one turns into a werewolf or a zombie — you need to get bitten by a space person who has previously been infected. The symptoms aptly include turning lumpy. We wonder if this tattoo means that this person is infected, or, in fact, immune.
In a War With Herself
This tattoo is the result of a genuine lack of foresight. Now this tattoo isn't just body art. This is a form of hieroglyphics that will tell future historians about the 21st century, more than any text ever could. Can you imagine what they would think of us and our era?
We think they'll imagine us as a strange group living through a strange time. Tattoos have a long and varied history in human culture, dating back thousands of years, but now, tattoos are more popular than ever and unfortunately, it's also a time when getting terrible tattoos is a harrowing reality.
Not the Brightest Star in the Sky
We're going to be asking this question a lot: what could have possessed this woman? While the star work is... okay... covering her face with them is a strange choice. Whether it was to give her kids something to do on long car rides, or just because she likes the night sky that much, it just didn't work.
While tattoos have become more mainstream in recent years, face tattoos remain a controversial and often terrible choice. Unlike other tattoos, face tattoos are nearly impossible to hide or cover. Placing permanent ink on your face tattoo is a significant commitment that can have some serious long-term consequences. Seriously, think before you ink!
Hipster Lickin' Good
For some, Kentucky Fried Chicken is more than just a fast-chicken predilection, it's a lifestyle and a measuring stick for your own successes in life. Because you don't know you've hit rock bottom till you have a Colonel Sanders tattoo. Especially on your leg where almost everyone can see.
We get that people want to express their individuality and people want to show off certain parts of their personality, but the design of this tattoo is so bad, it almost looks like he has tiny arms and legs. Plus the stencil makes it look like Colonel Sanders could be on fire.
Even celebrities aren't immune to terrible tattoos, it seems. Let's be honest, a lot of people like getting tattoos in another language because they think it looks exotic. But when you don't do your research, it might just be a jumbled mess of meaningless characters. It could be a recipe for disaster!
Lucky for David Beckham, this specific tattoo is fine in terms of proper use of language. The meaning of it, however, sounds a little condescending. Translated to "Life and death are destined by fate, wealth and status are destined by heaven," it seems to imply that Beckham's greatness was predetermined.
