Strange, Awkward, And Puzzling Tattoos

Some of these are actually kind of cool, while others just never should've happened in the first place. That being said, it'd be a bold move to get any of these.

Regrettable Tattoos That Must Be Hard to Have

Do what you want with body art, but we can't say that these were all intentional. With the wrong artist, wrong idea, or wrong spelling, a regrettable tattoo can become as memorable as it is permanent. If you have a great idea, might as well run it by someone first and make sure the spelling is at least right.

Regrettable Tattoos as Memorable as they are Permanent

Like buying a car or anything else you're expecting to be stuck with for a while, tattoos are one of those things that it helps to think a little harder about, and go to the right artist. Oh, and double check any tattoos you get in languages you don't understand, because they end up as tattoo translation fails. On the other side, here are some cool tattoos that turned scars into art.

Tattoo Artists Share Requests They Refused

Someone on AskReddit asked for tattoo artists to describe their experiences with rejecting people's tattoo requests. Sometimes the tattoo artist ends up being a kind of gatekeeper, from letting the stupid spontaneous decisions from getting through.

Tattoo Parlor Has Epic Response for Entitled Customer

Sometimes people feel like being a paying customer makes them impervious to criticism, but when it comes to responding to entitled customers who don't reveal the full story, the businesses themselves tend to have some pretty damning responses. Here's one where a business owner leveled with a guy who complained over a dollar taco. This one has an interesting twist regarding that pesky "voice was too high" remark.

A bad customer leaves a one star review for a tattoo parlor so the business has a funny response | Absolutely horrible. Came here one day with two friends who wanted an ear piercing and nipple piercing.

Unbelievably Dumb Tattoo Translation Fails

Someone on AskReddit asked for people that speak Japanese and/or Chinese to share the very worst (or best...) of the tattoo translation fails that they've seen. These might be some of our favorite kinds of fails. Tattoo artists can be brutal when it comes to surprising people with tattoos that definitely don't translate to what people think they do.

These people are part of the reason why some parents tell their kids to never get tattoos. We can't imagine that there was a ton of thought that went into some of these. Hell, maybe we're wrong though. Maybe these are the kinds of tattoos that these individuals dreamed of getting all along.

Dumb Mistranslated Tattoos and Shirts that People Witnessed

In this wide world, we see a lot of hilarious translations and translation fails. Languages are complex and hard to understand completely. These frustratingly interesting observations on language and silly literal translations are a good example of that. This can come to a head when overzealous tourists try to get a tattoo in not only a language they don't understand, but in characters that are also completely foreign to them. Case in point, you don't want to misstep and end up as the "goldfish man"
