10+ People fluent in Chinese and/or Japanese share meanings of the worst tattoos they’ve seen

Have you ever seen a person tattooed in a language that you don’t understand and who says, “Wow, that’s so beautiful”? Well, it turns out that this person might not even realize that his tattoo actually translates into “illiterate stranger”.

Unfortunately, it is not quite uncommon to get an incorrect tattoo. There are people with a lot of hilarious stories about it, so we rounded up 45 of our favorites.

1. “Bad words, please”

Those are terrible words.

2. 40 year old white

Seems appropriate for the carrier.

3. “Foreign Illiterate”

At least if he’s illiterate, he’ll never know…?

4. “Beep beep beep lettuce”

You really can’t make this up.

5. One might think that it says “strength, loyalty, determination…”

But it says here…

6. Fat dumb American

Can we meet the tattoo artist who did this?

7. “Emergency exit”

Should someone tell this girl that her skin is not a back door? Does she know?

8. “I’m made of vegetables”

Maybe vegetarians don’t exist in China yet?

9. “Turtle”

This person seems like a great friend.

10. “Free Egg Roll with Combined Purchase”

Much better than “loyalty”, frankly.

11. “Goldfish Man”

I wonder what he did to deserve this!

12. “Monkey”

No, but it’s supposed to say that.

13. “Translator Server Error”

What do you mean, he wasn’t happy about it!

14. “Dirt”

At least he has a nice nickname.

15. “Name”

I guess it’s pretty close…“hope” is a name after all.

16. “Circumcised Squirrel”

Bad enough tattoo to be stuck with for all eternity!
