16 Horrible Tattoo Fails That Got The Fix That They Deserved

Diply 24 Nov 2017

I am absolutely terrified to get myself inked, mostly because I'm worried that I will end up with a failed design that I'll be stuck with for the rest of my life.

However, looking at some of these fixes gives me hope that anything can be covered up.

Sorry, Mom and Dad!

1. Take your seahorse look from day to night.

Just do a little bit of contouring, and even you can take your look to the next level. Maybe add some glitter to really make yourself shine.

7. That retouched cupcake looks so good that I may or may not take a bite. And so begins my journey into cannibalism.

It just looks so inviting...maybe one little taste! No? Still creepy? Fine. I'll just drag myself to a bakery, then.

8. If you regret putting your ex's name on your body, and there's some way to turn it into a Simpsons character, do it.

Who doesn't love The Simpsons? And why wouldn't you want to put a sexy picture of Marge on your body to replace your ex?

9. Can't think of another design to cover your old tattoo? Just paint over it. Literally. With a teeny tiny painter.

Just be honest with yourself (and everybody else) that your original tattoo wasn't cutting it and needed a fresh coat.
