As a disclaimer, I am not a fan of tattoos. I don’t have any, but can understand the reasons (or desires) which lead people to get them.
That being said, I can tell the difference between an aesthetically pleasant patch of ink on skin and a squiggle by a drunk toddler.
Unfortunately, some of the fine men and women below could not, and they ended up with permanent portraits of gaming gone wrong on their bodies.
Behold: Epic gaming tattoo fails.
Arrow in the knee
More like arrow to the brain before I went to the tattoo parlour.
Would you kindly cover your chest with a turtleneck.
Yes, game over indeed.
Don’t be distracted by the deep stare – that tattoo is ugly.
Let’s hope that is only permanent marker, cause that tattoo ain’t leet.
It’s fine thanks, I’ll stay at level 1.
Bit of a religious influence there. You should pray for that tattoo to disappear.
Master Chief Mario
No. Just no.
Wear long-sleeve shirts for the rest of your life.
Half her back is definitely jealous of its counterpart.
Pervert ghosts, staring straight at her boobs.
He should have tattooed control, alt, delete, and ended his own process tree rather.
This person definitely got burned.
This tattoo was less of a success than Sega’s consoles.
The Legend of Zelda
Zelda plus tramp stamp equals “I’m letting my hair grow until it hides it”.
This tat must be about as popular as a version of RollerCoaster Tycoon with in-game purchases.
Turn it off
Make it go away, please.
