Question of the Day: Ugliest Tattoo Ever

What's the ugliest tattoo you've ever seen?

Tattoos may be fugly for a number of reasons: maybe the tattoo artist is cross-eyed, maybe the chosen image is in poor taste, or maybe the canvas is just a little "rough."

Whatever the reason for a jacked tattoo, you can't help but shed a tear for its owner; removing a bad branding is a painful process that costs a pretty penny.

Our question of the day is: What's the ugliest tattoo you've ever seen? 

Tell us in the comments below.

i think you need to re-read the comment on facebook about this "question of the day". it is pretty offensive

I dont like ed hardy full chest tattoos, but my friend has a full color pheonix on her arm that's absolutely beautiful and fits her perfectly, in my opinion. What kind of tattoos do you like?

"Northport Patch - Gigantic Ed-Hardy style chest tattoos used to be en vogue among twenty-thirty something women for a while. I once saw a girl with the word "Heartbreaker" written from shoulder to shoulder with sparrows on either side. Funny thing was, she didn't look like a heartbreaker. Mirror-breaker, maybe." the offensive part is about "mirror-breaker"

I'm not quite sure what this "news clip" has to do with the local community...

I thought she was ugly, Scamp. My opinion. Sorry if it offends you. I'm allowed to have one.

The question of the day is a way to let the community have their say on things that anyone in general may have an opinion on. Some people in Northport have tattoos. There's also a large artist community here and probably some tattoo artists as well.

The question of the day is an opinion forum on heavy or light issues in the community. It might even be whimsical. I asked this question mostly for fun, but also because I know there is an established artist community in Northport, including tattoo artists, and I thought they might want to weigh in.

"The question of the day is a way to let the community have their say on things that anyone in general may have an opinion on. Some people in Northport have tattoos. There's also a large artist community here and probably some tattoo artists as well." Please do not tell me about the community...do you live here? Is the picture of a woman who lives here? Your "article" is about tattoos but then goes on to comment about a physical appearance in an offensive judgmental way...my opinion!
Leah Bush (Editor) August 14, 2011 at 02:53 AM
That woman doesn't live here FYI and I think I should clarify that this isn't an article- it's a question. And, yes, I was judging.

The identity of an individual is often easily ascertained by his/her tattoo. Since you are a "writer" for Northport Patch, you should be aware that Northport is, after all, nothing if not a small town. How would one feel if a daughter or son, or perhaps a mother or father (or oneself) was referred to as having the ugliest tattoo ever? I believe this website should restrict itself to kinder, more thoughtful content. And yes, Northport is an artistic community. So the question begs itself: WHY NOT ASK THE MOST BEAUTIFUL TATTOO YOU'VE EVER SEEN RATHER THAN THE UGLIEST? Come on, Patch. You can/should do better.

I like to read the Northport patch but this opinion article was too negative for my taste.

My mother always told me if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all leah, don't take down my posts unless you re-tract your rude, offensive and judging ones

lighten up!!!!! If you get a tatoo you are making a statement and leave yourself open to comments -- the good the bad and yeah it may be ugly.

I saw the tattoo on the forearm of a concentration camp survivor. Its ugliness was born of hatred. It made me very sad until I talked to him and saw what a happy man he was.
Leah Bush (Editor) August 17, 2011 at 05:08 AM
I'm happy to see such an insightful response, Kady. In this case, the tattoo was indeed a "branding" imposed by a fanatical regime that sought to cull an "us" from a "them." I can't imagine the unspeakable uncertainty and hopelessness that befell that man when the needle was put to his skin.
