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!

Lucky for him the artist was accurate, he could be "Tampons 50% off"

Tattoos are so mainstream they're not even cool anymore. Literally nobody cares if you have them.

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.

this is also applicable to Graphic Designers: "I love that new print advert by [famous brand], can I have the same thing? "No. It's their design." Ugh...

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..."

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

A true perfectionist with pride in his/her work. Unless you are paying per hour. Then get nervous.

The look of shock I have when I see a face tattoo on a young person is not disgust. More of, WTF, how are you going to get a job, or be taken seriously and responsible?
