$20 Tattoos, Anyone?
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: These gems are of a friend’s friend who proudly shows off his work thinking that it’s okay to scribble on other people’s skin. He is fully aware that he is not supposed to be tattooing minors but does it anyway. He charges $60 for any tattoo, but will knock it down to $20 if he thinks you’re cute - just slightly creepy.
WHAT’S AWFUL: Since when did Hello Kitty’s hands look like female pleasure toys instead of cute little mittens? The preparation and tattooing took only 10 or so minutes; he obviously didn’t take the time to make sure everything was sterilized and to tattoo with detail. Just look how inconsistent the shading is in both photos and how wonky the lines are. All of the faces’ eyes are asymmetrical, and in the skull tattoo, their teeth are all uneven! Oh, and the Hello Kitty tattoo’s coloring ended up fading within a week.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Get a cover up from someone from a highly reputable shop so that you won’t have to live with such a ridiculous mistake on your skin. Don’t go to a tattoo “artist” who knows he is doing something illegal but doesn’t even know that everything has to be in a sterile, professional environment. Van Gogh’s art is expensive for a reason, and it’s the same thing with masterpiece tattoos.
