  •  
    A heart with Ribbon. This was done at my ex-boyfriends house when I was 15 with a needle, thread and indian ink. My ex did the tattoo himself :( ~Debbie
  •  
    Naked Girl. This tattoo is about 8 years old. My friend had just started as a tattoo artist. One night during a party, while drunk, I decided it would be a good idea to let him give me a tattoo. I now have a three year old daughter. I am embarrassed to wear shorts when I take her to day care (it is at a church). I hate this tattoo and want it gone. ~Aaron B.
  •  
    Nautical Star. I got it done when I was 16 years old on my living room couch by a friend I now have hated ever since. Its embarrassing wearing shorts, and everyone calls it a starfish or a flower. -___- ~Victor
  •  
    Ex girl friend. When I was young and dumb. Me and my wife of 8 years can not stand it any longer. ~Aaron D.
  •  
    Crabs. I was 18, thought it would be cool to represent my cancer sign ... never thought someone would point down n say ... Oh, Sh-t you got crabs. Its embarrassing. ~Marty
  •  
    Frog/sybolizing a time period of my life. 8 years ago at friends house. I got married to high school sweetheart right before she joined the Air Force and moved to Germany,I was on probation at the time so I couldn't leave the country until I was clear. Over the course of the next several months I got very close to a female friend and ended up sleeping with her. The night before i moved to Germany to be with my wife, I got this tattoo symbolizing a big section of my life. I metioned to the friend that I was getting the tattoo (it's from a video game called Ribbit King, which if you smoke pot, you should definitly check out). Even to this day, no matter how i explain it to her, my wife sees it as a reminder of me cheating. ~Britton
  •  
    Phoenix. I was drunk and had decided to tattoo myself. Of course I don't remember it until I woke up n my buddy pressed play on the VCR. And this is the tattoo. Its horrible flat out n simple I hate it and I'm to get married in sept. and my wife wants it covered or removed. ~Eddie
  •  
    Boss Lady. Young, dumb, and drunk. What else can I say? I got demoted. ~Tiffany
  •  
    A wicked jester ... ish. When I was 18 after Marine boot camp and I thought I was a BAMF ... Got it in seabrook for like $400 :( It's a terrible representation of the Marine Corps and it's also the wrong weapon on it's hands!!! ~Ivan
  •  
    My wife's face. I had it done in prison in 2005. It looks god awful and she can be standing next to me and people still ask, who's that. Hurts her feelings. ~Nick
  •  
    Animal print. My 1st tattoo was from a convention. 45 mins later then I cried for days cuz no one could figure out what it was ... cheese pizza with olives, amoeba, worm, etc etc were some of the guesses. ~Dulce
  •  
    Rose. When I turned 18, I got a matching rose tattoo with my 2 best friends. 2 mos. after the tattoo, my best friends didn't even show at my wedding. Plus you can't even tell what it is anymore :( ~Angela
  •  
    Gargoyle/protection. Louisiana at some shop. It's on my stomach and my husband and I are trying to get pregnant. It was something I did a long time ago, an off the wall tattoo. It's in the worst spot ever and everyone thinks it's a spider. ~Quinn
  •  
    "Butterflies". 2001 San Antonio. They just look like blurs on my chest. ~Maria
  •  
    It looks like a giant roach, It was suppose to be the Nirvana Fairy. ~America

    Skulls of see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. It looks awful and wasnt at all what I wanted. ~Alex
  •  
    My exs name from when I was 19 and the ugliest butterfly ive ever seen. His uncle did the tattoo while I was drunk and agreed to anything lol It Isn't my kids dad or my husband. ~Christie
  •  
    It is the word Texas. I was 16 and it was in some guys apartment. Long story short, A lot of sketchy situations, a small riot was formed, cops were called, I bailed before they showed up, and a news crew showed up. Although the story was a good one, the T resembles an F and all my friends make fun of me for it. ~Alex
  •  
    Itchy & Scratchy. At age 16, I was young and stupid. My boyfriend (at the time) and I had a dream that I had this tattoo. We broke up two years later and now this tattoo is the equivalent (to me) of an ex-boyfriend's name tattooed on me. ~Jennifer
  •  
    Tinkerbell/child's name. I was in my early 20's & went thru a Tinkerbell phase. I'm almost 30 & well I grew up a bit. Also thought it would be cool to put my Son's name on the bottom! wth! It's terrible and I hate it. ~Esperanza
  •  
    Stars. Back in 2009 in a friends garage by a friend who had wanted to pick up doing tattoos, I was his second tattoo he had ever done. (For obvious reasons, he no longer does tattoos.) The stars are not straight and it's very unprofessional for the career I'm trying to be in. ~Ashely
  •  
    It is a wedding band. I got it done in 2008 while I was stationed in California. I got divorced.....a year ago. ~Terl
  •

    Carrtoon wolf. IT IS A TRAMP STAMP. ~Wesley

    Suppose to be a Lilly flower. On my 18th bday at a small tattoo shop in Texas City. I’m a teacher and it's on my foot where it's noticeable. ~Amber
  •  
    It's Tinkerbell gone horribly wrong. This was my first ever tattoo on my lower back. Luckily it didn't ruin my taste for ink. It was without color originally and has been through one "makeover" to try to improve it. EPIC FAIL! I'm too pretty to have such horrible ink on me. lol... Seriously though, I would really like it gone so that I can get an elegant full back tattoo without this horrible Tinkerbell ruining it. ~Kristin
  •  
    Nothing significant. It was about 2 1/2 years ago, in my friend’s house. It haunts me every day. And I’m tired of it making me look dumb. ~Irving
  •  
    Outline of dragon around right nipple. 2004ish by ex sister in law. Incomplete. No color. Looks horrible. ~Robin
  •  
    Cross/Christianity. Tattoo was supposed to be metallic looking with a nice shadow. Unfortunately, it turned out like this, and it didn't help that the tattoo "artist" was on the phone while inking. Want it removed because change of beliefs and it just didn't turn out good at all. ~Matthew
  •  
    Ex-Girlfriends Name. One month after I left my ex-wife, I met this girl and we went from 0 to 100 in about a month. I got this tattoo very soon after we started dating because she got my name on her. I’m remarried with two kids, my current wife hates it, I hate it and my sons want to know why I have someone's name on me. ~Andrew
  •  
    Dale from the Rescue Rangers. It's ugly and dumb! ~Daniela
  •  
    Supposed to be Tinkerbell. In Seattle, 13 years ago, on my chest. I went in to get a sassy & sexy Tinkerbell tattoo ... very fitting of my personality. What I walked out with is Tinkerbell, the AFTER years!! Her hair is thinning (fading) and her legs are thick and dumpy. I literally got the Roseanne of all Tinkerbell tattoos and she needs to take a hike … stat! ~Julie
  •  
    Zombie Pentagram Tramp Stamp. Rob Zombie came to town and played at Verizon on November 11, 2009. Zombie put on an awesome show and I moshed myself into a drunken stupor. Made my way to a tattoo shop and passed out in the chair with visions of pentagrams in my head. Woke up to this tramp stamp. I'd like to go to the beach with my girlfriend. Dude with a tramp stamp, need I say more. ~Brandon
  •  
    Raphael painting two angels. My father asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I told him a tattoo. I was 18, we did not do our research and wet to the first tattoo shop we saw. My father is no longer with me and the memory of that day is great, but the tattoo must go as you can see it's horrible. The angels look like my child drew it and colored it!!! ~Theresa
  •  
    Tinkerbell, me watching over my nieces and nephew. I got it when I was 18 on Christmas break from Army basic training. I love Tinkerbell and wanted a tattoo. The only thing Tinkerbell I had on me was a small keychain. I tried to have it touched up but the next guy only made it worse. ~Amanda
  •  
    Crappy skull/something to remember friends. Got this, well, ended up with it after my buddies and I had a night of drinking and I passed out. It was a couple of days before I was to enlist into the Marines. They said it was something to remember them by when I finished boot camp and was shipped out. Needless to say it made me have to wait to go to bootcamp. I didn't want it and I HATE IT! And it can't even be covered. ~Ted
  •  
    Stars and ribbons. It looks horrible and it is gross looking. ~Krystal
  •  
    A past engagement, and a cover up of that engagement tattoo. I DESPERATELY need this removed because it has affected employment opportunities since I’ve moved back to Texas, as well as gotten in the way of relationships. The relationship of which caused this tattoo to happen became abusive, which is why I left, so its also an ugly reminder that I'd like to rid from my daily life. ~Lynse
  •  
    Spider on a web . I was living with my Step-mother in a pretty shady situation. She let this 40 something year old guy straight out of prison rent out a room. I had a friend over that came from a "Normal Loving family." The guy made a tattoo gun and we both ended up with spiders on our boobs. The guy really was just looking for a excuse to touch our boobs and he made several inappropriate comments during the tattooing. Back then I accepted that I was a stupid troubled teen that made a stupid choice. Now I have young teenage daughters of my own and looking back on this makes me sick. ~Melissa
  •  
    My b---h a-s ex wife. I had it done at a hole in the wall tattoo shop when I was 19. I divorced my ex wife 2 years ago and tattooed void over it but I'd like it completely gone now. I really hate my ex wife and want her name off of me!!! ~Rickey
  •  
    Thug life, 1995. Did it prison style ... Needle, thread, ink ... Lots of alcohol beforehand!! Don't want my son to see it when he gets older. ~Jeremy
  •  
    I had it done two weeks prior to my 16th birthday, at a guy's house in my mom's neighborhood. It's seriously the worst thing EVER. I can't wear a two piece bathing suit during the summer and it's embarrassing when people ask about all of my tattoos. ~Dixie
  •  
    4 green aces on fire. 10 years ago on st pattys day i thought i was feeling lucky and ran into a guy at a bar who said he did tattoos. Went back to his place and got molested with this ... ~Erik
  •  
    My luck with men, before my husband that is ;) Was to young and drunk to remember. It's a tramp stamp that says a--hole magnet. ~Elizabeth B.
  •  
    Barbed wire heart with ex-wife's name in ribbon. 1. It has my ex-wife's name. 2. It's blurry, faded, ugly. ~Gary
  •  
    Represents my first marriage. I had the tattoo done in August of 2004 while I was in the Army. I was married in Nov of 03, and was deployed to Iraq two weeks after my honey moon for a year of stop loss. I came home for two weeks leave in August, and had a dragon screwing a fairy done on my right arm. A month later while back in Iraq I found out that my wife had been cheating on me ever since I was deployed. So with a knife and lighter I did my own self removal of the fairy. The joke is the dragon had to burp but farted and blew his a$$ off, and the fairy with it. ~Bryan
  •  
    Flames. A friend did them at my house about fifteen years ago. I have missed out on three really good life-changing jobs because they are so ghetto-looking and they can't be covered by clothing. They really pose an image that does not represent me at all. ~Mike M.
  •  
    Cover up of tweety bird with a shotgun. Then I had a friend come over with his tattoo gun and claimed he could cover it up with a cool tribal. Well I had too many drinks and fell asleep as he started and this is what the final product looks like. OMG its so embarrassing! I can never take my shirt off anywhere. ~Mike M.
  •  
    Turbo Snail. I had it done a few years ago when I met this guy at the gym. He had his own tattoo gun and I always told him no 'cause I thought his artwork sucked. Well one night in my apartment I was drunk and he finally convinced me that he could do an awesome job. It came out really bad. Anyway, I moved on. A month later, he is waiting outside my apartment saying he couldn't get in his place. So i let him in and I fell asleep. While I was asleep, he took my wallet, Military ID, ran up $500 in charges on my card and took my Subaru wrX STI out for a joy ride. He denied he did it until the end. It reminds me of a shitty person And it looks just aweful. ~David
  •  
    A bulls head a bunch of us got after bull riding one night. Circa 1995 in Houston It's a messed up blob. ~Jason
  •  
    Ex husband. Homemade tattoo gun. Hate his guts. Hate tattoo. ~Victoria
  •  
    Ex-Wife's Name as a Tramp Stamp. I feel branded. How many guys do you know with a "Tramp Stamp?" My fiance' refuses to marry me until it is gone! No cover up's allowed! Totally embarrassing for a man! ~Timothy F.
  •  
    An exes name. I was 20 yrs old in an altered state of mind in the attempt to prove my love and dedication lol. His name AND birth date (so nobody would confuse it for their name) are tattooed on my neck. ~Myra
  •  
    Mutated butterfly/snake/dolphin. Had it done may 2011. My husband & i were having issues back then and a "friend" drew it (we would come up with these random mixes of animals and he'd draw them all mutated together). Out of anger towards my husband for not wanting to participate in lemonade day with our then 4 yr old, i left and went to get one of the drawings tatted on with no thought. The next day at lemonade day, my mom pointed out it looked like a penis fish. I don't talk to this "friend" anymore and my husband & i have never been better now and its just a horrible reminder of many mistakes done at that time. ~Sylvia
  •  
    King P. Nate K. I would like it removed be cause it reminds me of and old boyfriend I had who used to beat me and was making me have sex for money with other people. He made me get this tattoo to basically brand me. I finally got away while he was gone. And I have had this haunting me since. ~Sonja
  •  
    Grim Reaper crapping on toilet. I had this work done back in like 2003. My artist said it was such a horrible tattoo that he would do it for free. So after a 6 hour session, and 11 years later I want it gone. ~Derrick
  •  
    Got it 6 years ago. I don't remember the place due to being piss drunk. I woke up the next morning and realized what I had done. Now It's a constant reminder of the all the bad things she put me through. My girlfriend can't stand it. She makes me wear a shirt or turn out the lights when we have sex. ~Keith
  •  
    Christian Triskele. On my inner right ankle. I love the tattoo, except for the allergic reaction I had to the red ink. It was said to me that it also may have mercury in it. I have had three treatments on it already. The left picture is the day the tat was done. The top right picture is after my first treatment. Bottom right is today's picture. It will never heal and will always itch if it is not taken care of. ~Cali
  •  
    Bear with chainsaw arms. Katy, tx a couple years ago. I Just want to be on the show. ~Matt
  •  
    Stitched up heart & blobs. The tattoo originally started out as a star that a friends boyfriend did when I was 17 (read: unhappy parents), and was supposed to be covered up as a stitched up heart with a blended black background. It looks like a three year old did it and I'm so over the heartbreak. ~Sarah
  •  
    It is supposed to be an alien head/skull with a flame surrounding it. I lived in Virginia and the guy who gave me the tattoo claimed he was a licensed tattoo artist in four states, offered to make a tattoo gun and give out tattoos. It was in my living room that I had it done, it is located on my right shoulder blade. ~Stephanie
  •  
    A cover-up of a bad friend tattoo that is supposed to be my business symbol. I drew up of a heart ball of yarn with a crochet hook in it. Got the cover-up about 2 months ago, got the K2 about a yr ago. On my left top foot. It hurt like hell to get it and its not like the drawing I made. and I can still see the K2 which is from a friendship that ended abruptly after 16 yrs!! I will always see that and be reminded of she ruined my life. ~Kristina
  •  
    I had the tattoo started back in 2004 and it was started by my brother. After he started the tattoo, I found out he was sleeping with my wife which is caused us to divorce. ~Vincent

    Grateful Dead - Steal your Skull with a "YinYin". I was 18, at a bike rally in the middle of a field in Southern Ohio. It was done by a half drunk biker in the back of a trailer. (the stuff was sterilized, and he wore gloves and stuff, but it was still a camper trailer in a field ... ) ~Mary

  •  
    The ink is on my hands and it is the first thing people notice when meeting me. I am a hard working father of three and I'm always telling my kids the regret of getting the tattoos on my hands. I am a fan of tattoos, but I've explained to them that I wish I would have waited till I was older. ~George
  •  
    It's of a girl crying with her makeup running. Because I was going through a lot in my life and it just reminds me of everything I went through. ~Katrina
  •  
    I was about 16 years old and like a idiot I went to a friend of a friend. And paid the perfect amount for what I Got which was bs for bs ($40). The tattoo is on my back between my shoulders, and it was done at his house and took 4 hrs to do. Worst mistake if my life. ~Linda
  •  
    Supposed to be a dragon. Got this done in 2003 and cannot remember where. It was that bad. An ex-bf has the same one, but mine looks like a big blob of just ink. Hard to make out what it is. ~Brandi
  •  
    a friend of a friend did this after my dad passed away. The wording is very meaningful to m, but he completely botched the tattoo. I HATE IT and need it removed badly. ~Rainie

    I got this piece of $hit and he got the prayer hands with rosary beads....all my treat, of course! MAJOR REGRET. Although he did let me drive his dropped bad a$$ truck that night! That was it. Its a big blurr of green and yellow and it embarresses my 11 year old daughter when her friends ask her what happend to my back because it looks like a huge bruise. ~Teanna
  •  
    I got it when I was 17. A guy I knew use to do em in prison. So he made a prison style tattoo kit. He did it dot by dot. I thought I was so badass. Hahahaha. ~Jeffrey
  •  
    A unicorn with 2 hearts and a dagger through a ribbon. Mine and my ex wifes name are on the ribbon although now her name is a blob of black because my current wife didn't care for it much. I was 16 when I got it. ~Juan

  •  
    A very bad decision ie sex. My buddies kitchen. It's embarrassing to me and others and it's not appropriate to be seen by children. ~Marvin
  •  
    Side of Calf. I got this tattoo in 1999 in remembrance of my cousin who died in the Texas A&M Bonfire collapse. I really meant well. But I looks terrible. The "12th Man" looks like it says "12th MOM", the thumbs up is all wrong and I DON'T even like Texas A&M!!! GET this UGLY thing off my leg, PLEASE!! Its terrible, it didn't turn how how I imagined it would and it is NOT not suitable for the professional envrionement. ~April
  •  
    It is a penis butterfly. Done in 2005 or 2006 in my friend's kitchen under the influence ... It's a penis butterfly and my daughter loves it. ~Melissa
  •  
    A big gangster cross. Got it 9 yrs ago when I was 20. I was at a bar with my then bf next to this tattoo shop & after some drinks I decided it was time to get a tattoo to represent my previous 2 miscarriages. It was supposed to be a small solid cross on the nape of my neck. I told the dude I wanted to be able to hide it with my hair down. He not only completely disregarded what I requested, but he took a random cross off his wall art & permanently branded me with it! Not only is it a horrendous tattoo, it hurt like......you don't even understand! ~Leslie
  •  
    It's a peach with rebel flag with Georgia written in it. I was 18 when I got it done took about 9 hours for the guy to do it. I got it because I was born in Georgia because it looks nothing like a peach or a rebel flag its hideous. ~Tiffany
  •  
    Prom night 1988, I got a "Down Boys" tattoo that I designed myself one afternoon during science class in school. Little did I know...The next year, I floated down the river with some bands, etc...There was a tattoo place during one of the float stops. I got mine re-lined & re-colored, etc...great weekend, it was the height of Warrant's time. Cut to, around 1995...and several rocker modeling jobs later (and whenever the opening of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas was) I moved to Vegas and went to the opening of that casino and stayed there for the opening week. I ended up getting my Warrant "Down Boys" tattoo covered up with an all black curly pointy tribal thing on the back of my shoulder. Finally got a job, but had to cover it up with bandages and excuses, etc...rotator cuff surgery, the excuses ran out, so I started on laser. After thousands of $$'s later, (it was still experimental at the time) it was barely making headway and I got wind of a "doctor" who I could speak to who could CUT OUT MY TATTOO and sew it back together like it wasn't even there. I did it, crying the whole time, he gave me a sob story about how he was adopted...and he was very old! I went back to the person who suggested this janky guy and THAT person said that he would do permanant makeup for FREE on my scar and cover up the leftover stuff too, becasue he felt bad. WELP! THAT did not work, it was discolored! ~Robin
  •  
    Celtic Knot-not sure what it means. I had it done, along with my ex-wife who has the same tattoo, in Clear Lake in 1999. Mine is on my right shoulder. My ex-wife has the same tattoo. My current wife HATES it!! ~Adam
  •  
    A bulls head that a bunch of us got after bull riding one night. Circa 1995 in Houston. It's a messed up blob. ~Jason

    It's supposed to be a fairy sitting on a rose I had just turned 19 and decided I wanted to get my first tattoo. My ex boyfriend took me to a little tattoo shop in Pasadena off of Pasadena blvd and beltway 8. Not researching the artist... Huge mistake. ~James
  •  
    Confederate butterfly. This tattoo was done in Bay City at a shop that is no longer in business. I got it done in 2004. Because its awkwardly hideous. ~Chirstina

  •  
    Playboy bunny . Got it the day of my 18th birthday. It is very unprofessional. ~Alicia
  •  
    It's suppose to say Stacie. It was about five years ago in a buddies house that did really good work. I didn't have to pay him cash - only a 12 pack. Needless to say his work is shitty when he drinks the 12 pack while giving me my tattoo. The tattoo is suppose to say Stacie, my wife's name, it clearly doesn't say it. I don't regret it because it had a great purpose, I just wanna have my wife's name done right. ~Nic
  •  
    I got this tattoo 4 years ago by my ex-girl friend who was a tattoo artist. She hated my tribal tattoo with a wolf head in the middle (kind of looked like a Thundercats logo). She had been hounding me to let her cover it up, she assured me that she could do the cover-up. We got started and when she finished the outline; she told me that she could not cover the tribal?? Why even start it if you cannot even finish the job? The funny thing is, I went to my sister’s house a few months ago and I saw my brother in law wearing a t-shirt that he got at Wal-Mart with the same design on my arm, minus the tribal the ex could not cover. I have tried Wrecking Balm & I have tried cutting it out with a knife little bit at a time. I truly want this tattoo off of me. ~Kenneth C.
  •  
    It was done by an amateur that didn't know what he was doing. It was suppose to be small but came out too big, thick and all uneven. It's really embarrassing to wear my hair up cause thats the first thing people stare at. Please Help! ~Lisa
