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..."

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.

Many people value solitude, and having time to themselves.

For others though, loneliness can be a crippling feeling.

Having no one to talk to or spend time with can get wearying after an extended amount of time.

Something many people know more than ever after the global pandemic hit in spring of 2020.

But while some people simply succumb to being lonely, others will find ways to help them cope with, if not completely forget, being all alone.

Redditor No_Blackberry_6286 was curious to hear the different ways people have of coping with their loneliness, leading them to ask:

"Reddit, how do you cope with loneliness?"

In this day and age of advancement, it's crazy how so many things leave our heads scratching.

Like how in 2022 is such and such still around?

Everyone in New York wondered that for the past decade until they took the final payphone.

I always wonder about companies that still make you send a fax.

Y'all have heard of email right?

"It’s 2022, what shouldn’t exist now?"

It's PRIDE month. It's time to be loud and proud.

Well, every minute of everyday we should be loud and proud.

But this month gives you an extra special buzz.

So in the spirit of learning, we will be taking questions from the class.

I know cisgender straight people still have a lot they don't understand.

What do you need to know?

Redditorhre_nftwanted everyone to feel comfortable enough to be as aloud what they've been waiting to ask a queer person. Safe space for all. They asked:

"What question have you always wanted to ask LGBTQ+ people but didn’t because you don’t want to offend them?"
