Woman in tears over innocent tattoo attempt that left her mortified after huge fail

Woman in tears over innocent tattoo attempt that left her mortified after huge fail

The vision was there, but it wasn't very well executed

If the internet has taught us anything, it’s that getting a tattoo only to end up seriously regretting it is all too common.

Whether or not I include myself in this remains private.

Even worse off are the ones people get them after a few too many on chaotic holidays.

We’ve all heard the stories, with some of them becoming something of an urban legend.

Thanks to TikTok, we’re launched straight into the lives - and fragile emotions - of people with fresh ink they hate.

One woman has gone viral for sharing her devastation when her dream tattoo ended up being a total fail.

The concept was a ‘BFF tattoo’ that matches to look like one thing – but the end result ended up looking like something rather rude indeed.

Take at look at the NSFW ink below:

TikToker Anicole shared a video that she captioned: “When you try to get cute matching bestie tattoos and you get two limp d**ks instead!”

The video shows her in tears as she shows off her attempt of ‘half a butterfly’ tattoo.

She showed the two side by side which are supposed to show a complete butterfly - though it wasn't very convincing.

Alone, their tattoos straight up resemble a flaccid penis.

Anicole’s misery seemed to have the opposite effect on the video sharing platform, gaining over 750,000 likes.

One person commented: “Well when life gives you lemons make lemonade. There's going to be worse days then a bad tattoo. And another thing, a good tattoo artist can make that into something more beautiful.”

Another said: “That will be incredibly easy to cover up. Just saying, the world isn’t ending.”

A third recommended: “Just go get the rest of the butterfly done so it looks like an actual butterfly.”

And it seems that’s exactly what Anicole did.

She shared in a follow up video her new ink, which is a much more ornate set of butterflies and flowers all over her upper arm.

The person who recommended the cover up responded by saying: “Turned out awesome! Happy for you.”

Always think twice before getting inked. Tattoo removal is eye-wateringly expensive and it isn’t always this easy to get a cute cover up.

Lesson learned!
