Bad tattoos are nothing short of an urban legend - there are so many posts dedicated to them, and yet you never see one in real life. For better or for worse these tattoo fails are kept hidden in sweater sleeves, pants or socks. Seeing one is as rare as a unicorn sighting.

There's no denying that inking someone without turning it into a tattoo fail requires quite a lot of skill, but if it' so bad that it's actually good, does that mean that your ugly tattoo was made be a professional? When in doubt with the previous question, you can always check the quality of your ink by doing a simple trick - face swap. Just take your body drawing and combine it with the real thing. If it still looks quite presentable, chances are you are good to go. In the list below, though, we have gathered the fine specimens of the bad and the funny face swaps.

The saddest part is that you are stuck with your worst tattoo for life unless you do a cover-up tattoo or muster up the courage for terribly painful laser removal. Anyways, while watching these we do feel pity, laughter is also guaranteed!
