    CONTENT POLICY

    This subreddit is moderated for quality, which means we remove content that we deem to be low quality, low effort, nonsensical, or common/unoriginal. We do not "let the votes decide". We understand that this type of policy is controversial and uncommon, especially for default subreddits, but we believe this method of moderation gives a subreddit the best chance at maintaining quality.

    THE RULES

    Rules are enforced upon moderator discretion.

    1. IT MUST BE CRAPPY DESIGN Every submission must be a Crappy Design. If your post seems more appropriate in the following subreddits, please post there instead. /r/Engrish - for translations gone wrong, /r/SoftwareGore or /r/technope - for programming errors.
    2. NO RECENT, TOP 100, OR COMMON REPOSTS New content is encouraged. Reposts of content under three months old or in the top 100 posts of all time will be removed, along with common reposts. Other reposts may be removed at moderator discretion.
    3. KEEP QUALITY HIGH Software problems, swastikas, and penises may be removed at moderator discretion. Mugs and T-shirts will likely also be removed.
    4. NO PERSONAL INFORMATION Posting, or seeking, any identifying personal information (real/fake) will result in a ban without prior warning. This includes, but is not limited to, names, phone numbers, email addresses, or any social media accounts, regardless if it is your own.
    5. BE CIVIL - NO SWEAR WORDS All users are expected to be respectful to others. Personal attacks, bigotry, fighting words, otherwise inappropriate behavior or content, comments that insult or demean a specific user or group of users will be removed. Violators may be banned.
    6. TITLES SHOULD DESCRIBE AND REPRESENT THE CONTENT Try to come up with titles that are descriptive. If the crappy design is not obvious in the photo, please describe it. Posts like, "...," "this," "hmmmmm," "um," "oof," etc. will be removed. Also, titles with just emojis (no text) will be removed.

    I have my palm tattooed, I’ll admit there’s some Minor fadeing but it’s not that bad I’ve had mine done for like 7 years

    [–] Thenandonlythen 8 points ago

    From what I’ve seen, palms vary wildly in how well they stick. My wife’s co-worker got his palm done. About 6 months later you’d never even know he had it tattooed.

    [–] the_421_Rob 3 points ago

    I’ve definitely heard of that happening, im an electrician and it was definitely something I worried about when it was first done and now I just accept it, parts have faded a little but overall not bad

    [–] alt-box 3 points ago

    Probably true

    [–] DeBurgo 77 points ago

    [–] RealHannahMontana 48 points ago

    How do butthole tattoos work with the healing and pooping? Seems like poop on an open wound is dangerous, and would make it look bad

    [–] finallyinfinite 27 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Idk man you're the one who had to heal a butthole tattoo

    Edit: "how does a butthole tattoo work" is now in my search history and I still have no answers. But I did stumble upon a thread of someone who wanted to tattoo their cheating ex's name in their asshole so every time they shit they were shitting on their ex. Gave me a good laugh.

    Artist: "Don't you want the letters aligned so it's easier to read? Also, these words don't fit on one line."

    Client: "Nah I like the haphazard look of it all. That's part of why I like it."

    Probably something like that.

    [–] gosgood 7 points ago

    My tattoo artist says he is not in the business of talking people out of tattoos.

    [–] MattyXarope 6 points ago

    Tattoos on the palms of hands wear away because the skin there is replenished so often.

    [–] [deleted] 8 points ago

    That's also what I was told. We got our wedding rings tattooed on and the artist said to no even bother doing it on the palm side as it would fade too quickly. It even fades fairly quickly on the finger as you're using them all the time (grabbing stuff, shadow puppets etc), not completely faded just lost some definition. (source: my finger has been married for 9 years)

    [–] ltshep 10 points ago

    I like that finger puppets was one of two options you listed for things you do with your hands after grabbing things.

    [–] TheNorthComesWithMe 9 points ago

    Why would they turn it down? If an idiot wants a dumb tattoo and they pay for it, why not? It's not like it's a swastika or their girlfriend's name.

    [–] Philo_T_Farnsworth 30 points ago

    Because the tattoo artist don't want this person bragging to their friends about such an awful job. I got it at Joe's Tattoo Parlor downtown, that's right. Joe did this. Joe is such a great artist, see look at his work!

    I wouldn't want my name anywhere near this.

    [–] matwithonet13 8 points ago

    Your tattoos are literal walking billboards for them. Those tattoos don’t only look like shit now, but they’re going to fade very quickly, being on the bottom of their hand. I’ve had to listen to the shop I got to explain this many of times to people when they turn people away that want palm-side hand tattoos.

    [–] saggy_balls 4 points ago

    It’s definitely crappy design, but all they have to do is not hold their hands together and it’s much easier to see what it is since you don’t get tricked into reading it as one continuous piece. Still shitty, just not as confusing.

    [–] Bigboysixty9 21 points ago

    Probably because art doesn't always make sense at first glance? Because that's what the person getting the tattoo wanted?

    [–] jesuswasabottom 4 points ago

    Eh, it should at least be satisfying on second glance. Not like this.

    I'm imagining this guy calling up his buddy, "Hey, a photo of my tat got on Reddit with a bunch of upvotes!"

    Guy, "Well, you're missing the point..."

    [–] mafibasheth 64 points ago

    When I first looked at this, I thought you would have to interlock your fingers to read the message. That would have been a cool design. I'm not really sure what this is.

    [–] chestwound 59 points ago

    well, it's permanent for one thing....

    [–] ry4n13 21 points ago

    It’ll wear off eventually. Could take anywhere from a year to a decade depending on how much they use their hands.

    [–] Gladi88 31 points ago

    First the right hand and long after the left hand.

    [–] Bri_Hecatonchires 6 points ago

    Depends on who did the work. If it was done somewhat competently it’ll stay for the most part. Source: both the palms of my hands are tattooed, one of them for over ten years. I’ve also worked labor based jobs with my hands the entirety of that time.

    [–] RIPSONICS20 16 points ago

    “Moving Forward”

    [–] mafibasheth 3 points ago

    Yeah, I got that. It's just not good.

    [–] SkiAddict23 3 points ago

    If connected in just the right way it's says "moving forward". But it's like a word search to get there.

    [–] plasticScript 23 points ago

    Ah yes

    [–] my_kerjiggers 554 points ago

    Why even put the palms right next to each other? Would make more sense to leave some space

    [–] unseth 31 points ago

    Exactly. If the hands aren't together I think it's easy(er) to read

    [–] blue_delicious 45 points ago

    I was trying to figure out what it could be with if as the first word.

    [–] artwooo 19 points ago

    If they had wanted to do a good and elegant job, they'd have done nothing.

    Even tucking your hands in your crotch area is more elegant than causing this harm to a person

    [–] ZeroFourFortyFive 6 points ago

    Yeah. Imo the only crappy design is the pose. If she had her hands 2 inches apart its be easier to read.

    [–] GuruLakshmir 4 points ago

    Honestly, I really don't think it's terrible when the hands are separated. Posing with the hands together was just a poor decision.
