‘Worst Portrait’ No More!

If you’ve been on the planet longer than five minutes and have access to the internet (well duh, since you’re reading this), you’ve probably seen the following photo:


Holy shit man, look at that thing. I’m sure you either laughed, or you were shocked, or wanted to burn your eyes out. Either way, you’ve probably seen it.

Imagine how tattooer Scott Versago felt when the guy who has this tattoo walked into his shop. It turns out that not every person with a bad tattoo thinks it’s great. In fact, this poor bloke knew how bad it was, and wanted help in fixing it. From Scott’s Facebook:

He went on to tell me the story behind the portrait; He had just married his beautiful wife and not even three months afterwards she was killed in a horrible house fire accident leaving him to raise their three children alone. Shortly after he went to a local tattoo studio to memorialize his wife and was left with this abomination. He later returned to that studio for one more session, thinking that perhaps “he had done something wrong in the healing of the tattoo” and they butchered it even more the second time.

Poor bloke! Scott was so touched by this, he fixed tattoo for free. This guy will no longer be the laughing stock of the internet, because his arm now looks like this:


Wow! This is a lovely tattoo now, and it’ll only get better once it’s healed. It’s lovely to hear of a story like this, where a tattooer is sympathetic enough to fix the tattoo, but also that his customer doesn’t have to worry about how he looks with his tattoo, and can put some of his ordeal at rest. I love hearing stories like this, and I thought you would too, so couldn’t help but share.
