Diamonds may be forever, but they can be pawned or stolen. Tattoos, on the other hand, never go away. Even if you wish they would. And bad tattoos never go out of style. Even if you wish they would. Before deciding on whether you really want that permanent ink on (or in) your body for all of eternity, take a look at these horrendous celebrity tattoos as a list of oh no nos. Because you don’t want to end up wishing you wouldn’t have.
Kate Gosselin can take the honor of starting this list with her ridiculous ankle tattoo of Winnie the Pooh displayed above the equally bad fashion statement she typically makes in her choice of shoe.
Steve-O shamelessly put his own portrait on his back, giving everyone a thumbs up.
Jamie Foxx is a textbook example of bad choices by having not only his head tattooed, but tattooed with an undetermined, for lack of a better term, pattern.
Pamela Anderson has a picture of the barbed wire that surrounds a conspiracy theorist’s trailer. Surrounding her bicep.
Miley Cyrus is one tough broad. She actually sat still while having her tongue tatted up with a smiley face she certainly didn’t maintain while receiving it.
Stephen Baldwin typically presents an air of professionalism. Until he removes his suit to show a Hannah Montana tattoo on his upper arm.
Melanie Griffith shows a true lack of creativity with a bicep picture of a heart surrounding a name of someone named Antonio, who she presumably loves very much.
Angelina Jolie made the mistake of having her boyfriend’s name tattooed on her arm. Brad Pitt must love reading “Billy Bob” when he sees his wife undressed.
Gucci Mane must really love ice cream. Enough to have an ice cream cone tattooed on his face, which is where ice cream winds up if you try to eat it when you’re drunk enough to actually get that tattoo.
If you don’t like that one song Ryan Cabrera wrote, maybe you can enjoy the picture of his friend Ryan Gosling that is prominently displayed on the side of his right calf.
For some odd reason Dean McDermott decided to get a picture of Donna Martin permanently placed on his tricep, large enough to extend from his elbow nearly up to his shoulder. Yes, that sounds more along the lines of something Evan Potter would have done.
Hayden Panettiere has a fairly well executed tattoo running down her ribcage, except that it’s misspelled. The Italian phrase was supposed to translate as, “Live without regrets,” but instead reads, “I regret getting this tattoo before learning Italian grammar.”
Of course, Mike Tyson. Plenty has been said about this particular tattoo already, but how bad is it, really? That question is answered by simply mentioning that he tried to sue a major Hollywood production over copyright infringement when a movie made a joke out of his face tat.
