These 15 hysterically bad tattoos have us thinking "Thank goodness for laser tattoo removal."

We generally try not to laugh at other people's misfortune, but seriously!? We've rounded up a list of tattoo fails that show us three things:

  1. You shouldn't get a tattoo when you're drunk.
  2. You really shouldn't get a tattoo when the artist is drunk.
  3. Tattoo needles should come with a spell check and dose of common sense.

1. Most people have issues with "their" vs. "there" vs. "they're," but this is a new one!
