Gross Out Your Parents Forever With Garbage Pail Kids Tattoos

Tattoo Ideas2 min Read

We continue our love for all things ‘80s with a look back at the sickest trading cards ever.

If you happen to be a child of the ‘80s there was but one thing that could possibly tickle the pleasure center of your brain like nothing else – grossing people out, especially your parents. This joyous pastime can trace its roots back to 1985 when Garbage Pail Kids trading cards were unleashed on an unsuspecting world. In honor of the monumental achievements the Garbage Pail Kids amassed in the field of making adults feel disgusted, we’re bringing you some totally sick Garbage Pail Kids tattoos.

The cards were an instant hit with damn near every kid on the block. They went viral before going viral was a thing. A live-action movie was quickly shot and premiered in 1987. A cartoon was made, but never really aired due to parental complaint. The cards were quickly banned from schools and Topps was predictably sued by the makers of Cabbage Patch Kids.

These Garbage Pail Kids tattoos make us yearn for the simpler days of the 1980s, even though none of us were getting laid. There was better stuff to do back then, like pissing off our parents and teachers with gross trading cards.
