We all make mistakes. Sometimes things happen to us outside our realm of control, sometimes we’re just young and dumb. What matters is what we do after those mistakes are made. Do you wallow in self-loathing or pick yourself up by your boot straps and make things right?
These people decided to do something about their mistakes. Tired of their poor tattoos, they decided to transform their shameful designs into something much more badass than ever before. The people featured in this gallery prove that you’re not permanently stuck with tattoos you don’t want. At any point in time you can transform horrifically bad tattoos, like the ones found in our recent bad tattoos gallery, into some of the most badass tattoos anyone has ever seen.
Covering up a bad tattoo can actually be a fun pastime for some artists. The challenge of taking something that’s already been done and turning it into something better, proving themselves the superior artist, excites many artists – especially the ones who grew up playing Morph as kids.
What’s Morph? Morph is an art game where one person draws an image and then another changes the image into something else. This goes on until someone runs out of ideas or draws something that was drawn before. The game goes by many names but it’s essentially practice for the type of tattoos you’ll see in the gallery below.
Got a bad tattoo and want some ideas for a nice cover up? Hopefully this gallery will help you discover the inspiration you’re looking for, and give anyone hope that there are brighter days on the horizon.
