On Friday, we asked you to tell us about your worst tattoos, and boy, did you deliver. You spilled stories of mascot tattoos, band-inspired debacles, inked monuments to past relationships, and so many more reminders of regret that are now permanently stained onto your body. Here are the best of the worst.
Oh, you have a tribal band around your bicep? I can tell you were cool in 1997. Maybe it’s a butterfly on the small of your back or a shamrock on your foot to celebrate your shred of Irish heritage.

This man tattooed "76ers 2015 NBA Champs" on his ass. Chances are, it is something he will come to regret.
Mauricio Pinillia is not about to forget about how how close he came to bringing his team a stunning World Cup victory over Brazil. That's because the Chilean striker went ahead and got a picture of his golazo-that-wasn't tattooed on his body after the match. Some old guy must have said something vaguely meaningful…
