When I was 18, I really wanted a tattoo but didn’t know what to get. I decide on the Led Zeppelin tribal symbols, since I was big into them at the time, and I thought they looked badass. The tattoo isn’t bad—it’s the location that’s the problem. You see, the phrase ‘tramp stamp’ wasn’t common back in the day, and I thought the lower back was an ideal location so that I wouldn’t be seeing it daily and get sick of it. Fast forward to the present, and I can’t go to the beach without getting razzed about my “Plant Stamp.” Furthermore, I was at a concert recently and my wife spotted another woman with the same tramp stamp.

This is not on my toe, but I drew it for my coworker who lost a drunken bet to me. Best or worst? You can decide. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Dick. Posted by CheddarMartin

I was recently in Sweden and wanted to get something quick and simple that had Swedish cultural relevance. So I got an Ikea wrench on my upper arm. It is bad and awesome. posted by cm-meth-enthusiast74

I have one of a spaceman fighting a t-rex, one of a farting hotdog, and one of “chumbawamba” across my toes. Yes. That is an 11-letter word on 10 toes. Happy to provide background if needed... Posted by duffers

This is on my ass. On the way to Spring Break (1st year of law school), I told my friends if they thought of something clever enough and paid for my drinks all week, I would get a tattoo. Runner-up: “Mo Money Mo Problems.” Posted by GrayHays

My friend is not proud of this one...obviously. He let a drunk friend who HAD NEVER TATTOOED BEFORE draw this on him. Sadly I don’t think the Shit-Creek bandits are together anymore. He entered this picture himself in a radio station bad-tattoo contest to try and get $10,000 in free laser removal, but someone else won it. They had a swastika tattoo on their foot or something like that. Posted by YourTeamSucks

"My college roommate became a tattoo artist. They had a tradition at the shop he apprenticed at that every artist had to have one tattoo that they’d give away for free to anyone who asked, but the catch was they were so stupid no one would actually ask for them. His was a flaming bologna sandwich riding a motorcycle. I concurred with him. That was incredibly stupid. “So you’re going to get it, right?” Hell no. He calls me again in a week. “You going to get the tattoo?” Hell no. Another week. “You know you want to.” Hell no. “But if you did get it, what kind of motorcycle would it be?” That’s easy. I love The Great Escape and Lawrence of Arabia. It’d have to be a BSA. But I’m still not getting the stupid tattoo. Then my brain starts churning. If it’s a BSA, there should be a sidecar. But what should be in the sidecar? A pickle. It should absolutely be a pickle. A pickle wearing a helmet and goggles. That’s the point it went from being a tattoo I’d never get to one I had to get. And in all honesty, it’s the perfect tattoo for me. What had kept me from getting a tattoo was, at age 30, I thought of all the things I’d thought were cool when I was 20 and thought how ridiculous I’d feel at 30 if I’d gotten any of them tattooed on me. But the beauty of this tattoo is that it will never be any more or less ridiculous than the day I got it. It’s a fucking flaming bologna sandwich riding a motorcycle with a pickle in the sidecar. It is perfectly ridiculous. It is perfect. It is mine."
