We’re looking for Britain’s worst, most classic tattoo

Tag a mate who’s made some terrible, terrible mistakes


There is a truth universally acknowledged: that everyone knows someone (usually a mate of their older brother’s cousin’s girlfriend) who’s gone to Malia, Zante, Magaluf, Napa, Kavos or Sunny Beach, Koh Phangan, Prague or Salou and got the fucking worst tattoo you’ve ever seen.

For most of these people, options are limited. You can accept your fate, that now you are a person with “I’M ON ME HOLIDAYS LADS ON TOUR” tattooed on your arse for the rest of your life, or you can have it removed with painful, expensive laser treatments or apply to go on Channel 4’s iconic show, Tattoo Fixers to have your tiny mistake covered up with a nine hour chest piece that’s 300x the size.

Or, you could embrace your tattoo, decide you will never have it lasered or covered up, and become not just another dickhead with a bad tattoo, but the definitive dickhead with the definitive bad tattoo.

We are looking for the proud owner of Britain’s worst, most beloved tattoo mistake. If you’d like to submit your work of art (or submit one on behalf of a brave mate), email [email protected] with a picture of your ink and the story behind it. You could be the winner and earn back some glory and self respect.

Maybe.
