19 Times Tattoos Went Terribly, Terribly WRONG

Bon Jovi Tattoo Fail

Tattoos can be totally HOT. These, well, are definitely not.

Tattoo failures are never funny … when it’s on you! (Haha!) In any other case, they’re pretty darn hysterical.

Getting a tattoo should be treated as a HUGE decision, and you should always do your research beforehand — unless you want to give us a reason to laugh.

So consider this your warning to think twice and always get a second opinion (from someone sober) before permanently marking up your body.

Meanwhile, sit back, enjoy and laugh these tattoo fails until it hurts (and be thankful it’s not YOU on this list!).

Great mug shot! With your lightning bolt — or wait — is that actually a Christmas tree?
