Terrible Tattoos – They Can Be There For Life

Some people have simply awful tattoos. This should not be seen as a call to condemn the entire idea of getting a tattoo, but it should be a quiet reminder to anyone thinking of getting ink done that they need to be careful before letting the needle anywhere near their skin. It may sound like a great idea at 9.30pm one night, and look like a horrible mess twelve hours later. There is a reason why most tattoo parlors will refuse to tattoo anyone who even appears intoxicated.

We have surely all seen them. Tattoos which depict a cartoon character in an obscene pose. Tattoos which take a fairly weak visual joke and stretch it so far that it breaks. Tattoos which have two arrows – one pointing up with “The Man” written underneath it, and the other pointing down towards their crotch with “The Legend” written above. If you are going to get a tattoo, make sure it is conceptualised when you are stone cold sober. A drunken tattoo will not cause people to think you’re a hilarious, crazy guy, but it might make them think you are a loser.

It is also worth checking out the credentials of the parlor where you go before you get the tattoo. If you have a friend who has a great-looking tattoo, ask where he went and go there. Do not just go to any tattoo parlor, because some really are not very good, and they will leave you with a tattoo that looks nothing like you were expecting.
