People Are Sharing Ideas for Tattoos They Would Have Gotten in Seventh Grade and The Results Are Painfully Hilarious

Honestly, the bummer about tattoos is that good ones frequently get overlooked while bad tattoos can be spotted a mile away. Whether it’s because they’re cheesy, misspelled, or just an all-around ridiculous idea, a tattoo gone wrong is hilarious and absolutely tragic at the same time.

Whatever the story behind them, tattoos are certainly more popular now than they were decades ago — what with them becoming more and more culturally acceptable. And, as we all know, the more tattoos there are out there, the more chances for terrible inks there shall be.

Often these regrettable permanent body arts are the result of a drunken night around St. Marks, or a teenage indiscretion.

Carly Aquilino, who many of you surely remember used to date Pete Davidson, recently asked her Twitter followers what tattoos they would have gotten, had they had permission, in the prime of their green-ness, aka, seventh grade.

I, for one, know my parents would have straight-up disowned me if I had gotten a tattoo at the ripe age of 12, though as a creative individual, I obviously had several ideas.

Carly’s Twitter followers are no different. Scroll down for our favorite would-be tween tattoos.

The actress/comedian started everyone off by sharing her own seventh-grade master plan. “Mine would probably have been a portrait of Freddie Prinz [sic] Jr. that took up my whole back,” Carly tweeted.

It wasn’t long before the rest of the internet chimed in, adding their heartthrobs and pre-teen mood boards into the mix.

The late-nineties boyband sensation known as *NSYNC featured prominently in the thread, with Twitter user @vanessa_2715 tweeting “NSYNC logo, no contest ;)” and @RaeRayoSunshine adding, “It would have been something NSYNC or Britney Spears.” 

Classic choice. One for the ages.

Some people got really creative with their *NSYNC responses. One user debated lyrics or DMX’s face — but I say, why pick one when a mashup of both would definitely be the better option?

@Rachel_nerdlover had an *NSYNC idea that was so inspired, I’m printing it out for my next tattoo consultation.

Behold this greatness:

Another popular choice was the all-around tween favorite, artist Lisa Frank. I remember being obsessed with all things Lisa Frank: stationary, pencils, stickers, binders, you name it. So I feel like I definitely could have gotten down with @bmillahkillah’s idea of “Lisa Frank sleeves.”

In fact, the more I think about them, the more hilarious the idea gets. These guys are on that trippy tip:

This woman definitely gave her idea a lot of thought. I don’t know where to get glitter tattoos either, Faith, but I’m willing to hunt them down for us both.

image

Then, come other classics. I’ve never read Harry Potter (I know, I know), but my girlfriend is a huge HP fan and she assures me she completely gets this woman — both as a 12-year-old AND as a full-grown adult. 

Having said that, I should probably keep an eye on her over the next few days…

This person was likely incredibly wise for her years, because at 28 I still don’t want no scrub, also known as a busta! A scrub is a guy who can’t get no love from me.

image

Lipgloss Lesbian Dee went for a classier message, inspired by an equally classy brand. And with its almost-comeback late last year, she could have been channeling her inner-Regina George, while being completely on trend.

image

I actually think that with the right crowd (I’m looking at you, Marc Jacobs), this one would still hold up today.

image

Ahhh, Nick and Jessica… They started out as Newlyweds and for a while, it was even romantic. But then they became the poster children for divorce and for why you shouldn’t sign on to a reality show as a couple. 

Hindsight is 20/20, of course, but thank GOODNESS Caitlyn had the foresight (oh, yeah, and age restriction) not to go through with this one.

image

I realize that I outed myself earlier in this piece, but I have to say @aprilbrucker’s tattoo idea is one that deeply resonates with me on a personal level:

image

Although if it’s time to be painfully honest, these drawings would be all over my arms if I’d been able to get my parents’ consent:

image

Actually, it’s a tough call between these and those S’s we all used to draw in our notebooks. The ones where you start out with six sticks and then connect them to make the most epic bubble-letter creation ever.

image
image

Yes, girl. For ABSOLUTE sure.

I believe the first line of the title song here is, “Don’t want to be an American Idiot,” which seems like exactly what you would become if you went through with this ink.

image

This next idea gets 10/10 from me for originality, but it also demands the question: WHY???

image

Unless this tattoo doubles as a quadratic equation calculator (and when does that come in handy, again?), this piece is going to be a big NOPE for me.

image

@TheJeffroLee went HARD as a 12-year-old. But full disclosure, I too wanted a scorpion tattoo at 14, after watching Natural Born Killers and becoming obsessed with Juliette Lewis.

Not the worst obsession, but probably not the best inspiration, either.

image

As enjoyable as this thread was, and as nostalgic as it made me for the very early aughts (#TBT Snake II), the real gem for me was guessing people’s ages based on their seventh grade desires. 

These tweeters, on opposite ends of that spectrum, really made my day.

I’m not sure about you all, but I definitely don’t regret waiting until 18 for my first ink.

A Guy Asks What Men Would Do If Their GF Got Them This Gift And The Replies Are Hilarious

Relationships get torn apart by gift giving season. You either get a confirmation that our partner loves and understands you, or you get something horrible, like socks. Some of te people reading this have probably been looking over at their boyfriend or girlfriend and wondering where they went wrong all week. Christmas is a minefield.

Twitter user Chris Plug decided to stir the pot a little more by throwing out a hypothetical. This is actually a good quiz for couples. How you respond to this question might determine your compatibility. Plug shared photos of a Croc shoe, but one emblazoned with a picture of TV chef and Times Square mainstay Guy Fieri. Also flames, just in case you didn’t know these shoes were from hell. Then he asked the fellas what they’d do if they found these things in a box on Christmas morning.

Weirdly, the answer across the board is “MARRY HER.” Is this really what you want, guys?

I’ve never understood Fieri’s popularity, and reading these replies makes me feel like I’m living on a completely different planet from the men of America. This is what you want to wake up to on Jesus’s birthday?! I guess on the upside, a lot of women know how they’re gonna get that ring. It’s yours if you can stand the humiliation of purchasing these shoes the Devil fashioned. 

Honey—it’s not worth it.

Which Job Would You Get After Graduating From Hogwarts?

Sure, we spent most of our childhoods (and all of our adult lives) wishing and waiting, hoping that our Hogwarts letters would arrive in the mail. And some of us even wondered about what houses we’d be sorted into (luckily, Pottermore cleared that up for us eventually). But beyond that, we didn’t think too much about the logistics of our potential wizarding lives. 

Hogwarts sounds amazing, when you’re not in mortal danger, but graduation and adulthood descend upon wizards as well. What would we do? Sadly, wizards still work 9-to-5 jobs, it seems.

So, time to find out what our dose of “real life” after graduation would have been like in a fictional world:

This Is What 'Game Of Thrones' Characters Would Look Like If Tim Burton Created Them

Tim Burton films hold a special place in my childhood. I remember crying at the end of Edward Scissorhands and loving Batman Returns to death, especially when The Penguin bit that dude’s nose at a gala and when Michelle Pfeifer gets shot but doesn’t die because she has nine lives from magical cat powers, or something. I dunno, it was Tim Burton’s sh*t so it was pretty awesome.

Burton hasn’t put out the most stellar sh*t as of late, with his last really awesome movie being Sweeney Todd, but that doesn’t mean we can’t love the guy’s aesthetic, which is undeniable. 

And although I wouldn’t necessarily think that a Game Of Thrones series directed by Burton would be anywhere near as amazing as the brilliant production they’ve currently got on the air, I do wonder what Burton’s vision would be like if applied to these characters.

Which is why it’s so awesome that artist Xenia Rassolova decided to take popular GOT characters and give them the old Burton treatment for Obsev.

Here we’ve got Bran chilling with the three-eyed crow.

An animation student in Canada, Xenia definitely captured Tim Burton with these fan favorite characters: like Cersei and a pre-handless Jaime.

obsev

The mother of dragon’s here in full effect too.

No character list would be complete without Jon Snow, with his trust Ghost by his side.

4
obsev

Margaery Tyrell, looking exceptionally Corpse Bride-ish.

5
obsev

Samwell Tarly, gripping a book, as always.

6

And all-of-a-sudden-awesome Sansa, who’s probably watching you-know-who getting their face ripped off.

7
obsev

Oh yeah and the halfman himself, Tyrion.

8

This scary White Walker too.

And then the whole cast, posing for a group portrait.

They look pretty dour, even for Game Of Thrones characters, right? (h/t obsev)

These Are The Hilarious Emergencies A Dog Would Have If They Could Dial 911

Sometimes dogs have emergencies, like when they can’t find a good place to hide their treats and walk around the house crying. Twitter user Reverend Scott believes that they have so many problems that they need their own 911 service. Here’s an idea of what that would look like…
