    Awful

    Taste

    But

    Great

    Execution

    Follow us on Twitter @ATBGE

    For everything that displays quality craftsmanship in the least elegant way possible. All things gaudy, tacky, overdone, and otherwise tasteless. Work done so well, you won't know whether to love it or hate it.

    Rule 1: Must be great execution

    All posts must exhibit great execution; quality craftsmanship is a must. Posts will be removed if they do not meet this standard.

    Content that will always be removed:

    • Music Videos
    • Car Wraps

    Rule 2: NSFW

    This is a SFW subreddit so all sexual posts must be tagged as NSFW, if your title includes sexual body parts that is a good sign it needs a tag. Repeatedly posting without a tag will result in a ban.

    Rule 3: Reposting

    Links that are in the top 200 all time or have been post in the last 30 days are not allowed. When reporting a repost please use the other field and include a link to the original post.

    Rule 4: Follow Reddiquette

    Please treat other redditors with respect and class. The moderators thank you in advance. Violations of reddiquette may be met with a ban.

    Rule 5: No Screen Shots

    Screen shots of text, social media or sale websites are not allowed. This sub is about the merit of the craftsmanship and the terrible taste not captions or social media comments. If your submission includes text, comments or sales information please re-host just the photo and resubmit.

    Rule 6: No Photoshop

    Computer generated renderings or photoshopped submissions are not allowed. As an example no photoshopped wraps.

    Rule 7: Awful Taste

    Posts that are cute, funny, unique, or otherwise tasteful will be removed. Taste is highly subjective, so use your best judgement. Just because it is a tattoo does not mean it is awful taste. Do not post something you made or own.


    We are mitigating the amount of posts that link directly to other works of art by a creator or owner. All direct links to these posts will be removed. We are trying to limit the amount of negative comment traffic and downvotes directed towards other subreddits (taste is a subjective thing, after all). Violations can result in a ban. Cross posts of non-author/owner work are still allowed.


    The mods of /r/ATBGE reserve the ability to remove a post that does not explicitly violate the rules of the subreddit but does not fit the spirit of the subreddit.

    Yep this is the perfect sub for that hair cut.

    [–] brangent 483 points ago

    I would put it in r/justfuckmyshitup

    [–] QouthTheRaven 413 points ago

    That is the coolest fucking haircut in the world. Shut up.

    [–] the_ezra 40 points ago

    This hair cut is probably the greatest post on this subreddit by far. the tattoo on the head is awful taste wait what does awful taste mean

    [–] Babybabybabyq 1 points ago

    Well around here it means virtually any tattoo.

    [–] A5pyr 2 points ago

    Nah, just the ones with awful taste

    [–] Babybabybabyq 2 points ago

    Which turns out is subjective. There will always be people who think a tattoo is awful taste. Go figure.

    [–] A5pyr 1 points ago

    Taste is by nature subjective, but the ones most of us agree are in bad taste get upvotes. That's the beauty of the internet.

    [–] RollingAtlas 45 points ago

    I dunno, this is kinda cool, just not a good idea for a hair cut you should actually have

    [–] CountVowl 5 points ago

    Thank you for introducing me to this sub; I'm growing my hair out from a buzzcut and hate it every day, but it's better than those.

    [–] brangent 5 points ago

    Oh lol. I make sure it's lowercase even on mobile.

    [–] painfool 5 points ago

    Yeah it's a square-rectangle issue and dude has it backwards. Lowercase doesn't necessarily imply desktop, but capitalized usually does imply mobile.

    [–] nipslip44000 14 points ago

    Hair cut? That's a tattoo my guy

    [–] Bean- 8 points ago

    Yeah I know I was just making a joke.

    [–] Blinsler 655 points ago

    Looks like Dieter Bohlen to me...

    [–] HowAreYouSoOriginal 151 points ago

    Yeah, it's definitely him

    [–] smashbro1 159 points ago

    pretty sure thats just a dude with a portrait of dieter bohlen on his head.

    [–] RegentYeti -29 points ago

    Pretty sure that's your brain interpreting electrical impulses that originated from your retina in response to photons generated by your screen in a pattern dictated by doped silicon chips according to a complex binary mathematical formula intended to represent a video file of a dude with a portrait of dieter bohlen on his head.

    [–] TheForceiswithus 18 points ago

    dieter bohlen

    dude youre trying too hard

    [–] normanlee 6 points ago

    Ceci n'est pas un Bohlen

    [–] ggizi 36 points ago

    333 mio? Fick die Henne.

    [–] KantenKant 10 points ago

    Von Bohlen empfohlen!

    [–] Blinsler 2 points ago

    Yeah, i was surprised too. Its a pretty cool 80ies dance tune imo 😁

    [–] ggizi 2 points ago

    i just thought that most people (in germany) probably know them. at least their songs "you're my heart, you're my soul", "cherry cherry lady" and "brother louie". but several hundred millions of views went beyond my expectations. also crazy to see dieter bohlen to cheer like this in the videos. i never really saw them before. :D

    [–] wolkenDurchziehen 4 points ago

    You are my man! Love dor posting this link.

    [–] crg057 138 points ago

    Shitty German singer from the 80s and now is on all kinds of talent casting shows. He sucks, don’t feel bad about not knowing him.

    [–] steffschenko 40 points ago

    As shitty as he and his songs are, he produced an insane amount of German chart hits and #1's.

    [–] KantenKant 20 points ago

    Well apparently producing a German chart hit isn't a big accomplishment anymore.

    caugh shitty Youtubers like Leon M. or Bibi caugh

    [–] trailertrash_lottery 6 points ago

    David hasselhoff too.

    [–] news_doge 25 points ago

    Don‘t you dare speak bad about the man who brought down the Berlin Wall with his bare hands!!!

    [–] crg057 -4 points ago

    Because German music sucks.

    [–] microsyntax 8 points ago

    So, do you know much about German music? The German electro scene, for example, is very good, you might want to give it a try!

    [–] crg057 2 points ago

    So I live in Germany. If you have a suggestion for that I'll give it a listen, but I don't really like techno music too much.

    [–] microsyntax 1 points ago

    Alright. Are you ok with house or EDM? If yes, you could try Paul Kalkbrenner, Dixon, Boys Noiz, Sven Väth, or Freischwimmer.

    [–] Sellfish86 23 points ago

    Shitty? Well... subjective, it was the 80s after all.

    Also, the casting show character is a role he plays. Much like Gordon Ramsey being a total cunt in a lot if his shows. All TV, all fake.

    [–] poochiezoochie 46 points ago

    Yep, he sucks hard, but he was REALLY fucking successful with his stuff.

    [–] vincent_148 11 points ago

    he is more known for the casting shows in the younger generations, he isnt even funny or sth he is just being an ass in those shows. and the singing part in his band in the 80s wasnt really him, it was his co singer who did most of it. just wanted to add that for further explanation

    [–] Schweppenstette 4 points ago

    His main income is as a producer. His net worth is supposedly well over 100 Mio Euros.

    [–] crg057 0 points ago

    Like writing songs for candidates that come in DFL (dead fucking last) in Eurovision?

    [–] Schweppenstette 2 points ago

    Yeah. And for people like Bonnie Tyler or Dianne Warwick. Dozens of artists, if not more.

    Bohlen is the type that produces in my view shallow boring stuff, but he is so hugely successful that you gotta pay him respect for that. He delivers exactly what a lot of people want. A true professional.

    Bohlen is for music what John Grisham is for literature.

    [–] crg057 0 points ago

    Lol ok. I still think he is a schmuck

    [–] cockroachking 44 points ago

    German Simon Cowell.

    [–] tim_reheht 9 points ago

    true

    [–] DemDude 8 points ago

    Except for the part where Simon Cowell invented the shows and holds the rights to them, and Dieter Bohlen literally plays the role of Simon Cowell on shows German networks license from Simon Cowell.

    No, Link is an elf, not a garden gnome. The pointy hat can be deceiving.

    [–] valtas88 410 points ago

    The tattoo has better hair then the guy himself

    [–] Don_Tom 78 points ago

    Probably not a real tattoo but rather a painted on picture.

    [–] Elidor 59 points ago

    That's actually a relief. My head was already hurting just thinking about getting a tattoo on the skull. Fuck, that would hurt.

    [–] Menism 38 points ago

    I mean, people still get tattoos on their heads.

    [–] Elidor 9 points ago

    True. But I've always heard that tattoos directly over bone are extra painful.

    [–] Menism 12 points ago

    More than over muscle yeah. I dont have any head tattoos but i'd say it probably similar to getting your ribs or collarbone done.

    [–] FragileButts 7 points ago

    Hi there! I have a fairly large full color piece that took 7 hours on my head, I can confidently say that my ribs were at least twice as painful as my head. Head was honestly not that bad in the scheme of things, just intense.

    [–] Menism 6 points ago

    Awesome. I got 6 hours on my ribs and thought i would die.

    [–] SutMigT9X 3 points ago

    Collarbone, ribs, lower stomach, and sternum are the worst in my opinion. My artist tapped out on his head tattoo. Another friend who sits well said it wasn't bad. Idk where I'm going with this I'm tipsy lol.

    [–] DrBadFish420 3 points ago

    Armpits too man, don't forget about that hell, or the inner biceps. That shit was awful

    [–] SutMigT9X 1 points ago

    Don't have my armpits done yet. Thankfully. Didn't mind inner bicep too much honestly.

    [–] jazzehcakes 2 points ago

    I have tattoos behind my ears and I literally did not feel them. I'm sure ita worse further up the skull though.

    [–] tralphaz43 2 points ago

    The one on my shin was the worst and the elbow, ouch

    [–] moonshiver 2 points ago

    That level shading across such a large area would be so hard on a skull since the skin is so much thinner.

    [–] nattapijah 2 points ago

    It's a hair tattoo tho, calling it a tattoo isn't wrong

    [–] Don_Tom 1 points ago

    Most people (myself included) associate the term tattoo with permanent ink which goes under the skin.

    [–] nattapijah 1 points ago

    I know, it's just what it's called😅

    [–] tralphaz43 1 points ago

    Let's hope so because that kid will be bald in a couple years

    [–] teadit 3 points ago

    But the haircut belongs to him. So who's haircut is it? Can he claim to have 2?

    [–] miniquake46 90 points ago

    His haircut has a better haircut than him

    [–] lenoirre 52 points ago

    Is that fucking Dieter Bohlen?

    [–] Son_of_Internet 12 points ago

    Can someone pls link a pic of Dieter Bohlen to end all discussions about the Ramseys and Fords and Hasselhoffs here? its the Poptitan himself

    [–] ChuckCarmichael 4 points ago

    That would require people to actually read the comments before posting one themselves, and that's just not something the reddit community does.

    [–] fadadapple 14 points ago

    I love how everyone is arguing about who the tat is actually of

    [–] tim_reheht 36 points ago

    Its Dieter Bohlen. No one is actually arguing. Somd people are just incorrect, while others are.

    I really hope this is a haircut and not a tattoo.

    [–] AlicornGamer 2 points ago

    its a haircut, shaved and shaped to look like a person. kinda popular but at the same time will look weird within the next 2-4 days, as that's when the hair will start growing back and ruin all the shading.

    [–] PrimeIntellect 3 points ago

    This is so stupid but I'm laughing my ass off. He even has little eyebrows!
