25 Terrible Tattoos You Would Avoid To Have

What is the first thought that comes to mind when one mentions tattoos, the traditionally modern art form? Beauty and artistry, of course. Well, nothing wrong with the answer and it is right from every angle. However, one must have heard about the creative branch strongly rooted in this art form and this very branch has terrible tattoos growing over it. Yes, tattoos can be terrible too and people get them intentionally at times. Some are also unfortunate as the particular tattoo is not their desire but only a wrong choice of the artist.

Well, whatever it might be, the result is really unique. People who get it done intentionally do so with the aim of getting a unique tattoo. The tattoos that are terrible cater to the wish of the men and women in a perfect manner. Most of the designs that come under this category include blood, gore, fearful portraits and ugly patterns. At times an inappropriately located tattoo also becomes dreadful to watch, though the artifact might be excellent in its sole format. If you are thinking of checking out such horrible and awe-inspiring art forms then take a look at this post. It will give you cool glimpses.

    Waaaaa… This is what I’m telling about. Like having a tattoo all over your body. It looks very dirty. If you want a tatto in your body, you must see to it that it will look good and will suit you badly. ^^

    Ok SOME of these “terrible tattoos” were bad but most of them were actually nice pieces of work.
    And to say someone has “too many tattoos” or that they “are in the wrong place” E.g the head or face is just not right. Who are we to say that someone has to many tattoos.

    I feel shocked at the case of the article saying the Maori tattoos was an “overdose” and that it marred (“mar”) the rest of his design. This is the mans culture . If you look up the Maori peoples on google (or on images) nearly every one of the culture has a facial tattoo. For women it’s usually the chin area and for men the full face of low half of the face. To say this is an overdose was quite frankly wrong and if taken further a wee bit racist.
