Sick and tired of the same old tattoo ideas that everyone seems to have? Come see Helena Fernandes, and she'll fix you up with the ugliest, most horrible tattoos you've ever seen.

The 26-year-old artist of Salvador de Bahia, Brazil, is the proud founder of Malfeitona, a home studio providing what she describes in Portuguese as tatuagens peba (literally "ugly tattoos") with complete honesty. The girl can't draw to save her life, but she harnesses this lack of skill to carve out a niche for herself as a purveyor of original and unique tattoos. Not only has the tattoo artist gone viral for it, but she's also managed to build a successful business with dozens of 5-star reviews from happy customers, as well as over 12 thousand Instagram followers.

Check out some of her ugly-but-cool tattoos below, and let us know if you'd book a flight to Brazil to get one of these delightfully hideous inks put on you for life by the best tattooist ever.

Aaaw this one is cute :) I don't even think they are plain ugly. They are just minimalistic with a touch of "my-4yo-drew-this" :)

How much could a tattoo like this really cost, I wonder? $5?
