Tattoos: The Best And The Worst – Part 1

I saw a pretty gnarly tattoo yesterday in Trader Joe’s which made me wonder what could be found on the internet (in the way of tattoos). I’ve posted the highlights of what I found below. Anyone have any other contributions of wild tattoos, over the top tattoos, crazy tattoos, insane tattoos, stupid tattoos, awful tattoos, etc.?

This guy’s never going to get laid…


The claim is that this is the world’s most tattooed man…


Dennis Smith is tattooed from head to toe with orange and black stripes and his teeth have been filed to needle point.

He has also had latex whiskers implanted and surgery to his lips so he has a permanent snarl. He now wants a surgeon to graft tiger fur on to his skin, like a perma-wig.

Mr Smith, who has changed his name by deed poll to Cat Man, said: “I have a collection of old tiger pelts from the days of hunting. I want these grafted on to me. It will cost another $100,000 but will be worth it. When I have the coat of a tiger, I feel I will have reached my goal in life.”

His fingernails have been crafted into sharp talons while his hands have tattooed markings like a tiger’s paws. He says he feels like a tiger.”

You may be wondering how this guy has managed to pay for all of this surgery. Well, this guy holds down a “$128,000-a-year computer programming” job.



Viva Las Vegas, baby…


I’d love to get my picture taken with this chick…


Jesus Christ. I guess the tip of this guy’s schlong is the dragon’s head? Pretty clever actually…


Apparently not a Microsoft fan. The blue screen of death…


Might be interesting to hang out with this guy…

Really bad tattoo

Not sure if this is a commentary about Africa and the Middle East or not…


Eye tattoo? Fuck that. I couldn’t even put contacts in…


Eye tattooing: Yes, this is over the top…


Words fail me…



This chick is pretty confident. I’m not convinced her confidence is justified though.

A bad tattoo for a girl

UV ink! Pretty cool…

UV tattoos

And yet another black light tattoo…


If I get a tattoo, this will be my first one…


Or maybe this one:


Girls, you can get one as well:

best tattoos

Nothing really over the top about this tattoo, I just thought it looked cool…


Same with this one (and I like the dog in the picture)…

cool tattoo

This one isn’t too bad either (I’m not saying that I would get it, just that I can appreciate it)…

full back tattoos

I like the texture created in this tattoo:

good guy tattoo

And I’m not normally a fan of flower tattoos, but…

flower tattoos

rose tattoos

tattoo with flowers

As if one didn’t already have enough good reasons to join the Yakuza…




Metal implants. Not a tattoo, but still a little over the top…


OK, and I know this is paint, but how awesome (in an over the top way) would this be if it were a tattoo?

awesome face paint

Not a wild tattoo, but a creative use of the space…


Another creative use of space:

shark amputation tattoo

With some additional experimentation, and individuals willing to serve as the canvas for that experimentation, I think 3D tattoos could be a very interesting segment for future growth in the tattoo field – as these pioneering examples demonstrate:

Three dimensional tattoo

3D tattoo

Who would get this for a tattoo? Further validation of my bias against the South…


Fictional tattoos, but tattoos that I felt were cool enough to merit inclusion:

cartoon tattoo

fictional tattoo

Pretty decent ink job. Must’ve hurt to get it all along his ribs like that…


I would imagine the same holds true for this one:

extreme side tattoo

I thought these tattoos looked pretty cool as well…

great tattoo of a face


A good tattoo design


A creative tattoo

A quality tattoo

skeleton tattoo

I’m not sure if I like it or not, but it is unique…

scissors tattoo

Not a bad one for Halloween:

Arm tattoo

Any Spiderman fans in the audience?


Or Wolverine Fans?

Wolverine tattoo

There have to be some Goonies fans…

Goonies Sloth Tattoo

OK, I’ll try to end this on a somewhat positive note:

  6. The girl with the scissor tattoo looks like she didn’t know what to do with her arm and just covered it entirely with black ink. I’m guessing the scissors are because she has cuts all over her body. I kinda think the scars look cooler than the randomness of her tattoos. Awesome post…Weird tattoos.
