25 Tattoo Fails That Will Make You Love Your Artist

Xavier in Funny

As much as we love tattoos, we definitely hate seeing splotches on wasted skin some people have the nerve to call a tattoo.

Some of us want some hyperrealistic pieces by Niki Norberg, kawaii trads by Alex Strangler, traditional Japanese by Horiyoshi III and all that but take your time to appreciate the ink you already have and give some credit to your artist for a decent linework and a splendid job on the colouring. Be thankful you didn't end up like the casualties we'll be showing you here.

It's not you guys. I'm kidding. It's you. Please be kind to yourself and invest in a good tattoo from a reputable tattoo artist.

Stop making your loved ones look like burn victims. It's offensive to the real victims. You end up a victim at the end of the session too.
