I am a tattoo artist – a client requested this but there is a GLARING error


A TATOO artist has pointed out a glaring mistake in a swing design after claiming a client asked him to ink the exact same one.

The user, known only as honbontattoo, thought the inking was so bad he insisted on creating his own design from scratch.

Shared on the Reddit thread, S****y Tattoos, users quickly piled into the discussion when they realized the design flaw.

Depicting the tattoo of a mother and daughter on a swing, the post was captioned, “Legs are in front of the swing but facing the other way.”

And a tattoo artist in the comments was one of the first to react wondering how his client hadn’t noticed the mistake.

“A client sent me this exact image the other day and asked if I wanted to tattoo it. Like tattooing the exact image,” he recalled.

“I was like, I’ll tattoo the concept but…better.”

Users in their comments were also appalled, suggesting that the final design looked more like a “nightmare”.

“They are like owls, they can turn their heads around,” said one.

“I just try to see it that way aren’t they always feet backwards,” posted another, with a second chiming in: “I have flashbacks to The Exorcist.”

Others couldn’t believe how “tacky” the design was as they called the line work “s**t”.

A user called tinybeano wrote, “I’m sorry but I find these tattoos so tacky and awful. It makes me cringe.

While another said it was ‘artistically problematic’ but suggested ‘at least it’s not another misshapen wolf or dream catcher’.

The comments came as Redditors claimed the wolf a woman had tattooed on her leg appeared to be wearing a bra.

A curious user asked, “Is it just me or does this wolf have cleavage?”

“This wolf has a strong B cup,” posted another, with a third chiming in, “Omg that’s all I can see now.”

And the social media user, known only as Glittering-Basil 3027, paid for a cat tattoo – only to have it compared to Ghostbusters character Slimer, Rain World’s Slugcat and Star Wars gangster Jabba the Hutt.
