Tattoo Tuesday: 20 Atrocious Tats That Are Permanent Reminders of Bad Decisions

From poor selection to poor artistry, these people wanted the stick and poke, but got the stick and choke.

One of the defining features of a tattoo is its permanence. If a tattoo turns out no good, then that's too dang bad. Fortunately, there are plenty of systems in place to help you choose the right tattoo before you ink the deal. Friends and family to check your ideas, online reviews, and portfolios to vet the artist, and even a stencil of the design before you get it threaded under your skin. But for whatever reason these folks failed to do their due diligence, and now find themselves on a list of fails. But for whatever reason, plenty of them still seem to think that their body art is a great success. 

Take one dude with a new tattoo of the Slipknot "S" for example. If you're familiar with the logo for the death metal band, you'll quickly realize that the image on the man's arm leaves quite a bit to be desired. Still, in his own words, "I love it." 

In the end, I suppose that the only person who really has to like a tattoo is the person forced to wear it on their body for the rest of their lives. But we're still stuck looking at it, and these 20 people each have art we'd rather not come across in the Museum of Life.
