There really are a lot ink artists out there who seem to have no problem and/or no pride to be etching these grammar/spelling catastrophes into someone’s flesh.
This kind of shit would pretty much kill ongoing business.
Then again, I’m using the term “ink artist” with terrible abandon.
I’m glad it’s not just me that thinks that! I’m forever wondering if it’s that so many tattoo artists are functionally illiterate, or just unscrupulous. Surely any decent/literate human being would point out the glaring mistakes before permanently inking it onto someone’s body?
To those confused about the blinker, I believe it is the indicator light on the car. It blinks the left light when they wish to turn the car left and right for right. Alisha is asking why there is no light they use to drive straight, which is pointless as it is naturally assumed you are driving straight unless indicated by said blinkers.
I’ve said it a thousand time here, and I keep telling myself I’ll let it go. But, seriously? People here think so little of tattoo artists it’s annoying. They ARE artists. Every tattoo artist I know (an I know a lot) are clean, sober, and educated. Walk in to any area tattoo shop and I’m sure you will see all the signs about writing. Write it down how you want it, because that is EXACTLY how you will get it. A responsible tattooer will ask did you research this? Is it exactly what you want? Etc. YOU are the one who wants the tattoo, YOU make sure it’s legit. I know I wouldn’t go in for something, especially writing, and leave it up to someone else to get it right, this is why you review your art before the tattoo starts. Always.
Does a person have any recourse for a screwed up tattoo? I would like to have been there when the artist said, “This is what you want? Read it carefully, check it for misspelled words. You’re sure? Okay, no take backs.”
I agree with somerandomchick but surely the tattooist should point it out. everyone I know asked at least 3 times what I wanted and any adjustments before he had even drawn it. and twice after that. not sure if anyone else is like that but it should be checked…
Maybe tattoo girl is Chinese and she wanted to get some English script because it holds such a deep and personal meaning for her. She should consider herself lucky she didn’t end up with I Love Goat Cock.
ARG!!!! SOOO PISSED THEY DIDN’T POST THE COMMENTS WITH THE PIC OF THE BAD TATTOOO!!!
To answer the questions: DEF is real,
Also if they would have posted the comments, you would see that when someone pointed out there was not 1 but 2 errors in the tattoo, that she WANTED IT SPELLED YOUR!!!! Sooooo, following that logic, I can def see how the artist couldda done that on purpose. If you insist on someone mis-spelling a tattoo, can’t be mad if they add in another error for the hell of it.
and no, she’s not asian, she’s as white as can be!!
Ah… Classic Soup! I have a Kanji symbol tattoo and went to an Eastern diner to ask if it said what I wanted it to – they thought they were being very funny pointing to a dismembered prawn while snickering…
@35~ Shut up. A responsible inker will ask if a spelling/grammatical error is intended and state WHY they are asking. Not just a lame “you sure you want ‘you” there twice?” and leave it at that vague statement. You may think you know a lot of inkers and that + the internetz makes you a credible font of knowledge of ALL inkers, but it doesn’t. The 3 your know doesn’t even begin to cover the amount in the world.
Ooh, look. Another string slagging off Tattoo artists/inkers/victims on Lamebook. How unusual.
@BritishHobo 31: At least Alisha knows what the ‘blinkers’ are for on a car, so she can’t drive a BMW. I don’t think they even bother wiring those little suckers up in the factory… Either that, or she’s even more dense than we’ve giver her credit for; Blinkers are used on horses to make them go strait, not jump all over the place when they spook.
It is my observation that tattoo artists utilise spellchecks at roughly the same level that the average moron utilises the auto focus feature on a digital camera. However two spelling mistakes on one tatt and it seems like we have ourselves a sadistic tattooist.
Insulting someone for not having seen that movie makes you look like the ratard. So go live your ratarded life, watch your ratarded movies and keep on with your ratarded trolling and posting ratarded insults. Ratard.
Lmao. I never realized spelling errors allowed a sentence to “flow better”. Then again I suppose if you’re a moron who can’t spell you’ll do just fine. And the artist didn’t add a “your”, he added a “r”. =P
