These Tattoo Fails Failed So Hard They Might Actually Be Winning

Tattoos are so symbolic, that it’s not hard to figure out what is really important to the people who have them. For Latinos, it’s a perfect way to show our connection to our roots, our love for our culture and the pride of being who we are and of the people that came before us.

Obviously, there is an enormous well of inspiration in our folklore and ancestral art.

But what happens when you have a tattoo fail?

Let’s hope this is still a work in progress…

Loteria card tattoos are popping up everywhere and they can be great but you got to do it right. Hopefully, this is just the first session and it’s on its way to looking gorgeous.

Come on…there has to be a better way to pay homage to the humble yet iconic sombrereo?!

This samurai may just cut off that nipple…

Come on people! Nipple placement! How are people not paying attention to this very important detail?

No hair? No problem!

We’ll just throw on some copyrighted Louis Vuitton monogram and ya – problem solved!

And a trend that seems to be growing: face tattoos.

Just what is even happening here? Who is he? Why on your face? What is the whole truth?!

We weren’t totally sure to include this Brazilian artist’s work on the list…

Because “ugly tattoos” are kinda her jam. She prides herself on providing tatuagens peba, which translates to ugly tattoos. And although she can’t draw, people are all about her original ideas and less than perfect drawing skills.

Not only has the tattoo artist gone viral for it, but she’s also managed to build a successful business with dozens of 5-star reviews from happy customers, as well as over 12 thousand Instagram followers.

OK, I didn’t know Timon and Pumbaa could be cute and ugly at the same time.

Like yea…it looks like a 4-year-old drew it but hey apparently there are thousands of people into it.

Also, aren’t stars like one of the earliest things we all learn to draw?

Stars are simple! Why does it look like this? But you keep doing you girl.

With this tattoo the idea is cute but it just didn’t really work out…

Like seriously, love the idea. But that concha looks kinda off, the font – mmm no.

Memorializing the iconic pollo on a stick.

This pollo on a lollipop falls into that same category: good on paper but just didn’t quite turn out the way we hoped.

And I know, who doesn’t love a taco tattoo?

Well…me. At least no this one.

This little taco is almost too cute to include on this list but it just wasn’t giving us that polished tattoo look we need in a good tattoo.

We’re not sure that their tattoo artist achieved the desired effect…

But ya calalte…nobody tell them the truth.

Apparently, we Latinos really have a thing for putting designer brands all over our bodies – permanently.

At least the tattoo artist actually put the right initials…
