15 Terrible Tattoos That Someone Actually Paid For

The whole point of tattoos is that they are permanent. With that key factor in mind, you would think putting ample amounts of time, effort and design into them would be extremely important to anyone. On top of this, finding someone skilled who you trust to accurately draw out and tattoo your idea is essential to being satisfied with the outcome. Some people skip all of these steps entirely and the resulting feverish images and scrawled out artworks are nothing less than horrifying. It's almost as if the permanency of tattoos has not set in for some.

It's a wonder why anyone would want to publicly share the permanent disasters they have etched into their bodies, but luckily, they do. Normally, when originally shared by the live canvases they are proud of or at least happy with the outcome. As we all know though, nothing is private nor sacred. Reddit has a few tattoo fail sharing forums on their site, one of which titled r/sh*ttytattoos. Here are 15 of the worst, most shocking pieces of permanent art.
