The people that you will see below are those who didn’t really think hard about what kind of tattoo they wanted. We’re sure these people didn’t expect things to go so badly but that’s what happened. Let’s get to it!

Merriage Is Permanent

This tattoo is one of the unique ways of expressing one’s desire to tie the knot after dating for some time. Nina never would have guessed that her boyfriend had something cheesy planned for her. Sadly, he wasn’t able to spell it right.

Is This Hefner’s Arm?

We can’t really blame this guy, considering the fact that there are so many women in the world. He never meant to get her name spelt wrong. It just so happened that he did. At least he was able to cover it up.

Everyone has their favorite food, right? It’s the food that they would love to eat over and over again. As much as we love these dishes and delicacies, you probably would never even consider tattooing your favorite food on your face.

She is either a trendsetter or one of the winners of epic tattoo fails. We can tell that she really loves Drake, but the question we need answers to is this: does Drake love her as well? This is one of the classic cases of the phenomenon called the “Drake Case”.

You might want to double check this mistake that we see here. The tattoo artist didn’t seem to notice that mistake, though. Life shouldn’t be about regrets. It doesn’t have to be about regerts either.
