This tattoo is the Chinese phonetic translation of the name “Robert”. It is very poorly done. All characters are disproportional and missing strokes.

Although sometimes the clients are the ones bring in ugly or incorrect designs, I can’t imagine any respectable tattooist would display this in his/her portfolio.

  1. that has got to be the ugliest tattoo i've ever seen...

  2. He probably looked it up in some book. Tried to stylize it on paper. Brought it to the tatoo artist and said "Make this gawd aweful thing permanent on my body."

  3. oh my god that is soo embarresing

  4. The tattooings even bad. Look at how raised it is.

  5. Ha, it looks better in bo po mo fo!
