Crazy Face Tattoos That People Will Surly Regret In The FutureBy Barbara Norris
Everyone has their own views on what constitutes art and beauty. Spa treatments, botox, fillers, and even plastic surgery are becoming so common that we’re all quite used to seeing augmented faces. However, some people still manage to stun with the way they alter their faces. The people you’re about to meet have made their mark on the world (and their faces) by getting crazy tattoos in the one place you can never really hide.
Though it is possible in the modern world to remove tattoos, the process is difficult, painful, and not suitable for all tattoo types or locations. On top of this, the tattoos are never fully erased. A trace of them always remains, which is why many of the people you’re about to meet wish they thought more carefully about filling their faces with ink. Now, there’s little else they can do but save up for laser tattoo removal and offer their stories as cautionary tales. Read on to discover what the world’s craziest face tattoos look like.
A Devout Believer
This dude attends church services every Sunday with his family, reads the Bible, and regularly shares God’s word. He has even served as a missionary. Can you imagine what you would do if he appeared on your doorstep?
Would you welcome this man to your Bible study group? However much we respect his earnestness, we don’t comprehend why he needed to decorate his face to such an extent. It looks like he fell asleep at a party and had someone take to his face with colored markers, but alas, this is a far more permanent mess.
The Real Spiderman
Prepare yourself for a battle between two hunters – man versus wild. On the extreme right is a Black Widow Spider. Its legs resemble a skeleton’s knuckles. This creature is equipped with deadly venom. Casualties report extreme muscle torment, squeezing, and trouble relaxing.
The man appears to have strolled straight into the spider’s snare. Can you imagine walking around with this on your face for the rest of your life? You’d never be able to relax!
Drake’s Boldest Fan
We don’t know who doesn’t love music. Some fans show support for their favorite singers through Spotify, while others feel the urge to make a more extreme gesture. Take this Drake fan for example.
It clearly wasn’t fulfilling enough for this lady to start up a discussion with other Drake fans. Nor was it enough for her to simply listen to the rapper’s music non-stop. She felt that she needed to make her feelings known to everyone she meets before they’ve even had a chance to say “hi.”
Any Clue for Blue?
Assuming you’re a 90s kid, you would recognize the Nickelodeon show Blue’s Clues. In every episode, you would go on a secret chase to discover his paw prints and sort everything out to translate Blue’s message.
This guy’s face apparently presents our first clue. However, one look and it’s clear that this isn’t a game we want to keep playing as adults! You can keep your clues, buddy.
This guy took the concept of being a wallflower far too literally. Not content with simply leaning against the wall to avoid conversations at parties, he decided to get his face tattooed in a way that would help him blend in.
To be fair, his tattoo artist has clearly worked really hard on all those intricate designs. The work doesn’t look bad, it’s just more the type of thing you’d expect to see on a high school kid’s notebook rather than someone’s face.
A Galaxy of Regret
Quite possibly the most mainstream tattoo design you could ever choose is a star. They are not difficult to draw and they take little imagination. If you end up regretting having a tattoo done, you can conceal little stars pretty easily with make-up; unless you go over the top, that is.
This kid was so keen on stars she had a whole galaxy tattooed on the left side of her face. Her dad was understandably furious. Apparently, it took her four years and more than $13,000 to have them all removed. Ouch!
If You Can’t Grow It, Tattoo It
Some men grow beards to make a good impression on potential partners. A good beard outlines the face, disguises blemishes, and creates a strong-looking facial structure. It’s a method of creating a sense of physical and social strength.
Wanting to participate in the craze, this man took a shortcut by having a mustache inked on his face. Instead of growing a real one, which is painless and free of charge, he chose a fake mustache. Unfortunately, the needle did a horrendous job compared to what nature could’ve done if he’d given it time!
Rapper Gucci Mane rose to stardom during the early 2000s. With an estimated net worth of $12 million, he can afford a luxury lifestyle. Oddly enough, that seems to include having a frozen treat inked on his right cheek.
There have been a few speculations about this design. Some say that it speaks to his cool lifestyle. Others claim that it’s a bold but ultimately meaningless move to attract attention. If he believed that an ice cream cone could make him more popular, he was sadly mistaken.
Never Forget Your Glasses Again
A couple of problems with wearing eyeglasses are that they may fall off when you bend over, or you may break them if you’re not careful with where you put them. This man came up with an answer for these issues.
We wonder how the scanners at airports handle this face tattoo. Usually, if you wear glasses, you’re asked to take them off to have your face scanned as you go through customs. This man would surely mess up the system!
For women to be alluring, they have to be youthful, at least according to the ridiculous beauty standards pushed in the media and on social media. Many women spend thousands of dollars on all sorts of creams, pills, potions, and treatments to live up to these impossible ideals. This grandmother has a different solution for you.
To hide her wrinkles and droopy skin (forever), she had someone let loose on her with a tattoo gun. We can tell that she saves a lot of time and energy because she wouldn’t even need to clean her face let alone bother with a beauty routine.
Apparently, this guy is all about Hello Kitty. However, he is hardly the type of character you’d expect to see watching such a show!
With this design permanently inked on his forehead, it’s safe to say that this guy never really outgrew his childhood. Is that supposed to be Pacman on his neck?
This lady clearly loves tigers. We do agree with her sentiments. Tigers are incredible animals, and we wish there were more of them out in the wild.
However, none of us would go as far as having a tiger tattooed on our face! She can, at least, utilize her curly hair to cover that hunter on her cheek.
The Aspiring Spartan
From the look on his face, this man clearly sees himself as a warrior. He went to a tat shop and asked for the outline of a Corinthian helmet to be tattooed on his face. The result is pretty wild.
Whatever you think of this tattoo design, you have to admit, this man is capable of sitting through a whole lot of pain. All that blackwork on your skull would not be easy!
This man knew that one effective way to draw in ladies is to don a casual, smart look. After a few tries, he finally tracked down the ideal balance and made it look so easy.
When he got his first face tattoo, he knew something was lacking. When he ran his fingers over his face he realized it required texture. So, he complemented each tattoo with a piercing. He’s a firm believer in “the more, the merrier” when it comes to accessories.
Not a Loyal Fan
This person is clearly unsettled which explains why he has so many flags all over his face. He’s fast to lose faith in his team, supporting one football team one match, then swapping sides the next.
Then again, he could just be realizing that we’re all on “team human.” Why support one team over another? Instead, be like this man and make your face a colorful tribute to the human race.
Can You Figure This One Out?
We have no idea what the original intention was with this face tattoo. Is it supposed to be religious? Is it to do with magic? We’ll probably never know.
It looks like that’s meant to be a star in the middle of her forehead, but those dots look more like something you’d see around a crop circle. The photo appears to be a mugshot, so all we can say is that we hope things got better for her from here.
This man wanted to create the impression that he’s more machine than man. So, he added a new face tattoo to his collection. The results speak for themselves.
With a face like this, you’d hope that he works as a mechanic. At the very least, he’d want to know his way around a car. Can you imagine how embarrassing it would be taking your car to the mechanic and not having a clue about what might be wrong with it if you had a face like this?
In Full Bloom
This lady was an adorable child. Family friends would squeeze her adorable, plump cheeks. Some would give her treats and coo at her. What a dazzling young lady! Such a sweetie!
Here’s an image of her only a few weeks after her sixteenth birthday celebration. A red rose in full bloom! She now draws even more attention thanks to the eye-catching tattoo on her forehead.
If you thought face tattoos were crazy, brace yourself for eyeball tattoos. This guy ran out of room on his face and so had to move on to the only bit of space he had left.
The technique was made by Luna Cobra and Shannon Larratt back in 2007. They have since refined the method by tattooing the eyeballs of more than 100 customers. However, ophthalmologists encourage people to skip this body modification.
An Extra Pair of Eyes
You wouldn’t have any desire to meddle with this man. Regardless of what other skills he may possess, he has eyes in the back of his head, and that’s enough to scare off anyone!
Did your parents or teachers ever claim they had eyes in the back of their heads? Ours did, and we almost believed them. If we’d seen something like this, we probably would’ve flipped!
She Loves Geometry
One of the subjects we loathed in school was geometry. Of course, no matter how much you despise a subject, there will always be other students who adore it. This woman clearly has a thing for shapes and lines.
Do you think her tat designer utilized a ruler? From intersecting to parallel lines and many shapes in between, this woman is a walking geometry class.
An Alien Visitor
We heard a UFO was spotted and people uptown claim that the spaceship shone its neon green light and blew a lot of steam prior to landing. They were greeted by a smiling humanoid with strange lumps on its head.
Very much like the aliens we see on TV, this one had green-hued skin. It looked practically like us with the exception that it had two radio wires by the side of its head. We’re trying our best to identify which world this outsider came from.
A Man with a Plan
Openness to personal development is one of the most alluring characteristics we search for in a partner. They should have obvious objectives and must be headed to achieve every one of them. Take this person, for instance, who had spent almost $28,000 on his tattoos. He says he’s not yet wrapped up.
With countless designs covering his whole body, we can’t envision what other place he’ll have his next tattoo done. He will have to clear up space. Any suggestions?
Niccolo Machiavelli says, “it’s better to be feared than loved.” Regardless of whether it be plundering, burning vehicles, or battering individuals, many gang members will go to such lengths to rouse fear.
This guy took a simpler approach and had a spider tattooed on his face. Nearly everybody fears those eight-legged creatures. We wonder how many times he’s been slapped in the face by someone thinking the spider is real.
A Guiding Light
This man has a tough time at job interviews. He noticed that others with tattoos are similarly discriminated against. Determined to do something about it, he took to social media empowering people to stand up for the artwork on their bodies.
Many have reacted positively. They say they’ve felt confident to add more tattoos since reading this guy’s posts. They are also getting real with employers who discriminate based on looks. Employment opportunities ought to be founded on merit, not tattoos.
While some tattoos on this rundown look like clear mistakes, this one is quite pretty. The tones are bright and the woman looks rational. However, it’s such a bold pattern that we wonder if she’ll always be happy having it on her face.
She could have that superb tattoo on her arms or chest. It would be a dazzling contrast to her glowing face. One thing to remember is that certain colors (like pinks, reds, and oranges) don’t respond well to laser, so a tattoo like this may not be able to be removed.
No Mystery Here
This guy decided to put it all out there for everyone to see. Why hold back, right? Anyone who decides to give him a chance after reading his message must truly be a good person.
Still, we don’t think anyone should undercut themselves like this. We hope he gets it removed. However, if he doesn’t, at least it will be a good conversation starter!
“Make America Great Again” is a slogan that was popularized by Donald Trump during his presidential campaign. It implied that America had lost its former greatness and was slipping into decline. This man doesn’t agree at all.
It’s great to see that he loves America, but it’s safe to say that he went a little over the edge with his sense of nationalism. We’re pretty sure the United States will do just fine without all that ink. However, we’d never say that to his face.
Let’s Play Chess!
Normally, when someone passes out at a party, the favorite joke is to draw on their face. This guy has beaten everyone to the punch by getting in first. So, the next best thing if he passes out is to pull out the chess pieces and have a game.
Of course, you might need to add something sticky to the bottom of the pieces to ensure they don’t fall off, especially when you’re playing on the outer edges of the board.
The Visual Artist
John Yuyi, a Taiwanese visual artist, depends on the internet to communicate her presence. In contrast to individuals on this list, she creates impermanent body tattoos and applies them to her face in different looks.
The artist creates works that we imagine Andy Warhol would love if he were alive today. Thankfully, she can wash her face and be free of the tattoos at the end of the day. The next person on this list isn’t so lucky.
The Design Styles
It’s important to see your tattoo artist’s social media accounts so that you can take note of the comments from their past clients. Verify whether their store is perfect and what sanitization measures are followed. Does their style jive with yours?
If you walk in and see this person waiting to tattoo you, it might be a good idea to express gratitude for the artist’s time and be on your way. Unless, of course, you like the overcrowded face tattoo look, complete with a tiny drawn-on mustache.
Receding Hairline? What Receding Hairline?
Men generally don’t seem to be under as much pressure as women to “stay young.” However, the one thing many guys are self-conscious about is their hairline. If they notice that it’s receding, they often go to great lengths to prevent themselves from going bald.
Rather than getting treatment or resorting to hats or toupees, this guy took a unique approach. That’s one very square hairline that will never recede.
The Perfect Distraction
We can’t help but wonder if this guy and the last guy are friends. They’ve both taken their own approach to dealing with receding hairlines. This guy embraced it, creating tattooed tracks leading down from it and onto his face.
Can you imagine if your partner came home to you with a face like this? On closer inspection, you see that it’s not fake – it’s a real tattoo and that’s how he’s going to look for the rest of his life. Would you stick with him?
Surveys suggest that more than 20% of people have tattoos nowadays. Even among the heavily tattooed folk, many people either save their faces for last or avoid tattooing them altogether. This guy took the opposite route and went straight for the face.
It’s such an odd idea to have someone else’s face tattooed on your own. We’re assuming it’s his child. However, it could be a baby photo of himself. Perhaps he just wanted to remain baby-faced forever.
Some people are born beautiful. They don’t have to put any work into their appearance, and they’re often the envy of their friends. This guy was one of them, but he couldn’t leave well enough alone.
We could gaze at those heavy-lidded eyes all day. Those lips are beyond words, and that appearance is close to unblemished. The one saving grace here is that it’s possible those tattoos aren’t permanent. We hope for his sake it’s the work of a permanent marker, not permanent tattoo ink!
There was a time when most people with tattoos were gang members. You could easily tell which crew they were in by assessing the design of their tattoos. Yakuzas would sport mythological creatures like dragons and koi fishes.
Which gang do you think this person had a place with? It doesn’t help that he has a PVC pipe protruding from his lower lip. That massive nose ring is also quite distracting. Indeed, there are plenty of things to unpack here!
The Fly Stays
This father was taking a nap when he felt a smack directly across his face. His eyes shuddered for a couple of moments and acclimated to his little child gazing at him. He saw that she was moving her hand back once more, saying “keep still, Daddy!”
This new tattoo will definitely take some getting used to. It will forever look like there’s something on his face that needs to be shooed away. We hope he doesn’t mind getting slapped in the face by well-meaning friends and family members!
The Psychedelic Business Man
Can you imagine how much more lively the office would be if you worked with this guy? We’re all for inclusivity and believe tattooed people have a right to pursue their dreams, even if they have a face full of ink like this gentleman.
It’s not a look any of us would go for, but who are we to tell others what they can do to their faces? The man is clearly happy, so does anything else really matter?
Crazy With Ink
Have you heard of the Brutal Black Project? It was an attempt by two artists to break away from the prettiness that had crept into mainstream tattooing and explore the darker side of body modification.
Rough, dark lines are a feature of this style, just like the ones you can see on this man’s face, neck, ear, arms, and chest. Pain was also important in the Brutal Black Project, so this man truly suffered for that face tattoo.
