Let’s face it – we’ve all made a terrible decision, at least once. Most of us probably harbor cringeworthy regrets that, after overcoming the initial self-loathing period, make us grateful we’ve matured and moved on from that time in our lives. But what if you had to wake up every morning and stare at your biggest regret in the mirror? What if your biggest regret was permanently stained on your face? Welcome to the world of terrible face tattoos!
When you think about it, there’s really no higher form of commitment than a face tat. You can’t divorce it. You can’t tell your tattoo you need some space and you’ll be getting your own apartment for a while. No amount of bleach will scrub it clean and no amount of booze can make you forget you have a giant penis inked across your cheekbone (yes, a penis- there’s photographic evidence below).
Okay, okay, we know what you’re thinking. What if these permanently masked people get rid of all the mirrors in their homes and never sneak glances in car windows or reflective downtown buildings? Then their physical appearance won’t have a negative psychological effect on their day-to-day lives! WRONG. Have you ever gone on a job interview with a tattoo of your boyfriend’s name (in Old English, size 220 font) scrawled across your cheeks? Have you ever tried to bring home a grown-ass, checker-faced man to meet your mother?
If you answered yes to either of those questions, you probably won’t be as entertained by the crazy face tattoo fails we’ve compiled in this list. If you answered no (high five), get ready to be wooed and wowed by the most painfully epic face tattoos out there. Are there any good face tattoo ideas? You be the judge!
