Fantastic, terrifying, disturbing, genius. Someone somewhere thought that getting these things permanently tattooed on themselves was a great idea. I’m very glad that they thought it was a good idea and shared their shame with the www; I hope you will enjoy their faux pas too.

In case you didn’t realise, tattoos are actually permanent, I’m not sure that the following candidates knew that before embarking on the procedure. Surely they wouldn’t have gone through with these monstrosities had they known they don’t rinse off in warm water?:
