We’ve all felt regret at some time in our lives, and nothing stirs up regrets like a horrible tattoo. Yes, around 25% of people in the United States have a tattoo, and up to 50% of these previously proud human canvases may wish their amusing tattoo art erased.
Most of us take a long time deciding on a design, talking with a tattoo artist, and deciding on the best location for our body art before having a tattoo. The majority of people go drunk, get a guitar string, and some fountain pen ink, and voila, they have a very awful tattoo.
There will never be a shortage of tattoo fails, nor will there be a shortage of individuals wanting to share their hideous tattoos, as far as we can tell. Bored Panda has compiled a new collection of awful tattoos that either didn’t turn out as expected or make you wonder what goes on in people’s heads. Scroll down to view some cautionary stories of the worst tattoos ever, ranging from terrible painters who didn’t quite hit it to odd aesthetic choices.
