Who doesn’t love a terrible tattoo? While tattoos can be meaningful, artistic and trendy, they can also be a complete dumpster fire. July 17th marks national tattoo day. Here are my top picks for the worst tattoos on the planet.
As a Catholic guy, I feel that I have a license to steal when it comes to priest jokes or anything involving the church. This has to be the most unique depiction of Christ that I have seen to date. According to the tattoo above, Jesus really went out with a bang. The guy could turn water into wine, walk on water and apparently engage in fellatio while being executed.
We all know and love Kobe Bryant. He is obviously one of the best basketball players of all time and a historic sports icon. Many people still mourn his sudden and tragic death and try to cope with it in any way that they can. This has to be the most genuine attempt at a tribute as possible but, fuck man, this is an eye sore to say the least. One can only hope that this was a prison tattoo and wasn’t done by a professional because my God a 4th grader might be able to do better.
Every guy has a fear of going bald. Some try Bosley, different balding shampoos or eating healthier. This guy just said fuck it, I’m gonna tattoo hair on my head for life. Aside from the fact that the color is off, he didn’t even give himself a good hairline. I wonder how much ink they used for this dude to get his “hair” back? Anyways, it would be hilarious if he still gets sunburnt on his head after all that work.
I saved the best for last. This photo came from a TV show, Fear Goggles, where friends choose a tattoo to give each other. I don’t know what I would do if one of my homies chose this for me but this is an inside joke that will last a lifetime. It is funny, detailed and overall ruthless. That guy’s friends chose violence that day and the scars will last for eternity. This is 10/10.
HAPPY NATIONAL TATTOO DAY!!
