20 Of The Worst Celebrity Tattoos

Body Art, Celebrity, Entertainment, Lists, Other, Shocking

Everyone knows that tattoos are forever. You would think that knowing this, people would try not to get inked with anything they will regret. Alas, some people will never learn. In general, getting a significant other’s name, a random doodle, or just something that seems like a good idea at the time, doesn’t exactly translate they were it was intended to. And despite them always being surrounded by a team of stylists and advisors, celebrities seem to take the cake with a lot of truly awful tattoos. Here are 20 celebrities with arguably some of the worst tattoos ever seen.

Cara Delevingne

This British super model got her favorite food tattooed on the bottom of her foot. That way, no one will ever have to see it.

Kelly Osbourne

Osbourne got the word “Stories” tattooed onto her cranium. Clearly she’ll have a lot of stories about getting this tattoo, but hopefully she’s not too regretful.

Cheryl Cole

The British pop star decided to just go for it and get an entire rose garden tattooed on her backside. Needless to say, Cole must be the butt of a lot of jokes.


Steve-O tattooed his own face onto his back, leaving the rest of us wondering if maybe the Jackass star hit his head one too many times.

Johnny Depp

Many years ago, Depp had to change his “Winona Forever” tattoo to “Wino Forever” when he split with girlfriend Winona Ryder.

Mike Tyson

Tyson thought it would be a good idea to tattoo half of his face. Honestly, he doesn’t need a face tattoo to be intimidating, he’s already got that down.

Audrina Patridge

This Hills star had people wondering what mysterious fruit she had tattooed on the back of her neck. Something tells me she’s not entirely sure either.

Adriana Lima

Apparently being gorgeous doesn’t mean your body art will be. Model Lima’s tacky ankle tat is proof of that.

Avril Lavinge

Lavigne’s lame star tat makes me rethink my fondness of her back in the high school days. Avril, why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?


While this tattoo is a signature of Eve’s look, they are and will always be pretty damn tacky. Sorry Eve, the paw prints aren’t the classiest.

Hayden Panettiere

The actress had “Vivere senza rimpianti” tattooed on her left rib cage. Unfortunately the last word was meant to be spelled “rimipianti.” The Italian phrase means to “live without regrets.” Ouch.

Mena Suvari

While Suvari’s lion tattoo steals the show, the text below is just way too cliche and doesn’t even make any sense.

Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie’s random doodles on Brad’s back turned into a permanent tattoo. While the idea is sweet in theory, this still just looks like a bunch of random doodles.

Tila Tequila

From the barbed wire, to the cheesy heart, to the “C’est la vie!” text, everything about this tattoo is cliche and overdone.

Jessica Alba

Actress Alba’s cliche ribbon tattoo on her lower back is usually covered up for good reason.

Angelina Jolie

Actress Jolie also fell victim to the spouse tattoo mistake, having to laser off the “Billy Bob” text after she and Thornton split up.

Gucci Mane

While this may appear to be a joke, it’s definitely not. Gucci Mane has an ice cream cone tattooed permanently on his face, and he wears it like a badge of honor. Good for him.


Lucky for Ke$ha, inner lip tattoos fade away relatively quickly. This “Suck It!” tattoo is just embarrassing, so it’s probably better that it’s mostly hidden.

Ryan Cabrera

The singer randomly has a tattoo of Ryan Gosling on his leg. Is he a friend? A fan? The world may never know.

Jermaine Dupri

Dupri got this tattoo of ex girlfriend Janet Jackson dressed like the Virgin Mary. Because that’s what cool people do right? Tattoo portraits of their significant others dressed in Biblical garb? Nobody? Okay then.
