We’ve all seen some pretty bad tattoos, whether online or in real life, but this one is so incredibly bad that it’s turned out being something of an Internet sensation – making it cool by default!

When a random 27-year-old dude got drunk and took some Xanax one night, he said to his friend something along the lines of, “You know what? I’m gonna give myself a Pokemon tattoo of Charmander on my stomach tonight.”

The next day, his friend – known only as “yllwsnow2” on Reddit – uploaded this image with the caption: “My friend was drunk and on Xanax when he decided to tattoo a black face Charmander with no experience or artistic ability. The flame saves it.”

Once this image did the viral rounds on Reddit, people wanted to know if this (very) amateur tattooist was feeling regret or remorse for his drunken actions. 

“He woke up the next morning and asked his friend why he didn’t stop him,” yllwsnow2 replied. “His friend said he tried multiple times.”

For those of you who are either too young or too old to know who the hell Charmander is, he’s a happy, playful little orange dragon who looks nothing like the dragons in Game of Thrones, and DEFINITELY looks nothing like this crap tatt.

Fortunately, the Internet took over and this has become one of those “it’s so bad that it’s good” situations, with fellow Reddit users taking the design and printing it onto water bottles, tee-shirts, mouse pads, and even rings… yes, this tattoo even has merchandise now, for god’s sake!

It’s safe to say that this bad drunken tattoo story will only be funny once though so the moral of the story is that if you want a tattoo, wait until you sober up. And if you really can’t wait that long, go to a professional tattooist rather than do it yourself!
