People have always been divided on the subject of tattoos – some love them enough to cover practically their entire body in ink, and others despise them enough to threaten their kids with the prospect of being disowned if they ever dare to get a tat of their own.

But tattoos are way more than just designs and patterns. Some are political, some are romantic, and some are just plain stupid. They can say a lot about you as a person and that’s not a good thing if you happen to be deficient in, well, common sense and general decency.

Unfortunately, (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) tattoo fails happen on a daily basis and they never cease to amaze me.

So, without further ado, here are 23 of the most side-splittingly hilarious tattoo fails from around the world…

1. Oh, sweet Jesus

She longs to keep Christ close to her chest.

2. This guy wants you to know that he’s not intelligent or strong… but he’s still remarkable

This tattoo is unnecessarily convoluted, but it’s okay because it’s not the best tattoos which are remarkable or aesthetically appealing. It’s the ones that make you read the entire length of someone’s torso. My meaning of life is to enjoy the stupidity that other people’s choices create.
