Artist Spotlight – Tyler Malek

tyler malek  @tylermalek 5

If you search for Tyler Malek’s tattooing background, you won’t find much. Even the studio he tattoos in, Underworld Tattoo Company, doesn’t have an official website or background information. That being said, take one look at his work and you’ll know everything you need. Tyler’s an incredibly talented tattoo artist that specializes realism designs but, as you can see from the bird tattoo, he’s no stranger to colorful illustrative tattoos too. He’s one of those artists who can and will tattoo in a variety of styles. If you get a chance to get a tattoo from Tyler at Underworld Tattoo Company in Salem, New Hampshire then don’t pass up on the opportunity.

Artist Spotlight – Adam Aguas

Adam Aguas @adamaguastattoos 7

Bro, Your Tattoo Looks Like Shit

Screen shot 2016-07-13 at 12.04.50 PM

You can’t always stop your friends from making bad decisions, but you CAN tell them when they’ve made one. We like to think of ourselves as friends to all tattoo enthusiasts around the world, which is why we’re being brutally honest and letting each of the people in the pictures below know that their tattoos are absolutely terrible. Seriously, did you tattoo yourself? Did a five-year-old draw your tattoo? (If that is the case, then some of these are actually impressive.) Don’t worry. If you’re one of the poor souls in these pictures, (or have something similar!), there’s still time to have a real tattoo artist cover your bad tattoos with a better design. Read More »

These Piercings Don’t Look Healthy…

9

If your piercing looks even remotely like the ones shown in the gallery below, you’ve done fucked up! We don’t know for sure, but we’re willing to bet most of these – if not all of them – are do-it-yourself piercing jobs gone horribly wrong. There’s a reason people pay professionals to do their body modifications for them, and it’s not because they’re “suckers” or have more money than they know what to do with. It’s because they know just how unhealthy poorly done body modifications can be. Modern medicine has come a long way, but it still can’t fix utter stupidity. If you get poor tattoos and/or piercings and don’t take care of them properly, you can seriously impact your health in a permanent negative manner. You could even risk fatality! (That means death.) Don’t end up like one of the morons in the pictures below. Make sure you get all your body modifications professionally done and conduct all aftercare appropriately. After all, your life can wind up in the balance. Read More »

WHY????!

5

We’re not sure why you all like bad tattoos so much, but we got another batch of terrible tattoos to show off. These tattoos are so bad that we can’t fathom what these people could possibly have been thinking when they decided to get them. Keep sharing bad tattoos with us and we’ll keep showing them off, but please don’t get bad tattoos just for a few minutes of attention on the internet. There are less painful, costly and permanent ways to get a few minutes of attention on the internet. And don’t let your friends get tattoos like this just so you can point and laugh. Read More »

Artist Spotlight – Eugene Knysh

Eugene Knysh @levgen_eugeneknysh 10

Eugene Knysh, also known as Levgen, has been tattooing for almost a decade and comes from a self-taught background that not many people can boast. He’s never attended a single art class or any sort of formal school for tattooing. He simply started drawing on paper one day because he felt like it, went on to graffiti art and eventually met a friend at university who was tattooing at the time and decided to get into it. He specializes in colorful realism tattoos and has already made a name for himself for good reason. If you get a chance to be tattooed by Levgen, we highly suggest you take advantage of the opportunity.

13 Regrettable Funny Fails

12

These tattoos are so full of fail that a few of them are bound to make you laugh out loud. These are the type of tattoo fails people usually tell stories about, with spelling mistakes and all. (One of them even tried to correct their mistake with small print, like they were correcting a written essay!) We’re not sure whether the artist or the person getting the tattoo messed up here, but something clearly went wrong during the creation of each of these tattoos. Don’t wind up like one of these people and make sure you properly plan out your tattoo design with a professional artist before ink starts to be applied. Read More »

Clever or Ridiculous?

4

There’s a fine line between genius and insanity, and some of these people may have erased that line. (Brownie points for those of you who get that reference.) Seriously though, many of the tattoos featured in the gallery below stand on the line between genius and insanity, and we can’t figure out which side they stand more on. On one hand, they’re impressive, on the other, we’re not sure they’re good tattoos. We’ll let you decide which is which. We’re sure you’ll have plenty of questions by the time you’ve made your way through all of the images, but maybe you’ll walk away with new tattoo inspiration too. Read More »

Unsanitary – Friends Don’t Let Friends Get Tattooed At Home

8

“I know this guy who’s a GREAT artist and has his own tattoo kit! He’ll do it for a lot less!” If someone says these words to you, politely decline and stick with getting your tattoo from a studio-based professional. We’ll grant you that some of the professionals we’ve shown off in our galleries and spotlight posts got their start in kitchens and living rooms, but the fact is that they’re the exception to the rule. The rule being: NEVER GET A TATTOO FROM SOMEONE IN THEIR, OR YOUR, HOME! Seriously, do we really have to point out how unsanitary and how much of a bad idea it is to get amateur hour tattoos? You get what you pay for, and we don’t recommend you put that saying to the test where your health is involved. Read More »

#TattoosGoneBad

9

What’s worse? A tattoo that was clearly a bad idea from the onset or a good idea that’s been executed poorly? We can see how these tattoos might have been a good idea at one point in time, before they went horribly wrong and ended up the monstrosities you see now. Okay, maybe they all weren’t great ideas, but a good artist can make even the worst tattoo ideas look good. Please use these terrible tattoos as examples of what not to do. Friends don’t let friends get tattoos that are this shitty. Read More »

Artist Spotlight – Erik Campbell

@Erik_ez_campbell 5

Erik Campbell started tattooing as an apprentice under Matt Jones in 2002 and has been tattooing in Colorado for over a decade. He tends to design illustrative new school-like tattoos but, as you’ll see in the gallery below, is no stranger to a myriad of styles and can proficiently create black-and-grey realism tattoos just as well as colorful new school tats too. He currently tattoos out of The Raw Canvas in Grand Junction, Colorado alongside a team of other extremely talented artists. His primary goal in life is to continue to grow as an artist and he clearly has a wonderful future ahead of him.
