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!

I've seen a lot of tattoos using pic of beloved ones as model... 99% of them were not even as "good" as these kids. I think it's this is the worst choice of tattoo if you want to go for cheap. Either you find an artist who know how to do this and it will have a price, either you do not have the money and tattoo their birthdate

From my understanding most tattoo artist has done at least one on themselves when training so they would probably know way before they get any clients.

Psh, definitely my sister. She decided a $300 tattoo was a better idea than making sure she could pay her phone bill. "No, I won't lend you money to pay your bill after you just bought a new tattoo..."

I get that you became a tattoo artist to be artistic but if you act this judgy with someone who wants a simple (albeit obnoxious looking) tattoo what makes you think they will EVER come back to you when they are ready to drop 4K on a back piece

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.

Ok. But I’ve got an ‘upside down’ tattoo on my wrist. It’s for me to see. Not others. Hence why it is like it.
