I think that guys artistry, and the fact he did it on the house, qualifies more for a Hero tag than Sappy. Really good work.

roc6783: Ordinary Genius: jfivealive: He really did a good job with the shading on her upper lip

Supposedly, it took him three hours.

Dammit, I knew that sounded familiar.  You both win.


Well, I'd say we're pretty much friends by now, right?

I'm not a big fan of tats, but like everyone else has said, big ups to the artist!

MadAzza: kroonermanblack:

Well you'd have to! I couldn't imagine having something the size of a carrot or squash shoved down my urethra for fun and pleasure!

I can't, either. We don't pee out of our vaginas, sir. And I'm not shoving anything up my pee place.


Yes. That's the joke. Glad you were here to correct me.

I am sure I am in the minority, but I never saw the original as "worst."

Image 18 or 20, the chick has had a giant demonic vagina tatooed on her chest.  Why?  I need an explanation for this.


He is a great tattoo artist, but man do people have some dumb tattoos.

bbcard1: I am sure I am in the minority, but I never saw the original as "worst."


Yes, you are in the minority. I would call it "worst" not solely because of the art (which is terribad) but also because of the backstory. Not the worst ever perhaps, but way down there.

lilplatinum: homelessdude: phlegmmo: Awesome transformation.  Kudos to the artist.

Yep....that is some serious cleanup there. I doubt much better could be done.

You could remove the tattoo..


Bingo.

Nice job - she went from a hideous white woman to an attractive black woman.

Such a shame that the artist could to nothing to cover up the unfortunate older tat at the bottom. Messes up a perfectly nice homage.

Having a tattoo of what your recently deceased wife will look like when she rises from the dead to eat your brains if kind of the "worst".

IRQ12: bbcard1: I am sure I am in the minority, but I never saw the original as "worst."

Yep, it was supposed to be a tribute to his departed wife, and the mother of his children. The artist butchered it. The guy thought HE messed it up, went back, and the artist butchered it further. The artist should never have taken the job if they didn't know what they were doing, stick to the wall art stencils.

Mr. Cool Ice, like i said earlier, is NOT a bad tattoo. Its what the customer wanted, the artist did a competent job in its technical stand point. And the dude was happy and proud of the work, even after gaining loads of internet notoriety for it, maybe even more so.

Granted, the subject matter looked like something a 12year old would doodle in the margins of their homework that was the most awesome thing EVA!!1! But, its a good tattoo in spite of that.

Cat guys full body tattoo? Not a bad tattoo either, that was his thing and he made his living as a performer with that look, also snake guy. Or the great enigma. The world famous tattooed man.

Bad tats are ones that started with good intentions and turned out horribly

85blue: People who say say it doesn't hurt are lying


The one's on my shoulders really weren't painful at all, just annoying, and some small areas on my calves were the same. The rest ranged from "Ok, that's aggravating but tolerable" (most of my back) to "Jesus fark, get done with that spot quick before I punch you in the head" (back of my knees).

kroonermanblack: I still want a new tattoo damnit. Are there any colorful styles out there that aren't 'totally brotastic tribal broseph' level without also being effeminate and/or gay?


If you live on Long Island, I can highly recommend Studio 69 tattoo.  They fixed my 20-year-old disaster:

Too bad the black won't stay that deep once it's fully healed.  Looks awesome though...

I think the fixed tat from TFA looks like someone threw on a sepia tone in Instagram.

It IS a significant improvement. I just don't dig sepia.

I wasn't trying to call you a puss or anything like that, I was just saying that "it's always going to hurt" isn't necessarily true. It's likely going to hurt, but depending on the location and your pain tolerance the pain can go from 0-10 on the same person. Hell, I've got a big one going from above my knee down to may ankle and that one tat went from .1 to 8.5.
