Celebrity Tattoos That Should Be Removed

April First is a day for fools, and a day for fools to inject ink beneath their skin as part of International Tatting Day! We’re celebrating by commemorating some of the most unfortunate celebrity tattoos. We can all learn from this.

 

Megan Fox's Tribute to Marilyn

She knew this list was coming and so she's currently working to get her Marilyn Monroe arm tat removed. But Megan, you're hot and Marilyn's hot. We don't really see the big deal with this one. And we're not just saying this because if you remove it, we'll no longer be tat-twins.

 

Mike Tyson's Face Tattoo

We're honestly a little too scared to comment on this one. Please don't kick our asses, Mike! It looked pretty good in The Hangover, right? Kind of?

Hayden Panettiere's Mispelled Tattoo

Panettiere's Italian tattoo is supposed to read ""Vivere senza rimpianti," which means "To live without regrets." Unfortunately, she got an extra "i," making it "rimipianti," which is Italian for, "Hahahaha...Americans."

Tori Spelling's Face on Dean McDermott's Arm

Look, we're all about paying tribute to women here at Maxim. But just maybe some flowers, chocolates and tickets to the latest Maya Rudolph/Kristen Wiig flick would have done the job. Just sayin'.

Steve-O's Self Portrait Back Tat

One Steve-O face on Steve-O is plenty. However, it does make us laugh. So maybe this is actually the best tattoo.

Dennis Rodman's Tranny Tat

Where do we start? At first glance, this tat seems pretty tame. It's a woman with a bangin' body--nice legs, nice devil horns, until... oh wait, she has her own giant rod in her mouth. This is something we'll never be able to erase from our minds, much like this and this and this. Thanks, Dennis.

Andy Milonakis' Table Tat

He rocks peas on his head (but don't call him a pea head!) and a table on his forearm (but don't call him a table arm!). What?
 

Fred Durst's Kurt Cobain and Elvis Presley Ink

We're not sure why Durst would put these two legends on his chest and so closely together, but we're guessing it had something to do with the nookie. Too late? Too lame? We're not the ones with the tat, okay?!

Birdman's Head

Look, we get it. Rappers and face tattoos go together like crazy and Gary Busey. But, when it starts to look like our younger sister's 8th grade notebook cover, there's a problem. Case in point: Birdman.

Remember Barb Wire? So does Pam An... forever.
