Mariano said: Well I did it when i get the university, that's the gift of my best friend, but the tattoo artist don't understand the idea of the tat. This eye means another way to see the world because I’m studying medicine, but now I don't know what to do with that, please help me.
Samuel says: I was young and very stupid. I got it when I was 15 years old and I'm now 37 and I despise this tattoo...thought about trying to get a cover up , but I would love to get this thing removed.
Cesar says: Well this is a "clown" tattoo that I got when i was 14 yrs old. I did it to be cool and rebelious. Well it was done by a friend's drunk uncle, in a trailer, with guitar string and a motor off a remote control car!! Thank God I didnt catch an infection or anything more serious. I am now 32 and still can't wear shorts, flipflops/sandals or any short socks because of the shame!! Please help!!!! Please!!! It's hot in El Paso!!!
Landon says: 17...Drunk...and STUPID!!!. I moved to EP at 13 and grew up in the LV. After years of drug and alcohol problems due to the need to fit in I got this tat because of the crowd I fell in with. The original "artist" passed out after one letter and with liquid confidence I decided to finish it myself on the spot loaded on tequila and rum. This tat has cost me jobs, relationships and even the respect of certain family members. I'm 29 now, clean for 8 years with a fiancé. This tat serves as a constant reminder every time I look at my hands of memories that I wish to never think of again. I desperately want this removed before we get married for the sake of my fiancé, our families, and our future children.
Adrienne says, “My damn atrocious tattoo is a cover up of a cover up of an ex boyfriend's name who dumped me for his male gym trainer. No joke. I was so desperate to get it covered up as quickly as possible that I allowed my sister's ex boyfriend to 'fix it' free of charge at his shop which happened to be inside his mom's kitchen. That should have been a red flag, but like I said, I was desperate. He covered it up with a 'trendy' skull and cross bones that came out looking like...well s*** but I couldn't be all that upset because I didn't pay a cent for it. It was definitely going to require another cover up. I ended up going to a tattoo shop somewhere on Montana. I went to their shop with full intentions of paying for a quality flower tattoo since I figured that'd be the best way to hide what I already had. He convinced me to cover up the skull with a sparrow instead. I figured he knew what he was doing so I agreed. He talked me into something I didn't want and on top of that, he did a poor job of it. Oh, I recently had a baby which left three hideous stretch marks on my tattoo so now it looks as if the bird was ran over a few extra times. To make a long story longer, I have been left with a permanent monstrosity of a tattoo on my hip that I have to look at every day.”
Chino says, “ this tattoo was supposed to be a snake skeleton , I made the mistake of going to a guy tattooing out of his garage and the tattoo came out looking like a centipede then I went to a shop and they were able to cover the centipede up. people are always asking me what my tattoo is its embarrassing hope I win this contest so I can do away with it. thanks."
Anthony says, “ I got this tattoo to help out a friend. He was just starting out, the tattoo looked nothing like the drawing. Worst thing is i thought i was being a good friend and helping out...didn't know i was going to be charged for it($80)! Please help me remove it!! hope he doesnt see this haha. By the way i have no idea what it is suppose to be”
Cosme says, “This tattoo is actually 3 tattoos. At the very bottom was my ex wifes name, then a cover up with some kind of tribal thing...I think? On top of that was supposed to be an Aztec Eagle. But the artist machine "over heated" and was not able to finish. Then he moved to Arizona so he didn't finish. After that that, I went to try and get it removed, but as you can tell that burned my skin and messed me up.”
