Tattoos are a huge part of pop-culture and these days, it's rare to meet someone that doesn't have at least something small on their body. Music artists are big on getting inked, which some feel elevates them to a higher level of "cool."
However, there are some musicians who should have thought a little longer, and a little harder, before going under the gun. Check out my top 10 list of the worst tattoos on music artists.
I used to like John Mayer when he came out with Room For Squares
, then he showed his true colors as a piggish douche who played stars like, Taylor Swift, Jessica Simpson and Katy Perry like a fiddle. So I shouldn't be too surprised that he chose to get the overdone and totally cliche floral/koi fish combo sleeve on his left arm. Ew.
Why People Magazine ever named him the "Sexiest Man Alive" is beyond me. Not only is his face hard to look at, but I can't stand looking at his tiger tattoo, whose tail looks like an earthworm crawling up his arm. I hope he wears long sleeves for the rest of his life.
There's nothing about Pharrell I actually dislike, but for fact that he underwent an experimental procedure to cover his arm tatts with a form of skin grafting is more than enough proof that getting inked wasn't the smartest choice. About the procedure, in 2008 he said, "Its going to be pricey, but worth it.
I think everything he's gotten inked on him is massively regrettable, but especially the Selena Gomez inspired angel on his left wrist. Idiot.
I love Miley, but a sad kitty emoji on the inside of her lip?! Thankfully it's only visible if she chooses to show it off.
An ice cream cone. Complete with red lightning bolts and 'Brrr'. On his face. "At the time I was thinking it was going to represent that I was the coldest MC in the game," he told MTV. Uh huh...
Like Justin Bieber, the One Direction heartthrob has a collection of bad tattoos, but his worst has to be the pseudo Bratz doll looking ink he has going down his right shouder. Paying homage to his fiance, Perrie Edwards, it's just a big fat NO.
Why is Chris Brown such a creep? He beat the crap out of Rihanna in 2009, and if that wasn't bad enough, he followed up his unforgivable actions in 2012 by getting a tattoo on his neck, which looks like a battered woman. While Chris' camp explained it was "a MAC cosmetics design of a skull associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead." I think it's a little too close to the former. He just sucks so bad.
Dafuq. I get that Cheryl considers the oversized red roses that cover her lower back, butt and part of her left hamstring to be art, but it's not gonna look like that forever. It's tattoos like Cheryl's that make me so happy it's not me with that ink.
The Metro Station guitarist and backing vocalist is covered head-to-toe in some pretty impressive ink, but he might have gone a little too far with getting the name of his solo project Ashland High inked down the right side of his face. Eeep!
