You’re about to see the worst tattoos ever! However you feel about tattoos, they’ve been around for a long, long time. Some people put a lot of thought and effort into tattoos while some get the first tattoo that comes to mind.
The funny thing is that tattoos have a long history. They began in cemeteries throughout China and were reserved for mummies. Soon after that, they were considered a barbaric practice reserved for rebels and folk heroes. Convicted criminals in China between 2100 and 550 BC were also known to have tattoos.
In Greece and Rome, tattoos were used to penalize slaves, criminals, and POWS and decorative tattoos were often looked down upon. But in India, they were considered cultural symbols. And in Indonesia, they represented certain ethnic groups. Perhaps it’s fair to say that each tattoo is as unique as the individual.
With that said, whatever people’s reasons are for getting them all comes down to individuality, but that doesn’t mean there’s no such thing as a bad tattoo. Some tattoos really make you wonder what the hell they were thinking.
