18 Bad Portrait Tattoos That Will Make You Rethink Your Next Ink

If You’re Going To Get A Tattoo, Just Remember You Get What You Pay For

When it comes to tattoos, quality often comes at a price. Bargain deals might tempt you, but the permanence of a tattoo deserves careful consideration. A low-cost option could mean compromising on the artist’s skill, hygiene standards, or the ink’s quality. These bad portrait tattoos are an excellent example of people who probably should have doubled their budget.

Professional tattoo artists invest time, training, and top-notch equipment. A higher cost reflects their expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to safety. A cheap tattoo might lead to regrettable outcomes like fading, uneven lines, or infection risks. Or a hideous face permanently imprinted on your body, like these bad portrait tattoos.

Because of this, we encourage you to make sure you prioritize your long-term satisfaction and the integrity of your skin by choosing a reputable artist, even if it means spending a bit more.

We know, it sounds obvious… but check these out.

Let’s title this one: “A Marilyn and Rick James Fusion.”

Poor Marilyn. Why does everyone have to be obsessed with her and then go and butcher that beautiful face?

Woah, not even sure where to go with this one. The tattoo looks like a medieval cat painting, but for a baby. Thinking this artist might want to brush up on the fading skills.

Biggie, is that you?

Without a reference pic, it’s hard to make fun of this one. However, the caption here is fascinating: Money Talk. This guy who exists in a strange bubble that’s reminiscent of the case for David Duchovny’s hand in Zoolander talks about money. Cool. Or maybe it’s supposed to say “Money Talks”, in which case… cool.

This poor woman. She’s really pretty but her forever-imprint not so much.

The drawing itself is cute, but as a tattoo it looks more like it was drawn on by a 4 year old.

Let’s title this one: Hopeful Eyes.

Chucky, is that you?

Reminds faintly of Linda Blair from Poltergeist, but at 57 years old.

Are those supposed to be moles, or is this captured by a sixth grader right before Halloween?

Hard to make fun of this one because we always want to honour those who’ve passed on. So let’s just say that mullets are amazing, especially when they’re tattooed on someone’s skin. In terms of bad portrait tattoos, this one wins the award for best mullet, hands down.

Where is that hand coming from? Is this Jesus? What are of the body is this featured on? There are many more questions, but we’ll leave it at that.

Again, we’d love to see a reference photo. However, suffice to say this is definitely an excellent sketch made while drunk and then turned into a really awful tattoo. As far as bad portrait tattoos go, this one is a masterpiece.

The flowers are so pretty. (We like to stay positive around here.)

I mean why wouldn’t you? It’s like a death-doll version of Harley Quinn, but in your armpit.

Bob! What did they do to BOB?? He looks more like John Leguizamo.

They actually captured his nose quite well.
