Everyone makes mistakes.
Even tattoo artists. However, their mistakes can usually cost them a lot more than other people. Because tattoos are there on your body forever unless you spend a fortune on lasering them off. And nobody wants to get sucked into a lawsuit they can’t win.
That is probably why one Reddit user decided to ask the tattoo artists of the world their most terrifying moments. When they went ‘oh sh*t’ and knew that they had f*cked up.
So scroll below and take a look.
#1 Some people just take stupidity to a whole new level.
#2 I can imagine how that would be terrifying.
#3 He won’t be loving it as much when he is sober.
#4 It is not supposed to hurt that much though.
I didn’t know this happened so much. And wrist tattoos are not even that painful. I feel like these stories might deter people who want to get their first tattoo.
#5 Okay wow, that sounds….. visceral.
#6 I am sensing a theme here.
It seems that many tattoo artists and clients alike seem to forget how mirrors work. I get being nervous but really?
#7 It probably is better this way.
#8 You have to speak up when you think something is wrong.
When I was getting a tattoo, my eyes were trained on the tattoo artist and every line he inked in my skin. And it might make them nervous but it is going to be on my body for the rest of my life. So it is better to be safe than sorry.
#9 Now, that is one heck of a story.
#10 It’s not his mistake though.
#11 All of this sounds so bad.
#12 At least the tattoo turned out alright at the end.
#13 Now all he has to do is find a Tim and he’s set.
I don’t know how the tattoo artists confused a ‘K’ with a ‘T’. But it seems it was fate anyway.
#14 I can see why he’d think that even if it was an honest mistake.
