Tattoos are a personal choice.

As a result, many people choose tattoos which have a special meaning to them, such as the name of their beloved, or an image or symbol sacred to them

It's also easy for people to judge what others choose to have inked on their body.

With certain types of tattoos almost instantly resulting in the immediate cringes of others.


Redditor saxonn_88 was eager to learn which tattoos people find to be the most insufferable, leading them to ask:
"Which type of tattoo makes you cringe the most?"

To Infinity And Beyond...

"Former tattoo artist here, and it has to be infinity symbols."

"ESPECIALLY when they want them to be 'uNiQuE', so they have you spend three hours drawing up different ways of cramming little McKayzleigh and Brackxston’s names, birthdates, birth weights, blood types, and favorite ice cream flavors in there."

"Fine, I’ll find a way."

"I can work for my money."

'"Oh, and can it also have a thin blue line in there for my husband?'"

"Sure, lady."

“And maybe some birds breaking off of it, cause my meemaw loves birds!”

"Sighhhh. Yeah, okay."

“'And can you do it on the side of my finger in white ink?'”

"Sayings, especially ones that span multiple limbs/areas."

"I was in the Army with a guy from Texas that thought he was hard as woodpecker lips."

"Had ‘Cowboy The F*ck Up’ tattooed across his forearms."

"Ostensibly so if he put his fists up to fight you, you would read it and, I don’t know, be scared or something?"

"He never got in any fights that I know of."

" But due to the size he wanted it and sh*tty planning, one arm said COWBOY THE and the other arm simply read F*CK UP."

"And he immediately became known as Cowboy, the f*ck-up."- RistaRicky

Anyone considering getting a tattoo should always remember that they're all but permanent.

As far too many people are sadly stuck with a reminder of a past bad decision which greets them every time they look in a mirror.

And often on display for the rest of the world to see as well.

Everyone in life has a bully or six to face.

Even the bullies have bullies.

And sometimes the bully is in the mirror.

Now I know we're supposed to only use our words when standing up to our bullies.

But that is not always the most ideal form of defense.

Words can work.

Sometimes words can cut like knives leading us to victory.

And sometimes words aren't sufficient as we've learned from Reddit.

Whether it's being part of a congregation or an academic sports team, communities are important because they allow people to have a sense of purpose and belonging.

While some may prefer having their own space, eventually, they'll want to have some sort of interaction with others.

But when there isn't a group representing like-minded people, those feeling dejected and isolated find each other to form their own communities.

However, there are some groups that are comprised of bitter individuals and engage in activities with nefarious intentions under the guise of fellowship.

We've all been faced with tough decisions at least once in our life.

In some cases, we've had time to think very carefully as to what we decide to do, a few days, weeks, or even months or years, and thus felt confident and happy with the decision we made.

In other cases, however, we might not have had the luxury of time, and had to make a decision in the blink of an eye.

More often than not, it's these split-second, sometimes impulsive decisions, which might end up drastically changing our lives.

Sometimes for the better, and sometimes not.

When men are hoping to impress a woman, they often agonize over the perfect thing to say.

Something which will get their attention and make them feel good about themselves, and hopefully not offend or demean them.

If they find the right words, they may likely find themselves with a new girlfriend, future wife, or even a life-long friend.

After all, finding the perfect compliment can go a long way.

Of course, this is a two-way street, and men also enjoy it when they are complimented.

Perhaps even more, and arguably, a little too much.
