Tattoo fails

For every great gaming tattoo there exists a bevy of downright awful pieces of work and we’ve found a few of our absolute favorites. Consider this a great lesson on what not to do the next time you’re at a tattoo parlor.

Super Mario Bros.

It’s never a good idea to get a neck tattoo, though getting “Game Over” inked there somehow makes the decision even worse. You have to imagine it’s game over for this person to ever find decent employment, let alone decent friends. At least this gives them a reason to wear more turtlenecks because we all need more reasons to wear turtlenecks. Thank you, Steve Jobs.

No matter how much you love Bioshock, getting the game’s iconic phrase “Would you kindly” tattooed on your chest is just wrong. Those Adam and Eve hypos won’t save you from employers asking you to kindly get lost, or family members kindly asking you to cover up. We won’t deny how clean the tattoo is, so at least she has that going for her.

Street Fighters

Considering what’s going on with the rest of this guy’s noggin, the Ryu tattoo hardly seems like his poorest decision. Not only does it look like he has a fifth grader as his hair stylist, but he also decided to add seven lines of binary code to the back of his head. Naturally, adding Ryu firing off his signature hadouken gives his head just the thing it’s always lacked; style and class.

Sega Genesis

We all loved playing the Sega Genesis growing up, but we’d never get the system’s controller branded across our chest. Thankfully, this gamer added a few roses to give people something else to look at while she shows off her new artwork. Even with how famous Sega made Sonic, would he even consider getting this tattoo? We think not.
