I'll never forget my first trip to the tattoo shop. I was 17, probably too young to be there, with my closest friends enamored by the energy of the space. And though I personally wasn't getting inked that day, it didn't take me long to understand why people saw tattoos and tattoo parlors as therapeutic. The chilled-out vibe, the soft sounds of the needle vibrations, and the smooth music playing in the background had me digging the shop for sure. And while I'd love to go off on a tangent about my first experience, that isn't the point of this story I'm writing.

Instead, this is about the tattoo shop experiences of our favorite celebs and our ability to always count on them for some iconic flubs. Whether it's a because of a wild drunken night, a hair disaster, or friendships and relationships gone wrong, the options are really endless. And while the past two weeks of our lives have been focused on the Khloe Kardashian/Jordyn Woods/Tristan Thompson drama, that's definitely a giant debacle we could all use a distraction from. 

So why not delve into the creative world of body ink and the plenty of times that our faves got it all wrong. Or maybe the tattoo artists were to blame? Regardless, here are the three times that we cringed the hardest at the major ink mistakes of celebs. Who knows, maybe this could help you before you end up with some permanent problems.
