13 Tattoo Artists Share Their Weirdest “Are you sure?” Tattoo Requests

People get tattoos for endless reasons. Maybe it’s dedicated to a loved one. Maybe it’s just a cool design. Maybe you’re just super into an obscure TV show and for some reason want one if its inside jokes to be associated with your left leg for the rest of your life. Whatever the reason, we’re not judging. But some requests were so insane they even made the tattoo artists be like, “Wait, are you sure you wanna do this?” These are those WTF requests:

1. rumh4m — I’ve personally got an Evil Kermit tramp stamp.

Dudes want the weirdest tattoos on their butts. First guy came in straight from the local strip club with the girls signature on a napkin. Second got the word “meme” on his ass in comic sans. When I asked him if it was for a bet he replied no. No more questions were asked.

2. youPCbruh — Definitely the most ‘fuck it, why not’ tat.

Some guys I knew in the Army got really weird tattoos before their deployment to Afghanistan because they figured their was a good chance they would die so why not. One of them got a stick of butter with wings and a face and he calls it his butterfly.

3. fungal42 — These people seriously love their work.

A family friend works for a roofing company called “****” and their motto is #hustle. Half of the office got really drunk one day and had #hustle tattooed to their body. One girl got it on her butt.

One guy decided to 1 up everybody and tattoo himself with the entire company name and logo. It’s a fairly new company but man it’s going to be awkward if anybody ever gets fired

4. Baresark — He was born for that tat.

Once had a customer whose surname was Mackney that had me tattoo Mack on his knee. That was pretty fun.

And a girl who wanted an Anchor with a W in front of it that she said was to represent her boyfriend. He was more unhappy about it than she was.

5. chiguayante — People love their own names, huh? 

I have a friend who has his own first name tattooed on his forearm.

When he got it I asked if it was so that he could remember it. He wasnt pleased.

6. Bald_Soprano — That’s commitment. 

I knew a guy who got a huge Insane Clown Posse tattoo on his back that literally read,

“Down with the Clown ’til I’m dead in the Grond.”

No typo. The real deal.

7. tb5150 — Would’ve loved to know the reason.

After I got my tattoo, I’m waiting to pay and a guy next to me says he wants an angry oak tree. Artist asks him exactly what that might be and the guy says “just fuckin Google it, give me the first result!” After some back and forth, the guy was told he was too drunk for them to tattoo him and he cursed them and walked out.

8. SHMUCKLES_ — Cat’s game.

My buddy and another friend once tattooed himself with a game of tic tac toe

No one won

9. 0PsMum — Damn, that’s shitty.

Not a tattoo artist, but I once had a conversation with a dude in a bar about his penis tat. He had a joint tattooed on his dick because he thought it would be funny to see a chick blowing him with that tat. He said the tattooist warned him that he may have some nerve damage as that’s a very sensitive area. Artist made him sign a special disclaimer. Turns out the artist was right. Dude reported that he can’t get harder than half mast.

I loled and bought him a drink.

10. Mayor_of_Strongbadia — It is definitely up there. 

I think Steve-O’s giant portrait of himself on his back by one of the best portrait artists out there takes the cake.

11. givemeee-a-username — WHAT. This man sounds insane.

Not a tattoo artist but a guy getting a tattoo of my name before we had even met (talking on tinder) I begged him not to, he didn’t listen. It’s forever on his hand now. We stopped talking about 2 days later.

12. ohnonotthesnakes — Like the first artist was saying, guys get the weirdest ass tats.

This one is mine.

One night I thought it would be funny propose the idea of getting a Bender tattoo like Fry has on his butt,also on my butt.

My wife immediately went down the road of “no. You cant/won’t do that ”

So I texted my artist, she asked five times,and finally asked if she could do something fun with it. I said yes.

Now I have a tattoo of bender,smoking a cigar with a banner that says “bite me”

Edit: for everyone who loves this,I’ve been showing your replies to my wife.

We’re on the way to the ER because she sprained her eyeballs from rolling them.

13. bruceybonus88 — Why whyyy get a pun-based tat that implies you have an STD? 

I have 3 crabs I had tattooed on my pubic region I obtained in my misspent youth. Tattooist asked twice if I was sure, black ink takes well to me also, they’re over ten years old and almost as prominent as when they were freshly healed.

Please wait...
