Tattoo Fails happen, even to the most loyal tattoo enthusiasts. You live, and you learn in life, and when it comes to tattoos. Some tattoos are so awful however, that it leaves innocent bystanders scratching their heads, averting their eyes, or in complete amusement and sometimes even laughter. Sometimes it is the tattoo wearer’s fault, in a terrible idea or design that the wearer thought would be a great idea. Other times, it’s the lack of research in the tattoo artist or blind trust in a tattooist that is not quite up to the challenge. Sometimes tattoo fails happen when tattoo enthusiasts want to get a “great deal” on their ink. Whatever the case may be, there are countless tattoo fails out there in the world today.
