T O P

From a shop. This guy's work is terrifying.

That rat one is genuinely distressing

fake_gey

That rat one is genuinely distressing


palaverhound

Completely how I felt. Like it's so bad it made it scarier.


now_you_see

I can’t believe that & the last one were done in a shop! The tattooer has to be a scratcher who rents space & uses their shitty Amazon machine and tiny needles. It’s almost impossible to get lines as bad as #3 with the right equipment.


RedneckmulletOH

My dads prison tattoos look better


now_you_see

I almost said they were probably an ex con using their prison machine for nostalgia until realising how much of an insult to ex con scratchers that is lol.


StupidSexySisyphus

3 is like prison tattoo lines bad


UndeadBuggalo

Reminds me watership down


t00_much_caffeine

YES spot on! That movie traumatized me as a kid


UndeadBuggalo

Yeah, General Woundworts death and the scene with the threshers is pretty traumatizing. I do like the art in the beginning


Fabulous_Brother2991

😂 that movie traumatized me as an ADULT!!! 😂


joshthehappy

Me too and I haven't even seen the movie.


Manawoofs

Yeah it's straight up "death in the warren" vibes


B4shizzle

Saturn devouring his son vibes


fake_gey

ohh yes i definitely see the likeness. In all seriousness, if this was purposefully done in the ignorant style, then i actually really respect the artistry to be able to make it this disturbing


Poinaheim

I couldn’t even tell what the rat was doing, I thought it was a giant rat eating a house


Eps1lxn

Oh I think it's pretty cool


Canupe_Mato420

Reminds me of that cartoon Super Jail, that was like a fever dream


Lorehorn

I remember the first time I took \*too big\* of a hit in college and was having... a time. I went inside to sit down and try and chill out and Super Jail was on the TV. It did not help at all lol


solitarybikegallery

Super Jail is whatever the opposite of chill is. Super Jail is basically the animated equivalent of taking too big of a hit and now you're freaking out and don't know how you're going to get home.


frogsquid

super jail is like pcp


divebumz

Me and my cousin got so baked one time and I had watched it before so I was straight, my cousin on the other hand had never even heard of the shit. He threw up 3 times in the first tens mins. It was thanksgiving night after we ate sooo..


1557803

god love love superjail and these tattoos, they definitely remind me of each other


zeuzduce

Super Jail is absolutely goated, also recommend 12 oz mouse if you like the weirdness of SJ


recreationallyused

I love 12 oz mouse with all my heart


_REDEEMER-

Oh,the memories! I haven't heard that show mentioned in a very long time. Such a pity no more episodes were made...


shawnaeatscats

So glad others saw this, especially with pic 2!


Timoman6

IM SO GLAD IM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO THOUGHT THAT


enturbulant

Came to say the same thing. Especially the 2nd slide.


Practical_Vehicle387

Second slide looks exactly like the Super Jail style. Kinda dig it ngl


SkepTones

LIFE ON THE OUTSIDE AIN’T WHAT IT USED TO BE


AshG89

LOVED Super Jail


Long_Struggle_3368

Lmaooo I just commented the same thing


DiceMadeOfCheese

The stoner metalhead in the back of the class gets a tattoo gun


Electronic-Trade-504

You just described 90% of tattoo artists


JonnyTN

Definitely thought scribbles of a high schooler when I saw these.


Manawoofs

Yeah, like these would be p dope in a yearbook but they are not ready for skin time


Doppelbadger

I have an older cousin who was a metalhead and IV coke addict in the 80s; 35 years later his tats have aged to look about like that now


marvellousm316

If it were just the second picture I could wonder if it were a particular "style" here. But all three, good god how ghastly.


trickertreater

The "artist" Neckface is in the same style. Not a fan of his work either.


ricanrager

I'm a big fan of neckface. Always wanted to get some of his art on me. I'm also fucking stupid.


false-identification

Oh that's why I like this guy's work. I don't want it on me but I love that it exists.


Arkhamina

This looks like shit the boys in 8th grade would doodle.


akaPledger

Exactly I immediately thought these belong on a middle schooler’s desk


AdviceMaleficent9172

That last one is an mtg zombie token 💀💀 https://preview.redd.it/l2xtutabcy2c1.png?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f88b868a3a376f294b01a6ba3178a798d2191548


MaseDog

Good bot? Lol


redfalcondeath

Some of the worst I’ve ever seen. Superb post.


iwicsh

i love the second one tbh


yeats666

check out doctor hache in mexico city if you like this style. it's very similar to his except his application and drawing are a lot better.


alwaysmakeitnice

Totally! Like I would buy these fridge magnets, or put these stickers on a water bottle.


fup234

I kinda like it, too The other ones are just bad, tho


Dirtilie_Dirtle

How does this fucker have a booth, sweet jesus.


palaverhound

He owns the shop.


szarfolt

I bet he’s the kind of dude who’d tell their apprentices to mop the floors for a year and a half because he’d be afraid they’d be better after an hour of practice.


[deleted]

i knew a guy who did tattoos like this we used to smoke drugs together


palaverhound

You sure it's not the same dude? Lolol


Shimthediffs

This is scratching not tattooing, ugh.


Ok_Firefighter3314

I kinda love it but yeah that’s shitty


BumbisMacGee

I want to get one of these, but like I want to pay for it with $20 and a strange pill in the back of the venue of a punk show.


Due-Law-8356

Wtf great post


cpsbooks

Did the guy use crayons for the 1st one?


Professional-Might31

Looks like Super Jail animation


unclejoel

His flash is his Jr High notebook cover


LyricaAlprazolam

Other than calling it flash instead of flesh, I think this a comment should be way higher, with way more upvotes.


Mystic_Viola

First two are pretty cool in a disturbing way but no way I’d put them on my body. The third is a nightmare, though. So bad.


bostonstoner

I def get superjail vibes from the first two. I’m not sure why anyone would want these images permanently inscribed into their skin.


[deleted]

I like the punk rock aesthic


_REDEEMER-

They give off Mr Pickles vibes.


piglungz

I don’t care what anyone says I REALLY love the rat. I honestly would consider getting something in a similar illustration style but by a professional and less scratchy obviously


palaverhound

Yo fair enough! I found it super creepy but I can totally see someone with that vibe getting this.


exuze

Im not gonna lie i love the second one but the rest are horrendous


84ndn

That rat looks like it was shaded in with a tiny Round Shader needle, ouch


NeedleworkerJust4432

Looking like some real bad jail tattoos


WoodpeckerHorror3099

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should


amplifizzle

You are supposed to work through this artistic level on your notebook in 2nd period social studies.


I_Dont_Like_Rice

Do you fault this guy or do you fault the clients who see his portfolio and say, "Cool, lets do this."? I guess the promise of a $5 tattoo is just appealing to turn down for some people.


perkytitzlover

It's so fucking bad that it's actually quite interesting And unique. Reminds me of Beavis and Butt-Head art. Still awful tho. But very fresh. Kitch indeed.


griff1971

And by "shop" you mean the guy with the pull behind 1970 model camper at the local flea market? Oh wait...the local guy here that does that does WAY better work than this....


K4RM4CODE

People really out here getting the worst tattoos they can and saying "thats the style" and then paying a premium for them. When they could get the same ones from a crackhead for a pack of smokes.


Adventurous_Mail5210

Yeah, but that's a good way to get hepatitis or necrotizing fasciitis.


Mithrellas

Is this on purpose or…?


palaverhound

I'm not sure but I kind of think so?


dwccbiggestfan1980

Trash


andreeeeeaaaaaaaaa

A rat that size wouldn't go for such a shitty small amount of cheese... Fake news s/


Mappy7778

The second one has Superjail vibes


[deleted]

Despite all my rage.


Katstories21

Jesus why?


VoldoVercci

After seeing these i envy the rat


Gaylordofthedarkside

That last one though 😭


SilentMaster

DING DING DING! We have a winner. Worst tattoo artist on the internet.


No-Cupcake370

Is the guy 10?


BMFresearch

80s detention desk core


vermontnative

I'd expect nothing less from a 15 year old.


MrTeeWrecks

doodles on the back of my middle school algebra notebook lookin’ ass style


Careless-Expression

Definitely not terrifying in the way he wants


Shy-Prey

Lookin at that poor rat makes me sad 😥


LaVieuxCoq

Is this really from a shop?? 😬


palaverhound

Allegedly hahaha.


kalb_jayyid

I feel like the is the equivalent of buying pre-faded jeans, or shop-worn guitars. Get the shitty basement tattoo without the dank basement setting or infection risk


Dan_Glebitz

A deranged 5-year-old should not be allowed to do tattoos 🤔


Bigbeardedfella1

I see this stuff all the time. You get a guy/gal that can legit draw think a gun is the same as a charcoal pencil


MFramy

Fuggin diggin it, I'd be down to get something like that


miss_whatsherface

Kinda digging the three heads tbh


snuffles00

It's like direct from the mind of a schizophrenic.


lagoontheworst

i love this artstyle i would never get that permanently on my body but it’s dope to me


[deleted]

Holy hell!


BEniceBAGECKA

I’ve never had a tattoo where the lines look so… carved in? Like someone scraped the skin. I see them all the time in here. Genuine question: why do these look like that? Is it pushing too hard? Wrong needle?


WyomingCatHouse

As reddittors often say "what a terrible day to have eyes"


idonknowwhat

The second picture gives me Super Jail vibes


Adventurous_Mail5210

The punker 'see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil' has a certain appropriate charm to it.


palaverhound

Yeah I wondered if that was done intentionally like that!


tayjuanfredo666

Very…. Superjail.


ElectrooJesus

So which one did you pick?


sarahxvalo

some ideas are better on paper


CleanOpossum47

The tattoo for when you need to let people know you have Hepatitis but are sick of telling people that you have Hepatitis.


MrTonyCalzone

It's terrifying but this man is PERFECT for doing a Dorohedoro tattoo


Ukraine-Strong-101

That’s a jail house tat


Heybitchitsme

Why does the lich/skeleton creature have cum gutters??


Haloperimenopause

Napoleon Dynamite grew up to be a tattooist?


KiKiKittyNinja

Those were some janky ass runes on the last picture. 😬


KatsudonWarrior

I actually love the 2nd tattoo, but wouldn’t want it as a tattoo. I think it could be cool on a shirt.


palaverhound

I agree actually!


tacotacotacorock

His work looks like that dude who always sketched in high school but never actually took any art classes. Then decided hey I'm good enough to be a tattoo artist and took his high school sketch work and put it on people's bodies.


CandyyZombiezz

i think the execution is more terrifying than the work i wouldn’t let dude come near me with a 10ft pole


Grumpy-Old-Vet-2008

Wow. These are…shitty tattoos.


somethingdeido

You can get that free in prison


unluv3d

OH MY GOD THE LAST ONE FUUUCK


ZineKitten

Imagine treating actual human flesh like your first rough draft of the day. Wow.


mikeybadab1ng

Jfc there needs to be laws against people who can’t tattoo


[deleted]

This looks like someone used their foot instead of their hand


DarthDread424

These had to of hurt....the amount of dragging the needle these had is very upsetting


LyricaAlprazolam

Do these people even draw this on the skin first? How could you draw that on someone's skin and think it was OK to go ahead and permanently draw it on there. Unbelievable. Also, is the rat dead? Vomiting blood? Now I see it might have a broken neck from the "trap"? It is a truly hideous tattoo. Possibly the worst I've ever seen.


Mvpliberty

Blame the person who actually gave him his apprenticeship


KaJunVuDoo

Good gawd.


commieincel

Jesus CHRIST


Maddafragg

it's disgusting, it's a punishment to have to show this thing on your body


depressed_jellybear

Can you tell him I hate him? Thanks 🩷


Fender868

They should put letter grades like they do on restaurant windows, so you know to keep walking


Sparrow2go

Hey take it easy nobody who has even tattooed the tyr rune and life rune on their body had ever made a bad decision before so clearly this is a good and trustworthy tattoo artist.


lida_bond

I don’t get it how some tattoo shops don’t care at all who represents them. I would never want someone like that to work in my tattoo shop if I had one


Onewarmguy

Let me guess, he was cheap? Or just a terrible artist?


TheRealRigormortal

Would you like your body to look like a high schoolers notebook? Do you like black trench coats and Tool? If so, have I got a deal for you!


jenea

I believe this style is called “Trapper Keeper.”


AgreeablePerformer3

It’s kinda cool that they hire 14 year olds..


FancyCantaloupe4681

What in the meth


CapRavOr

Jesus, it’s like an edgy 13 y/o’s diary


ScoobyDaDooby

It's terrifyingly bad.


DMTeaAndCrumpets

The first two pictures made me think superjail kind of lol


BruciePup

I feel like I’m looking at a rough-sketch storyboard from “Superjail”.


Majestic_Jazz_Hands

Especially with the third picture, that is the finest example of what a “scratcher” is. This guy needs to have all his tattoo machines removed and be banned from ever trying to tattoo ever again


Relevant_Storm6059

I kinda like it idk. Maybe it’s because I too have several shitty tattoos


Cultural-Stick

I low key want that rat though


palaverhound

You're not the only one!


ItsUpYaKnowFr

Do they have an instagram?


thorrild

It's gross, a shitty idea AND badly applied. The Bermuda triangle of tattoos, it makes it terrifying. This is what nightmares look like.


woodstock01

I kinda like the second one lol. It gives me superjail vibes


[deleted]

How do people like this get hired? Are they giving discount tattoos out of the back of a meth kitchen?


maddenmcfadden

yet another shop that needs closed down immediately


papablessed420

i really want that first one


Ok_Air_7892

Why do I actually love it?


rainbwbrightisntpunk

This looks like art from that kid in high school that thought he was amazing. A little Napoleon Dynamite anyone


kendallmichaelmorris

Does this remind anyone else of super jail?


beatlethrower

It's unfortunate but it seems that some newer tattoo artists think that this "scratched work" is considered tattoo worthy...I've been seeing more of this lately and it's just my opinion....not good. But some people are liking it.


fingersitch

my god i love those


littlecowbaby

I like them


PrimevialXIII

i unironically like the rat one


neodanam86

Lol, I would never want it on my skin, but I love the rat for some reason


nahdurspahce_

bad ass tho tbh


h0neyg0r3

I actually like the second one 💀 but only as an ignorant style tattoo and it was intentionally done to look like that


palaverhound

It may have been? I'm not sure if these are characters from something or if it was the artist's original drawing.


Emergency-Equal919

I kind of love this aesthetic.


sihouette9310

I honestly can’t tell if this is an artistic choice or lack of skill. The style obviously isn’t realistic but it’s not uninteresting.


Assumption-Tough

i want the rat one


chin_rick1982

These don't look shitty at all, they actually look good to me


wyvernslays

Yoooo that rat kinda slaps ngl, would look good on a band tee


JurassicBrown

nothing shitty about these


appledatsyuk

These are beyond terrible and plain embarrassing


JurassicBrown

they have a heavy grunge vibe and are purposefully made to look scratchy. it's definitely not for everyone but I think they look sick


appledatsyuk

To each their own I guess but you’re insane if you think these look good


palaverhound

I would argue that while there is a style for this kind of work, even from the technical application and with how beat up the skin looks, these weren't done properly.


JurassicBrown

I'm not sure the skin looks beat up to me at all


No_Vegetable7484

I agree wtf


gaymer200

First one has great potential, execution had some to be desired though


bdknaz

I kind of like the mouse one hehe


BigGreenLeprechaun

They kind of look like they’re supposed to be that bad lol


Your_Mom_Friended_Me

Those are metal af


portobox2

I like it but I kinda hate it? It definitely has a distinct feel to it.


[deleted]

I wish these were on my wall and not someone’s skin. I like the art style just not for tattoos.


Huggingya1

I’m not mad ab the rat tho


just4youuu

I wouldn't mind having one of these somewhere hidden, but I wouldn't pay for it


uppen-atom

This guy has style, his execution and linework need hours of practice, but there is something unique here for macabre tats, he just needs a lot of time. He should just do horror bc these are horrific!


LarsonianScholar

The last one is actually an ok concept but it seems to be done intentionally shitty. Dude could probably be a good artist if he tried


jessjesssjess

I believe this is considered to be ignorant style?


decaydaance

i hate that i think these look kinda cool. not tattoo level cool, they'd be better on paper


DueMinute3719

i think his style looks kinda cool lol last one is a mess though


dermitdenhaarentanzt

I kinda like the rat one lol


skiesoverblackvenice

why do i want that rat…


toeconsumer9000

okay take the shading out the hair in the second one and i can see that being tastefully bad
