“Don’t drink and ink.” “Your relationship is new, but tattoos are forever.” “Spell check is your friend.”

All the above should be obvious rules of thumb when it comes to getting a tattoo, but time and time again, permanent mistakes are made. From misspelled inspirational quotes to unexpected allergic reactions and ill-advised patron behavior, any range of things can go awry when you’re under the needle.

And samsironpoker:
