It might seem obvious, but I’ll say it anyway – we see A LOT of bad tattoos. From the sublime to the ridiculous, we’ve seen it all. It goes without saying that the majority of the tattoos we see are not works of art – when you’re in the business of removing ink; you remove a lot of misspelt words, ex-partners names and Tasmanian devils.
Most people remember the best and worst they’ve seen – but just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone will always surprise you.
And it seems we are not alone…
Body art has been a fascination for decades. Whether you love it or loathe it, there is no denying that it is very much a part of the fabric of our society, and a talking point over many a cup of coffee.
So we were instantly intrigued when we stumbled upon this gallery whilst doing our regular internet trawl for tattoo stories. The photos are taken from a book by writer Aviva Yael – who was inspired to compile the collection after getting into a debate over the pros and cons of body art. She approached tattoo parlours all over the New York tri-state area, and put up web pages inviting people to share their most weird and wonderful body art, and the entries came flooding in.
The resulting compendium is quite an astounding collection of funny, strange, creepy and down-right ridiculous, and is aptly named ‘NO REGRETS – The Best, Worst & Most £$%*ing Ridiculous Tattoos Ever’.
Of course, no collection can ever be exhaustive – new tattoos are created every minute – and it is this ever changing nature which makes the world of body modification so interesting. We literally never know what will come through our doors.
And for those who regret their decisions, we’re here with the best equipment on the market, and the ability to remove almost anything – a statement that not many other providers can honestly make.
So if you’ve got some tattoos that you’d rather forget, call us. We promise, no matter what they are, we’ve seen worse.
