Jesus Wept: Another Instalment of BAAAAD TATTOOS

I have a bad tattoo. Actually, I have a couple of them. So bad, that I realized at the tender age of 22 that I needed to just…stop. Take a long break from getting tattoos, until I had figured my shit out. I didn’t start up again until I was 35, knew quite a few talented artists, and had a holistic perspective on my body art. My first tattoo, which I got at Mama’s at age 18, is the bane of my existence. Some random hippie dude playing his guitar with mediocre skill outside the liquor store complimented me on it the other day, and I lost the minuscule respect I had for his humanity. I don’t know why I haven’t yet covered my bad tattoos up, but I think it’s out of fear of making them worse; like karma will say, no, you’re not getting out of these bad decisions so easily. So when I put together a collection of bad tattoos like the one below, I feel like I can laugh at them because I’m part of the bad tattoo community. Plus, many of the bearers of bad tattoos are the ones who posted these pictures for our enjoyment. So enjoy.
