with bonus stencil
By - Condor-Avenue
I’m dead over the stencil vs the result. Big oof
Bro seriously. A stencil that intricate then the finished piece haha
I am pretty sure the stencil is intricate because he printed off a picture from google
I was thinking the same thing. There’s no way they drew that stencil and then proceeded to tattoo that dumpster fire lol
Omg I never truly considered a tattoo artist printing off something more than they could tattoo. Thank god I’ve never dealt with that, but damn this is bad!
I mean, as long as they can execute it properly I guess that isn’t the worst thing. Just don’t bite off more than you can chew lol. Seems cheap to use AI for your design, but AI will inevitably become integrated into more and more professions, for better or for worse.
I was going to ask if that’s what they did, or perhaps use an adobe program.
I feel so bad for that person, especially since that tattoo is massive!
It looks like an illustrator autotrace of a detailed image, and then a shitty transfer on the leg, and then a shitty ink interpretation of the shitty transfer of the shitty autotrace
Now I kinda feel for people who ended up with bad tattoos. I'm guessing a lot of them were sold a stencil they didn't actually get.
I have a huge black blob on my arm because a tattoo artist, "wanted to try out" their new big shader, and completely filled in what was supposed to be the outline of a full color tattoo. I kept asking why it was so dark, and they just kept telling me that it was going to lighten up a ton once it heals. It never did, and they left the shop a month later, the owner said he'd "try and fix it", but i don't think he has the skill so im just left with an arm covered in regret for trusting this artist. It was the last tattoo I ever got, and i was in the middle of a sleeve. Thankfully it's mostly above the short sleeve line, so only I have to see it, but every time I take a shower I wish it were gone. Removal is more than I can afford, so I just live with it.
I'm sorry to hear that, that's absolutely awful.
Can u post a photo of the black blob
No thank you. I don't want to become the butt of jokes every time it gets reposted without context.
maybe let the owner attempt
I seen his work, it's not great. I don't need a worse tattoo on top of an already bad one.
aw come on why not
As a client it’s your job to do research on the artists specialties
How did I not even notice the eye on the finished piece. It’s horrifying
You were distracted by the squiggly spikes in her hat.
Yeah, but isn’t it impressive that the eye they came up with somehow looks into two opposite directions at the same time? I don’t think you can even do that on purpose…
*sees stencil is incomplete* I mean, I’ve already made her wait, I can’t just re-do it…it’s not like this is the *only* erasable part of the process or anything
Mouth is clear give away that this is someone else's stencil. "What's this line here?...gotta be a mustache."
Oh my fucking god hahahaha my eyes didn’t even want to see that because of all the horribleness going on 😂
Was the stencil created from someone else’s work?
Anatomy of a failure. Their reach exceeded their grasp.
We stray further from god’s grace every day.
Is it the Statue of Liberty with an upside down cross on her crown, holding a bong with a syringe, and wearing a stethoscope?
I was thinking along those lines except that she's a "corrupt" nurse and this person might be anti-vax. But it totally does look like a bong but you can see her thumb on a plunger. That's some commitment to the cause lol
Oh you’re right!! The thing I thought was the bowl of the bong is part of the stethoscope! Duh.
It really does look like a bong lol
“Statue of Libtardy”
Jesus what a dumbass.
I don't think I'm that dedicated to anything lol It's impressively stupid
I think the cross is supposed to be the red cross symbol but I might be wrong.
That's a good catch. Nurse having anti-Christ symbolism.
God how can someone do this? Holy shit
And they’re always sooooo big- making any cover up (except for a black out) nearly impossible
Did the stencil disappear after the first line or -
Oh my god
If somebody did this to me I don’t know what I’d do. This should be considered battery or something, you maimed someone.
Brooooooo you have me cackling at this lol
Nope. You’re completely at fault if you let someone tattoo you and you don’t look at their work. It’s so easy nowadays to research your artist. If they don’t have good looking consistent work, why would you sit in their chair? The only way, imo, to get this far in to a tattoo like this is drugs.
You’re right, you’re so smart, this world should be cold and unforgiving. Thank you for your contribution.
What? Lol okay dude
No, you're right. If someone doesn't do some research before putting permanent ink on their body, they should be able to take the tattoo artist to court for battery
Bro you tripping hard daaaaaaaaaaawgy dawg
Imagine taking your car to a repair shop, they fucking destroy it, give it back to you, no charge.
Do you think nothing happens, oh no you’re just out of a car cus you didn’t see the two star google review that Randy left?
The battery thing was hyperbole, but absolutely that shit should be in small claims court if the artist won’t pay for laser removal. 100%
Wow the eye... you can clearly see how bad it is because the artist missed out on the stencil there. Yikes...
Looks like this nurse was clearly diverting the narcs
She's just keeping an eye out for Selener
To be fair, even though part of the stencil is way lighter in some areas, I can still see where the eye should be.
> I can still see where the eye should be.
**Eye** can still see where the eye should be.
I mean, that fucking cross nails every degree of a compass but straight. Fuck sake.
I have no clue wtf the statement this piece makes. Pissy because of vaccine mandates?
Someone will claim it's ironic / intentional / somehow secretly amazing.
I mean my thought up until I saw the stencil was this has to be some sort of style that I’m not a fan of, which is fine because there’s plenty of those. But nope, it’s just a really poorly done job lol.
i really love it 😭😭
That stencil had so much potential. YIKES
That's what happens when the person tattooing can't actually draw and traces everything; Selling them on repurposed art and ending in a dumpster fire.
Look at how much bigger that eye is because the stencil wasn’t there and he just winged it lol
WTF... Did they just give up once they got to the last two spikes?
Not only terribly executed but the design is absolute shit
Well, it IS stunning. I AM stunned.
The wretched refuse of your teeming thigh.
new york shitty
When you need to finish a 12 hour tattoo in 6. Sheeeeeeeeeeesh
That is so bad.
You’re better off just walking around with a stecil
The more I look at it the more I am confused
I thought it was a skeletal Lady Liberty eating fast food with a big soda. So… took me a long time to sort out that she’s meant to be a nurse with a syringe. Very unfortunate.
It's definitely one of those that keeps giving the longer you look
o L 👁️
This is one of those owners, that needs to stay, just an owner.
"The "sweet" idea of owning their own shop, went to this. Probably because drunk Timmmmayy told him his work was "badass" .... why not fill billybobs old station....no need to hire
Holy. Shit. Obviously took an image and created the stencil. Can one sue for this kind of disparity??? Seriously… I’m not a litigious person but i would be cranked if this was the end result.
Part of this would fall on the idiot who didn’t do any prior research into the artist, who saw how it was going and let them continue, and presumably paid for it and allowed the photo shoot as it progressed. It’s amazing what some people can’t see.
OMG thank you for posting the stencil last... The presentation order on this post is flawless. My GOD.
The stencil was gorgeous! so sad.
Everything but stunning
Is that supposed to be a bong?
Thought the same!
I would be LIVID if this happened to me. Just fucking look at the stencil vs the finished piece! The artist RUINED this person’s leg!
That’s not ok.
I just don’t understand how the stencil can be so developed - indicating they know what they’re doing….and then the tattoo looks like someone totally different stepped in…
But the tattooer had to make the drawing for stencil there’s no other way…I don’t get this at all
I’m 1000000%%%% sure the image was not made by the tattoo artist. The tattoo lacks even the simplest bit of technique and knowledge of anatomy. The stencil had a lot more accurate details (like the hands and eyes). I’m betting the client saw the picture online and the tattoo “artist” said they could totally do it.
Plenty of artists trace better artists work and then destroy it on someone’s skin. Happens all the time in these shitty shops.
Yikes! When I was 18 I got a pretty underwhelming tattoo from a "shop owner" with 25 years tattoing experience. Not anywhere close to as bad as this shitstain of a tattoo.
But I found out the hard way, some shope owners have to open their own shop because nobody will hire them!!
Couldnt he make it any larger?
Its like the stencil is perfect, then the ink from it is faded like in pic 5, so the artist decided to just go freehand and now it has an anime girl lazy eye.
I can’t get over how it looks like she has a mustache
I'd say complain to the manager, but...
Oh wow, the stencil didn't transfer right around the eye, so he had to shittily freehand it.
Holy shit that eye is fucked lol. It looks like a poorly drawn political cartoon.
Why are they not wearing their shoes?
I've learned with past experience, just cause they're the owner doesn't mean they're good.
I know you're there, Angela. I can see your big-ass eye.
Is this supposed to be some weird anti-vax shit?
That mans leg is fucked
If you put your finger over the right side it's actually not that bad
Did you not look at the owners work beforehand? Not just his stencils lmaoo
Imagine actively promoting an abomination like that. Wow.
There is so much to take in with this atrocity.
I just....wow. WOW.
Why that? Why there? I dont understand how people think things like this look good
Bodyshaming isn't allowed on this sub.
It's gross though
Is it? Your personality is gross.
You don't know me
I know enough because of these comments.
Good on you
I said something much less direct than this and got an official warning from Reddit about harrassing people. So… just a heads up that person in OP seems to be making false reports because their fee-fees are hurt.
Comment on a bad tattoo? NOT OK.
Abusing Reddit’s moderation policy to get people banned that you just don’t like? A-OK I guess?
Omfg… how is this possible? And I can’t even get a appointment?
lucky for you, he takes walk-ins
I thought 2 of the spikes were the twin towers and a plane for a second on the stencil. This is all so bad.
What happened!?? Something really really went wrong in the execution compared to the stencil
I’m stunned alright.
Homie can draw but can’t tattoo,,, stick to the pig skin for a while longer
The eyes lmao
What in the fuckity fucking fuck???
I’m confident a drunk dude I found off the street could do a better job than whatever that is.
Please tell me this is a joke 😨
If I saw it I would definitely be stunned
I would not be able to live with myself as the artist OR the client 😳
Shoulda just left the stencil
I would be stunned alright after seeing that tattoo
I think it really compliments that persons leg
I think it's kind of cool ngl
I accept any hate I get for my opinion lol
How do you say, "I'm gonna wear long pants the rest of my life," without actually saying it.
Blends in nicely with the varicose veins in the last pic
Coulda put the entire u.s.of a on that leg
Good the dumb anti vaccine dipshit deserves to walk around with a display of her stupidity
Looks like the stencil on the left eye, or the one on our right, was wiped off and as a result it ended up being too big compared to the other one. Maybe that was intentional, idk. The idea of it I dont hate, and with some adjustments it could be pretty good tbh. But it just looks off.
Your comment is worse than the tattoo. Tell me one good thing about this thing. The horrible linework on anything that’s meant to be straight? The muddy horrendous attempt as shading? The disgusting proportions of the face? The cross that barely resembles anything remotely close? All you’re seeing as an issue is the eye size??? You need your eyes checked.
Bro wat?!?!?! How sway?!?!
Damn .. it's so stunning .
I mean… the shop looks nice?
I’d definitely be stunned that’s for sure
I thought she was holding a baby with a needle coming out of its head. Lawd
The left hand is a diamond itself.
And this is why we **go to artists who specialize in portraits**
What's that bulb looking thing at the base of the syringe supposed to be?
Part of the stethoscope, I think
I straight up thought it was supposed to be the Statue of Liberty as a cat lady. Yep that’s a bad tattoo lol
Those eyes though.
Wtf is going on between the stethoscope’s ear pieces??? At first I thought it was an Eiffel Tower scene, but now I’m thinking it’s supposed to be cleavage with a lace trimmed camisole?
I’m shook at how far this strayed in so many astonishingly awful directions…
Heeyyyyy you guuyyyyyyyyssssss.
I've never been more sure that I can own a shop one day.
I don’t even think I could cry through the shock if this were my tat
Duuuuuuuude. That is so fucked up. The stencil was great! It’s very clear that the stencil wasn’t a piece he made. I would be devastated!!!!!
I finally understand why people are a good stencil and go through with the tattoo, only to be confused and bummed about the final result.
this is why it’s so important to make sure your artist can draw. good lord.
Is there any chance this shop sells pants also? I would have definitely asked for a free pair...Damn!
Talk about a bait and switch
This is why I’m scared of getting tatted
That things left eye is my favorite
Omggggg this is hilarious!! And they documented the process… for what, evidence at the trial??
I've been thinking about getting a new piece done this summer, and every time I come to this thread it literally scares the shit out of me.
“Stunning” that’s an understatement!!!!!
Oh no.. there’s too much to unpack here..
How did the stencil end up like that? 💀
Yeah, "stunning" is a good word.
That could have been so good
It hurts to look at
Man…. I’m going to become a tattoo artist. I’m 100% confident I could do it better than this clown.
That nose exists on at least 3 different planes, net effect makes it look like it's pointed at her ear and she just has one enormous nostril.
Looks like Shelley Godfrey drunk at New Years.
