There’s nothing wrong with being a superfan. I get that collecting shit and having pointless debates can be a lot of fun, and I do it myself (for a living, practically). I even understand the urge to get a tattoo of a pop culture franchise you hold dear, and have nothing against the practice.
But for the love of God, please make sure it’s a good one.
Thousands of people have gotten star Wars tattoos over the last thirty years or more, and there are some really badass ones out there. That will likely be a separate post however, as I wanted to start with ones that make my skin crawl just looking at them. Some are truly terrible, others merely perplexing and most are just a bit…off. See for yourself below.
As much as we all approve of boobs AND Star Wars, when they combine you might want to ensure that Han Solo doesn’t look Andy Samberg and Michael Shannon had a love child.
Come on man. I get Vader, Fett and even Maul, but you want BIB FORTUNA on your back forever?
I’m all for an epic space battle scene on your back, but these look like clone stamped pieces of clip art. And I can’t handle the Death Star heart.
Irish….Chewbacca? I don’t even….
Well, at least he’s not Irish, but I don’t remember chewing having bright blonde highlights or a shoulder length ‘do.
Knuckle tattoos are only appropriate for gang members and suicide girls, not geeks.
AND I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO MENTION THE SAME GOES FOR FACE TATTOOS!
[Insert joke about exhaust ports] But seriously, I think that’s the last place you want a dark blotch on your body, Star Wars related or not.
Dear lord I hope this is ballpoint pen and no one actually paid money for this.
I hate you for making me even consider how painful it would be to get this done.
Not everyone hates the Christmas Special it seems. Do Wookies really need to wear aprons? Like really, that’s the ONE piece of clothing they think they need to wear?
I can’t remotely imagine two things that go together better than thug life and Jar Jar Binks.
Finally, one that isn’t poorly drawn. But I’m still trying to figure out the logic behind a tattoo of an astromech droid that ISN’T R2D2.
