Really Not Super Great Tattoos

It's everyone's personal decision whether or not they should get an almost unrecognizable mural of Goku on themselves. It's a decision many of us wouldn't make, or at least we'd spend some extra time looking for an artist who could do a really good job of it. But to each his own, and as a result there's a whole lot of strange and troubling tattoos out there. As a society we make a lot of tattoo choices that have people asking questions.

Skillful Creations of Questionable Taste

Craftsmanship and taste are two different things, and sometimes one gets the better of the other. Sure, you can make high quality shoes out of teeth, but you should also be asking yourself if anyone wants to look at them. It's very possible to make a thing that's impressive but also of highly questionable taste.

Stupid Mistakes Tattoo Artists Witnessed

Tattoos can be tricky business. One typo or slip of the hand can have someone wearing "I love moom" on their bicep for the rest of their life. Tattoo artists take multiple precautions to idiot-proof the process, but we still end up with tattoo choices that have people asking questions. Sometimes the customers themselves are uncontrollable, like in the case of this male Karen who didn't believe a tattoo shop owner.

Entitled Teen Wants To Steal Tattoo Artist's Design, Doesn't Understand Their Anger

Man, it's got to be profoundly frustrating to be a tattoo artist in a day and age rife with entitled individuals like the one we have here. For whatever puzzling reason the kid in question thinks that it's totally chill to go and steal a tattoo artist's design, ask them for an edit, and then they have the audacity to question the artist's frustrated response. At that point it seems like the entitlement has clouded the individual's head to such an extent, we're not even sure that the typical reality check would get anything done.

Bride Wants To Airbrush Over Bridesmaid's Tattoos

Gotta love how this bride says she doesn't want to be "that bride" and then proceeds to be exactly that bride. Weddings seem to have that uncanny knack for bringing out people's inner toxic perfectionist. Sometimes people like this bride can get so caught up in trying to make sure everything fits their vision for the perfect day, that they end up being way more insensitive than they'd ever normally be. We've got to hope that's the case for this bride. Check out some more wedding drama with this bridezilla Karen who ended up looking like a pauper at her own wedding.

Male Karen Doesn't Believe Tattoo Shop Owner, Gets Reckoning

The guy basically forced himself into the building and demanded a tattoo, even when he was told it couldn't be done. And to top it all off, this male Karen honestly didn't believe that the owner of a tattoo place might have a tattoo on his head. For a Karen at odds with another business owner, here's a lying Karen getting decimated by an owner's response. For some tattoo tales, here are some stories of tattoo choices that had people asking questions.

Tattoo Choices That Had People Asking Questions

When a customer comes in slurring and demanding a chest tattoo of Mario and Luigi using the same toilet, any semi-responsible tattoo artist is going to ask them if they're sure about it. Some people here had an artist take pity on them and just said no, while others insisted. Here are some stories of dumb tattoo translations and some straight up strange and troubling tattoos.

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.

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.

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.
