There are many reasons for people to get tattoos today, ranging from decorative to spiritual to cosmetic. They have been used to mark rites of passage, social standing and as identification. More and more these days we are school age kids in Europe getting heavily tattooed on their arms, legs and other visible locations meaning that it is more and more important that there are no mistakes made when having the indelible ink inserted into the dermis level of their skin. Unfortunately we are seeing more and more tattoo mistakes or just plain bad tattoos. Here are a few examples of epic fails in the area of tattooing… Doh!
These bad tattoos show that 1) Always have spelling checked on tattoos with writing; 2) In loving memory of your dead wife may seem a good idea, but when she looks like Iron Maiden’s mascot Eddie it is not so sweet and 3) Tattoos can be funny, but when you sober up you have to live with that cat!
Let me know if you know of any funny tattoos, misspelled tattoos or bad tattoos.
Dan the man.
