11 Tattoos That Basically Summed Up 2015

Xavier in Funny

These are tattoos that will get you wondering, “Somebody got a tattoo of that?!” But since it's 2015, you don't really ask why.

I think we can all agree that 2015 has been a yet another delightfully screwed up year in the 21st century and it's bound to get more and more peculiar in the coming years. We've survived another year of memes, mindlessly catchy songs, WTF pieces of news, and of course, tattoos that are so bad they're good.

Remember when a damn ugly dress that can't decide which colors it wanted to look like broke the internet almost as hard as Kim Kardashian's ass did last year? This dude from Austin, Texas got The Dress tattooed to fill up a pretty sweet space on his leg as it seemed to be the only meme that really got under his skin.

Before I begin, let me tell you that I have read all three books from the trilogy and I must say that I think I've wasted three days for the sake of literature and pop culture. That book was a piece of hot trash. But that didn't stop many from getting their knickers wet at the sound of “Mr. Grey”.

Coming from a Pokémon fan, this is one of the best things that happened this year. I mean, who gets drunk and decides to give himself a tattoo of Charmander in Tim Burton style? Legend.

We forgot just how a scene-stealing, backup-dancing, blue shark stole the show and the hearts of the millions watching the Super Bowl halftime show—including a Colorado bar owner named Matty. Read his story here.

We were all for Caitlyn when she first came out because hey, it's about time we let people be themselves already but we weren't too pleased with the reality star after she got away from being charged of misdemeanor manslaughter in a vehicular accident in Malibu which involved one death. Wonder how this tattooed fan now feels.

Not to mention her recent setback—gotten a bit too frank in an interview: “If you’re out there and, to be honest with you, if you look like a man in a dress, it makes people uncomfortable.” Enough said.

Netflix and chill—and tattoos, maybe?

Don't quite get how something as innocent and antisocial as Netflix quickly became a sexual innuendo. Man, that was awful.

Here's to everybody who felt queasy after having spent their younger days watching The Cosby Show, thinking how hilarious that man was. Bill Cosby, everyone.

One of the best shades ever thrown this year. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, let me direct you here. Safe to say I'm not the biggest Miley fan there is, but it looks like somebody else enjoyed it way more than I did. You got it, Kris.

You used to call me on my cell phone~ Yes, somebody got a tattoo of that one too.

Here's to another year of memes and terrible slangs, scene stealers and scandals, and hopefully, better hit songs.
