Submitter’s comment: Found this beauty on good old facebook. This tattoo is for a girl who passed away about two years ago I believe and I’m pretty sure she got it done by a family friend or uncle or something like that. It is by the looks of it suppose to be a flower. It is placed on her leg.

- Submitter Comment: These popped up on my Facebook news feed.A friend of mine first posted her boyfriends “tattoos” and then posted herself also getting “tattoos”. I then commented and called her out saying “Have fun with infections and a terrible tattoo” and she goes “what are you talking about? These are completely legit in my kitchen” ….need I go on?
- What’s awful?: These are prison style tattoos being done in someones kitchen, they think they look “so good!” It’s not clean, it’s shaky at best. These tattoos are terrifying.
- How it can be fixed: HELP!
Submitter’s comments: My acquaintance is super into anime. I love Sailor Moon, so this breaks my heart.
What’s awful: Lines look like a drunk person did it. The circles are wonky. This doesn’t even warrant a “you tried” star! (Have at it and add in any thing else you see fit)
How it can be fixed: Stop going to your “Tattoo artist” friend. She’s nice but all of the tattoos she has done were just plain awful. Go to a professional! I doubt there’s anyway to fix this…
Submitter’s comment: This is my brother’s ex (and mother of his son Payton). She posted this picture on facebook a little while ago. Her cousin (who claims he is a “professional” working at a tattoo shop) did the tattoo for only $1! When everyone tried to explain to her that is was a shit tattoo- she and the tattooist got extremely defensive and bragged on and on about how great the work was.
What’s awful: Everything. The lines are wonky and uneven. The letters come too close to the box. It’s just … bleck.
How it can be fixed: Don’t ever get tattoos from a clearly shitty tattoo artist.
SUBMITTER COMMENT: A friend of mine goth this done a couple of months ago. Shes 15 and she said a friend did it. Considering shes underage I doubt it was at a legal shop.
WHATS AWFUL: The shading is bad the lines are wobbly. She drew the image herself.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Coverup.
Submitter’s comment: In addition to the “I love my family” tattoo that was submitted a few days ago, I found Facebook page of the girl who did the tattoo, looked around, and found a couple more tattoos that she has done. The arm on the left is her, and the right is her boyfriend’s, both tattoos were done by her. This is a tattoo that she did on her brother. In the comments, she claims that they are “pretty good for never having touched a machine before!”
What’s awful: First of all, she admitted to not being experienced whatsoever. She basically picked up a tattoo machine and went at it with no knowledge of how to tattoo. The writing is completely horrible, some lines are darker than others, inconsistent script, it looks like it was written by a five year old. I cannot get over how that fishing lure looks…and the “gone fishing” script is just scary. Everything about these tattoos is horrible!
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: Saw this come up on my dash and I honestly thought it never would. I thought the people I was following had more sense than to do something dumb like this.
WHAT’S AWFUL: It’s a stick and poke. What more needs to be said? Apart from being rather poorly done, it is incredibly unhygienic and unhealthy to even consider doing stick & poke tattoos. I’m willing to bet this person had no autoclave, no tattooing experience, nada.
At least with their placement choice it probably won’t stick very well.
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: I’m actually submitting myself on here in hopes people will read this and take their time before getting a tattoo. I was 16 when I got this done (in Idaho, you could get tattooed at 14 with parental consent.) I brought in a very clear picture of the leaves, and told him I wanted it exactly like the picture. Needless to say, I did not get it. The stencil looked like the picture, but the tattoo did not. I went back in when I was 18 to see what could be done, only to find out that the guy who did mine was fired for terrible work. I’ve gotten it “fixed” as much as I could, now it just looks like black blobs on my chest. Trust with your artist is important. If you ever feel uncomfortable, don’t do it.
