Team Drake

A woman has shaved her eyebrows and had DRAKE tattooed on her forehead

Loyalty to one’s team, band or rapper is a good thing, you must love the devotion. I sure hope this came with a lifetime pass to front row seats and backstage after parties.

Who is Brenda?

A man has hundreds of big and little ‘Brenda’ words on his back in different fonts

Okay, we have so many questions for this guy. For starters, who the heck is Brenda? Is she your girlfriend? Your wife? Your daughter? Your mom? Your enemy? Secondly, why the heck have you got her name tattooed ALL OVER your back? (Even the big ‘BRENDA’ is made up of little Brendas). Thirdly, what’s with all the different fonts? Could you not decide? Was Times New Roman not enough for you? Man, we wish we could meet this guy. And Brenda.

Alien child

A man has a tattoo of a child on his forearm, but the child has a sock for a tongue

Many people choose to have tattoos of a childhood memory, or of their child – and that’s totally okay. In fact, it can be cute if it’s done properly. Unfortunately, this is one of the most epic tattoo fails we’ve ever seen. Not only does this child have a sock for a mouth (we hope there’s relevance for this, otherwise it is just weird), but it also doesn’t look like a child. It looks more like an alien.

No Regerts

A man has had a tattoo that is misspelled to say ‘No Regerts’ instead of ‘No Regrets’

He may regert the spelling mistake, but you must love the fonts, spacing and quality workmanship. Hey, three out of four ain’t bad. That’s a passing grade. A lot of us have gotten through school with an F in English.

Let me Explain

A woman has had a picture of half an onion tattooed on her armpit

I’ve tried every deodorant on the market, and nothing works. I may as well just explain why I stink all the time.

Nothing lasts forever

A man has had a quote tattooed on his forearm which reads, ‘Nothing last’s forever’

We disagree. Tattoos last forever, as does poor English, misspelled words and stupidity.

Human instructions

A man has a clothes washing label tattooed onto the back of his neck

Sometimes, we just don’t really know where we stand without the human race. Luckily, this guy has got the right idea and is helping those of us who are confused. Now we know that we need to hand wash him with warm water, we know that we can’t machine dry him, and we know not to iron him. I mean, where would we be without that tattoo?

Your Name Here…

Your name tattoo

Getting a woman’s name tattooed onto your body is a huge commitment. It’s a way to say that you’re serious, that you want to be together forever, and you’re ready to make a statement to whoever sees you that this is the lady for you. But what if you’re afraid of commitment, and don’t think you’ll ever settle down with just one person? This guy had a great solution, simply putting the generic “your name here” to cover everyone that might come up. The only thing missing is a line underneath to fill in the Babe du jour with a Sharpie.

In Loving Memory of…

rip grandad

A tattoo can be a beautiful way to remember someone who was important to you, and always keep them close in mind and spirit. This guy wanted to remember his grandfather, who he called granddad. He even remembered the years of this man’s life, so he could include that when he got the ink done. Luckily, Grandad will never see it, so we have that going for us.

Zip me up?

You can only take the homeopathic thing so far. We get that over the counter sleep aids, Ambien and all that stuff can be addictive, but there are other ways to close your eyes at night. This isn’t one of them.


Who thought of this? “Hey, I have a great idea. Let’s tat up so that every 10-year high school reunion we can break out our tats”!


Nothing says classy like calling yourself classy. Especially if it is tattooed on your lower back in red and black ink with a diamond next to it. These tattoos are generally referred to as a “tramp stamp” which of course we know is anything but classy. But at least this girl is letting us know that in her case we shouldn’t be alarmed because it is indeed a “classy” tattoo.


Usually when we get diarrhea, we don’t tell the entire world about it, it’s pretty much the opposite we usually try to keep it a secret. But this woman clearly did not care about any social norms. She got a tattoo that clearly shows in huge letters that she has diarrhea and that she does not care. At least we can admire her nonchalant attitude. We should probably tell her that it is curable and not a lifelong ailment.

Pick up line?

Boys love to compare what pick-up lines they think work the best. And in turn girls love to get together to laugh at the boy’s pick-up lines. We have all heard a wide variety of pick-up lines, some funnier and more efficient than others. We’re not sure if the intention of this tattoo was to pick up girls but we can guarantee him that it probably won’t work.

Judging all around

A lot to say about this tattoo. Seriously who in their right mind would get this tattooed on their back. Poor guy, he thinks only God is judging him but we are sure that a lot of people out there are judging him if he ever takes his shirt off and people catch a glimpse of this.

Know the difference

“Your” vs “You’re” is a mistake more common than you might think. But if “your” permanently tatting “you’re” body, it’s a good idea to check “you’re” grammar before the final ink.

Always loving it

There are two types of people in the world, those who love McDonalds and those who hate it. It goes without being said what type of person this man is. He even took it to the next level tattooing “Always loving it”. We’re not sure if he has a burger receipt tatted on his forearm.

Patients is a Virtue

patients tattoo

Thinking about all the important great character traits which this woman wanted to get permanently tattooed to her skin, she thought that this was the one which summed her up the best. Unfortunately, while patients is a word, it wasn’t quite the word she was looking for. Patients = under the care of a doctor, as opposed to Patience, the virtue. Let’s hope she has enough patients to sit through all those laser treatments and get it removed.

Missing puzzle piece

A couple have puzzle pieces tattooed on their wrists, but the pieces are both corner pieces

Getting a tattoo with a significant other is one of the most romantic things you could do. Yep, permanently inking your skin with something sentimental is one of the best ways to show your love for each other. However, it’s fair to say that some people need to put more thought into their supposedly sentimental tats, as these two corner pieces would never be able to fit together on a puzzle board. Sorry, lovebirds, your relationship is doomed.

Eensy Weensy Gosling

A tattoo on someone’s arm which is Ryan Gosling’s face on a spider body

We have a feeling this guy was so sick of his girlfriend fawning over heartthrob Ryan Gosling, that he decided to curb her infatuation once and for all. In fact, it’s enough to put us all off the ‘La La Land’ star. Why would you mix the most beautiful man in the world with the most horrific of creepy crawlies on the planet? This makes us so very, very sad. Make it go away now, please!

Thenks Mather

A tattoo on a young man’s arm which says “Thenks mather for my life.”

We’re pretty sure that Mom is still grateful and loves him…that’s what Mom’s do.

Still Better than the Alternative

A tattoo on someone which says “Regret” with “(in Chinese)” underneath

The other choice was “Regert” (in Japanese)

Lost in Translation

A tattoo on a woman’s back in another language, which translates to “chicken noodle soup.”

The great thing about tats is another language is that the odds of you meeting someone who can read it is slim, so why just get a tat of your favorite soup? Seems reasonable.


A tattoo on someone’s back which says “Clearly I have made some bad decisions.”

Let’s think about this. A bad decision is generally a spur of the moment decision where there is little time to evaluate your options. Clearly, the pre-tat consultation with the artist, reviewing dozens of fonts and colors, spacing, size, and all the other decisions that go into a tat make this a “good decision” … at least in HIS mind.

In Memoriam

A memorial tattoo of gravestones which is badly down and covers the whole person’s back

If this guy was clever, he would have had the headstones tattooed upside down…as Grandpa is most certainly turning over in his grave.

Never don’t give up

A man has had a tattoo on his bicep that says, ‘Never don’t give up’

The script on this tattoo is nice and the quality of work is exceptional. However, the message is off. We might have gone with “Up don’t Never give” or “Give up don’t Never” or “Up Never give don’t”. All would probably convey the same message as here.

Jon Bovi

A music fan has been incorrectly tattooed with, ‘“It’s is my life” - Jon Bovi’

It’s become a trend for music fans to have lyrics permanently etched onto their skins, and this is the perfect way to show your allegiance to a band or artist, and your connection to their lyrics. Unfortunately, we can tell this tattoo artist wasn’t the greatest fan of Jon Bon Jovi. We suspect this was a self tattoo job…it sure looks like it.

I’m not lovin’ it

A man was pressured by his friends to get a McDonald's receipt tattooed on his arm

Don’t get us wrong, we love McDonald’s as much as the next person. This is a unique tattoo but what is interesting is, did he really pay $25.00 for a cheeseburger? Maybe he was just planning the future so the tat would be relevant in the year 2050.

Oh, the irony

A woman has had the letters ‘PLAN AHEA’ on each finger but ran out of space for the ‘D’

Although these tattoo fails are pretty darn embarrassing for the people who have them on their body, we can at least get a good laugh at them – especially when they’re full of irony. We’re not sure whether this was a genuine mistake or ironic joke, but we have a feeling this person might regret their tattoo choice later in life. Yup, they obviously didn’t plan ahead, so they really shouldn’t take their own advice again. Like, ever.

Deeper Message

A millennial has had an open Avocado tattooed on themselves, complete with stone

Okay, we get the love of avocados here. It’s the pit that intrigues us. Many people claim to see the image of Jesus on toast or pancakes but a space alien on an avocado pit is a first.

No Worries

A man had ‘Megan’ tattooed on his arm before it was crossed out with ‘oops! I meant Hollie’

Megan, Hollie…Hollie, Megan who cares. Women are expensive enough. Somewhere down the road the right gal will come along, and we’ll get this cleaned up.

Getting older

A man has had a man mowing the lawn tattooed inside the bald patch on his head

Why spend good money on plugs, wigs or hats? A good sense of humor as to balding is healthy and cheap.

Forever young

A tattoo which says “For ever young” and shows characters from ‘The Fox and the Hound’ badly drawn

Aww, who remembers ‘The Fox and The Hound’? It was one of the most beautiful Disney stories about friendship against the odds, even if it did have that horrible scene in it (you know the one). This person clearly wanted to celebrate their love of the Disney flick, but didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a tattoo artist to do the job. Unless it’s been directly copied from their toddler’s drawing, there is no excuse for such awful work.

THAT dress

A tattoo of the viral dress that is blue and black but says “White and gold?” around it

The famous dress that garnered 10 million retweets back in 2015 was a bizarre happening. The disagreements were about the color of the dress. Fair enough, but why would some dude tat it on his leg?

Walkens accepted

A really bad tattoo of Christopher Walken with a picture of his actual face next to it to show the difference

Christopher Walken is an acting legend, no doubt about that. We could totally understand why someone would want to get a tattoo of his face on themselves (kind of). I’d be inclined to seek out the high-end artists though.

Serious swag

A man with a tattoo on his chest that says “Whiteboy Swag” in graffiti style font

Wow. Need we say any more? We cannot, for the life of us, work out why someone would walk into a tattoo parlor and ask for this to be permanently inked onto their skin. We also don’t know any reputable tattoo artist that would agree to this. The words, the way it looks, that fake necklace… It’s all the total opposite of swag if you ask us. We hope this guy has enough money for laser removal when he grows up.

Creepy kid

A picture of a cute girl on the left and then a badly drawn tattoo on the right, which makes her look creepy

Ah man, this gives us the total creeps. If there is one thing that is guaranteed to make us run for the hills, it’s creepy kids. While the little girl in the photo may look as cute as a button, the tattoo certainly doesn’t do her any justice! In fact, it looks like something out of a horror movie! This is just a prime example of why you find the best portrait tattoo artist before you get a loved one inked on your skin forever.

Tiger Lily

A tattoo of a tiger within a flower that is extremely badly drawn like it was done by a child

We know they have lily patterns, and tiger patterns at the shop. Can it really be that tough to combine the two?

iPhone sucks

A tattoo of a Blackberry phone with the writing “iPhone sucks” underneath

“iPhone Sucks” …pretty much says it all. Nothing else needed.

A misteak?

A tattoo of a slab of meat which says “RIP June Cleaver” on it

We are reasonably certain that this is NOT an homage to June Cleaver, Beaver Cleaver’s mom in the 1960’s show “Leave it to Beaver”. Ward would never had allowed it.

Chicken wings

A woman with two tattoos of chicken wings on her back

The only thing that would have elevated this tat to the stratosphere would have been a mug of our favorite frosty cold one inked right in the middle.

Only Karl

karl pilkington tattoo

The tattoo in this photo is of legendary producer, comedian and tv personality Karl Pilkington, known for telling it how it is, and not mincing his words. When one of his fans gets a tattoo of his famously round head on their body, he answers flatly that in his day, people simply got posters of the celebs they liked. It’s true that this is a permanent way to say that you like someone, and kind of extreme.

Beloved pooch

A picture showing a really badly drawn tattoo of a dog on someone’s body

Again, most tattoo shops had a million pet and dog patterns and the odds are that you can find one remarkably close to what your dog looks like. Going the freestyle route can be upsetting to your dog.

Babby girl

A woman with a tattoo on her neck which says “Babby girl”

This tattoo looks like someone has drawn it on in pen – and we’re kind of hoping that is the case, when you see what it says. We have a feeling this woman’s significant other thought they would treat her to a homemade tattoo, only they forgot how to spell the word ‘baby.’ Is the word baby really that hard to spell? Or maybe her name is Barbara and her nickname is Babby Girl? We’re totally clutching at straws here.

Audi Proud

Someone with very dirty hands and long nails with an Audi tattoo on all of their knuckles

Based on this person’s standards of personal hygiene, they likely are quite proud and consider this tattoo a masterpiece.


A man with a tattoo of the logo for the energy drink brand Monster on his forehead

We only hope this leads to a great advertising gig for this dude in television commercials… or at least a lifetime supply of his favorite drink.

No ragrets

A small tattoo which says “No ragrets” instead of “No regrets”

We aren’t too sure what a ragret is…but I’m sure he has no “regerts” about his tat.

Nobodies perfect

A tattoo on a woman’s chest which says “Nobodies perfect” with a heart in the middle

She was probably tired of guys describing her as a “10” … so she decided to remove all doubt.

Super bowel

A tattoo on someone’s arm which says “Super Bowel” instead of “Super Bowl”

We’re not understanding why this guy didn’t have a Patriots logo tatted here since they won Super Bowl XXXVIII. It’s a cool logo and you don’t have to concern yourself with embarrassing misspellings. We have no clue what the reference to Hong Kong is since the game was played in Houston.

Nice specs

A man with a tattoo on his face which make it look like he is wearing Ray Ban glasses

We understand that not everyone needs glasses to see…but everyone likes to look distinguished and intelligent. Mission accomplished!


A man with a whole face tattoo which are black squares, creating a chessboard effect

Camo fatigues work awesome for the military to conceal and hide troops. Why would it not work for civilians evading the latest facial recognition software at airports and other places? We really think he is onto something here.

Winter is coming

A man with a tattoo on his forehead which says, “Winter is Coming”

We’re back with the facial tattoos again (please, stop!). This guy is clearly a massive fan of the HBO series, Game of Thrones. We totally get that; we dig Jon Snow, Daenerys and the whole crew. However, there is no way in Westeros we would get a tattoo on our face to show how much we love the show. What is he going to do when Game of Thrones is finished and forgotten about? Perhaps he could become a weatherman during the winter months?
