Diaper Rash

To go along with yesterday's post of a man with a baby in a diaper tattoo, I have a picture of TWO men.... with baby FURRIES in diapers. That's right... I'm raising the stakes for you.

Notice closely that it is indeed a dirty diaper.

The Inner Infant?

Some people never grow up, just get older.

What better way to woo the ladies with your inner youth than a permanent picture of a baby on your bod?

That's hot.

Rocket Man

And you know it's gonna be a long long time....

That you're gonna be stuck with that monstrosity.

One Lucky Baby

Everybody loves Mickey Mouse, right? Well, everybody also loves Rat Fink, the dirty smelly spin-off of Mickey Mouse. SOME people love Rat Fink so much, they get tattoos of him. Huge tattoos of him. On their stomachs.

Am I the only one who thinks those people should not be allowed to have children?


As an added bonus, here's a bunch of "Chi-Tonw" pics! Hooray!

Misspelling Mayhem!

I've featured a few misspelled tattoos before, but I think it's time we did a feature on them. Again, if you're going to emblazen yourself permanently with something, you should at least run it through spell check. And as always, it's a toss up for who's stupider... the tattooer or the tattooee. Surely someone along the way should have realized they spelled it rong.

A fairly common mistake. I made it myself. In middle school. (Tragedy /= "tradgedy")

While I fully agree with this statement, I also agree with the purchase of dictionaries. (You're /= "your", dealt /= "delt", and just to be picky, it's /= "its")

Does what? (Else /= "elese")

And the language! (System /= "systsem")

I wonder what the hero dropped? (Heroes /="hero's")

Too dumb to spellcheck. (Too /= "to")

Perhaps the best of this whole bunch:

(Awesome /= "awsome")
I've gotta wonder if he did it on purpose.

(again, You're /= "your")
Aside from the tackiness of using pop song lyrics in tattoos, there's also the literacy aspect.

And neither do you!
(Tomorrow /="tomarrow")

He should have sacrificed a few seconds to look in the dictionary. Loving the star-cover-up, too.
(Sacrifice /= "sacrafice")

And perhaps the most famous misspelled tattoo of all:

In case you missed the story, a dude sued over the misspelling of his "Chi-Town" tattoo, which in itself is nothing to look twice at, but in support of the tattoo artist, all the other artists in the shop ALSO got tattoos that said Chi-Tonw on them, and now it's kind of a fad, and people all over proudly walk around with tatts that deliberately read "Chi-Tonw." Ah, memes in the real world. :)

Just doing my stretches

I'm not marking this one NSFW, because if you've never seen the original then you have no idea what this is.

You lucky bastard.

If you need reminding, you're masochistic, or just stupid, you can see the original image, dubbed "goatse," here. (Definitely not safe for work!) One of the internet's favorite images! :)

Combining My Two Favorite Loves


...and Tractors.

Into one single, sexy tattoo!

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a pin-up girl or a memorial portrait.

Either way, I'd invest in long-sleeved shirts.

Just Like The Original

While personally I'm not really a fan of meaningless tattoos, that just kind of look fancy, I prefer mine to have a story or something behind them, I can respect a nicely done art piece.

I can also shed a single tear for this poor sap. "I want that one!" and pointing? Not always the best idea.

Keep Off the Grass

More tattoos that are good for a chuckle, and then a minute later, another chuckle. That they're stuck with that.

That's hot.

One Hundred!

Today's post is the blog's 100th post! Hoorah! To celebrate I'm going to show you an amazing tatt that I've been hanging on to for quite a while, keeping it for a special occasion. I think of all the bad tattoos I've seen, this is the best. Or the worst, you decide.

Why yes, that IS Beevis and Butthead tag teaming Lisa Simpson. I'll just let you bask in its glory for a while if you like.

The Saddest Kitty Cat

Weird ass tattoo. The best part is if you pay attention to placement, this is right under his chin. 5 years from now, this guy is singlehandedly responsible for the return of the ascot.

Hug Life

Hugs, not drugs? Maybe hugs AND drugs.

Minor Delays

For some strange reason, my scheduled posts are NOT being posted when they're scheduled, I have to manually tell them to publish, which I sometimes don't get around to doing until later in the day. So, keep checking, until I get the problem solved you might have to wait a few extra hours for your daily dose of tragic tattoos. :(

But, as a bonus, here's another tattoo! Yay!

Hot Dog God

Born Delicious, with ketchup in his hand.

Uh, what?

How'd You Get Through Security?

'Cuz baby, you're the bomb!

Anyways, do you have a problem with airport visits that are just TOO SHORT? I mean everybody loves a good little cavity search now and then. Commemoration of our favorite holiday-within-a-holiday, here in tattoo form, and guaranteed to get you a little extra time with your favorite airport security officer!

Juggling Stars

I don't know if this is supposed to be from The Littlest Prince or what, but either way, it sucks.

Full Facial

So I realized that today is Sunday but I only had a lame one pic post scheduled for today. Well we're gonna fix that! Finally, one I've been wanting to do for a long-ass time, a feature on full-face or large face tattoos. Based on the number of these I've ever seen in real life, there are surprisingly many abound on the interwebs. And because I'm a giver, I've gathered them all here for your enjoyment! Yay!

Dave could work with the homeless and give CPR to kittens all day, your parents aren't going to hear anything you say after he walks in the door.

This guy's not crazy, he just got tired of going to the park and having all the chess tables taken already. Sure the pieces are a little close, but it's ok, he's near sighted.

Love Cage Fighting? Love it so much that you're 100% sure you will never want another job, say one that requires you not to have an obnoxious facial modification? Than have we got the tatt for you!

I think of all the ones here, this one is honestly the worst. Not for any particular reason other than the lack of coordination. Run out of room on your doodle pad? Have the need to have Tommy from Rugrats drawn, RIGHT NOW? Hey, why not just put it on your face? Not like you're using that. Just slap it on next to the giant doggy paw.

Some dude in prison, where having a giant tattoo on your face might actually work to your advantage.

I honestly don't know what's worse, a decent looking chick fucking up her face with a giant tattoo, or the fact that it's so damn poorly done!

While this is perhaps the most off-putting and impractical of the lot, I have to say it's my favorite, if for no other reason than the bad ass factor. But again, hope you've got a stable job!

Connect the Dots

I gotta say this one is actually a pretty neat idea. Connect the dots.

It's a giraffe!

The End of the World, The (Re)Beginning of a Blog

So, as the two people who watch this blog has noticed, there hasn't been one. Because I suck. For a while I was torn as to whether or not I wanted to continue it, especially when I found another bad tattoos blog, one that was started after mine, with fewer posts, and a million more fans. But I decided that I really do this for fun, not for the fame and pussy, so I've decided to RESTART Tattoo Travesties. Yay!

I couldn't decide on a date, so, I figured, July 5th. Apparently, the world is ending on July 4th. So I figure, after the world ends, there's gonna be a serious need for bad tattoo blogs out there.

Not much else to tell, except that the blog will now update twice daily, at 1:00 am and 1:00 pm, and on Sundays there will be full features, like this, this, this and this :) Be prepared!

Rude Girl

I'm trying to decide if this tattoo would be worse on a guy or a girl. The jury is still out.

Awesome Amps

Having an amputated limb sucks. But getting a tattoo to make fun of your amputated

But yet again, the novelty will quickly wear off, and you're stuck with a giant fingernail for the rest of your life. Ponder that.

Fiery Eagle Riders

That's one sexy tatt right there. It says, free spirit, while still saying, looking for love.
