Tattoo Artists Share Which Designs They Knew The Customer Would Regret

Tattoo artists devise all sorts of designs and then leave their marks on countless people who will hopefully not regret what they decided to have printed on their skin.

But what if the tattoo artist knows they're about to make a mistake?

This was the inspiration behind today's burning question from Redditor colorfularchipelago, who asked: "Tattoo artists - what tattoo have you given that you knew the customer would regret?"


"Guy came in..."

Giphy

Guy came in and wanted his SO's eyes under his belly button.. just above his d*ck. I asked -Are you sure cuz it's gonna look pretty weird.. -Yeah yeah I'm sure!!

Said and done we finished it. He was really into it and thought it was funny because "now she can look into her own eyes when huhu huhu she gives me head huhuh uhh".. and "


Met the guy a couple of weeks later and asked how SHE thought about it..

-Aahh you know we broke up..

Stay away from funny tattoos. That sh*t gets old pretty quick.

I also did "insert coins here" above a dudes massive butt crack.

"I once gave..."

I once gave this fat Australian dude with a neckbeard a pewdiepie tattoo on his butt. His friends were filming which was weird.

"Names of a gf or bf..."

Names of a gf or bf. All white tattoos... Ugghh. Believe it or not, I'm very direct with clients and honest. Most of the time they pump the brakes and rethink the tattoo. I help them find a better idea and they thank me for talking them out of it. Sometimes I do it anyway knowing this provides some job security. Lol.

"I used to be a tattoo artist..."

I used to be a tattoo artist and will never forget a client coming in with her John, dropping trou while he loudly stated he wanted her to get 'RICK'S B!TCH' in bold arial, one word per cheek.

And she actually did it.

Best tattoo though? The tattoo I gave my then courting boyfriend to remind himself he was worth continuing to grow as a person. We've been married for almost 8 years now. No regrets.

"As stated before..."

As stated before: no names (unless the person/band is dead, is related by blood/a child, or is a pet- we understand those).

Always try to convince the clients to think of something that represents that name, just in case something happens.

A personal rule that I share with a lot of artists: if you do not have full sleeves, then you're not getting your hands done, period. You can cry and go to another shop, that's fine. Throat/neck/head is even more strict and is honestly done on a person by person case.

"Once gave..."

Once gave an American guy a Mike Tyson style tattoo around his eye while he was hiding from a riot he started.

Yeahboiiii_

"There was this tattoo artist..."

There was this tattoo artist, he made an eyeball on a man's anus. He after that told me not to ask for "ass" tattoos.

"Not a tattoo artist..."

Not a tattoo artist, but my husband's cousin got a tattoo on her upper thigh that says "stab me harder, Daddy." Her intention, I think, was to refer to him stabbing her in the back because she has a sh!tty father, but the wording and where she placed it, I think is going to be taken wrong by a lot of people.

"Not an artist..."

Not an artist, but I have enough chair time to have heard some stories. My favorite by far would be my artist Jeff, who told me a story from about 10 years ago. Apparently, this guy wants a Chinese letter tattooed on his forehead. Jeff tells him no, the guy insists, and Jeff tells him if he still wants it in a week he would do it. Guy comes back a week later, Jeff does the tattoo. 3 weeks later the guy comes back in, and asked if you can get a dragonfly down across the bridge of his nose with the wings going out under his eyes. Jeff tells him to get the F out.

"My tattoo artist..."

My tattoo artist refused to do a tat on a kid who had just turned 18. The kid wanted the word SUICIDE, in black, 3" high letters, across his abdomen. The kid was pissed. My tattoo artist told him to go home and grow up.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
