35 Ugly Tattoos You Should Avoid

Tattoos are meant to make you beautiful and impart a pleasing look to the particular body part where it has been engraved. People get them carved with this very intention. However, at times opposite happens and instead of a beautiful design, an ugly design gets shaped and the wearer has to live with it unless they get it lasered off. Well, it is the folly of the tattoo artist but the wearer has to suffer on this account and get disapproving glances from people. Despite this, ugly tattoos have a unique charm and we all love to hate them in our own different ways.

The ugly tattoos are not always a disaster caused by the tattoo artist. There are some people who intentionally get such a tattoo design to attract attention of onlookers and ugly tattoos always live up to their expectations. Such people are really gutsy and deserve praise for this very attitude. So, today we bring for you 35 ugly tattoos that will give you a glimpse into the ugly world of the designs as well as the men and women who wear them. Take a look and enjoy the drama.

    How can these people live with such weird tattoos? These are damn ugly!

    • Jai

      It’s damn ugly indeed. I don’t get the people having these kind of tattoo. It’s really insane, right Satya?

  • moth

    yes, some of them are badly done, but your quite a douche to judge someone so harshly. there is nothing wrong with these.

    • Sean

      Totally agree. I really don’t like tattoo’s, but the little nuggets of pharisee-inspired hate before each picture makes me feel a little sick.

  • Gina

    I’ll admit that some of these tattoos are not the most attractive to most. But what’s important is how it makes the person who’s wearing them feel about themselves. Who cares what anybody else thinks. And btw the Jimmy Sullivan deathbat is f*cking awesome. Beautifully done. I love it and I’ld wear it proudly! From one Avenger to another.

    • Kamryn

      Heck yeah! So glad I found another Jimmy fan. That was my favorite tattoo on the list and seeing it on here made me a little mad.

    • Brittany Corley

      I’ll admit, I got pretty mad when I saw that the deathbat was on here..

    • Julia Salvatore

      I know right?? The Rev’s death bat tattoo is beautiful, I was furious to see it here! I’ve even got a tattoo designed which will be Avenged related

  • Jai

    I think there’s one in this collection that does not look ugly at all. The Feet Tattoo looks cool to me. Very cool tattoo feet design.

  • Brittany Corley

    The deathbat tattoo can sometimes be random and meaningless. I totally agree. But a foREVer death bat has an abundance of meaning, especially considering that it’s a memorial tattoo to someone who was a inspiration to millions of fans world-wide.

    I love the black wings. The goblin tattoo has an awesome use of color. The shoe tattoo is cute and funny and it would take forever for a store owner to figure it out for no shoes no shirt no service rules. I loved how gollumn was done and the avenged sevenfold bat was cool. The monstrous creature on the guys belly was Taz and its actually not bad. The Jesus tattoo wasn’t detailed but its possible they wanted it that way. There are bad tattoo artists. A good tattoo isn’t cheap and a cheap tattoo isn’t good. Anyways some of these tattoos look incomplete. Finish them. Let’s see them then.

    The distorted instrument piano keys was intentional. It is the cover art for band Cursive’s album “The Ugly Organ.” Please do your research before being so quick to judge art.

    Thank you,
