What were they INKing? People share the stories behind their ‘dumbest’ tattoos – from nipples turned into bicycle wheels to a woman with her ex’s initials on the inside of her LIPS

  • TikTokers have revealed their ‘dumbest’ tattoos as part of a hilarious new trend
  • The trend was started by Hanna Nic, who goes by the username @hannanicbic 
  • Meanwhile, Reddits users reveal their tattoo ‘fails’ that they were left regretting
  • One person got an eye, which turned out wonky, tattooed by their ‘drunk friend’

Body art is a popular way to express yourself but those opting to go under the needle should always take time to carefully consider their decision.

That advice clearly bypassed these social media users who have shared their regrettable designs.

A TikTok ‘dumb tattoo’ trend was started by Hanna Nic, who goes by the username @hannanicbic, who urged fellow users to post their own daft inkings.

One woman revealed she got her partner’s initials tattooed on the inside of her lip – right before he dumped her, while another woman admitted she had her own name inked across her toes.

Reddit users have also taken to sharing their tattoo ‘fails’, including a man with a bicycle etched across his chest and a woman with a wonky eye inked by her mate on her arm.

Here, FEMAIL shares a selection of the most hilarious unfortunate tattoos that people are now having to live with…

But she added that the tattoo has a double meaning, as ‘A Foot’ is the initial of her first name, Ashlea, and her surname is Foot.
