19 Celebrity Tattoo Fails

Xavier in Funny

This is an age-old question we all have for celebrities.

They are obviously cashing in the big bucks and yet, keep getting tattoos that look like something from a dollar store. It doesn't make sense at all. Unless these celebrities actually prefer legit shitty tattoos, why waste skin? Dear celebrities, feel free to contact us if you need some kick-ass tattoo ideas. We'll direct you to the right artists, too so you won't have to be in lists like these.

Here's a short list of some ridiculous celebrity tattoo fails.

Drew Barrymore was once known as Hollywood's wild child back in the 90's. Here are some souvenirs from that point of her life. Charlie's Angels forever?

Hate to say that as much as we love Gaga, we're not ‘putting our paws up in the air’ for this one.

Even a lady like Jessica Alba can make the mistake of thinking tramp stamp tattoos are a good idea.

Mark Whalberg has since then said goodbye to his whack Marky Mark days and let Bob Marley rest in piece, thankfully.

A tattoo of Ryan Gosling? We feel you, Ryan. But at least you could have found an artist who won't confuse Ryan Gosling with Chuck Norris.

Respect to Winnie the Pooh, Kate Gosselin!

Should have gone to Sean from Texas for that.

And finally, a photo of the recently-single Zayn Malik back when he wasn't being a douchebag to his ex-fiancée Perrie Edwards.

My thoughts exactly.
