lotr tattoo fail

Getting a fandom based tattoo is awesome. Having a screwed up one though? Few things are more sad or more uh, permanent. Pedro’s pal Aguirre likes Lord of the Rings and got the One Ring around his arm, but no one noticed it was upside down. Oops. It’s an unfortunate mistake Aguirre will have to live with or get covered up and transformed into something else. Even if the tattoo artist offered to redo it free of charge, I don’t know that I’d trust him or her. Sauron wins this one!

zombie apocalypse back tatt

When your online handle is “Zomboner”, it makes sense that you’d commit 53 hours of time to a back tattoo of the zombie apocalypse in blood dripping, flesh eating detail. This is some serious ink and was done over the span of a year. I personally love the perspective on it.

I’m pretty sure this is the sort of ink that gets to be real fun in the summer time when you’re in a concert crowd or something. I wonder if he ever walks backwards without his shirt on just to freak people out.

breaking bad tattoo

Of course, we mean Blue Sky candy.

Walter White has never looked so… permanent. This badass Breaking Bad tattoo belongs to a fan. Actor Aaron Paul posted the picture on Instagram, and I can’t get over the details and the shading. Every wrinkle, every fold in the fabric, and every crystal looks perfectly inked. I bet the tattoo cost a roll of dollars just like the one in the image.

Getting a tattoo of someone else’s face is a bold decision, and one that I’ll never quite understand. This guy made the ultimate commitment and got his lady Jennifer’s face tattooed on his arm. Unfortunately, things didn’t last. It’s sort of big to be removed, so he just got it transformed into a shrouded skull. Like you do.

Our guess is that the breakup was messy.
