11 Reasons Not To Get Tattoos Of Your Baby’s Portrait

by Will on March 18, 2010

Having children is one of the more emotional things a person ever goes through. It’s understandable that someone might not be in their right mind following the occasion. Much like being black out drunk during Spring Break might lead one to getting a tattoo, apparently the mental euphoria that comes with a new baby might lead some in the same direction. This is really a terrible idea, and this post is going to give you twelve examples showing why. It’s sweet that people seem to love their babies enough to do this, but maybe choosing a non-idiotic way to show that might be a good idea. Just being a good parent that doesn’t make dumbass decisions would probably be a good way to start.

Check out the horror after the jump:

I own a tattoo shop. If anyone left my shop looking like that I would fire the artist on the spot. Portraits are the hardest tattoos to do correctly and apparently the people that did these should not be tattooing. These pictures are what give tattooing a bad name. The worst part is that the artists that did these are proud of their work or there would be no pictures. Some of the pictures that people brought to the artists should not be turned into tattoos and their artists should have told them. Hopefully all these people got these tattoos for free. LOL.

My goodness some people are stupid.

Fact. Babies are creepy. So of course, baby tattoos are 100x creepier, even when done right. And imagine what they will look like in a few years.

Itaintrite March 31, 2010 at 10:34 am

Ps: I think you misplaced a tattoo of Britney Spears.

matt3046 April 1, 2010 at 12:07 am

Its because those babies are ugly to begin with…

Loves To Spooge April 1, 2010 at 12:50 pm

What the fuck is that behind the womens ear in the first pic?

Loves To Spooge April 1, 2010 at 12:51 pm

Shit, sorry, i meant the second picture.

Alina April 1, 2010 at 1:00 pm

Ha, the fuck is the thing in the second to last photo? That ain’t no baby.

Occasional stumbler April 1, 2010 at 1:09 pm

These are some creepy tattoos. WTF were these people thinking.

Captain Medicine April 1, 2010 at 1:20 pm

Spoogy, that thing behind her ear looks like a sebaceous cyst. Look them up on Youtube, they’re fun.

Kimber April 1, 2010 at 1:49 pm

Classy comment, Alina. It appears to be a pre-term stillborn baby, forever lost to a grieving parent, but it is good to know you lack compassion. While I am no fan at all of tattoos, I have a friend whose baby died before his first birthday and this was how she commemorated him; let’s try to be a little tolerant.

Kimber April 1, 2010 at 1:53 pm

Actually, the poor little girl had a chromosomal abnormality and died 10 minutes after she was born. Again, Alina, classy comment; karma is a bitch, you know.

whaaaat April 2, 2010 at 7:41 am

why the fuck would you put clothes on a dead baby?

Newclear April 4, 2010 at 4:15 am

I work with federal offenders on parole and let me say with certainty that the number of tattoos a person has is inversely correlated with intelligence.

Nuclear April 4, 2010 at 11:51 am

Newclear, u simpleminded biggot u.

The only way u can spot a persons intelligence on their tattoos are if they have “stupid” or “kill whitey/n**gers” on their forehead or have chinese characters that actually says “i’m a stupid slut” instead of “happiness and love”.
Tattooists run successful tattooshops all over the world, while dealing with taxes, employees, bisniss regulations and all other biggots like u, and still raking in money.
And have u ever, EVER seen a “cleen” tattooist? except the perfume-ad of Kat Von D…

Get out of church, get some friends and have a life. And a tattoo

Aubree April 5, 2010 at 3:39 pm

I agree with others that these are awful tattoo jobs; it’s not that it’s a baby it’s the work itself.

Samiee April 6, 2010 at 12:56 pm

I don’t know….at least 2 of these looked decent to me, and yet still creepy. Decent ones are 2nd and 3rd up from the bottom. Second from the bottom is good because it looks like the baby, who was already ugly to begin with. Third up we don’t have a photograph, but it looks good to me. Doesn’t make it any less creepy that you’d get a tattoo of your kid…

lisa581 April 7, 2010 at 11:02 am

Well, I know that we’re all different and we all have different tastes but sorry, these tattoos don’t look anything like the pictures of the cute babies – something has definitely been lost in translation!

TM April 8, 2010 at 10:30 pm

Definitely interesting to see the pics. Some of them really made me laugh!

Nina April 8, 2010 at 11:19 pm

This is a fabulous post! Thanks for the good laugh!

Nina April 8, 2010 at 11:22 pm

Um? Wait a minute. Is the baby in the second to last picture dead?

Fallout April 12, 2010 at 8:41 pm

The tattoos are horrible. Period. Now, with that being said, there’s some fucking retarded assholes who can’t seem to get over the picture of a child who died an hour after birth (“Why the fuck would you put clothes on a dead baby?”, Ha, the fuck is the thing in the second to last photo? That ain’t no baby.). Douchebags.

Ben April 25, 2010 at 11:13 pm

I hope the point of most of these pictures was taking the “artist” to court.

James Smith João Pessoa, Brazil April 25, 2010 at 11:33 pm

I have never seen a tattoo that Didn’t look like a muddy mess after a couple of years. You may think you’re “kewl” now, but you’re really just stupid enough to follow a fad. Show some respect for yourself. You’ll acquire enough bodily mutilations naturally without paying someone to do it to you. This goes for piercings and all the rest of that totally stupid shit.

mojo April 30, 2010 at 4:11 am

This is hilarious, almost as funny as a ‘full sleeve’. Or should I say a greenish arm. ehe Here’s a stat, the more tattoos one has the greater likely hood the individual has a psychiatric condition, or criminal record.

Kori June 9, 2010 at 11:56 am

Thank you for removing my friend’s picture. It would be nice if you could also remove the comments of the people who were making fun of her child.

Also, a little common sense people. Would you bury someone you loved naked? Of course not. That little girl was a loved by many. She was born with a chromosome disorder and did not survive but that still didn’t change the fact she was a gorgeous and special little baby. Any human being with the tiniest bit of soul recognize that. The fact that there are people here commenting on dressing her, very obviously conveys their lack of caring, soul, compassion. and basic human decency.

That little girl was a loved by many.

Give us a break….the thing was only an hour old, maybe !! Loved by “many” – what a load of crap. It was just an organism like looked somewhat human.
Grow up and get off your pity pad.

Carly December 25, 2010 at 2:09 pm

Don you clearly have never had children! That little girl may have not had time for people to get to know her, but people who care about her parents and family started loving her from the moment she was conceived! People looked forward to getting to know her and imagined what she would be like. They would have been excited when her mum went into labour, only to have their hearts broken when she died. Just because she didn’t have the chance to live and grow up, doesn’t mean she was any less of a person with a family! Mothers who have miscarriages mourn the loss of that child until the day THEY die, so WHY wouldn’t a mother who spent nine months carrying a baby and then god knows how many hours giving birth not mourn for it’s loss?

why don’t YOU grow up you heartless person! You are clearly a very cold lonely individual!

lizzy March 12, 2012 at 9:21 pm

Ok for the stupid ass whatttt person until u have a stillborn or someone close to u does don’t fucking judge I had a stillborn almost 2 years ago and put clothes on him to be buried. He’s a full person 2 shit u say can be hurtful to others so please dont speak negative of those who have lost a child

Ms.Tee! May 27, 2013 at 2:20 pm

- I think the second one was well did.

mr. norway June 10, 2013 at 10:23 pm

I’m going to make a tatoo of my baby, and if the artist mess it up=i’ll mess him up (that meens he have to learn how to walk agian), and I’m going to make sure he know that before he start making the tatoo.

jessica January 15, 2014 at 9:05 pm

Just because these idiots decided to save money by going to a shitty tattoo artist doesnt mean its a bad idea. all be getting my baby potrait done next week”)

Colby April 10, 2014 at 2:01 am

Being blindly judgmental against ANYTHING shows a weakness of character. Telling people what to do or not to do and showing very biased examples of the horrors that await them if they do not heed your word is poor argumentation with questionable motives and also shows a weakness of character. The FACT is that getting baby portraits is a personal choice and can’t be quantified and qualified by someone who doesn’t like tattoos. The examples of baby tattoos here are beyond horrible. A rule when getting ANY tattoo much less portrait work or any type of realism is to research your artist well. Don’t just look for the guy/gal in your hometown that everyone says is ‘good’. To get an awesome portrait you need to find ‘great’. If you really want it you’ll find it, and it will come with a price tag…but that price won’t be wearing one of the gargoyle-beasts pictured in this post.
