10 of the Worst Fan Tattoos Ever

Fan tattoos are fun for those who truly are a fan of something or someone. They're expression is partly the expression of whoever or whatever they are a fan of. Fan tattoos are possibly one of the highest forms of a compliments. For someone to be such a fan that they're willing to get it permanently tattooed onto their skin? That's commitment of fandom! A bad fan tattoo, however, isn't so flattering. It can be pretty amusing, though! Here are 10 of the worst fan tattoos ever inked on human skin:

Cover Up Tattoos: Second Time Around

Cover up tattoos are a good option for tattoos that may not hold up the way they used to. No need to be embarrassed, it happens to the best of us! For some, laser tattoo removal is a good option. For others a great cover up could be a better option. It takes a skilled tattoo artist to be able to come up with an effective way to cover up an old tattoo. The design must work with the existing tattoo, to either incorporate parts of it into a new design, or to have dark enough areas in the new design to completely cover it up.

Traditional Tattoos: Classic Ink

Traditional Tattoos have a rich history and a long lasting style. Tattoo artists like Sailor Jerry have made the style well recognized and well known, but these kinds of tattoos have existed for quite a while. In the beginning of Western tattoo history, when tattoos were still very taboo for the common person, the only people who would get them were sailors and other military members, and people in fringe subcultures, such as the famed "Freak Show" folk.

Unique Divorce Tattoos: A New Beginning with Ink

A unique divorce tattoo won't absolve all of the hurt and pain (and drama) of a divorce, but it can help along the healing process. So many people find happiness in marriage only to suffer the bitter disappointment of divorce. That's putting it lightly for most cases. Getting a divorce tattoo can be freeing and help with the "mourning" process of the ending of a marriage. For some, it can truly be a sign of freedom, for others it can signify getting back to basics, or finding themselves again.

Meaningful Tattoos: True Expression of the Soul

Meaningful Tattoos are truly a way to take the art of tattoo and make it into a true expression of the soul. Think about the most important moments of your life thus far. Think about the people who mean most to you. Think about your successes, your failures, your gains and losses. No matter how old you are, I'm sure you can think of many moments, or maybe just a profound few. Some of you may even get a little misty eyed, or a swell of pride. People get meaningful tattoos for all sorts of reasons.

9 Eye Catching Arm Tattoos for Men

Arm tattoos for men are among the most popular choices and most attractive tattoos. The arm is an extremely visible part of the male body, however, it is also easy to cover up with shirt sleeves if the wearer has a job or career that does not allow for tattoos to show. There are many concepts in tattoo that work better for the arm area than other parts of the body.

Neck Tattoo: Bold Choice or Big Pain?

Neck tattoos are not easy to hide. This placement choice is bold and should be chosen after much thought and consideration. For some, it's no problem, but for others it could end up being a pain in the neck if the career path they end up following does not allow for such a visible area for ink. The neck is a very expressive area to tattoo because it is so close to the face, which is the most visible part of the body. Many styles would be great for the neck, especially floral and old school, or more abstract and stylized.

Hot Trend: Rib Tattoos for Girls

Rib tattoos for girls is a hot trend, and it's one that will hopefully last! The female form is beautiful in its many shapes, sizes, and types. The ribs are strategically in the breast area and just above the hips, another very sensual part of the female form and ideal place for tattoos. It is a fairly large area for a good sized tattoo, which also allows for lots of detail and artistic expression. The styles for the rib area vary, as such an ideal spot can fit many different themes and concepts.

Tattoo 3D: Taking Tattoo to a Whole New Dimension

3D tattoos truly take the art of tattoo to a whole new dimension. The 3D tattoo plays tricks on the eyes, making the viewer's brain read it as something completely different than ink on skin. The brain translates these tattoos as their own separate entities. At least, that's what a true 3D tattoo is supposed to do. Inking a successful 3D tattoo takes true artistic vision and expertise.
