Regrettably, there’s nothing quite as unfortunate as looking down at a tattoo and realizing it isn’t everything you want. Perhaps, at one point, you even liked it, but over time, the quality really started to show, or the concept just didn’t work anymore. Nevertheless, that’s exactly the type of challenge that these tattoo artists took on. Remarkably, their works of art transformed these awful tattoos into beautiful ones.
The popularity of tattoos has skyrocketed in recent years, and with that has come a dramatic rise in the race to create the most unique body art. While others are happy with a small cute tattoo or a full back with intricated lines, some people take it up a notch and choose for themselves the most horrible designs.
Today’s list includes some of the lousiest artwork including shaky lines, lousy resilience, and bad shadows. After witnessing these atrocities, we hope you never decide to design a tattoo yourself, and always check the artist’s credentials before your appointment.
A few years ago, lips tattoos became very popular. It’s probably because you can hide it, and it only shows up when you pull your bottom lip down. It is an incomplete form of rebellion. Well, at least that’s the idea. This artist got it very wrong. Instead of being obscured, the tattoo is only on the lower lip and is rather very conspicuous. To make it worse, the tattoo itself is silly—this poor girl.
As most tattoos are permanent, many people will have to think it through before getting one. Moreover, the meaning behind each tattoo is also essential since it could represent a personal memory for us. As a result, you always want to find a reliable tattoo artist. However, these people below might not be as lucky in their search for the right guy. Here are some of the most epic tattoo fails that will give you a good laugh!
The Infamous Tattoo List
Using a quote or famous phrase as your tattoo is a common thing. Nonetheless, you must think long and hard before getting it. First, make sure you can pick the correct phrase. Besides, you need to consider the font and size of the tattoo. Finally, its location is also a crucial point.
Most tattoo artists would offer to do some specific fonts if you didn’t know. When choosing the “Finally Famous” phrase, this guy must not think he would become infamous instead.
A Proper Translator Is A Must
Non-English tattoo is also a familiar type that many people choose to have. For Naz Mila, she picked a phrase that means “Only God can judge my mistakes and truths.” However, the social media influence made the mistake of letting her tattoo artist do the translation.
Things took a terrible turn when he gave her a tattoo that read, “I can judge a single god with my wrongs and wrongs.”
A Haunted Tattoo
Finding good tattoo artists couldn’t be that hard. When you want to have a portrait tattooed, you must look for a talented one. When this guy wanted to have a tattoo of his girlfriend, she should have said no.
His final tattoo came out a bit too ‘haunted’ for our liking, don’t you think so?
How do you spot a vegan? Simple, they will announce that whenever you have a conversation. Nevertheless, this woman could be too lazy to mention it several times.
As a result, she will let her tattoo do the talking. Having a face tattoo is a big sacrifice, so we have to applaud her commitment.
Tazte The Rainbow
We could have made a spelling mistake once in a while, but it’s a big NO to most tattoo artists. If you’re a big fan of Skittles, you will see what went wrong in this case.
Perhaps he’s not a big fan of the candy himself. On the other hand, it won’t be much visible in the long run.
Guess The Old Hollywood Star
It’s not uncommon to have a tattoo related to their favorite idol. However, it might be a bit tricky to identify this famous star. Can you take a guess?
If your answer is Marilyn Monroe, you must have a great imagination. Despite having a great original pic, the tattoo left a bit to be desired. The ling work and shading are just bad overall.
Japanese Style Barbecue Grill
You must have heard about Ariana Grande’s epic tattoo fail once before. When her hit song ‘7 Rings’ came out, she wanted a tattoo to commemorate the success. The famous pop star ditched English for a Japanese character tattoo this time.
Something must have gone wrong during the translation, as she ended up with a tattoo that meant a type of Japanese-style barbecue grill.
