11 Truly Awful Celebrity Tattoos

Body art is much a matter of personal taste, with tattoos carrying private meaning and affinity for the wearer. But, nevertheless, some ink only goes against good taste — or is riddled with errors or memories of previous lovers. And even celebrities aren’t immune to poor ink. In that vein, here are 11 bad star tattoos which have caused no lack of elevated eyebrows.

1. Name match

Angelina Jolie has a variety of tattoos, however when the celebrity’s marriage to Billy Bob Thornton finished in 2002, the ink she’s committed to him left her with loads of love missing — and a genuinely awful celebrity tattoo. “I will never be stupid enough to have a man’s name tattooed on me,” that she said in the time. Then, she jumped to possess Billy Bob’s title that was inked above a Chinese dragon eliminated by laser treatment.

2. Star studded

She could be a renowned tattoo artist, but Kat Von D has joined the ranks of the really awful star tattoo club. She filmed a fifth-grade portrait of her onetime fire, Jesse James, on her rib cage. When they broke up, she set out to get him removed through laser treatment.

But that is not it. 1 tattoo she does not seem keen on eliminating is just one that is equally eyebrow-raising — the constellation of stars on her face. Face ink is a tough market, since it is a tough one to hide. She will only have to rely on her array of makeup — including concealer and foundation — to cover it up if she so desires.

3. Face ahead

As a former boxer, Mike Tyson is accustomed to being a force to be reckoned with at the ring. However, it’s his infamous tribal tattoo in his face that makes him very memorable out the ring. As in the event of Kat Von D’s constellation, Tyson’s face tattoo is a tough one to swallow.

4. Oh, Marilyn

Megan Fox’s rather sizable Marilyn Monroe tattoo on her forearm is but a faded memory, as what was once a fantastic idea in her book immediately turned to a costly error. Back in 2011, she was quoted as stating she was removing it to prevent attracting ” negative energy” She also famously features an adaptation of a line from Shakespeare’s King Lear on her back she has not eliminated. The ink reads, “We shall all laugh at gilded butterflies”

5. Eyes spy

Cara Delevingne literally inked eyes at the back of your own mind. However, you may have never known they had been staring at you until the model-actress shaved off her hair for a role for a cancer patient. She’s rocked the buzz cut from the very edgy, glam way, but the eyes still have us shaking our mind.

6. Bum rush

Even though it is not found on the routine, Lena Dunham’s “The Odeon” neon sign tattoo on her derriere is not anything short of questionable. She said it is in homage for her having an official “deranged daughter of TriBeCa,” but does not exactly create this eyesore ink harm any better.

The Girls actress has more ink on her torso, which isn’t as observable either. However, it’s equally questionable. Finally, the 1 tattoo that you may always equate to Dunham is the only on her arm of the bull Ferdinand from the popular children’s book. Despite its sweet intentions, even it may have a deflecting quality.

7. Overachiever

Justin Bieber appears to be about a mission to gradually, but surely, cover himself in tattoos. And though the messages supporting his ink are often ones of faith, family members, and other important pillars, one of his most recent bits has us wondering when enough is enough. While he has a lion, bear , and cross round his torso, he recently inserted “Son of God” with a bald eagle across his belly. 1 thing is certain, he just gave himself motivation to never lose his abs.

8. Clip art

Miley Cyrus is just another singing star who has quite the collection of human art, although several her tattoos are quite small. Still, the little clip-art style look is probably not to everyone’s taste because it looks so arbitrary. Her right arm is home to a creature enamel on her buttocks, Roman numerals inside her skirt, arrows beneath her skirt, a portrait of her grandmother and an anatomical heart in her forearm, and an anchor on her wrist. On her right hand, her hands are home to an equal sign, a peace symbol, a crossover, “Bad” from the Michael Jackson record, and the term “karma.” On her knuckles she’s a heart, an evil eye, a submerged mind, and a watermelon slice. Whew!

9. Italian job

Tattoo misspellings and misrepresentations may occur even to the star set — and they rank fairly high on the unfortunate, horrible list. Hayden Panettiere fell prey to these when she filmed “live without regrets” in Italian on the side of her rib cage. But, alas, among the words has been misspelled. She’s since gotten the tattoo removed. However, it read, “Vivere senza rimipianti.” The final word should have been “rimpianti.”

10. Moth to the fire

Lady Gaga isn’t a stranger to getting inked, but among her latest body artwork decisions was fairly awful. Thus, it is a fantastic thing it was just temporary. For the 2017 Grammys, the singer showed off a gigantic moth and skull on her rear in tribute to Metallica and their “Moth Into Flame” tune. Even Mother Dragon would not get something so fleeting as a moth — at least not permanently.

11. For goddess attraction

When Rihanna obtained her Goddess Isis body artwork straight beneath her torso, it was absolutely buzz-worthy. While there might be love-hate remarks on this Egyptian goddess of rebirth tattoo, everything cannot be faulted is the message for this. RiRi filmed the “Full Woman” emblem in honor of her late Gran Gran Dolly.
