If you decide to go down that last route, make sure you don’t make the same mistake that the fools on this list made. Don’t cheap out on a tattoo of your loved one, because if you do, they’ll end up looking like one of the incredible melting nightmares on this list.
We don’t want to go so far as to say that the human canvases on this list didn’t love their family members enough to shell out the cash to get good work done. But um… that might be true? Whatever debt you rack up to get a great piece of work put on your body is definitely worth not having to apologize to someone you love about your awful tattoo for the rest of your life. Which is what we’re assuming the folks on this list are doing. Either that or these tattoos are all elaborate pranks being played out on a truly Machiavellian level. Either way, these are worst portrait tattoos we’ve ever seen.
Vote up the most hideous portrait tattoo fails and then share photos of your coolest tattoos so we can make fun of them. If you haven’t noticed, that’s something we like to do.
