People with tattoos know that there is a whole culture that comes along with it and it's something that the non-tattooed don't know about. You don't necessarily have to be a part of it, but there's always support between those inked. Sure there is less of a stigma now, but those with ink are still sometimes misunderstood by some types of silly categorization. A tattoo artist must be a member of some bike gang, right? If you have a not-so-discreet and god forbid funny tattoo, there's no chance of getting a proper job, right? Precisely because of these stereotypes the community behind the ink is alive and well.

Thanks to the internet, though, there is nothing that can bond a community quicker than a few funny memes. From bad tattoos to the pain of contorting your body while you get worked on, there is humor in the struggle, and these tattoo memes prove it. Scroll down below to see our hilariously relatable list of the best and the worst tattoos, hardships of an artist and tattoo fails!

lol I love this! I handle pricing for my husband's shop and omg...no matter how many times I tell them to be more specific and that pricing depends on so many factors, they still just don't get it. "oh, I just want a 22 word quote on my forearm with 3 flowers. How much would that be?" "Ok, but how much for just one flower?" lol

I have a "homemade" tattoo on my palm. It is the exact replica of a sharp piece of graphite from a pencil, looking as if I accidentally stabbed a freshly sharpened pencil into my palm when I was 16. Honestly, it's a tattoo, it signifies my deep love of sharp pencils, I totally am not such a klutz that I stabbed myself in the palm with a pencil.
